Just arrived from a weird and foreign place (known to some travelers as 'Britain', specifically the damp and draughty bit in the North where men are known to wear skirts, and plaid bags of wind are…Continue
"Fair enough, however, the earliest example of what would now be termed 'classic steampunk' that I have ever seen dates from 1984, and is, in truth, completely 'cartoonish'. Drawn by Bryan Talbot and written by Kevin O'Neill,…"
"Hey, if you're still interested in networking via your Wordpress webpage, drop me a line. I'm always looking out for fellow writers, artists, bloggers, etc to link to from my page, and feature there too, if desired.
"Very interesting points. I totally agree, as well, and have followed a similar path in my own writings. While my own 'Wish & the Will' series is pure fantasy, set on a mythical world where myth and magic are real, the hub of the…"
"Long-term writing and illustrating project, Book 1 of the 'Wish & the Will' series. Steampunk in character and design, yes - but also with strong elements of dark fairytales, folklore, cosmic sci-fi, medieval demon magic and…"
"I'm a sad sucker for anything that's Old Norse or inspired by it. It's one of my specialist subjects and something I've loved since I was a kid, and it's great to see it handled in such a different and personal way. David…"
Great stuff, thanks for the enthusiasm. Sounds like an interesting variety of posts there, too. Feel free to drop me a line anytime with thoughts, articles, opinions, etc. - I'm really opinion to suggestion! Am happy to share your…"
I would love to do a guest post on your blog. I just got back from there and it looks like good stuff. I am actually staging a virtual book tour the last week of July and maybe into August in which I will be guest blogging for several…"
"@Peter - if someone as big as Peter Jackson is truly going to be filming the works of Reeve, then it sounds to me, at any rate, that the Steampunk genre may be heading for the big explosion, followed by the inevitable crash, as suggested by my…"
"Well, writing what I write is what I've been doing for 20 years - it's only in the past 5 or 6 that I even thought about getting commercial. Not by 'selling out' and conforming to current trends. Then, it's just a case of…"
Self-employed writer and illustrator of many works, but mainly the steampunk-oriented surreal fantasy series, 'The Wish & the Will'. Book One, 'Sundancer's Regret', is currently serialised on the Amazon Kindle platform, and in its fully-illustrated form via our own website.
In my banal day job I aim to provide IT support, even if my telescopic sights may need adjusting. The rest of the time is spent in a quiet farmhouse in the company of a stuffed wolf, no TV, and a laptop-sized portal to an endless world of wonder. Creating characters, stories, books and artworks has been a major part of my life for as long as I can remember.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
Others with similar interests to me - fellow creative people - an entertaining exchange of opinions, viewpoints, ideas, and works.
I would love to do a guest post on your blog. I just got back from there and it looks like good stuff. I am actually staging a virtual book tour the last week of July and maybe into August in which I will be guest blogging for several sites. So far those guest posts range from "What does Reefer have to do with Punk," "Dieselpunk and the Mexican Revolution," "Creating a platform to sell books on Wattpad," "What is REeferPunk?" and the likes of the post I just put up on SWAG and another one bemoaning the encroachment of steamy steampunk and how slutty romance seems to be the harbinger of death for most popular sub genres.
I have a links page that I would certainly add your page too as well as being glad to host a guest blog myself or write one up on what is going on with you guys.
