MichelV69 @artificer13 I’ve just picked up another 4-star review for “A Bloodier Rose” http://t.co/TtIahf3g #steampunkchat -9:04 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LiaKeyes @P_Creeden Terrific! #steampunkchat -9:04 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 RT @RichardEPreston: @artificer13 #steampunkchat Uh, I just blew a copy edit deadline. But Jeff VanderMeer is my development editor Bk1&2 and he is THE BOMB! -9:04 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof @LiaKeyes That sounds great. #steampunkchat -9:04 PM Jan 25th, 2013

DavidalBarron If you “can’t write women”, you’re telling me you can’t bother to imagine what 50% of the WHOLE WORLD is thinking. #steampunkchat -9:03 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @DavidalBarron Nice! That is the perfect way to do it. #steampunkchat -9:03 PM Jan 25th, 2013

P_Creeden @LiaKeyes I would TOTALLY read that! #steampunkchat -9:03 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @artificer13 #steampunkchat Uh, I just blew a copy edit deadline. But Jeff VanderMeer is my development editor Bk1&2 and he is THE BOMB! -9:02 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @LiaKeyes That’s about 1/3 the story of my novels. #steampunkchat -9:02 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof @P_Creeden I like that. #steampunkchat -9:02 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LiaKeyes @P_Creeden But a female detective is what I have in mind. #steampunkchat -9:02 PM Jan 25th, 2013

DavidalBarron How I read? Well, if the characters suck, the story sucks. I’ll notice if you “can’t write women”, though. #steampunkchat -9:02 PM Jan 25th, 2013

benditty RT @wakefieldproof: @MichelV69 @benditty That’s what I was going to say. Photovoltaicpunk lacks a ring to it #steampunkchat -9:02 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @P_Creeden Oooh, sounds interesting, actually. #steampunkchat -9:02 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LiaKeyes @P_Creeden HA! My father was a mechanic, too. In London. #steampunkchat -9:02 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @wakefieldproof … can I recommend a 120hz buzzer then? Just stick it on the end of the whole thing? #steampunkchat -9:01 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LiaKeyes *rushes off to check that out* RT @BoArthur: @LiaKeyes absolutely not. I love Arcadia Snips and the Steamwork Consortium #steampunkchat -9:01 PM Jan 25th, 2013

P_Creeden Because my father, brother, and husband were all auto mechanics, I’ve got a female protag mechanic on the brain… #steampunkchat -9:01 PM Jan 25th, 2013

DavidalBarron How I write? Well, the characters appear with their own gender identity, then I cast them in the plot. #steampunkchat -9:01 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof @MichelV69 @benditty That’s what I was going to say. Photovoltaicpunk lacks a ring to it #steampunkchat -9:00 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LyndseyLewellen I personally didn’t want to read books unless they had both female and male protaganists. But now, I’ll read either. #steampunkchat -9:00 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @artificer13 @MichelV69 @LiaKeyes 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is, and always shall be, my sci-fi altar. #steampunkchat -9:00 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 Goodness, the time has simply slipped away! Any last minute #shamelessplugs? #steampunkchat -9:00 PM Jan 25th, 2013

benditty RT @MichelV69: @benditty As long as your solar power touches mirrors, frensel lenses and a stirling engine, I’m with you. 🙂 #steampunkchat -9:00 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LiaKeyes What about female protagonist in a male profession, based on an historical precedent? #steampunkchat -8:59 PM Jan 25th, 2013

DavidalBarron @michelv69 @wakefieldproof @LiaKeyes No topic! Very well. Let battle commence. #steampunkchat -8:59 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @benditty As long as your solar power touches mirrors, frensel lenses and a stirling engine, I’m with you. 🙂 #steampunkchat -8:59 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @MichelV69 @LiaKeyes “80 Days” is positively lovely, but then again I’m a huge Verne fan. #steampunkchat -8:59 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LiaKeyes @MichelV69 Phew! That makes me feel a little better about it. Let’s huddle in the corner near the snacks. #steampunkchat -8:58 PM Jan 25th, 2013

