scary bloggers and super creeps

It’s Sunday, and here’s a bit of overdue catchup: The first two Peavley Manor novelettes, “Book Fair Frenzy (Or, Macalley Turns The Page)” and “The Thorn Harbour Road Rally (Or, Macalley Takes The Wheel)” are now available on iTunes, Kobo and Barnes & Noble (for your Nook) as well as Amazon! Search your store of choice for e-books by “Robert Dahlen”! You can still read “Book Fair Frenzy” for free here, and you can get your e-book of “Thorn Harbour Road Rally” for free by subscribing to my mailing list, but you can also show your support for what I do by buying one of my e-books or gifting one to a friend! More after the cut. Continue reading

I never blogged anything out of the blue

Sunday catchup, and I’ll start with this reminder I post from time to time: If you’ve enjoyed Copper Cove, or any of my other stories, would you be so kind as to leave a review somewhere? Reviews do help people decide if a book is for them, and increase its visibility. They’re one easy way to support any author whose work you enjoy, not just me. So, head over to AmazonGoodreads, or your social media of choice and spread the word. Many thanks! More after the cut. Continue reading

closed his eyes and moved his lips – “It’s time we should be blogging”

Sunday catchup! I’m back from Gaslight Expo 2017, rested and revved up for further writing and steampunk adventures! (Sorry about missing last week. The tea dueling started at a rather early hour on Sunday.) There’ll be a quick wrap up, and other things, after the cut, but this announcement first for those who might have missed it on social media:

Coming later this fall – the new Peavley Manor novelette, “The Missing Mallard (Or Duck, Macalley! Duck!)” The feathers will fly when Alice and Macalley get mixed up in a crazy yet sinister scheme! Stay tuned for more! Continue reading

always blogging in the same car

And Sunday catchup is back! My apologies for missing last week. I had two things going on – finishing the latest draft of Copper Cove, and trying not to melt during the monster heat wave that California had going over the Labor Day weekend. Holy cats, was it hot. There are a few goodies after the cut, but first, this update: Copper Cove has been sent to two beta readers; one has finished and given some useful feedback, and the other should be done shortly. The cover designer is hard at work. With any luck, I’ll be able to announce a publication date sometime this week. Click for more! Continue reading

waiting for the blog of sound and vision

Sunday catchup is late, I know, but that’s because…we have first draft sign! The first draft of Copper Cove is done! Review and rewriting will come shortly, but before long, the book should be ready to go!

So, things are a bit short this week, but I wanted to mention that the people of Houston and the Texas Gulf Coast could use your help after Hurricane Harvey. The crowdfunding website Global Giving has set up a donation page to collect funds to assist area charities with both short-term and long-term needs. Please donate here, or to your other charity of choice. Thanks.

wait until the crowd blogs

Sunday catchup, full steam ahead! Work is continuing on Copper Cove, and though we don’t have First Draft Sign yet, that should only be a day or two away. I’ll keep you posted. After the cut: Where you can find me (or, places to avoid in the near future). Continue reading

blogging glass in your room again

Sunday catchup, and again it’s going to be light, between working on Copper Cove and the fact that some of my future plans are still being finalized. I did want to let you know that later today, the ever-delightful Madame Askew will be doing Facebook Live videos from San Diego’s Steampunk Day At The Library! Click here for more info on the event, and here for Madame Askew’s Facebook page, where you can sign up to be updated whenever she and/or the Grand Arbiter go live!

This coming Tuesday will be a red-letter day for nerd music fans, as it’s the official release day for Love Problems by the Doubleclicks and Trust Issues by the PDX Broadsides! I’ll try to have reviews for both soon, but no promises.

And another one of nerd music’s bright lights, Meri Amber, is now doing regular live shows on Twitch! Follow her there to get updates as to when she’s on, or check her Twitter timeline.

And with that, tea and writing call. More later.

let me blog away with you

Sunday catchup is going to be short this week, for… (glances at pile of laundry) reasons. (peeks over at dish-filled sink) Work is progressing on my next book, and I’m hoping to have the first draft done by the end of August if not sooner. I’ll keep you updated. Until next time…well, I won’t leave you empty-handed.
