Alas, No Steampunk.

I’m sorry to announce that the steampunk Western novel for Spice has been cancelled.

I’m not sure if I will continue to work on that project for another possible publisher, or work on something else entirely, since I have a number of different projects clamoring for my attention.

I’ll post when I’ve decided.

    Bad news for us readers. :( I really hope you'll still write the steampunk. After reading your short story, The Magnificent Threesome, I was dying for some of your steampunk.

    Meanwhile, I look forward to hearing what you've got in store for us next!
