I like me some pirates in space. That always gets my business.

Kristina, I was tickled by the chance to get my heroine, whose hot-air balloon (I've written about her before) doesn't quite qualify for steampunkhood, involved with classy dirigibles.
Ohhh... where else have you written about her?

Seriously, brilliant story. I have a bad habit of reading the first story, then the last story in a collection to see how an editor has bookended the anthology-- so your story actually got read twice.
I read yours twice in Playing With Fire. I flipped to it first and then reread it when I came to it

Ah, yes. The House of Sable Locks picks up where The Succubus left off. Mostly because that Silver Lady got into my brain and refused to get out! There was a lot more to her story, and that manuscript is currently with my beta readers.

It was ... More
Sounds fascinating and I believe that is how great books happen, a character won't let you go.

Here's a question for any of the authors from this anthology:

Is steampunk a genre you love and often write for, or was it a challenge you decided to take on?

Is there a max word count you'd like in submissions for Girl Fever?

1200 words, and I can use 'em substantially shorter, too. If you have one that seems a bit too long, I have a knack for helping writers intensify their prose by compressing it.

If anybody needs a bit of an extension for my anthology, feel free to ask me.

And... that was quick. By the time I got upstairs, he'd fallen asleep. So I'll find out what he was calling me in the morning, I guess.

Did I miss anything good?

Such a cool story, by Essemoh Teepee, an Englishman! One hot story, and includes actual people of the day!

I'm a steampunk junkie from way back. My ink is a skeleton dial clock. I've always been drawn to orrereys and clockworks.
