DOC Soon to be in the New Zealand library system!

While I’m in Oamaru for the NZ Steampunk Festival, I donated a copy of The Department of Curiosities to the Oamaru branch of the Waitiki District Libraries. It will take a while to go through the system and then will be available to borrow. (I’m told you can do inter-library loans in NZ as well.)
A big thank you to Jean (pictured) and Macleod for making me feel welcome. They were keen to have another steampunk novel available for borrowing.

Hello from Oamaru Steampunk Festival!

Hello everyone, from Oamaru, New Zealand.

It’s our first time in our fellow lands of the Antipodes. We’ve met new friends and shared tea and cake (thank you to Angele Beesley-Mackenzie for inviting us).
The Steampunk Festival is just gearing up and we’re here! This is the Harbour Street Victorian Precinct where most of the events will be held. Can’t wait!
