Guest of Honour – Emilie P Bush

Emilie P BushThe Steampunk Empire Symposium is pleased to announce the return of Emilie P Bush, esteemed steampunk author and an editor at the Steampunk Chronicles. 2012’s Symposium saw the Steampunk Chronicles Readers’ Choice Awards ceremony hosted by Bush, and we are more stoked than Bram Stoker to confirm that the Steampunk Chronicles and the Symposium will again partner for this event in April. She also will be running a series of writing workshops at the Symposium for an amazing steampunk short story weekend project that is open to all attendees.

Emilie P. Bush wears many hats when it comes to writing. She is a Steampunk novelist, a journalist, children’s book author, Editor in Chief for Steampunk Chronicle and a mentor to other writers as the leader of the Gwinnett County Writer’s Guild.

Her first novel, Chenda and the Airship Brofman, was an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Semi-finalist in 2010 and her follow up tale, The Gospel According to Verdu, picks up where Chenda left off – high in the skies and wild with adventure. She is currently writing the final installment in the Brofman series: The Ballad of Jason Belles. In other works her manuscript, Cryptid, was a 2013 ABNA Quarterfinalist.

Emilie’s children’s book, Her Majesty’s Explorer: a Steampunk bedtime story, is the world’s first Steampunk picture book, and recently hit #1 on Amazon’s Hot New Releases Bestseller List. Her next children’s book – Steamduck Learns to FLY! is also an Amazon.com Bestseller. Look for Elly Belle in the City of Steam, Emilie’s third book with illustrator William Kevin Petty, later this year.

Emilie P. Bush lives in Atlanta, where she is a speaker on publishing in the 21st Century and maintains the website CoalCitySteam.com.
