As you know, if you stop by here on Wednesdays, today is all about the hubs and his photos, but today is also his birthday! I won’t rat out his age, but he is older than I am. Just saying…

So the hubs’ scenic route isn’t just about the landscapes, though you’ve seen how awesome he is with landscapes if you check out my landing page or other images I’ve posted here. But he also rocks the photography world with his faces. And since it’s also Christmas, I wanted to direct you to his Christmas faces and photos. But if you browse around his collections, you’ll see some really fun close-ups of people.

He started getting interested in steampunk because I wrote a steampunk/science fiction romance mash up called Tangled in Time and then had to explain it to him. When his right eye quit twitching, he went hunting and boy, did he find. Here’s his first Steampunk collection. And here’s the second.

I had so much fun with Tangled in Time, that I continued my mashing up into Steamrolled. And I also wrote a short story that can be found in my Project Enterprise: The Short Stories. Even better, despite the all the evidence that I’m bat crap crazy, the hubs still loves me and my books. Ain’t that grand?

Looking at that guy’s face, I could totally believe he’s Santa. What about you? Still believe? Know what Steampunk is? Have you read any? Seen any movies or TV? (Hint: Warehouse 13 is very Steampunk.) Want to wish the hubs best wishes on his painful, er, happy day?

All comments are entered into my monthly drawing for a $10 AnaBanana gift card. No Steampunk, but there are some Zombie zoaps. Very fun. Winner is announced the first blog post of the month.

    Happy Birthday to Hubs! I love the steampunk Santa. That is so cool that he searced stuff out after your explanation. Your description of his eye twitch is hilarious! My husband just asks me in what chapter I kill him off. LOL.

      LOLOL! My hubs has been known to ask if “I killed him yet in this book.” I swear he thinks he “dies” in all my books. His body count isn’t nearly that high. LOL! I will pass on the good wishes! He is pretty cool about getting or hunting photographs of stuff related to my books. So far the birthday is not going that well. He just lost a cap to his tooth, poor guy!

        Poor guy! I say he should continue the celebration for as long as necessary to get in a good 24 hours of good birthday time.
