Profile Information

Introduce yourself!
I'm an author and editor at Double Dragon Ebooks, and (unfortunately) a slave monkey in a 9-5 grind. My last book had a Steampunk style, though it's not actually Steampunk as such, but I enjoy Steampunk style and I all being well I shall pop-up at Steamed as a guest editor in February 2010...
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
Ideas - what to read, what to watch, what to do in the Steampunk community, and maybe a few ideas for future works.
How did you hear about us?

A short while ago Double Dragon Ebooks accepted my novella Steampunk Imperialism for publication, albeit with a name change to Rise of the Steampunk Empire. The reason I’m blogging about this, apart from the obvious, is because of what caused the story to be written in the first place. That cause was Charles Stross.
