Okay, tell me the first thing that went through your mind when you read "A Punk Full Of Steam"? NO CHEATING! LOL.
Well, up until recently, I had no idea what Steampunk was. I saw the word all over cyber space, but had no clue what it was all about. But we learn something new everyday. And I love learning new things.
So steampunk is not a punk who is filled with steam, as in a rebellious youngster/hoodlum who is filled with an inflated sense of his own self-importance; nor is it the title of an album. I've discovered that it is a genre. I think it has something to do with machinery. Somebody please elaborate here?
Jason Reyes, who writes in this genre, is set to release his book dragonfly Warrior. Check out the cover and the blurb…
The Mechanica Wars: Savage Machines Are Afoot…
At the age of twenty, Kanze Zenjiro's bloody footprints mark the bodies of those who stood in his way to protect the throne of Nihon. Now, the tyrannical Iberian Empire is bent on destroying his kingdom, and they send their steam-powered giants and iron spiders against him.
Zen embarks on a quest that takes him on the most dangerous journey of his life. To succeed, Zen must live up to his nickname, the Dragonfly Warrior, and kill all his enemies with only a sword and a pair of six-guns. He is called upon to somehow survive a test of faith and loyalty in a world so cruel and merciless, it borders on madness.
Book Information: Dragonfly Warrior is a steampunk adventure like no other. It's a dynamic mix of Asian and European mythology, the Wild West, martial arts, traditional fantasy, and high powered steam action that will keep you turning the pages.
Dragonfly Warrior is the first book of The Mechanica Wars, and will debut on January 6, 2014.

The bloggers we really miss…and the ones we would really miss!
Do you have a couple blogger buddies who aren’t posting as often? Those who’ve pulled back and seem absent from the blogging world? Do you have blogger buddies you are grateful they are still around and would miss if they vanished? Now is your chance to show your appreciation and spotlight them!
On November 8, list one to three bloggers you really miss and one to three bloggers you would miss if they stopped blogging. Then go leave a comment on those blogs.
Our blogger friends are special – time to let them know!
I truly appreciate each and every blogger who stops by to read/leave a comment. Of course there are those who are extra special, but there are sooooo many… I just cannot pinpoint a few.
However, I'm going to list a few bloggers who I seem to have lost along the way…
Now I'm off to let them know that I'm thinking about them… try and re-connect with them…
