I have a story, a fantasy based murder mystery. I love the story, but need a setting. I am lost in possible worlds, and I am trying to sift through them all.
Originally it was going to be a contemporary fantasy, but now I really want it to be in a secondary world... I might try a crosshatch, but I am not sure if it will work.
The problem is with my imagination. I am having a hard time limiting the setting to what is believable to happen on earth in the present day and age. The real problem is that I really want to write a fantasy steampunk tale.
This foray outside of my usual space opera is exciting, but is creating a lot of fear in me. I have not tried to write fantasy since I was in high school. I am taking some time to develop a steampunk world and see where it goes. The idea of pure fantasy excites me.

My name is C.E. Dorsett, and I am a scifi/fantasy writer. I have written the books Shine Like Thunder and The Chain, just to name a couple. I am really a builder of worlds from the wuxia inspired, scifi setting Our Solemn Hour to the dark fantasy of Dragons of Night. My writing is influenced by writers like H. P. Lovecraft, Charlaine Harris, Alice Hoffman, Armistead Maupin, Frank Herbert, E E Doc Smith and Robert E Howard. I love to tell stories and talk with my readers.
