Good morning all, I wanted to thank everyone that came by at Atlanta Steampunk Exposition (ASE) and picked up a book. This was the show’s first year, and it was a great show. We saw a lot of great, top-tier cosplay, and I had the opportunity to meet some great independent authors like myself.
Here are just two examples of the cosplay that was on display.
If you are a fan of steampunk fiction, this was the con for you. ASE had a lot of great authors, and I was able to pick up some books. You can click on any of the covers below to pick up the books that I added to my library this weekend.
ASE 2017 was a success in my opinion. A lot of people attended and everyone appeared to have a great time. We have received confirmation that they will be doing a second show in 2018. If possible, I hope to be a part of it. Thank you very much to everyone that came out, if you weren’t able to make it, I hope to see you at another show sometime soon.
Good to see you again faithful readers, I wanted to follow up and let everyone know that Winston & Baum and the Trials of the Baba Yaga is now available in print.
“What’s this one about?” I can hear you asking, and I’m glad you asked.
Book 4 of the Winston & Baum Steampunk Adventures finds our heroes in a very different situation than before, just read the synopsis to see what I mean.
Synopsis: As the war between Britain and Prussia continues to rage on, Baba Yaga, the legendary witch of Prussia, takes a firm stand against the foreign army with all of her supernatural allies. Dan and Lee are pulled apart as Lee is drafted into a special unit of hunters being sent to deal with the monstrous menace. With his ship lost behind enemy lines and most of his unit captured, Lee and the Scottish hunter, Brogan, must attempt to make their way back towards friendly territory, but it won’t be an easy task as the Baba Yaga’s forces hound their every step. When word that Lee is missing reaches home, Dan and Brackish set out on a dangerous mission to save their friend. Following Lee’s path, the two hunters soon learn that the dangers their friend faces are even greater than they imagined. As they race through the Prussian countryside, Dan and Brackish try to reach Lee before the Baba Yaga can get him in her clutches. As they fight to survive, can the exterminators of the strange and weird endure the trials of the Baba Yaga?

Thanks for dropping by and keep checking back to see where I’ll be so that you can pick up an autographed copy. I can tell you that your first opportunity to get a copy from me will be at C1 Comicon in Ringold, Georgia on July 8 & 9. So if you can, drop by.
It’s a great day!
Winston & Baum and the Trials of the Baba Yaga is now live and available for your Kindle, with paperback versions expected to be available by the end of next week. You can click on the cover below to pick up your digital copy.
You can actually come out and see me this weekend at Mobicon in Mobile, Alabama. While I won’t have copies of book 4, I will have copies of the first three books in the Winston & Baum steampunk adventure series, as well as copies of Friedkin’s Curse. My wife and cover artist will also be selling copies of her prints and original 3d sculptures. You can view more of her work here. If you are looking for something to do this Memorial Day weekend, swing by and say hey and pick up a book or some art.
I am also currently working on the next two Winston & Baum related projects. The first is a collection of short stories featuring other exterminators of the strange and weird that have been introduced in the main Winston & Baum series, , as well as an early adventure of Dan and Lee’s. I decided to do this after I had so much fun writing Brackish’s short story for Winston & Baum and the Disk of Night. The other project is the fifth Winston & Baum novel, which will be unlike any of the other stories and not be based on regional folklore or mythology. It’s definitely going to be interesting.
That’s all from me for right now, but keep checking back for more information on where I’ll be and what I’m working on.

Steampunk Expo was this past weekend, and we had a great time. A big thank you to everyone that came by and picked up a book, some art, or just stopped to talk for a little bit.
Even though it was a small show, it was incredibly well run and a lot of fun. A lot of great artists and vendors were there. Below are just a few of the highlights .
We got to hang out with the tea maven of Dryad Tea. If you are a tea lover you should check out her stuff at http://dryadtea.com/. She has a massive variety of teas. My wife is a big fan of her chai teas.
For the heavier drinkers out there make your own special brews of absinthe with the flavors at http://www.leloupgaroualchemy.com/. They have a wide variety and import their wormwood for a true, authentic absinthe.
We got to meet the members of the Dark Princess Theatre. They had some really good tales of supernatural events in the Chattanooga area, and I can’t wait to get started listening to their podcast. You can find them at http://www.darkprincesstheatre.com/.
One of our neighbors was artist Eddie Price (www.eddieprice.net). Go check out his site and pick up some really cool comic art, or one of his handmade 3-d pieces, which are incredible to see in person.
Steampunk author Geoffrey Mandragora was there with his Thunderbolt Chronicles series. Check out his books on his Amazon page here.
We also got to see some of our friends that we haven’t seen for a little while.
If Steampunk Expo will have us, Caralyn and I will be back next year for another fun, steam-driven convention at the Chattanooga Choo Choo.
My apologies to everyone for taking so long to post here, but life has been busy to say the least. Connooga was a blast. It was a lot of fun, and I got to be part of some exceptional panels. A big thanks to Chad Sides, who runs the horror track for having me back, and creating a killer lineup of panels. I always enjoy going to shows and getting to meet people.
It’s because of that reason that I’ll be returning to Chattanooga next month for Steampunk Expo from April 15-17. I won’t be doing any panels at this show, but I will be there with my cover artist (www.mysticreflections.com). So for you fans of steampunk, this event should be right up your alley. Stop by and see what it’s all about.
Also in April, I will be back at the Hiram Bookstore for a signing. It will be Saturday, April 9th from 5-8. The flyer is below, so print them out and share with your friends, or post them on your favorite social media site. Either way, hope to see you sometime in April.
Thanks for stopping by and keep coming by to find out what I’ll be up to next.
Hey everyone, I hope your first month of 2016 has gone well. I’ve been busy and just wanted to give everyone a heads-up about what’s been happening.
The short story that I promised will be released between Winston & Baum books 3 & 4 is finished (first draft only). It is part of a series that started with Brackish’s story in the back of Winston & Baum and the Disk of Night. I am calling them the Tales of the Hunters. Each of them will focus on hunters from the Winston & Baum world. They are characters that you’ve met, but I wanted to explore other hunters and adventures set in this world. So, the first of these is drafted. I’ve finished the rough draft of the fourth Winston & Baum steampunk adventure (still no title yet). I’m mostly done with the rough drafts of the other two stories in the hunters series, which will follow book 4.
Last year was a steam-driven adventure for sure. I was able to go to more conventions and meet more people. I’ll be going back to Connooga in February. I’ll post my panel schedule when the show is closer, but if you can, please come out and see my talented wife & cover artist and myself. It’s always nice to meet you wonderful people.
Once I’m done with the other two hunter shorts, I’m going to write something else. I don’t know what yet, but just something to cleanse my palette before I head back to the world of Winston & Baum for the fifth novel.
Thanks for reading and keep stopping by to see what I’ll be up to next.
