This is only tangential to Beyond Victoriana, but since this is steampunk-related, I’m making the announcement here as well as my personal blog.
Last week, I received word that my responsibilities at Tor.com have changed, and I will no longer be responsible for maintaining Tor.com Steampunk Facebook and Twitter feeds. I will remain, however, on-board as Tor.com’s blogger for all things steam-worthy and thensome.
I’m saddened by this news, especially since I highly enjoyed seeing both Facebook & Twitter grow exponentially since I was first given the responsibility last December. But I also know that the publishing industry is going through some belt-tightening times. It’s an understandable and ugly reality in this economy.
Nevertheless, I look forward to continuing my working relationship with Tor.com as I’m involved in the steampunk community. Beyond Victoriana, of course, isn’t going anywhere (and you can follow on Facebook too!). Additionally, I’m working on a new venture with Tor to spotlight steampunk events & announcements and am still interested in press releases for anything steampunk-related for consideration to post on Tor.com. The steampunk links will still be coming via my personal Twitter at writersyndome. Press releases and publicity outreach can be sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks, everyone, for your understanding & support through this transition.
