Ministry Protocol Cover Is Revealed Plus Giveaway!

Standard

The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences novels are a multi-award winning steampunk series, which tells the story of the government agency committed to keeping citizens safe from the strange, the unusual, and the bizarre.

In a very successful Kickstarter in July, the Ministry Initiative was funded, allowing the creation of both a roleplaying game and a brand new anthology.

Ministry Protocol: Thrilling Tales from the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences is a collection of short stories that will take readers across the Empire and all over the world, revealing new facets of familiar characters and introducing new agents, allies, and enemies from the Ministry’s colourful history.

The authors of this globe-spanning anthology include Delilah S. Dawson, Leanna Renee Hieber, Alex White, Jared Axelrod, Tiffany Trent, Peter Woodworth, Jack Mangan, JR Blackwell, Dan Rabarts, Lauren Harris, Karina Cooper, and Glenn Freund from The League of S.T.E.A.M.

And one of the Ministry’s creators, Tee Morris, presents the origin story of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences itself.

Look for the ebook coming in August, with signed print editions to follow.

Feast your eyes on the cover art from the Ministry renaissance man, Alex White, and spread the word about the anthology by entering the giveaway.

The Ministry Initiative Blog Hop and Giveaway

I’m very excited to be part of The Ministry Initiative Blog Hop!

A little over a year ago, I discovered The Janus Affair by Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine and my journey into the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences (MOPO) world began. This first novel had me hooked and eager for more.  Yet it was their second novel, Phoenix Rising, that catapulted Agent Eliza Braun and Archivist Agent Wellington Books  into two of my favorite characters ever.  These books are amazingly fun and well-crafted steampunk adventures.  In addition to the novels, Morris and Ballantine have published an entire host of short stories to keep fans  patient while we wait for the third title in the series, Dawn’s Early Light, to be released in 2014.  If you aren’t already avid readers of Morris and Ballantine, check out The Janus Affair.  You won’t be disappointed.

But what is the Ministry Initiative, anyway?

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.
