The first annoucement that is coming out of the changes previously announced is a new blog – Of Dust and Gold. This is a collaborative project between my fiance and I, based on a steampunk setting we are planning to write in.
The website is still in the very early stages of construction, but will be regularly update, wtih a serialised story starting to appear soon, we hope.
Of Dust and Gold centres around an old tramp freighter airship, Aria, and her eccletic crew, as they travel a region modelled on the Colonial Australia gold-rushes, with a steampunk flavour to it. Hence why I found the old gold rush photos so interesting, and relevant.
We hope to give it a really Australian feel, which is somewhat different to most current steampunk.
