Author and Steampunk September Founder Penelope Bartotto is a veteran book reviewer and avid reader. She’s been reviewing books since the late 1990s, and happened to contact me a while ago to invite me to join her Steampunk September event. Now in it’s 3rd year, Steampunk September highlights genre authors and their works, as well as providing authors with a wonderful outlet to meet new people, expand their readership, and hear about tips and tricks from other authors. From her website…
 
Many think they know what the genre is about, and many have no idea. Our goal is to bring the genre to the attention of the Universe and beyond. Featuring authors, illustrators, artisans, and more; we aim to bring you into the world of steampunk, literally.
 

So enjoy the interview, and I’ll be proud to join her in the events during Steampunk September, which will feature both Brass Legionnaire and Copper Centurion!

#Steamlit buildup: Martin Kee Interview


Daniel Ottalini:

I love this! Great to always hear about other author’s writing, especially during #steamlit April!

Originally posted on James Calbraith:

steamlit As part of the buildup for the #Steampunk Lit Extravaganza , we’re doing interview with each other. So here’s mine with the author Martin Kee .
1. Tell us a bit about yourself and the book you’re promoting.
I’m a former game developer and content writer. I’ve written all my life, but only decided to write novels around five years ago. Currently I am living in Idaho with my wife, a couple of cats and a rabbit. I am trying to make a career out of not wearing pants.
A LATENT DARK is about that hidden part of ourselves we know is there, but choose to not talk about. It’s about a girl who can see this part of people plain as day, and the theocracy who wants to capture her because of it. She’s pursued by a man named Lyle Summers, who appears as sort of a cross between…

Interview with Steampunk Author James Calbraith

Banner-copy21-1024x426As part of our #Steamlit Steampunk promotion, I was fortunate enough to both interview and be interviewed by another steampunk author. You can view my interview here.

Today I had the wonderful opportunity to interview James Calbraith, author of the Year of the Dragon Series, a Japanese Steampunk tale. I should mention, the covers are gorgeous and he’s offering a great deal on his first four books – The Year of the Dragon Series, Books 1-4: The Crimson Robe – Which I think everyone should check out. Before I blabber on unnecessarily, here’s the interview ;-) Continue reading

Review: Exiles of Arcadia


Primus Seneca has lived most of his life in exile. Ten years ago his father led an army against the ruthless dictator Tiberius–and was crushed. Now the general plans his revenge from the snowy heart of the Boreal forest, and sixteen-year-old Primus is eager to join his father’s legion. But once he is sworn in, Primus begins to unravel family secrets that will shake his faith in the cause, his father, and the very nature of the gods.”

Exiles of Arcadia Disclaimer: I received a review copy free from the author. Generally, I say no to review requests, only because I fear I won’t have the time to do them properly. This story, being a novella, I considered short enough to take a chance on. I’m glad I did.
