"The Ministry Initiative" Kickstarter Blog Hop, Plus Steampunk Romance Giveaway



The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences authors Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris, in conjunction with Galileo Games, are developing an exciting new Kickstarter project:
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. Find out more about this endeavor and support the Kickstarter here.



The Galaxy Express is part of the Ministry Initiative Kickstarter Blog Hop (May 22-29) to help spread the word about this project. (To learn more about the authors, see my interview with them.)
