The excellent people at Sounds Of Steam are running an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for outside broadcasting equipment. If you don’t know them, they’re a steampunk radio show bringing music, interviews and discussion of what they’re drinking to the world. All of the archived shows are available as podcasts and they’re well worth a listen.
Please stop by and drop a few dollars in their hat if you can. They have some wonderful contribution perks, one of which includes a digital download of Firebrand in .epub, .mobi or .pdf format as well as books by Travis I. Sivart, Wendy L. Callahan, Deborah Dalton and Tonia Brown. There is also a generous assortment of music available and some truly amazing wearable art as well as much more – it’s worth stopping by the Indiegogo page just to take a look.
In other news, today’s writing snippet, a discussion between Vane-Egypt Considine, Considine Prime, and his godmother Lael Liang Malabranca, Malabranca Prime:
“Good,” she said. “You might be worth saving after all.”
Vane raised his eyebrows. “Am I supposed to be flattered?”
“I don’t know. Do you always do what you’re supposed to?”
“Yes,” admitted Vane. “And much good it does me.”
She rapped her knuckles soundlessly on the table. “One of these days my son will be old enough to mope round the place complaining about how hard it is to be eighteen. I want that time to come as a wonderful surprise to me. Please don’t spoil it.”
Apparently the reason that Heir Shall Not Wed Heir, Nor Heir Wed Prime is that they’d just be unproductively sarcastic at one another.