DavidalBarron FREEWHEELING! That never causes trouble. #steampunkchat -8:58 PM Jan 25th, 2013

benditty Is it cool at all to be a solar power punk? #steampunkchat -8:58 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LyndseyLewellen @P_Creeden We’re fashionably late #steampunkchat -8:58 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @DavidalBarron Come on in, the chat room is fine! The topic is there is no topic. 🙂 #steampunkchat -8:58 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof @DavidalBarron welcome! #steampunkchat -8:58 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LyndseyLewellen Can’t speak for the guys, but my husband really only reads books with male protagonists. #steampunkchat -8:58 PM Jan 25th, 2013

P_Creeden @LyndseyLewellen No sweat – I just got here myself 10 min ago! #steampunkchat -8:57 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LiaKeyes @DavidalBarron No topic, apparently – we’re freewheeling! #steampunkchat -8:57 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @LiaKeyes … you and me both on the *mumble* count… #steampunkchat -8:57 PM Jan 25th, 2013

DavidalBarron @liakeyes No. [but I don’t know the topic of #steampunkchat this week] -8:56 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @LiaKeyes Nope. I read books with believable protagonists. Preferably ones that make me want to cheer them on. #steampunkchat -8:56 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof @LiaKeyes I tend to prefer that, but only because I can identify better. #steampunkchat -8:56 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LiaKeyes @P_Creeden I really must re-read that! It’s been *mumble mumble* decades… #aroundtheworldin80days #steampunkchat -8:56 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LyndseyLewellen Only what, 5 min left in #steampunkchat! Where the hey was I? -8:55 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @P_Creeden … only instead of sledges, they were using very fancy carriages. #steampunkchat -8:55 PM Jan 25th, 2013

LiaKeyes Do you gentlemen present only read books with male protagonists? #steampunkchat -8:55 PM Jan 25th, 2013

P_Creeden @MichelV69 LOL – had no idea! It needs a comeback. #steampunkchat -8:54 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 RT @wakefieldproof: I posted this last week, but if anyone is self-pubbing, running a press, etc. I’d love to chat. #steampunkchat -8:32 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof How many of you are solo-entrepreneurs? Solopreneurs? #steampunkchat -8:32 PM Jan 25th, 2013

stephlynn_smith Taking a short break from my steampunk book to focus on my YA modern Frankenstein adaptation. #steampunkchat -8:31 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof I posted this last week, but if anyone is self-pubbing, running a press, etc. I’d love to chat. #steampunkchat -8:30 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @VonMalcolm Right now, I’m working in slow-time on a related, but very different focus, novel. Same “world”, different cast. #steampunkchat -8:30 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @MichelV69 #steampunkchat I worked there two summers and falls – but never in the depths of winter. -8:30 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @VonMalcolm The original plan was a trilogy, but it might wind up four instead. It depends on how cooperative my chars are #steampunkchat -8:29 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 RT @VonMalcolm: @MichelV69 How about you? -Is ‘The Sauder Diaries’ a trilogy or an ongoing series? #SteampunkChat -8:29 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @RichardEPreston Well, it had to be pretty bad for that. One -was- an icebreaker. But the fixed link is night & day of diff #steampunkchat -8:28 PM Jan 25th, 2013

FebruaryGrace @artificer13 Thank you, good sir! Have a great evening. Drat. I wanted to chat *pouts* Talk to you soon! #steampunkchat -8:28 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 (( DJ_Calliope started playing “Victorian Vigilante” by Abney Park http://t.co/Xq9mBO5h )) #steampunkchat -8:27 PM Jan 25th, 2013

VonMalcolm @MichelV69 How about you? -Is ‘The Sauder Diaries’ a trilogy or an ongoing series? #SteampunkChat -8:27 PM Jan 25th, 2013

