Today we welcome author Jack Baillot.
Greetings! My name is Jack, more or less, and I’d like to thank Suzanne for asking me to guest post today.
I have recently published a book, titled Haphazardly Implausible. It is a Steampunk adventure story. This was the first Steampunk book I’ve ever written and when I first began it I didn’t even know what Steampunk was, I just wanted to write a story about Air Pirates and an airship.
Since finishing it, and the other three in the series, I’ve come to realize just how much I enjoy Steampunk. It has almost everything I love about stories. Airships – well, anything that flies – gears, very cool machines, and all kinds of impossibilities. Not to mention the costumes are fun to create and there is usually a great deal of clocks in Steampunk books.
This all leads to the fact of why I am now a Steampunk author. The other books I am working on now have Steampunk elements in them though not all take place in the Victorian era.
I love thinking up new machines and imagining the ways they will work. I get to put a new twist on the outfits the characters wear, which is always a lot of fun. And I get, for even a little while, to be a watch maker which is a job I would have taken up if I wasn’t an author.
I get to take history and change it, and really, who doesn’t love the idea of doing that? (Also, I get to spend most of my time flying around in airships, which makes it doubly worth it. Even if the Air Pirates can get a little grumpy from time to time.)

Thanks again, Suzanne for allowing me to come by!
Peter Jones, an Aeropilot in the Scottish Royal Air
Force, has grown up believing his parents abandoned him.
Isidore Thaddeus Reichmann, a famous detective running
from his past, is trying to save the last person he cares
about. Singur, an inventor who has been forced to hide his
real name his whole life or risk being killed, holds an
important secret. These three have never met. They live in
different countries and have little in common.
Little do they know their lives are about to entwine and
that together they have the power to save the world from
complete destruction, or destroy everything.
Loyalties are questioned. Friendships are betrayed.
Trust is shaken. Who do you turn to when the friends
you’ve always relied upon become your worst enemies
