I'm a Math and Computer Science geek. Poet in many computer languages, but I only do senruy in English. Someday I'll do a sestina and my brain will explode.

The prose I write is about Sherlock Holmes' brother Mycroft, Steampunk, Time Travel & SF. That's either Science Fiction, or Subversive Fiction, it depends on my mood.

Don't come here! Go there!

This is just a placeholder telling y'all that all my blogging takes place at http://diogenesclubarchives.blogspot....

Good question. I don't have any solid answer, except to promote your book, make it known to reviewers, and offer interviews to blogs of note. I shouldn't say anything b/c this is what I feel I knew least about the publishing biz.