FebruaryGrace @MichelV69 Thanks Michel! :~) Appreciate it. I think I just need to get some sleep. Talk to you later! #steampunkchat -8:27 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @FebruaryGrace G’nite. Feel better. #steampunkchat -8:27 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @MichelV69 @DelilahSDawson At least you have bridge for PEI now. When the ferries were frozen u were imprisoned. #steampunkchat -8:26 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @FebruaryGrace I hope you feel better. TTFN! #steampunkchat -8:26 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof @einsteinsarcade I’ll check them out. It’s nice that we don’t have to buy entire albums now – I do like a few tunes. #steampunkchat -8:26 PM Jan 25th, 2013

FebruaryGrace Sorry to miss #steampunkchat tonight, computer issues just when chat started, now a massive headache. Catch you guys next week! -8:25 PM Jan 25th, 2013

DelilahSDawson @MichelV69 @artificer13 Pretty cold here, too, although nary a snowflake. My fingers went numb. In GA, that’s madness! #steampunkchat -8:25 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @wakefieldproof Will do, good sir. #steampunkchat -8:25 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof @MichelV69 please shoot me an email at scottmwakefield@hotmail.com. I can’t seem to send one your way. #steampunkchat -8:24 PM Jan 25th, 2013

einsteinsarcade @wakefieldproof That said, I really like @SPGiraffe. A LOT. #steampunkchat -8:24 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @DelilahSDawson No, just farking cold out this way … we had 15cm of snow, followed by a two day melt, and then deep freeze #steampunkchat -8:23 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @DelilahSDawson Welcome aboard! Barely any snow here- too cold… #steampunkchat -8:22 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 RT @MichelV69 So what has everyone been up to? Any special projects on the go? #steampunkchat -8:21 PM Jan 25th, 2013

einsteinsarcade @wakefieldproof It is pretty much all either industrial or cabaret. Don’t get me started on the goofy novelty rap acts. #steampunkchat -8:21 PM Jan 25th, 2013

DelilahSDawson What’s up, y’all? Anybody snowed in? #steampunkchat -8:21 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @Jenny_Schwartz Bye Jenny you are the best! #steampunkchat -8:20 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @Jenny_Schwartz Ta! Enjoy your “not frozen to the bone” weather… #steampunkchat -8:19 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @Jenny_Schwartz Be well! #steampunkchat -8:19 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof @Jenny_Schwartz have a great day #steampunkchat -8:19 PM Jan 25th, 2013

Jenny_Schwartz Sorry I have to duck out early. Hopefully I’ll catch you all next week 🙂 Happy weekend! #steampunkchat -8:19 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof @Jenny_Schwartz Ketch is is SE (some say NW Canada), and it’s very temperate. Tongass National Forest. You should come visit #steampunkchat -8:18 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @FaublesFables Lurk away! Don’t let us interrupt a creative streak! 🙂 #steampunkchat -8:18 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 So what has everyone been up to? Any special projects on the go? #steampunkchat -8:17 PM Jan 25th, 2013

Jenny_Schwartz @wakefieldproof @RichardEPreston I love being near the sea. Didn’t realise Alaska had rainforest #geographyfail #steampunkchat -8:17 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @FaublesFables Keep a typing, then! #steampunkchat -8:16 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @artificer13 Ahhhhh ….#steampunkchat -8:15 PM Jan 25th, 2013

Jenny_Schwartz @FaublesFables Hiya! 🙂 #Steampunkchat -8:15 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @MichelV69 Agreed. #steampunkchat -8:14 PM Jan 25th, 2013

