Podcast Interview: Moving Sideways

A year ago, just before I released the print edition of The Stowaway Debutante, a friend put me in touch with photographer John Meadows for my first steampunk photo shoot. Now, I’m pleased to share an interview I did for his podcast On the Log discussing steampunk, writing, historical research, airship technology and a few behind-the-scenes looks into the Tales of the Captain Duke.

And as a bonus, here are a few of the photos from our October 2014 steampunk photo shoot!

Toronto-area readers rejoice! Page & Panel is one of my favourite new bookstores, located in the Toronto Reference Library just north of Yonge & Bloor. You can browse the merch, pick up a new comic AND check out their extensive selection of local authors.

I am a huge supporter of indie bookstores. There’s nothing quite like wandering into a space that’s been curated to help you discover new favourites and classics alike. And it’s so special to have the support of bookstores like Page & Panel and The Ginger Press (Owen Sound) as an indie author too.

There’s really nothing quite like seeing people get excited over a project you’ve held dear to your heart for so long. I’m so pleased to be able to share these books with you!

Steampunk Fashion at Fan Expo Canada

I had an incredible time at Fan Expo Canada this weekend! I promise a longer post (or many) on the subject soon, but first I wanted to share the guest post I wrote for She Does the City on steampunk fashion and crafting your own steampunk style.

It’s been a wonderful year getting to know the steampunk community in my city and the folks at the Toronto Steampunk Society are some of the most welcoming, creative and inspiring people who I’m happy to call friends now. I was worried too when I first started to come out to events, and for any and all newcomers to the genre, my advice is to put yourself out there and join in the fun! The borders of steampunk are expansive and all are welcome.
