Denizens of Steam.

Here’s an extra treat for Halloween – an extra post and a eBook mini anthology of steampunk flash fiction , featuring my latest flash fiction, Right on Time – for free. It all started with a tea party to celebrate the first anniversary of Scribblers’ Den, a group of steampunk writers on the forum, Steampunk Empire. I love…

The State of Affairs.

Why is it that the last few months of the year seem to be the busiest? And that’s not contemplating Christmas shopping. Not only have I been soul-searching and kicking myself up the butt this week, but I have also found a new burst of enthusiasm. The daily task of producing a new piece of…

Yesterday our local costume/cosplay group, Cosplay for a Cause Adelaide, held a Steampunk Pirate Ball (we couldn’t make up our mind, so we went with both!) to raise money for Variety Club SA.

My heart falls into the pit of my stomach. Dread. Electric pins and needles radiate through my chest.  My hearts pounds, racing, trying to catch up with my thoughts which have already consumed me.
