Steampunk fiction, reviews and interviews

#indiethursday: A World Of Intemperance

This #indiethursday I’m sharing my love of…

 

Blurb:

“I say, Mr. Temperance, you would do well, sir, to be more aware of the world around you. The clamour of war threatens to engulf the globe. Moreover, I confess a trepidation in my soul stemming from other quarters in this galloping age of invention. I feel certain that we are at risk from threats of a supernatural origin. Do you not agree, eh hem?”
“Yes, Ma’am, Miss Plumtartt, Ma’am, I have the same sense of nameless dread gripping my pumper in it’s icy grip. Why, it looks as if you and I have uncovered a conspiracy to plunge all the world’s countries into mayhem and disaster, leaving the spoils of a conquered planet to the tender mercies of heartless tyrants using means inhuman to gain their sway. I’m glad we have the companionship of a telepathic doggie, a tin-man, and all sorts of other entertaining folks to see us through this peril, for I think we might be in a lot of trouble!”

 

To compensate for my lack of time to do long reviews just now, I’m using the #indiethursday hashtag to share the indie love and point at some fabulous indie books I’ve enjoyed reading 😀

So, what fab indie fiction are you reading / writing this month? Blessings on your brew and best of luck with all your indie endeavours, lets keep flying the flag for indie writing!

    Aw…It’s a lovely idea ❤️ 🏳️‍🌈 ❤️
    I suspect that Miss Persephone Plumtartt is the best name I’ve ever read. 🤩

      Thankyou! – I’m glad you think so! – desperately want to help fantastic indie writers as much as poss but life is so hectic at the mo and my review list is embarrassingly backlogged 😳 Miss Plumtartt is an amazing character – it’s a really fabulous series to dive into and each book is just more delightful than the last! 😻

  2. Hi Penny, what a nice surprise to find ‘World’ on your page!

    That is the original synopsis. How did you find it? I thought I did away with it years ago. Here is how the blurb is supposed to read:

    “I say, Mr. Temperance, you would do well, sir, to be more aware of the world around you. The clamour of war threatens to engulf the globe. Moreover, I confess a trepidation in my soul stemming from other quarters in this galloping age of invention. I feel certain that we are at risk from threats of a supernatural origin. Do you not agree, eh hem?”
    “Yes, Ma’am, Miss Plumtartt, Ma’am, I have the same sense of nameless dread gripping my pumper in it’s icy grip. Why, it looks as if you and I have uncovered a conspiracy to plunge all the world’s countries into mayhem and disaster, leaving the spoils of a conquered planet to the tender mercies of heartless tyrants using means inhuman to gain their sway. I’m glad we have the companionship of a telepathic doggie, a tin-man, and all sorts of other entertaining folks to see us through this peril, for I think we might be in a lot of trouble!”

    Thanks Penny! I hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
    Happy Trails!
    Your pa,
    ~Icky 🙂

      Aw I’m sorry Icky, – I took it from the original review I did of it… and yep I guess that was some time back, lol, I didn’t realise it had changed. So sorry matey I shall do a quick switch and correct it 😉
