Clockwork Alchemy Workshops!


It’s May and Clockwork Alchemy is back! Clockwork Alchemy is the San Francisco Bay Area’s premiere Steampunk convention. Once again, it will be held at the Double Tree Inn, San Jose CA, on Memorial Day weekend. The theme this year is Myth, Legends and Lore, so there should be an extra dose of paranormal goodness mixed in with the steampunk.

I hope to see you there, where I’ll be presenting the following workshops (and they are workshops, not lectures, because I think lectures are boring):

Magical Creativity

Friday, May 22nd at 2 PM

The Victorians produced a remarkable crop of artists, writers and dreamers – from Emerson to Yeats to the Victorian fairy painters. Many of them also dabbled in psycho-magical philosophy. In this workshop, we’ll explore Victorian techniques for expanding your artistic vision
and creativity. If you’re a writer, artist, or would just like to learn techniques for boosting your creativity, join us!

DIY Magical Societies

Saturday, May 23 at 3 PM

Learn how to build your own steampunk magical society. In this workshop, you’ll practice steampunk magical rituals, including a pathworking, design your own sigil, and learn the basic elements of secret magical societies so you can build your own. All participants will be initiated into the Order of the Clockwork Alchemist!

Victorians and the Fairies

Saturday, May 23 at 5 PM

Why were the Victorian obsession with fairies? Earn your fairy wings and learn how the dark history of the fae took a turn during the Victorian days and where fairies exist in the steampunk universe.


I’ll be reading at Friday Night’s Book Release party, from 7 – 9 PM

If you miss the workshops, look for me in author alley, where I’ll be helping to flog Clockwork Alchemy’s first anthology of steampunk short stories: Twelve Hours Later. I’ve got two short stories inside it, which occur between books 1 and 2 of my Sensibility Grey series.

Hope to see you there!
