The Adventures of Viola Stewart series has it all:
magic and illusion
and Jack the Ripper…
Looking for something to read this Halloween?
It’s come to my attention that book scammers may be selling heavily discounted copies of my first book, Doctor Jack & Other Tales, on Amazon.
The ONLY current edition of Doctor Jack is edition 2.
Look for the title: Doctor Jack & Other Tales, with the SUBTITLE: The Adventures of Viola Stewart Journal #1 – and was published by Kraken Publishing in 2016 – available via Ingram Spark.
This original edition was originally titled: The Adventures of Viola Stewart Journal #1: Doctor Jack and Other Tales. This was my first foray into indie publishing and was published in 2015, via Createspace – which is NO MORE. This was removed when Createspace closed down.
The reviews are genuine – left over from the first edition. Amazon won’t transfer them to the second edition.
I’ve found it still selling on Amazon under the original title, supposedly available from CREATESPACE, with 1 left in stock.
DO NOT buy this copy.
This was removed from sale. I get NO ROYALTY PAYMENTS from this copy. I don’t know how they can supply the book when it’s been pulled from Createspace – and Creatspace DOESN’T NOT EXIST any more. Don’t get caught out.
It’s the last day of Adelaide steampunk festival. Click & Collect orders are now closed.
Looks like the technical hitch with the projector is sorted.
My talks on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s visit to Adelaide (100 years ago, this year) and Fairys/Fairy Doors should be at 12.45pm today at the main stage.
Find out about this year’s theme for the Festival.
It’s finally here!
All the steampunky goodness… and I can’t be there.
Not physically, at least.
I did my first ‘official’ live via my FB page (with Dearheart as my conspirator)
Dave leads us through the Railways Museum to see some of today's @Adelaide Steampunk Festival – You can chat to me via our Skype link at my table

I Skyped in all day to chat to readers and attendees…
Don’t forget you get an exclusive signed and numbered bookplate with each book.
Disappointed I can’t be there in person… Let me out!
I’m back today for day 2.
My first live to my page via FB!
I’m planning on doing a short live possibly Saturday and Sunday (just before 10am?) as Adelaide Steampunk Festival starts, and possilby one during set up on Friday afternoon (if I can work out how to do it on my phone).
It’ll be posted on my Karen J Carlisle FB page.
I’ll be zooming or skyping in live AT the festival from my table all weekend to chat to attendees and readers at the event. (Argh! This week has been a crash course in using computery technology stuff!)
If you’re in Adelaide (and don’t need to quarantine), I have a table (with my books, some mugs, and badges – and my Dearheart) at stall/table #8
Come along and say hi to David. He’ll be manning the table. I’ll be there virtually… If you buy a book, you’ll get an exclusive signed and numbered book plate – only available for this event!
S.M. Kemmett – The Word Tailor (and my editor) will be sharing my table – with her new book – a steampunk fantasy adventure with cryptids!
I’m also doing some ‘virtual’ talks at the event over the weekend.
You can now pre-order your own paperback copy of A Fey Tale – the second book in The Aunt Enid Mysteries. You’ll also get an exclusive signed and numbered bookplate.
Aunt Enid’s back, but something’s changed…
A deal with fairies… to solve a mystery… and prevent a war.
Fairies and magic: It’s all real!
Enid Turner is invited to a picnic in honour of the creator of the world’s most famous detective, currently on a lecture tour in Adelaide, where they are caught in a web of treachery and betrayal from the Otherworlds.
It’s up to Aunt Enid and the Protectors, with a little help from the self-appointed Fairy Hunter, to solve the mystery, return the kidnapped heir and save the humans from Otherworldly retribution. It’s now a race to save the Earth from becoming a battleground for a magical war.
