Steampunk Hands Around the World, 2019: This is Me.

I had planned to do two or three posts for this year’s Steampunk Hands Around the World. One was a photo montage of various steampunk outfits and events I’ve attended. The other was about my writing and steampunk books. But that isn’t my whole story. I have a confession to make. I’m not the person…

Adelaide Supanova Round Up

It’s done.  And I’m still exhausted and regathering spoons for this month’s challenge: NaNoWriMo.  Wish me luck. You can follow my progress on my NaNo page.

Here’s some more behind the scenes for the making of the Aunt Enid booktrailer… “There was a knock on the door. Enid’s silver walking stick glinted in the umbrella stand.

The Year That Was

It’s inevitable. With the end of each year, comes the long lists of achievements, the dissertations of regret,  the (sometimes even longer) and lists of resolutions for the upcoming year. I promise I’ll stop this. I promise to do that. I promise… I promise I won’t go on forever. Regrets? I have a few – mostly…

Firing the Imagination: Steampunk Hands Around the World #3

Certain groups seem to have a higher percentage of creative types. And steampunk is no exception. It’s a creative culture. It nurtures the imagination – through a good book, a stunning costume or breathtaking images. But this is no cookie-cutter culture. Steampunk fosters individuality.
