Mysterious Steampunk

I'm guest blogging over at Michele Emrath's blog, Southern City Mystery, today. It's my first time doing a guest post! I'm a little nervous..., but I don't suppose I should tell anyone that, should I? :)

I'm talking about Steampunk and what a great genre it is for mystery writers. Victorian England is an awesome setting for murder & mayhem. Add in a few steampunk devices? Fantastic!

Pop on over to Michele's and check out the post. She's got a fabulous blog - I know you'll enjoy visiting!

Have you done any guest blogging? Any advice? Hmmm. Should probably have asked that earlier...

  1. I'm sure you'll do a great job! I've never guest blogged before, but I'm interested in learning more about this genre.

    Heading over...

  2. My only advice would be to pop over there several times over the day and answer comments and questions - and promote the visit (with a link) anywhere you can, like listservs, Twitter, etc. And...have fun!

    Don't think you require any advice honey. You're doing quite well on your own.

    Can't stay long. Off to read another post of yours! :)
