First Steampunk novel coming to a close :)

Posted on August 13, 2011 at 12:05pm 14 Comments

So my first Steampunk novel, which actually would be my debuting novel as my other novel, a YA time traveling book isn't ready yet as I'm agent-hunting for it...will hopefully be out September 15th. That's the goal. The goal is to be done by mid-September as I'd like to go to the Steamcon III in Seattle in October, and would love to have the book launched prior to that. So mid-September early October by the latestl, depending how long it takes my editor.

Science of Steam

Posted on May 29, 2011 at 6:43pm 0 Comments

So there's been some talk about adding more science in Steampunk, and I was researching Steam Traps to double check if they would explode after being abused (say, for instance, by a bullet fired by a vengeful Cyborg prince) and came across this interesting "Steam Traps Manual".

Thank you, Claire!  It's nice to meet you.  I have a fondness for airships, too, and even flew on the Goodyear blimp once, back when I was doing research for a novel years ago.  If you're writing about airships there is a lot of information on the internet about zeppelins, dirigibles and the like that can help give you a real feel about what their structure, weight limitations and vulnerablilities are, which can often help suggest plot possibilities or background details, and then you just have to balance the "romance" of airships against the "plausibility factor" (which doesn't mean it has to be possible, just seem possible!).  I think this is an exciting time, as Steampunk is really blossoming now.

All best--

Gary

The Azure Cat

I'm in because I drew blueprints for a water ship / aerial / spacecraft, It runs on steam, and utilizes a mechanical energy storage and generation device.Within the vessel is a garden, for entirely self-contained food.The one aspect I haven't entirely worked out is H2O generation, i.e. fuel, or perpetual fuel.The ship also has a gamer's deck, in the event things get dull, or the moment strikes.Happy Sailing,SJSee More
