This week Sebastian practices questioning Viola. We’re not entirely sure Viola enjoys the experience.
Check out the Kickstarter for the roleplaying game and the anthology here.
We’re at 51% funded, and we’ve added new levels and announced our first stretch goal!
So please share Sebastian’s progress and his spycraft to help spread the word! Cheers!
Covers are curious creations. Writers write, and then send their stories into publishing companies. They are the ones that arrange the covers, and it is always a nerve wracking event. When they arrive, authors hold their breath.
Ace Books has, as the Americans would say, knocked it out of the park. Eliza, the lighthouse, the airships, and the delightful design are all breath-taking. Once again, unfortunately Mr Wellington Books looked away at the wrong moment…or perhaps that is deliberate on his part.
The artist of this cover is actually the same cover artist for Phoenix Rising and the Janus Affair. Dominick Finelle is a free lance artist and obviously quite well educated in the steampunk arts.
The book itself is scheduled to come out in late January 2014. You can pre-order here.
Don’t forget, we are also launching the Kickstarter. Check out our other stories, and hopefully sooner rather than later we’ll have another reveal for that anthology.
Working for the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences, one sees innumerable technological wonders. But even veteran agents Braun and Books are unprepared for what the electrifying future holds…
After being ignominiously shipped out of England following their participation in the Janus affair, Braun and Books are ready to prove their worth as agents. But what starts as a simple mission in the States—intended to keep them out of trouble—suddenly turns into a scandalous and convoluted case that has connections reaching as far as Her Majesty the Queen.
Even with the help of two American agents from the Office of the Supernatural and the Metaphysical, Braun and Books have their work cut out for them as their chief suspect in a rash of nautical and aerial disasters is none other than Thomas Edison. Between the fantastic electric machines of Edison, the eccentricities of MoPO consultant Nikola Tesla, and the mysterious machinations of a new threat known only as the Maestro, they may find themselves in far worse danger than they ever have been in before…
This week Viola helps the Ministry Initiative out.
Check out the Kickstarter for the roleplaying game here.
We’re at 32% funded, and we’ve added new levels so you can find the rewards you want. Coming in the next few days, announcements about stretch goals. We’re excited about this project, but we need your help to get there.
So please share Viola and her spycraft to help spread the word! Cheers!
This is the week of the bloghop, organised by the delightful PJ Schnyder, in support of the Ministry Initiative. What is that you ask…
Galileo Games and Imagine That! Studios have teamed up to bring you an ambitious steampunk project! The Ministry Initiative is a two-part creative endeavor that will not only premiere new fiction from the steampunk world of the Ministry but also present a brand new role playing game from the makers of Bulldogs! and the ENnie Award winning game Shelter in Place. Thrill to the tales in Ministry Protocol anthology, or join in as an Agent in The Ministry Initiative RPG.
Find out more about this endeavor and support the Kickstarter here: http://bit.ly/ministry-initiative
Everyone on the bloghop is giving away something. Those in the Ministry Protocol, the new anthology we are Kickstarting, are giving away the stories that they are including in the series. Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine, will be giving away their story…the one that reveals the founding of the Ministry.
Yes, that story.
If you want to be one of the first to read this brand new story then enter the rafflecopter below, and don’t forget to hop on over to all the other neat stops on the tour, to win more cool, neat things…

It’s all hands to the pump here at the Ministry. Everything we have is pouring into the Ministry Initiative, so we can bring some amazing new stories and a roleplaying game into the world.
So, we’ve had to cut back on some things—like the budget for new recruits. You may not know this about the Ministry, but we are rife with cats. Mr Books from the Archives has one at home, Archimedes I believe his name is. Miss Shillingworth has it turns out quite a few.
So time to see if they can be put to work. Now, naturally work is not the expected environment for our feline friends, however there are a couple that seem to have an aptitude for spycraft. We’re putting them through their paces in the next few weeks, and we reckoned on sharing their progress.
This fine young chap is Sebastian. A good solid British name…but apparently he is actually from Siberia. Still, needs must.
We’ll keep you informed on the cat training programme here at the Ministry as it progresses. For now, please share Sebastian’s progress on your social media channels. It turns out that cats are remarkably vain…whoever knew that?!