FaublesFables Terrible me, am only lurking at #steampunkchat tonight. Too busy typing my li’l fingers off on a project. (Hi, guys!) -8:14 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @RichardEPreston as close as anything can be… #steampunkchat -8:14 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @wakefieldproof Not at all. Part of the beauty of #steampunk, really. Enjoy the parts you enjoy, ignore the parts you don’t #steampunkchat -8:14 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @Jenny_Schwartz Awesome! #steampunkchat -8:14 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @wakefieldproof Some steampunks love ragtime, and there’s electro-swing- which is very popular in some corners. #steampunkchat -8:14 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @artificer13 I haven’t heard the music of all of them – would u consider any one a true steampunk band? #steampunkchat -8:13 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @wakefieldproof oh, we’ve only got 2″ of snow. Been too cold for anything lately, until this AM it was bare frozen earth. #steampunkchat -8:13 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof Is that sacrilegious to say? #steampunkchat -8:13 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof I can’t seem to get into any music that claims to be steampunk – it’s not my thing. I’m into classical and bluegrass/old time #steampunkchat -8:12 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @artificer13 I agree, very much so. #steampunkchat -8:12 PM Jan 25th, 2013

MichelV69 @RichardEPreston To answer your ??, most “Steampunk” bands are visually steampunk, but most of the music they play isn’t. #steampunkchat -8:12 PM Jan 25th, 2013

Jenny_Schwartz Goldrush miners used steampowered equip 1890s & yuk water. Could drink the steam-distilled water #steampunkchat #history -8:12 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof @artificer13 I’m from Buffalo, so I’d LOVE to have some (feet of) snow. #steampunkchat -8:11 PM Jan 25th, 2013

Jenny_Schwartz Interesting desalination link to steampunk. Question: Can I fit info in a tweet? Will try! #steampunkchat -8:11 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @RichardEPreston what about Steam Powered Giraffe, The Cog is Dead, Abney Park, Professor Elemental, Vernian Process? #steampunkchat -8:11 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @artificer13 agreed! #steampunkchat Henceforth, Mumford and Sons is now my offical steampunk music lol. -8:10 PM Jan 25th, 2013

Jenny_Schwartz @wakefieldproof Opposite of us. City’s investing in desalination plants #steampunkchat -8:10 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @Jenny_Schwartz @wakefieldproof whataminute, it’s warm enough to RAIN somewhere? It’s so cold here the air holds no moisture #steampunkchat -8:09 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @artificer13 I have to agree – anything I hear calling itself steampunk seems to be steampunk-lyric driven thrash metal. #steampunkchat -8:09 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof @Jenny_Schwartz I’m in Ketchikan, and we are the rainiest city in the US. It is literally a rainforest. #steampunkchat -8:09 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @RichardEPreston in many ways #steampunk music ends up being “Music that steampunks like” more than anything else. #steampunkchat -8:09 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @RichardEPreston Steampunk music is only marginally harder to pin down than the genre #steampunk itself… so, no. #steampunkchat -8:08 PM Jan 25th, 2013

Jenny_Schwartz @wakefieldproof Are you competing in the horrible weather stakes? I think you’ve got a winner 😉 #steampunkchat -8:08 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @TiffanyAndLupus @Jenny_Schwartz @artificer13 Hi Lupus we just started. #steampunkchat -8:07 PM Jan 25th, 2013

wakefieldproof we’ve had sideways rain for over a week #steampunkchat -8:07 PM Jan 25th, 2013

RichardEPreston @artificer13 #steampunkchat – I have a question – I see some steampunk bands – but is there really identifiable “steampunk’ music? -8:07 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @TiffanyAndLupus @Jenny_Schwartz @RichardEPreston just starting, welcome aboard! #steampunkchat -8:06 PM Jan 25th, 2013

artificer13 @Jenny_Schwartz it was briefly fairly warm today- 20*f / -6.66*c so that’s not too bad. @RichardEPreston #steampunkchat -8:06 PM Jan 25th, 2013

Jenny_Schwartz @TiffanyAndLupus You’re exactly on time ! Yay! #steampunkchat -8:06 PM Jan 25th, 2013

Jenny_Schwartz @artificer13 @RichardEPreston I was all set to complain about the heat…then remembered your chill. No complaints! #steampunkchat -8:04 PM Jan 25th, 2013
