Guest Blog Post at The Passing Place

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

Mark Hayes  (who wrote a lovely review of ‘The Department of Curiosities’) is opening his metaphorical arms and welcoming me in – this time for a guest blog post.

The brief? Anything on writing, steampunk, my own books… I thought I’d touch on it all, and revisit a ‘Steampunk Hands Around the World’ post from 2017, which is still very relevent for me today.

You can read it on his blog, The Passing Place, tommorrow (UK time) around noon – about 9.30 pm Adelaide time, I think.

I’ll be at the Adelaide Comic and Toy Fair tomorrow (Monday long weekend holiday) with all five books, some mugs, badges and tshirts. I’ll also have my teacup hats if you want a quick splash of steampunk!

See you at 43 Lower Portrush Rd, Marden.

Authors love people reading their books. We love reviews too!

The first Goodreads review for ‘The Department of Curiosities’ was posted recently.

“Having purchased this book from the author at the Adelaide Steampunk Festival this year (2019) I didn’t want to leave it too long without being read. The most recent book I’ve read with dirigibles in it was the post-apocalyptic “Mortal Engines” series. Carlisle’s novel though is set in Queen Victoria’s steam-powered British Empire, of which Australia is very much a part…(snip)
If you like a bit of mystery and action, not to mention the mechanical “curiosities” of the inventive steampunk realm, you’ll probably enjoy this book. I did.”     
– Kerry Hennigan.

As you know, I love tea! This year we had tea tasting at the Adelaide Steampunk Festival.

The second video from this year’s Adelaide Steampunk Festival is a tea tasting. Of course! (Now if there’d only been chocolate…) Thanks to Ali at Wyverstone Tea for allowing me to create this video.

I bought the Petals and Nettles, and highly recomend it!
