The Ministry Kickstarter Blog Hop...and Giveaway!


I've joined the Ministry Initiative Kickstarter Blog Hop.  If you've been around for a while you know how much I love Philippa Ballantine's and Tee Morris's works.   And the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences is no different.  I love the creation of the agents.  The diverse differences yet the way they compliment each other so beautifully.  And of course the steampunk action world they work in.

This hop is to share with you a few things coming out way in this world Tee and Pip have created.

First...
   The Ministry Initiative Role-playing game!  Yes!  You can be an agent for the Ministry as well.

Second...
   The Ministry Protocal Anthology, featuring lots of great steampunk authors.

Learn more:
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.

Oh I would have participated in the hop if I knew! I don't do RPG but I think this is one I would enjoy.

Oh and you have me drooling over Dawn's Early Light. Love this series.

Tim said...

I have been listening to Tee Morris podcast for years, but have never read his books. The most I've read is his Aladdin short story. Isn't that a shame?

Barbara E. said...

I have both of the available books but haven't had a chance to read them. I've enjoyed books by both authors before and I'm looking forward to reading their collaborative efforts, especially since they're steampunk. I just love me some steampunk. :D

I just can't wait for the third book to come out. i was so scared when the second came and there were no news about the third. I loved Phoenix Rising, but Janus was just extraordinary. :)
