Tea Time, A Steampunk Short Film

Plot: Set in the fanatic alternate history of the 1800s, Tea Time is a comedy that follows a conflicted mad scientist. Elizabeth is in a proper and strict world where inventors are held in high regard, but only ones that fit in. Her work has been rejected (again) and she has had it. Her Aunt Judith wants nothing more than for her to give up this foolishness, marry a proper gentleman and get out of her house (taking her machines with her). This particular day Judith has a different potential suitor waiting for her. A man Elizabeth is somewhat familiar with…

Made with the help of Kickstarter, this short film was shot with $3,000 over two days with a Canon 5D Mark 3 and some very talented people.

Prudence

Expect to see this new title hit the shelves March 17th.

Introducing the Custard Protocol series, in which Alexia Maccon’s daughter Prudence travels to India on behalf of Queen, country…and the perfect pot of tea.


When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama (“Rue” to her friends) is bequeathed an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female under similar circumstances would do — she christens it the Spotted Custard and floats off to India.

Soon, she stumbles upon a plot involving local dissidents, a kidnapped brigadier’s wife, and some awfully familiar Scottish werewolves. Faced with a dire crisis (and an embarrassing lack of bloomers), Rue must rely on her good breeding — and her metanatural abilities — to get to the bottom of it all…

Rod Duncan to complete steampunk trilogy

Leicester Mercury has an interesting, though poorly written article about Rod Duncan (Angry Robot) and his Gas-Lit Empire series. The quote that jumped out at me was one allegedly by Mr. Duncan praising his publisher “Angry Dog”.

Rod, who lives in Glenfield, said: “Angry Dog are specialist sci-fi publishers and they’re the perfect publishers for me.

robot dogI believe that the reporter either misquoted him or poor Mr. Duncan is unaware that his publisher is Angry Robot. Perhaps a Freudian slip? Maybe Angry Robot treats Duncan like a dog?

At any rate, we can expect more Gas-Lit Empire from Angry Robot.

New steampunk title: New Light Rising

New Light Rising (The Line of Kavanagh Book 1)

by M. N. Henschen

Unlike the princess she’d hoped to be when she was chosen as the next ruler of Ardara, Andolyn Grace McNeil has been on the run from her prince for more than a year. Her nation is in utter ruin, and she carries a knowledge that could push Ardarapush Ardara to the brink of civil war. Walking the edge of a blade, she runs into a unique duo of wanderers: Barden, a lovable poet and musician, and Spade, a roguish thief and
magician. Through the two of them, Andolyn will find help from the most unexpected people, hope in the most unlikely places, and strength where she never expected to see it: in
herself. Through a journey of self discovery, Andolyn reminds Ardara’s people that life can be better than it is. She shows them that they are strong enough to take back what has been stolen from them. She reminds them of the Line of Kavanagh.
