Omnivoracious Week: Mark T. Mustian, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Unsinkable Pirate Post

(Krista Brennan made me a Steampunk pirate for the author image in the back of the forthcoming Steampunk Bible; she also did one for my coauthor, S.J. Chambers. This is just a detail from the full portrait.)

It’s been a busy week on Omnivoracious for me, with a short interview on Mary Robinette Kowal’s novel (asking the essential question: “If your novel were an animal…?”), a photo shoot for Brandon Sanderson’s latest, and, today, my post on Talk Like a Pirate Day–which looks at a new novel from Dzanc Books, among others.

Also this week, Omnivoracious ran my interview and guest features with Mark T. Mustian about his novel The Gendarme:


Deep and eclectic reading

The role of research and experience in writing historical novels

The stigma of being a part-time writer?

Oh yeah, and someone’s done a video game inspired by City of Saints & Madmen (free to downloadable or it’d be a little weird), although it’s just really a little ship going through a cavern of fungi. Another video here and download instructions here.

    Awesome blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out
    there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Kudos!
