On Kindle Now: Animatae’s Shadow

Merry Christmas to one and all!  I hope wherever you are you are warm and cozy.  I’m excited to announce that my new Amazon writers page is up and running and Animatae’s Shadow is available free through Amazon Prime.

Animatae’s Shadow (Rogues of the Empyrean)

It is undoubtedly an exciting time for me and Trantius Rune Press.  I’m especially looking forward to next month and February.  The second full length novel in the Rogues of the Empyrean series should be available through Kindle at that time.

Merry Christmas to you all! And all the best wishes!

Steampunk: Dicken’s On The Strand

This weekend marks the 38th year that Galveston, TX has hosted Dicken’s On The Strand.  For

those who have not heard of it let me sum it up:

Victorian recreation of Galveston during it’s hey-day.  During the late Victorian era Galveston was the largest city in Texas and had very close ties to London.

This weekend hosts vendors, performers and…that’s right…Steampunk on the Strand.

There are many, many, many events for the family.  Dickens on The Strand is a lot of fun, even if the weather is dreary (as it currently is in Texas), and thankfully the ‘board-walks’ are covered.

A few of the events Dickens has to offer are:

Queens Parade

Dickens Costume Contest

Pinwicks Lantern Parade

Albert’s Whimsical Whisker Revue

Victorian Bed Races

Per usual the Airship Isabella will be there.  Last year their Airship and vendor booth took up nearly an entire lot (this event is very large).

Many, many, many Airships will be participating this year, more even than last.  I had the pleasure of going last year.  I remember the costumes as particularly stunning.  Truly I have not been to another Victorian event with such elaborate detail to Victorian period costuming.

If you are already taking part in the festivities leave a comment!!!

If you are also unable to make it here is a link to a live web-cam of the festivities!
