Just wondering, cause there are a lot of tweets and whatnots going around. Evidently a few RWAers chatted amongst themselves about Steampunk being the next big thing, and I have heard that Meljean Brook has a contracted series coming soon.
So raise your hand, if you dare! Are you writing a steampunk romance? What’s it about? Is it hard steampunk, as I’ll call the sort that is immersed in the details of alternative technologies? Or Softsteam, as I’ll dub the book I just wrote (and am reworking for my very, very patient editor)–meaning that it’s not heavy on technology but does have a Victorian alternate universe?
I’d love to start a group of like-minded struggling pulling our freaking hair out this is so freaking hard but exciting to write authors. What do you think? You in? You giving up? Or do you lay awake deciding what your cover will look like?
