Seattle Times Interview

January 25, 2010 - 6:25 am No Comments

I’d like to thank Mary Ann Gwinn at the Seattle Times, for she has been very, very kind. She has also dubbed me the “high priestess of steampunk,” which is a little hilarious. Ah, the punny-riffic joys of having a common noun for a name :)

If you’re visiting this page due to her article, then welcome! Have fun poking around. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

PNBA Awards

January 10, 2010 - 8:04 pm No Comments

Back in November I mentioned that Boneshaker had been shortlisted for a PNBA award — an award given out by the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association, a non-profit association of independent bookstores Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska. And now it’s finally official: Boneshaker won! Click that link to read about the other four winners, and to see a very old picture of me with long red hair. (I have no idea where they got it or why they used it, but heck. That’s okay.)

Thanks so much to the PNBA committee and to all the readers who’ve taken a chance on Boneshaker so far!

Tanglefoot picked up by VanderMeers

January 7, 2010 - 7:26 pm No Comments

The very first Clockwork Century story ever released — the novelette “Tanglefoot” — has been acquired by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer for their STEAMPUNK RELOADED anthology! Their original STEAMPUNK anthology was an absolute masterpiece, and I’m absolutely honored and tickled beyond belief to be included in the next installment.

Stay tuned; when I have details about release dates and fellow authors (and whatnot), I’ll make a point to post such things here.
