Hello everyone!

I'm new to this and I'm very excited to join this community. I'm an author and filmmaker. My first book "PERIL", which is being offered for free on Amazon 4/23, 4/24/ and 4/25 is also the first film project I'm attempting to produce as a feature film. Mind you, I have no agent, production company backing me, or major Hollywood producer connections. I'm as Indy as they come, lol! However, what I do have is creativity, tenacity, oh and a pretty dedicated fan following (which I am grateful for and humbled by Wink). This film endeavor has brought me many tears of joy and pain; I'm guessing that's the price of admission to seeing your dreams come true. Anyway, my hope is that this community embraces me and "PERIL". Over the past few years, I've managed to get some A-list conceptual artist to read the book and they fell in love with the story. They've rendered some beautiful concept art for the project. I've marketed the film effort via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social networking sites. But, I've realized that I need to connect directly with an audience that really has a love for steampunk so here I am flaws and all. If you'd like to learn more about this amazing project please feel free to visit periluniverse.com, PERIL on Facebook, or get a free copy of the book at http://www.amazon.com/PERIL-Timothy-Holloway-ebook/dp/B008ZTD6UY/ref=redir_mobile_desktop/180-6569445-7956249?ie=UTF8&keywords=peril%20by%20timothy%20holloway&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&qid=1461326943&ref_=mp_s_a_1_1&sr=8-1

Please subscribe on the website, share and like on Facebook, tweet on twitter, and get a copy of the book on Amazon. I know that the PERIL story is great and with your support it can be awesome!

Again, thanks for the warm welcome! I feel at home Smiley

Ummm, I hate to ask (decorum and all that)... But how in any way is that even remotely Steampunk?

Looks like rather shiny soft sci-fi/space opera to me. Unless you're avoiding all the existing Steampunk tropes by using none of the normal or obvious ones of course, in which case bravo.

Anyway, grabbed your book (hurrah for free stuff) look forward to seeing you muck in and get involved with the community here.

Moving topic to Trading as it is clearly a self-promotion and / or blatant advert for the Op's works.

See, I'm going to stand by my original assessment that it's some cutting edge move to bypass all the traditional tropes such as psuedo Victorianism, tweed, moustaches and other 18xx-191x styles1 by utterly repackaging it as tepid blancmange style sci-fi. Probably ironically.

Or it's just spam for a fairly poorly written rather generic action/horror sci-fi that based on the amount I've read it seems I paid too much for.

People wishing to advertise their product wherever they can crowbar a mention in might do well to remember that everyone has been the recipient of unwanted and inappropriate for the context advertising and hucksterism and no one likes it.

Unhelpful advice: This looks about as Steampunk as Trons jockstrap.

Helpful advice: Skip the film; produce it as an audio. It's a LOT cheaper.
