New CD cover for The Gadgeteer

Originally published at karen j carlisle. You can comment here or there.

When I’m not writing, I’m designing. Last month I was working on covers – book covers, CD covers.  It’s time to reveal the first of the new artwork.
This is the cover for the CD single/digital download for The Gadgeteer,  the song I co-wrote last year with Richard Ryall of Littmus Steampunk Band.
You will find the new cover in my shop where you can get your digital copy.

Sometimes you open your emails and get a pleasant surprise. In this case it was a link to the latest post on the book blog, Suz’s Space.

Suzie is one of my long-term supporters on Patreon. Not only did she write a quick review on my short story collection, With a Twist of the Nib, (a Patreon sign up reward), but she also plugged my Patreon page.

Much appreciated, Suzie.

Down the Research Rabbit Hole…

Originally published at karen j carlisle. You can comment here or there.

I got excited on the weekend. I was catching up on some live chats by favourite authors and was reminded of some research books I had planned to get.

I bought a copy of Timetables of History. I finally found a cheap copy so I can write my series’ alternate timelines in it. I know, sacrilege, right? But so useful!

I also went looking for some Baedecker’s guides for future books. They have guides to various parts of the world from early 1800s onward. I would dearly love some hardcovers but the cheapest was almost three hundred dollars (and upward beyond six hundred). I really couldn’t afford that, so I found copies online at archive.org. I love this site!

And hence the downward slide deeper into the rabbit hole began. I’ve now got copies of guides for England, London, Northern Italy and France and Egypt, dated from 1883 to 1898…

All of which will be useful for planned books. I won’t tell you which books yet!
