First, we need to go to San Francisco to pick up Rob, the guest of honor.  Cornelis, it feels like we are already under weigh.  I’m surprised you put your book down without a fight.  What was all that clicking about?  What do you mean click you?

Cornelis:  No, click me, not click you. Click Me Happy.”  It’s exciting for me to be able to choose the book’s ending, Teagan.  But I simply couldn’t pick one.  So, I…

Girl with CherriesWelcome back to Hidebound Hump Day and the next episode of the steampunk serial.  The next random “thing” a reader left to drive the plot of this story should come as no surprise — “steam engine.”  Let’s see if I use it in a way you expect.  (winks)

Previously with Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers

Chapter 6 The handsome innkeeper, Ignatius Belle, has caught Felicity’s eye.  Yet Copper is decidedly distrustful of the tall man.  Who is right? Is Felicity thinking with her head or her… erm… heart?  What about that sheriff?  Can we trust him?  More worrisome than whom to trust and not, Cornelis disappeared with a disconcerting “flat” pop.

All aboard!
