@dekreel No, I’m not Jane’s sister, though she does have a sister who writes.
When I say Clocktech, I do basically mean steampunk, but it’s got a little less steam, and considerably less of the Victorian era. Inspired more by late renaissance Italy, and maritime city states. Lots of intrigue and political machinations. Not too much though, because I can’t keep more than a few plotters straight in my head.
I really like Tricia Mingerink’s Blades of Acktar series. Other favourite authors include: Jaye L. Knight, Serena Chase, K. M. Weiland, and Patrick W. Carr. Also the 27th Protector series by Laura Campbell.
