A few links for your reading pleasure

Found a couple of pieces online that might be of interest to readers here, both of which make kind reference to The Daedalus Incident.

First, English teacher and writer Scott Reintgen talks about how he teaches his students to write antagonists. I won’t spoil it here, but it’s a pretty good read, so if you’re afflicted with the desire to write, you should check it out. Turns out The Daedalus Incident fits into Scott’s model neatly. I’d love to say I totally planned it that way.

Secondly, author Richard Ellis Preston Jr. of The Chronicles of the Pneumatic Zeppelin series was featured on the Kindle Daily Post talking about steampunk and its splinter genres. He gave a very nice shout out to Daedalus as an example of “alchemypunk.” The article is also a pretty nice primer on steampunk for those new to the genre.

And…that’s about it for now. I’ve lined up some great stuff in the weeks ahead to mark the release of The Enceladus Crisis on May 6, and keep an eye out for a variety of giveaways coming very soon. Yes, free books. I’m also heading on vacation in less than two weeks, and looking forward to getting a bunch more writing done on The Venusian Gambit. 

As for where on vacation…well, keep reading the blog and peek over at Twitter and you’ll find out when I’m there!

    Very much looking forward to the second book.
    I thought the first one was excellent!

    I just finished Daedalus and immediately pre-ordered Enceladus. What a wonderful book! I especially liked that it was easy to keep the two types of chapters straight. I read it in one long sitting. Also, I am a Grammar and Punctuation Bitch and I didn’t have to stop on every other page and complain about the lack of proofreading, as I do with many books. Made the book even more pleasurable to read. The characters were really well drawn and believable. Thank you.
