Hello, Blog-hoppers! Thank you for landing here, if but a moment, as you bounce around the internet scooping up information about all of us involved or in love with The Ministry Initiative. If this your first stop, then no doubt you are wondering what The Ministry Initiative exactly is. Allow me to illuminate:
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.

As you may or may not be aware, when you look up steampunk on Wikipedia, you will in fact, see my face. I have also written what is arguably the greatest steampunk graphic novel ever created, The Battle of Blood & Ink (and I will argue this point, eternally. Possibly longer if provided enough wine). So it is a matter of course that I am involved in this grand experiment, having contributed a lovely romp of a story to the planned anthology, involving my favorite things: romance, rocket-packs and bare-knuckled boxing matches.
Truly, they are three great tastes that go great together.
Since this blog-hop is done in the spirit of giving, I am willing to give away one paperback copy of The Battle of Blood & Ink, arguably the greatest steampunk graphic novel ever created, autographed both by myself and the exceptional artist of the book, one Mr. Steve Walker.
How does one achieve this delightful soon-to-be-heirloom-peice, that will be passed down through the generations as befits a work of such stature and genius? Oh, my excited turtledoves, the process could not be simpler. The book will be sent to a commenter chosen at random, provided they are in the US. All you must do is make your type seen below, perhaps with a word or too about how much you want said prize, and what you would be willing to do for it, if I was not giving it away for free out of the spirit of generosity from the deep and bountiful reserves of such stuff within my capacious heart.
And no need to stop here. There’s countless other stops on this blog-hop (well, 27), each of them worth your time even if they weren’t giving away all sorts of glories! Continue on, ye springy-stepped blog-hoppers!
