I’ll be at the HRM Steampunk Symposium on Saturday 11 Jan

I’ll be attending the 3rd annual HRM Steampunk Symposium on the Queen Mary in Long Beach which is under way this weekend.  I’ll be aboard on Saturday, Jan 11th, to participate in the Steampunk 101 Panel (11 a.m., Victoria Room) and do a Book Signing & Reading session starting at 12 noon in the Queen’s Salon.  Hope to see you there!

Welcome 2014!

Hi everyone,

I took a bit of a break from the blog over the holidays but, unfortunately for you, I’m back.  I hope you all had a great holiday season. My first book cover, Romulus Buckle & the City of the Founders (by Eamon O’Donoghue) did win the Qwillery Debut Author Book Cover of 2013.  A HUGE thank you to everyone who voted.  Eamon did a fantastic job.

I have just completed the first book in a new Young Adult series; it is being polished up for submission to publishers later this month.  Fingers crossed on that one.  The third book in the Romulus Buckle series is under way but there is no deal with my current publisher on that yet – more on all of this later.

Happy 2014!
