"Hi Gavin, Thanks for the invitation, I have posted a few steampunk stories on Wattpad, under 'Armitage' (my steampunk alter ego) the more exposure the better. Hope all goes well for you. NEB Inskip"

"Hi Gavin, I use Wattpad, and I have to say that I've had a very positive experience so far. I have one question about reads. What constitutes a read? Does a person just need to visit the first page of a chapter for the number to…"

Introduce yourself!
Due to a suspected mid-life crisis and sense of impending servitude to a large multinational, I am attempting to turn my back on a life-time of science (unless there's a little SF involved) and business by repeatedly dumping random swathes of my brain onto paper.

Occasionally this results in a story which may or may not be worth reading, somtimes the results are handed over to an infinite number of monkeys to re-type into something more coherent.

Either way my name has appeared on various short stories that have been receiving some vague attention from those in the literary world, so hopefully this trend will continue in an upwards direction and I can retire to my shed which is waiting patiently at the bottom of the garden with a desk, chair and cask of beer.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
Fellow lovers of steampunk, hopefully fellow writers

The Secret Notebook of Michael Faraday, my second novel in the Airship Flamel Advenstures Series is now available!

The book is a prequel to my first novel To Rule the Skies, although I think of it more as just coming first chronologically.  It follows the main character from my previous novel, Nicodemus Boffin, from his boyhood to about a decade before the events in To Rule the Skies.The synopsis:Nicodemus Boffin, a uncommonly clever boy…See More
