Cover Reveal for Second Gear: Steam Whistle Alley Book Two

Hello friends and neighbors. SWA is out with the editors and we are hoping for a May 10th release… just in time to get Mom a paperback copy for Mother’s Day. It’s been a fun process and I thank you all for the support. SWA book one is still up on RR, so this is the last chance to read the rough if you haven’t already. Augmented Reality Steampunk GameLit set in Seattle… what more could you ask for? Visit the home page to join the mailing list.

Check out this amazing map I commissioned! It looks almost exactly like what I had in my head. Editing continues, betas are getting it soon, and on track for a late April release!


The first draft of Steam Whistle Alley is complete!

Hello! Two months and 112,077 words later, and the first draft is complete! I’ll be finishing up the self editing soon, and I am looking for beta readers to tell me what works and what doesn’t, and get it ready for release. If you are interested, send me a message! This is also your last chance to read the original, unedited version up on Royal Road, but I’m not sure if that’s a good thing. Read it here.

It’s been an incredibly fun time. My wife has been falling asleep to the sound of me typing nearly every night since mid-January.Thank you Francine, you’re amazing. I’m also looking into getting it up for sale in a local string of bookstores here, so wish me luck.

Thanks again for coming with me on this journey, and I hope to see you around for Steam Whistle Alley: Second Gear.
