Hey! A couple of pieces of news!
First of all, I recently wrote a post for Joseph Campbell Foundation (my “day gig”) entitled “Where Do Stories Come From.” It’s talking about the source of narrative, and also mythologist Joseph Campbell’s own fiction writing. Check it out!
Also, the final volume of my friend Heather Albano’s steampunk time travel trilogy Keeping Time is coming out on November 22! Timebound is a wild, roller coaster-ride of a conclusion to what was already a fun series — a mashup of HG Wells, Jane Austen, and Mary Shelley, if you can believe it.
In preparation for the release of the conclusion of the trilogy, we’re lowering the price for the ebook of Timepiece, the first book in the series, to just $0.99! Just November 22, though, so don’t wait!
Keeping Time: Steampunk Time-Travel
You only THINK you know
what happened at Waterloo.
The real story involved more monsters.
And a lot more time travel.
“Waterloo and time travel are made for each other and Heather Albano has done a wonderful job of giving us a delightful cast of characters, tasked with stitching together the proper nineteenth century while fending off several monstrous alternatives. Propulsive adventure with historical insight.” – Kim Stanley Robinson, Red Mars and 2312
Keeping Time: A Steampunk Time Travel Adventure Trilogy by Heather Albano
It’s 1815, and Wellington’s badly-outnumbered army stares across the field of Waterloo at Napoleon’s forces. Desperate to hold until reinforcements arrive, Wellington calls upon a race of monsters created by a mad Genevese scientist 25 years before.
It’s 1815, and a discontented young lady sitting in a rose garden receives a mysterious gift: a pocket watch that, when opened, displays scenes from all eras of history. Past…and future.
It’s 1885, and a small band of resistance fighters are resorting to increasingly extreme methods in their efforts to overthrow a steampunk Empire whose clockwork gears are slick with its subjects’ blood.
Are these events connected?
Oh, come now. That would be telling.
