Just Thought I Would Say Hello

Well I just started here so I guess it would be good to introduce myself.  My name is John and I'm from Texas.  Been into Steampunk for about 10 years now and like most things that are addictive its been my constant thought through out the last 10 years.  I am currently working on a novel set right about the time of the Romanov's demise.  I do most of my writing on either 2 1920's L.C.
