Profile Information

Introduce yourself!
I'm the Redneck Granola. When not tanning my neck or proffering hemp clothing I enjoy the craft of writing, blogging, blathering, exaggerating and general ballyhoo regarding said endeavors. A sort of dieselpunk/weird western adventure is where I have landed for my bread and butter genre.
I am currently mobile in residential status and facilitate the warping of my two young sons despite my wife's best efforts.
I drink my tea sweet and my wine in large quantities.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
Community in the Wild Wild West of ebooks, publishing and writing. Conversation and brainstorming for an emerging genre and an emerging business model.

Working in my pajamas. Rejecting routine hygienics.… Continue

Diesel vs. Steampunk: Publishing Ethics

Posted on May 26, 2011 at 2:09pm 5 Comments

When it comes to ethics, the RedneckGranola is driven by a prime directive -- "stick it to the man." Basically, greed and injustice demand civil disobedience.

I have to admit I'm still new to this site and genre... I've never read a weird west book (yet) if you'd like me to read it... it'd be happy to... just need to know how fast of a turnaround you're looking for...

No problem. I got the message to all members and realized I had simply forgotten about that feature of the ning world. I'll try to post every now and then. Although I tend to get a bit cheeky, so hopefully I won't offend!

That would be great, David. If you get too offensive I'll slap your wrist with pleasure. LOL
