Steampunk isn't as different as you think it is.

I've read a lot of steampunk fiction over the last few months and most of it, I am sorry to say, isn't very good. And there is, I think, a reason for this - the assumption that writing steampunk is somehow different from writing in other genres.

Much of it seems to work on the premise that if you shoehorn enough steampunk ephemera into a story it'll be a good steampunk story. I don't think this is quite right.

A good story will stand alone without the props and gewgaws. if…

First Review of Dark Victorian: Risen :)

Happy to announce that Dark Victorian: RISEN is now available :)

. . . self-publishing is certainly lots of work (and a long, learning experience! Not over yet!), but the creative freedom is a great trade from working with a publisher. I picked the editor, my typographer, my e-book formatter, and now even my colourist, a fellow illustrator who'll help me complete the plates for the illustrated version of my book. Is this crazy? Perhaps, but I've reached that point in life where I really would like to do things well, and with as much fun and creativity as…

I won the second award for my steampunk story

I won the second award for my steampunk story (about Calistrat Hadimbu...): the RomCon 2012 award for short story (ROMCON is the Romanian Convention for Fantasy & Science Fiction). Maybe it's time to translate it from Romanian into English.

THE FRIDAY SOCIETY cover reveal!!

Hey all!!  So I am more than thrilled to reveal the cover for my YA Steampunk novel, THE FRIDAY SOCIETY (Dial, Penguin)! 

It's kind of terrifying just putting it out there, and I am especially curious what this community will think.  Before anyone says anything, I do want to point out that the girl in the middle is not just wearing goggles because goggles represent Steampunk, it's actually a part of her hero costume and they allow her to see in the dark.  I say this, because, well, we…
