Writing projects and Babbage Fiction Press

Would anyone care to collaborate on a longer piece, perhaps in parallel with this year’s Tales project? Set it in New Babbage, of course; I write from the perspective of Cleanslate, each collaborator writes from the perspective of another character, and each chapter switches perspective. We rough out the plot ahead of time and then outline what each chapter is supposed to accomplish; store the pieces on a Google Drive as we create them.

No idea what the story might be about, but let me know if you’re interested and we can exchange plot ideas: If it comes out well Babbage Fiction Press can “publish” it. :)

Incidentally, if anyone is interested in getting their own Babbage novel/novelette published, BFP is an option for that too. Once we have a few titles we can sell them online and from a card table at steampunk conventions. I may set one up at the one in Waltham this weekend if anyone wants to join me.

          Bin thinkin’ a loadin’ up the old ass-cart and headin’ down ta Babbagetown again fer a look about. I hear the Broonell Hall is a right fancy place. Got a pool ‘n all, ain’t that right? Think me ‘n the family will stay there.

    Certainly sounds interesting, if there is room for urchins in the plot – and if British English is acceptable!

      If it isn’t I can always arrange for another visit from Queen Victoria.

    I would like to be included with the muster roll of usual suspects in this endeavor. There could be quite a few chapters in this tome.

    Capital idea.  I’ll ante up.

    I might poke it with a stick myself.  :)

    Deyni raises her hand from the back of the room.

    I’d like to participate too.

    I am volunteering as well. Please let me know if I can assist.

    I partcipated in something sort of similar to this in Caledon in 2007 and it was great fun.
