NO not the sound my stomach makes to alert me that I’ve been at the convention ALL DAY without eating….

blurb [blɜːb]  n  a promotional description, as found on the jackets of books. [coined by Gelett Burgess (1866-1951), US humorist and illustrator]

Her Majesty’s Explorer has gotten it’s first BLURBS! and here they are:

“St. John Murphy Alexander, ‘Her Majesty’s Explorer,’ is literature’s most charming mechanical man since L. Frank Baum’s Tin Man. ” ~ Jim Barnes, Editor, Independent Publisher Magazine 

“Utterly charming!” ~ M.K. Hobsen, author of The Native Star

Thanks, Chloe and Isabella “I just finished reading Her Majesty’s Explorer to Chloe (9 years old) and Isabella (just 6). They both loved it, and both wished they could have their very own Steamduck.” ~ Captain Robert of Abney Park.
More are rolling in! I will be tweeting (@CoalCitySteam – do follow!) and posting them at the Her Majesty’s Explorer Facebook page as the reviews and blurbs come in leading up to launch.
