The chaps over at Snowbooks have just sent me the complete,
final cover for the paperback release of the Resurrection Engines anthology, and I just wanted to share it with you.
It's absolutely stunning and I can't wait to see it in the flesh. Luckily none of us will have to wait too long as it will be published on December 1st, just over one & a half weeks away!

Although I have been writing for the past twelve years, or so, starting off with historical fiction of pirates (long before they became popular) and then moving on to Star Trek fan fiction with my own stories of the USS Adventure, I have only been involved with Steampunk for the last six. I was fascinated by the genre when I found models for my cg program Poser based on the style. In researching it, I was led to Second Life and the City of New Babbage. My character, Phineas Frakture, had…Continue

When I started writing I was worried that, as it is when I run a RP game, I'd have problems with developing character motivation. Assuming I could buffer that some with technology and science fiction, I set out to write a work of Steam punk/ science fantasy. I determined, at first, to make the machines the focus instead of characters. Originally, I was going to have only two main characters, but it didn't stay that way for long. I've learned a lot about the genre and writing in general.…

In the course of streamlining my descriptions, I think I've learned something. Don't talk to the reader like they're two years old unless it's a children's book.

I've decided to step back from Dixie Aethernaughts for a little bit before I do the final proofing and such. In the meantime have been working on a supernatural Horror tale. You can see an excerpt of it on my blog.

Since October 2011 two writters from Spain and México came with the idea of an Anthology about retrofuturism, writting in spanish language and then asking all the latin american and spanish community be part of it.
That will be published as "Ácronos"
But many stories get out from the original project, so "Plan B" was born.
The next September 29th in EuroSteamCon Spain "Planes B Volume I" will be introduced, as a steampunk Anthology with…Continue

I've finished writing my novel. I'm somewhat worried that it may not be received well by the Steam Punk crowd. The first half is very much Steampunk-ish but in the second half it becomes hard scifi fantasy with future tech. I'm not apologetic but am curious about other's input.
I've been writing crime fiction under the pen name of Jack Bates for several years now. About a year ago Red Willow Publishing released my middle grade, cowpunk novel, COLT BUCHANAN and the WEATHER WALKERS. (Smashwords link: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/121381)
When a young boy’s parents are kidnapped by a mysterious gang that attacks on tornados, he is rescued by agents of a secret organization that will help him…Continue

Also, to catch people up, my latest books are DARKER SIDE OF THE MOON "They" Are Watching Us! This is now Number #1 on the Amazon Kindle Best Seller List for its genres, and has been for about two months now. And…Continue
