Presented by Michael Coorlim

Steampunk began as a literary genre, and the explosive growth of self-publishing has only created new opportunities to expand the market. Do you enjoy writing, and want to approach your work from a professional angle? Independent author Michael Coorlim covers the basics of the craft and business of self-publishing steampunk fiction, content marketing, patreon, and building your platform.

Michael Coorlim is the author of the Galvanic Century steampunk series, the cyberpunk Shadow Decade series, and the apocalyptic horror short story collection Grief. He’s produced two seasons of the Synesthesia Theatre audio drama podcast with Burning Brigid Media, adapting his novels Iron Horses Can’t Be Broken and Cold Reboot into full cast audio productions, and designs both computer games and tabletop roleplaying games.
