Copper whispered a secret! But you know how loudly she whispers…

So I might as well let you in on it too. It’s about the next episode. No, I promise I really didn’t know it when I posted the previous episode — you know these serials are pure “pantser” unplanned fun — but it turns out that Episode 33 was the penultimate installment of our “interactive” Steampunk serial. I’ve written the conclusion, which is waiting in the wings of my master document.

Copper, the Alchemist, & the Woman in Trousers concludes this weekend!

Come on now… you knew this was going to happen. Stop crying or I’ll cry too.

What’s next?

I love that “Indie” has endlessly different subjects, genres, and formats.  I’m happy that every indie author and blogger is unique.  Despite all that diversity, it seems that all indie authors agree on the importance of reviews – whether posted in a blog, magazine, or on a bookseller’s site.

I wished I could wave a magic wand for both of us… but neither am I Glenda the Good Witch.

However, with each serial episode, I do promote another blogger.  So allow me to introduce to you…

Argle-bargleCopious but meaningless talk or writing; nonsense.

While all of you were at the station (and thank you from the bottom of my heart) I’m the one who missed the steam locomotive to the Victorian Era.  Unfortunately I’m studying for a certification exam for my “real” job. You should hear all my moaning and groaning about it. Now that’s argle-bargle…

However, I didn’t want to leave you without something from Copper and her friends.  So I’m re-sharing this character recap, with a few updates.


As the story-line draws close to an end, the spontaneous nature of the serials actually becomes a challenge for me.  By this point there are a lot of things — clues…
