(from the HGTV feature)
The Steampunk Bible: An Illustrated Guide to the World of Imaginary Airships, Corsets and Goggles, Mad Scientists, and Strange Literature is doing well, now that it’s out in the world. There was a nice piece on the HGTV blog recently, a shout-out in the Wall Street Journal, and a nice article in the Austin Chronicle, with a lot more coming. SJ Chambers, my coauthor, hosted the Austin release party and attended Steampunk City, more about both on the Steampunk Bible website.
This is not to mention the craziness of some of it. For example, Ann and I were called by a TV reality show producer who wanted to know if we dress like Steampunks 24-7, did “freaky” or “weird” things, and, basically, did we have dysfunctional relatives. No, no, and no. There’s also been some movie interest peripheral to steampunk, and tomorrow I’m flying out to Los Angeles for something else entirely while SJ Chambers prepares for the Steampunk World’s Fair.
If you’re my facebook friend you can follow my adventures in LA tomorrow and might even get info on an impromptu get-together tomorrow evening. As for Chambers, the next month of her full-on book tour can be found below. Note that Ann and I will be at the NYC event and that there will be a pub adventure following the event.
