Official revival of my long neglected blog… because through happenstance, luck, karma, and long odds, I have stumbled into a small independent publisher who would like to publish my steampunk stories!!!
Where we stand right now:
- We have settled on the “Tales from the Brymlight Observer” to be the umbrella name for the stories that are set in the steampunk world that you will see referenced through earlier blog posts as the setting for the West Wind and Due West. The Brymlight Observer is an underground subversive newspaper that is proudly “Shining the Light on the Truth.”
- Five short stories that are publish ready (they were originally submitted to various horror and other short story anthologies) are being edited by Paul. My editor. Paul. Yes, my *editor* (sorry, still trying to get used to this!) One of the five, Forgotten Memories, was previously published in a ghost hunting anthology the subject of other posts here. A second was accepted, but the publisher ultimately did not release the anthology. All of the short stories will be receiving new titles and cover art.
- A kickstarter is in the works that will be publishing the five short stories in eBook format, a printed anthology, and some other goodies. This is to help build awareness around publishing of the West Wind, which will also be receiving a new name and cover art. A webpage has been setup that will be the home of the Brymlight Observer that includes an email sign-up if you want to keep up to date on the kickstarter and other goings ons: www.brymlight.com
