I've been wondering this for a while. Is it because the few Steampunkish films released have done really poorly, like the Wild Wild West, and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, or because Hollywood just hasn't caught on to how cool a well articulated Steampunk film could be?
Bloodrunsclear created this fake Weird West movie trailer by chopping up other films.…

Why is a blank page so frighting? Is it the fact that the entire universe is held with in that empty space and I'm fearful of not doing it justice or am I finding excuses? So I sit here with a million thoughts and a whole stack of blank pages and nothing seems right. Why is that?
Hey all! I made a decision a few weeks back that I would blog about Steampunk awesomeness on Tuesdays over at my blog. What makes this decision extra interesting is I had no idea the hashtag created by Nancy Overbury #SteamTuesdays already existed. Evidently Tuesday is the Steampunkiest day of the week.
In any event, I neglected to share this new plan here, and so, now I will.
Here are the…Continue

I've published my short story "Air for Fire" as a Kindle title here. It's about 4,500 words, and is a steampunk take on the life and death of Hypatia, an historical figure with whom every steampunker should be well familiar... I've posted an excerpt on my blog…Continue

Have you ever started writing a novel or short story but lost impetus after the opening act, unsure what should happen next, but sensing that the arc you pre-planned doesn’t work for some mysterious reason? Then maybe you need to take another look at what your protagonist does after the incident that gets the story started.
Most people find writing the query and synopsis for a story an incredibly daunting process.
Normally when I work on the query and synopsis for a book, I do it after the book is done. However, by that time, I think coming up with a synopsis is especially difficult after I've already poured all of my creative energy into the manuscript.
This time, I'm doing something a little different. I'm writing the query and synopsis *as* I write the book (an 80,000-word…

Two weeks holiday from now! JEPEEEEH!
Apart from moving to our new lakeshore house which i hardly can't await, there hopefully will be time for writing, constructing, sharing information with you about what and who is going on in the City of Ore.
In the upcoming posts, I will focus on a few important characters, their stories behind as well as the role they play.
You certainly will be confused, especially when I take things for granted, which you cannot put into…Continue

Well, finally here it is: My first blog post on S.W.A.G., even my first blog post ever!
Feels good :-)
As I mentioned, I started working on my first steampunk novel a few weeks ago, even my first novel ever (hmm, bad style boy, using the same phrase as above ...; HA! Who cares? I am no English native speaker. Can do better in German.)
Back to the point.
During the last year I had to travel twoandahalfhours (I know, I could use plain numbers to express that ...) by…Continue

I am a clockwork soul.
I am not a big clanging machine, some rusty contraption that screams under pressure. That is not me.
There are those souls that favor the loud noises, screaming speakers and driving thumping bands. These are the engineers of our steampunk universe;
down in the bowls of the airship, feeding the fires of the boilers, the steamfitters and welders. Oh how I love them, they live life with such energy and passion it is a wonder…Continue
