March 2010


Calista Taylor is an agented author of steampunk/gaslight romance and non-fiction, with a steampunk clothing craft book due out in September 2012 and now available for pre-order. When not running things over with a sewing machine or lacing herself into a corset, Calista can be found tapping away on her laptop, tormenting her characters, and riddling the streets of Victorian London with dead bodies and heaving bosoms. She’s also a creative cook who can't follow recipes, a versatile crafter, and a happy geek.

The Next Big Thing (Week 29).
When Robert K. Lewis, one of the most amazing and utterly kick-butt writers I know, asked me if I'd take part in The Next Big Thing Blog Hop, I couldn't say no.  And did I mention he's got a book being released in just a few months?  Guaranteed to blow you away.  
Figured this would be a great opportunity to tell you a little more about my most current books.
