Southern Reach trilogy author Jeff VanderMeer has kindly provided a wonderful blurb for the series and I’m jazzed about it: “Preston’s Steampunk series is not just entertaining and fun but full of great characters who deepen and change over the course of the books. Expect amazing Steampunk scenes, yes, but also people you care about and a lovely mix of the comic and serious. Just pure storytelling at its best.”—Jeff VanderMeer, author of the Southern Reach novels
Thanks to everyone for being so patient and encouraging on this one. I hope you enjoy the book(s).
P.S. I also have a Romulus Buckle universe short story out, entitled “An Officer and a Gentleman,” which offers a quick peek into an earlier event in Buckle’s life.
I’m jazzed to be able to guest post on the blog of awesome author and pal Australian Mark T. Barnes where I talk about why I chose the steampunk genre for my novel series, what the heck steampunk actually is and how the series got published. And other stuff too.

Hey, so, I don’t often post reviews of my books but this pair of wonderful reviews of Romulus Buckle & the Pneumatic Zeppelin by a father and his 11 y/o daughter (who really connected to the female characters) at Geekin’ Podcast & Blog was too nice not to ego-harp about just a bit.
Well. I have been neglecting the blog for the past couple of months, more out of needing writing time than anything else, but the fall will be busy here. I wanted to remind any visitors that this is the last day (through August 20th) to get both of my Romulus Buckle books, City of the Founders and Engines of War, for $1.99 on the Amazon Select Sci-Fi & Fantasy Monthly Kindle Books Deal.
