I have fairly recently started making steampunk style jewelry from brass copper and other metals.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
I'm looking to learn more about steampunk and to connect with others with similar interests. I'm also seeking constructive comment and suggestions and self promotion for my somewhat unique style of jewelry.

The working title of the book is The Infernal Aether and it's a fantasy / sci-fi book set in Victorian times. The first draft is up on Wattpad.com and has been getting some pretty good…See More
I always enjoy new books. How about you? It's nice when I can purchase them from my wishlist on Amazon and add them to my already groaning-beneath-the-weight-of-books bookshelves, but sometimes I must be frugal and visit the library as well. As a side note, I must say I am very grateful for our local library. When we returned to the U.S. in June (after living in England for 2 years), we chose to live in a very small town. When I say very small, I mean less than 10,000 people. There's closer to…See More
Sounds Of Steam, Bachelors and Gentlemen; Being a Single Man in the Steampunk Scene, March 10th, 2014https://www.facebook.com/events/672286189479848/Single men, whether a certified (Wendy thinks it should be "confirmed", but Travis is definitely certifiable) bachelor or a true gentleman, are often the bane of social gatherings. But they don't have to be. We will explore and attempt to help educate, elaborate, illuminate, elucidate,…See More
