Profile Information

Introduce yourself!
I’m S.C. Barrus, but you can call me Cody. A writer and entrepreneur, I wear many hats, both figuratively and literally.

On the writing end, I am currently writing a steampunk adventure story "The Island and the Sea". You can read more about it on my website AwayandAway.com
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
I am looking for a few things, and I am sure I will find at least part of it here. First I like the steampunk community, particularly in regards to the artists. I am hoping to network with artists of all kinds, but particularly high caliber writers.

I am also hoping to find a place where I can gain an audience for my novel in progress called "The Island and the Sea" to help insure it's success.
