Full Steam Ahead: Post Gaslight Gathering

Another short post this time out.

Just wanted to say thanks to everybody who stopped by my panel and reading on Saturday. I had a great time at Gaslight Gathering, hanging out with master crafter Nick Baumann (AKA Crackitus Potts of the incredible League of S.T.E.A.M. –http://leagueofsteam.com/ ) and talking history and concepts with Leanna Renee Reiber (http://www.leannareneehieber.com/)  and Professor Dru Pagliasotti (http://www.drupagliassotti.com/).  It was a great venue. Glass double doors, crystal chandelier – felt like Oscar Wilde during my reading.  Actually I was reminded a little of pulp writer Holly Martin’s speech to the Viennese literary society in The Third Man. Haha.

A very special thanks too to those of you who took a chance on Merkabah Rider. Hope you enjoy your acquisition and will stick with the Rider through to the end. And as a sidenote, if you do enjoy what you read (and this goes for any book you picked up this weekend, not just mine), and are so inclined, share your opinion! Loan the book out, or post your thoughts on Amazon or any relevant message boards you might frequent. One of the biggest and most important differences between a major publisher and a small press is exposure, and the biggest thanks a reader can give an author (beyond the initial purchase) is to spread the word.

Next weekend I’m off to Yuma to research the next Rider novel, Have Glyphs Will Travel. Check back here. Maybe I’ll post some pics.

-Hasta pronto,

  1. It was great participating on a panel with you at Gaslight, and I’ve been recommending your series to others I think will enjoy it. …You absolutely need to cosplay your protagonist, btw; it would be the best costume ever at the next steampunk or Wild West con!

  2. Thanks Dru! It was great meeting you as well. I’ve got to get a pal of mine to model the thing for me, you’re right.
