Laser Lace Letters - Kickstarter Staff Pick!

My project, Laser Lace Letters, was recently chosen as a Kickstarter Staff Pick!  Laser Lace is a tangible steampunk story where you step into the role of the detective, piecing together seven unusual cases using the evidence.  

And by "evidence" I really mean evidence. Each story is a collection of authentic physical artifacts - letters, diary pages, inventors' sketches, fictional advertisements and more!  

Laser Lace comes out of my work in Alternate Reality Games, where I've been designing story artifacts for seven years.  I specialize in telling stories with objects, and that's what this project is all about.  It's like a book of short stories that's been pulped, recycled and reincarnated into a hundred little bits of narrative goodness.

The stories concern a silhouette making machine that has an odd quirk.  Sometimes, after sitting for it, the customers vanish.  The felt cameo that comes out of the machine is all that's left of them.

At the center of each story is one of these laser-cut felt cameos. At the end of your journey, you're left with not only the satisfied feeling of a great read, but also a wearable momento that makes a great addition to your look.

Laser Lace is a product of Clockwork Watch, an open steampunk storyworld that I contribute to.  Clockwork already encompasses comics, film, and live promenade theatre events. Bits of Laser Lace can be found in their new comic, Breakaway, and if you catch the Clockwork Watch crew at Thought Bubble this weekend, you can snag a preview book full of goodies!)

We currently have 12 days left in our campaign, which ends on the 27th. Find out more on the Kickstarter page, or check out one of these tasty interviews.

Just Thought I Would Say Hello

Well I just started here so I guess it would be good to introduce myself.  My name is John and I'm from Texas.  Been into Steampunk for about 10 years now and like most things that are addictive its been my constant thought through out the last 10 years.  I am currently working on a novel set right about the time of the Romanov's demise.  I do most of my writing on either 2 1920's L.C. Smith & Corona typewriters or by fountain pen.  Tried writing on a computer once till I put the floppy…See More

"Not sure if you are still working on this novel or not.  The steam revolution in England was the Industrial Revolution if that is what you are referring to.  As for the word "Steampunk" I would use whatever comes naturally to…"

Currently working on a Steampunk Intrigue novel

Hello everyone.  The novel I am currently working on has a little bit of mad science, political intrigue and of course sketchy figures.  Can't really reveal much just yet since it is still in the research phase.  Havn't been able to work on it in a couple weeks due to work and it is real hard for me to get into the writing with a noisy background and on a computer.  I've always kind of preferred the old manual typewriters and a fountain pen myself.  So I guess till I get back from work it will…See More
