~ YA STEAMPUNK ~
~ Details Coming Soon~
I am planning on writing this novel for NaNoWriMo this November.
In brief it is about a young servant in the 1880′s who gets a place at the same address as her best friend only to find her missing. Her friend has somehow failed in her work and has not been seen since. In her search she uncovers a terrible secret that is being hidden by her employers and finds that knowledge is perhaps the biggest weapon of them all. In terrible danger she must calm her fears and continue to work unseen and unnoticed until she find a way to escape the power of her employers.
Yes i have been vague above and not really very exciting but I don’t want to give the game away till it is being worked on.
Some people have asked me “What genre is this going to be? Is it a true Steampunk?”
Currently, probably not. although the series develops into a more Steampunk world later on. (Potentially). I’m currently having trouble categorising this one. It has Steam elements, set in 1885 London and is an alternate history. BUT. There are no airships and brass goggles. I have brass lasoo however *grin*.
At the moment is is a mix of Historical, Urban Fantasy with a dash of Steampunk throw in for good measure. If the recipe works it works. If not i’ll re-bake it as full steampunk or urban fantasy.
