Well, it is that time of the year again for me to head down to the old Grain Belt Brewery Warehouse for Minnesota’s premier Steampunk celebration 13 Gears. On February 9th and 10th, I’ll be selling and signing my books at 13 Gears. The event takes place on both days of the weekend, a first from any of the previous celebrations. It is expanding because it is awesome. On Saturday the operation times are 11am to 7pm, while on Saturday they’re from 10am to 4pm.

This is an awesome event. There is live music, tea dueling, amazing cosplay, and a ton of awesome vendors. I’ll be hanging out with a few other fantastic Steampunk authors this year, Michael Merriam and Catherine Lundoff. Both are accomplished writers of the genre and will bring more diversity to the written word offered at 13 Gears.

At this event I’ll be selling my newly released and fourth book in my apocalyptic series The Greenland Diaries. This is the first sort of convention for the New Year where I’ll have The Greenland Diaries: Days 201 – 260 on sale for physical copies. Supplies are limited, so find my table quickly if you want one. I’ll be selling my Steampunk short story collection Moya as well. I’ll also be offering a special Steampunk combo at a reduced price. Visit me to get the details. It is a really good deal.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at the event. This is one of my favorites of the year. I always enjoy my time there. Hope to see you!

This Saturday on February 10th from 11:30am – 6:00pm I will be selling my books at 13 Gears, an eclectic steampunk event located here in the Twin Cities. I have been a participate in this event for a long time now, in fact this will be my forth time vending at 13 Gears. I’m a huge fan of the steampunk style, genre, and overall vibe. In fact, the spellcheck on my computer knows the word extensively. It doesn’t even question it. 13 Gears is the premier steampunk event, convention, and happening in Minnesota for the entire year. There will be costume contests, tea eating competitions, and live music.

I have always loved the Steampunk genre. The first book I published, Beware the Ills, had Steampunk elements. Giant airships, gear-laden mechanical crossbows, and a steam-powered mutant were a few characteristics I swiped from this elaborate universe. The first short story I ever had published called Lobo, which is now included my Seven Monsters anthology was steampunk. My favorite short story I have ever wrote called Demonland in I Sing Constellations was also steampunk. When I’m done with the Greenland Diaries in the next five years I plan on writing a fantasy/steampunk epic for traditional publication (or at least hoping to).

So, please come on out to this awesome event. I’ll be selling my books, signing them, and dressed like a woodsmen Mad Hater. The event is located in the old grain belt brewery in northeast Minneapolis. It serves as a perfect backdrop for all the awesome cosplay that is going to arrive. Hope to see you there and have a good weekend!
