I'm planning to publish my steampunk romance, The Treasure Hunter's Lady, on February 10th. I've done a couple of short stories and a novella, non-steampunk related. Sales are low, but that's not really surprising.

I have several blog spots and interviews inline to hopefully help my novel out.

Hi Allison, is there more information or a link about the story? Is the book being released in print or e-format?

Hello everyone. I apologize for not being a very active member of S.W.A.G. I'm an illustrator/writer who's worked in animation and comic books. Currently I'm working on a YA novel and a steamgoth short story series. The first story is nearly done and I hope to have 2 more done in the next few months. My question is, has anyone a professional copy-editor to recommend? I've a very good editor for my YA novel, but I don't think historical steamgoth set in 1880's London is a good fit for him. Someone Victorian period knowledgeable, sympathetic to Steam perhaps, and accepting of UK spelling will be great. I'm not UK, btw, but I felt the story needed it. Sorry for such a long post! :)

Hi Michel, thank you, you're the second person to recommend her! JoSelle seems very busy at the moment, but I'm happy to have her contact info!

If JoSelle is too busy to help you out, try contacting Rachel Peterson ... she's well recommended to me

Thanks, Michel! :)

This is awesome. I'll have to look them up when I'm ready too. I have a friend who's looking now though, I'll let her know too. This is a really awesome thread, I wish I would have seen it earlier XD

It's coming out in e-book format. Kindle, Nook, Smashwords forms. I love Smashwords for making it available to everyone. 

The book description can be found here. I didn't really delve into the airship/electro-magntic pistols in the description, but they're in the story and they're lots of fun.
