I officially launched The Department of Curiosities during the Adelaide Steampunk Festival. The video has now been uploaded to my youtube channel and will go public in about a week or so.
The full back cover blurb:
A steampunk tale of adventure, a heroine, mad scientists, traitors and secrets. All for the good of the Empire.
Miss Matilda Meriwether has a secret.
Actually, she has several.
One of them has shaped her adult life. Another now controls it. Her Majesty Queen Victoria has control of the Empire. She is the Empire, and creator of its secrets.
Sir Avery works for The Department of Curiosities – the keepers of secrets – especially if they are useful to the Empire.
When Tillie finds herself in the employment of The Department of Curiosities, she realises this is the perfect opportunity to uncover the truth she has been searching for. But the Queen has other plans for her.

If you’re in Australia, you can buy a copy of ‘The Department of Curiosities’ at Adelaide Supanova and Brisbane Supanova in November. I’ll be in the Artist Alley.
