Greetings and many huzzahs, my hearties!
It's been a while since I've been around here, I know. So, understandably, I have much to share with you.
First, let's talk about Bree Tanner.
Now, I know there is some very slight polarization on the subject of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga. Very slight. But I'm personally totally in favor of it. I read (and purchased) the entire four book series. And then a dear friend of mine gave me a copy of The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. I'll give you an anecdote and let you come to your own conclusions about the book:
I laid down last night at around 11:30, fully intent on reading some of Bree Tanner and getting my head to that pillow by midnight, if not sooner. So I start reading.
1:16 AM rolls around and I finally close the book, having found no decent reason to actually stop reading it.
I think that, alone, says volumes on the quality of the book.
And now: the Asiatic steampunk.
I wrote a story, about a year ago) dealing with steampunk in a fictional, magical, semi-Asiatic world.
It's now officially released as part of Gears and Levers II through Sky Warrior Books.
Take a look at it, if you get the chance.
That's all for now. Toodles.
