General Discussion / Get Writing 2012
« on: December 30, 2011, 09:32:39 pm »
Hi all,

I know I discussed Get Writing with lots of people at Fantasycon and the London Open Night but we have some more exciting news:

Michael Rowley, formerly the SFF buyer for Waterstones has joined Ebury Press, Random House as Editorial Director and will be coming along to Get Writing on Saturday February 11th 2012 at the De Havilland Campus of the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield.

We already have a great cast list including MD Lachlan, Suzanne McLeod, Lee Harris from Angry Robot, Toby Frost, Donna Condon from Piatkus and lots more. It's an absolute bargain at just 55 for the day but tickets are selling fast, don't miss out!

General Discussion / Steampunk

I just did a search on Steampunk on this forum and didn't find anything. I just wondered what people think of the genre, good, bad, indifferent?

Any recommendations?

I joined the BFS a few weeks ago and have just got around to visiting the forum.

I am currently part way through writing two novels. One, described by one reader as a rural urban fantasy, is on the back burner for now although I'm six chapters in. The other, which is very much in progress is now nine chapters in and progressing quickly.

I'm also starting to write some fantasy short stories and hope to submit something to the BFS for the magazines at some stage.

I grew up on books such as The Weirdstone of Brisingamen, The Moon of Gomrath and of course, the Narnia series, later I went through a sword and sorcery phase for a few years then moved into watching movies. This was mainly because of time pressures, due to studying accountancy then moving on to an Environmental Studies degree.

I love films about angels and demons such as The Prophecy and Constantine, and only recently have had more time to get reading again. Most recently I've been reading Alex Bell, Suzanne McLeod, Paul Magrs, Neil Gaiman and Toby Frost and I have a huge to be read pile which includes some steampunk.

I'm gutted that I missed out on this year's Fantasycon, but will be there next year by hook or by crook! Hopefully by then I'll have got to know some of you online and at some other events in between.
