Technology & Science of the Victorian Times – Guest Post by Meljean Brook

Technology & Science of the Victorian Times – Guest Post by Meljean Brook Welcome to the final day of THE IRON DUKE WEEK here at That’s What I’m Talking About.  Today I want to welcome back author, Meljean Brook, who is here to discuss some of the research she completed while writing the Iron Seas series.  So without further delay… Welcome Meljean… Thank you, Jen. One of the best parts of writing the Iron Seas series is the research. From nanotechnology to electromagnetic pulse weapons, from steam engines to automatons—it’s all in there…but it all has to be twisted to fit my world. This is the hard part for me. I have an excellent imagination, but I also want all of the technology...

Author Interview – Meljean Brook

Author Interview – Meljean Brook Today I have the honor of bringing to you one of my favorite authors, Meljean Brook.  Meljean was raised in the middle of the woods, and hid under her blankets at night with fairy tales, comic books, and romances. She left the forest and went on a misguided tour through the world of accounting before focusing on her first loves, reading and writing–and she realized that monsters, superheroes, and happily-ever-afters are easily found between the covers, as well as under them, so she set out to make her own. Meljean lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and daughter. Please help me welcome Meljean to That’s What I’m Talking...

Sunday Snippets #28 – The Iron Duke Week

Sunday Snippets #28 – The Iron Duke Week This week’s Sunday Snippets is a special Sneak Peek for THE IRON DUKE WEEK.  This snippet was selected by author Meljean Brook just for you!  Enjoy! Mina stepped into the lift, standing to the side to make room for Trahaearn and Newberry. The Iron Duke boarded and closed the cage behind him. Newberry abruptly stopped, staring at them through the grating. Trahaearn locked the gate. “It will be too crowded and over its weight capacity, constable. I’ll send it back down for you.” Mina looked at him in disbelief. Though it’d be a tight fit, the lift could accommodate her assistant. Then the duke glanced down at her, wearing...

Sunday Snippets #27

Sunday Snippets #27 From Crux by Moira Rogers A few months ago, Mackenzie wouldn’t have noticed the man following her. Of course, a few months ago, Mackenzie had never been followed before, not with any real dedication. From time to time a customer looking to score would wait for her outside the bar, but she’d had no trouble dissuading them from following her home. Then Marcus had walked into her life, and a whole new world of paranoia opened up for her. She’d gotten very good at noticing a footstep where one shouldn’t be, and even better at remembering faces she saw a bit too often to be coincidence. It was a...
