Book Research and Facebook Author Page

10 Jun

Alrighty!

I’m busy with research for my book. I will soon share a short excerpt so you can all get a taste of what is to come. At this point, I’m still exploring all the possibilities of my steampunk adventure so if you have any suggestions, leave me a comment and I’ll take it into consideration.

There are some Victorian books I’d like to read (about Victorian asylums, hospitals, cemeteries, homes, etc) for inspiration and ideas. I love history and my book will be a mixture of history, humour and plenty of steam and spunk. 😉

Apart from airships, what is your favourite steampunk element? What absolutely NEEDS to be included?

In the meantime, I’ve started looking up agents interested in the genre so I can start sending out queries sometime soon (read: when I have written more than 1 page). This weekend will be dedicated to fleshing out the plot, potential characters and hopefully finishing chapter 1.

I will also try to keep my Facebook Author Page up-to-date. I just created it and it can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Renate-Linnenkoper/125803740834565

All ‘Likes’ would be greatly appreciated.
