Facebook Live Chat With Jeff Mach About the Upcoming Steampunk World’s Fair and More!

Guess what? I’ll be Facebook Live-ing with the organizer of a huge steampunk convention: Jeff Mach, of Steampunk World’s Fair fame! He’s also a musician as well as an author, and probably many other things. I can’t wait!

Join us Tuesday January 16th at 11 a.m. Eastern Time.


Storypunks Social Guest Announcements Jeff Mach

I’ll be talking to Jeff about lots of steampunk goodness, especially since he blogs a ton on the subject at JeffMachEvents.com. I’m sure we’ll also talk about his forthcoming work The Steampunk Cookbook. How fun is that?!

This should be a really interesting discussion, plus you can be part of it through the link above!

Also, this live event is part of a new audio and video show I’ve launched, so if you haven’t already, check out The Storypunks Podcast and subscribe!

By way of quick update, I am wrapping up my re-work of the first book in my Norse mythology meets steampunk series titled Piccadilly Valkyrie. It’s looking like this will be ready for beta reading in February or March 2018, so please sign up if this story sounds interesting to you (it’s pretty weird and wonderful, for the right reader!).


And on that note, Jeff and I will be cosplaying for this Facebook Live Event!

I’m going as my main character–which is a bit scandalous because it makes plain that I’m pushing the edge of the steampunk envelope by setting this series in the Regency Era (there was steam technology then as well!).

So yes, there will be much to discuss!

Join us!!

Comic Con 2017 Panels: Steampunk Goodness and the End of the World, Ragnarok-Norse-Apocalypse Style

Yay! Comic Con time again. I’m very excited about my panels this time around, so here are the details.

First of all, let me just say that this is probably my favorite Salt Lake Comic Con banner yet–Gates McFadden, Dick Van Dyke, John Cusack–I mean, come on! This will be an awesome convention.


My Panel Schedule

I’m on two very different panels, but interestingly, they intersect in my series Peacock Lavine and the Aetherian Fates of Nótt: a steampunk adventure based on lesser-known Norse mythology–in Regency-era London, of course!

I’ve published a prequel (Unwyrded) and book one (Piccadilly Valkyrie) in this series, but I’ve temporarily unpublished them so I can adapt them to the larger scope this story line has evolved into. I’m also leveling up on editing, proofing, and beta readers–are you interested in being part of that? Please don’t hesitate to email me! I’ll post an update when this series is available again.

So, without further ado, here are my panels! I’m so excited to be on these alongside authors I admire.

Steam, Gears, and Bygone Years



Ah, a back-to-back schedule . . . what a beautiful thing. I don’t know how on earth that happened, but I’ll just be quiet and not ask any questions!

If you’ve never been to Comic Con, there’s always a lot to take in, but especially for writers, artists, and creators. A lot of people don’t know about the panels that take place during the whole thing. It’s a wonderful way to jump into writing and start understanding different aspects of the business, from craft to marketing and beyond. If you’ve ever thought about being a fiction writer, you should come to this. It’s three days of affordable, solid programming from a variety of authors. It’s all geared to help you out.

Come say hello!

My SL Comic Con 2016 Schedule: Stephen King’s “On Writing” and “A Celebration of Steampunk”


SL Comic Con 2016 is right around the corner, and I’m excited to be presenting on some really incredible panels. Here’s what I’m promoting and where I’ll be.

First of all, I’ve had my Peacock Lavine covers redesigned, and I love how they’ve turned out:

SL Comic Con Panel Schedule

For this first one, I’m so excited to join a group of fun, dynamic authors as we discuss one of the best books out there on writing craft. I’m definitely only into “Horror Lite”, but I love King’s advice.

On to panel number two: a tour through steampunk fantasticness!! My Peacock Lavine series is Norse steampunk featuring a disenfranchised Valkyrie making her way in Regency Era London. Mayhem ensues. So yes, steampunk gets weird and wonderful, fast. These panels are always so much fun. And oooh, look! I’m moderating! So come check out the techno-whimsy!!

Check out this main Panel Programming Page for more details, and have a wonderful week!
