The Eternal Machine is Almost Here

It has certainly been a learning curve getting this book ready for publication. But I’m almost there. Meanwhile, if you are interested in reading Sample Chapters One to Six, you are welcome to take a look.

I started this novel back in 2008 and it has since been through many redrafts. It has been professionally edited at three stages of production:

Structural and Line Edits: Pete Kempshall

Copy Edit: Amanda J Spedding

It’s now going through a very slow, final proofread.

Currently available for pre-order worldwide including Amazon US   Amazon AU   Amazon UK   Barnes & Noble  Kobo US Kobo Au and Kobo UK. Trade paperback will be released 14th January, 2022.

Praise for THE ETERNAL MACHINE

Victoriana comes to Sydney in an alternative 19th Century, bringing dark Dickensian factories and even darker souls. Mages too, practising heart magic and skin magic, along with shapeshifters, demons and automata. Mix in a mad scientist, a touch of romance and a plot to keep you guessing—wild! What’s not to love? Highly recommended.

~Richard Harland, Author of Worldshaker, Liberator, Song of the Slums and more.

…nicely sensory, gritty, darkly colourful… an apparently real world from the first sentences, and I very soon got caught up in it… the novel’s tone, characters, and themes make it apparent that Ryles takes the genre as seriously as the best steampunk writers take it…

~James P Blaylock – author of Homunculus, Lord Kelvin’s Machine, River’s Edge, and a whole lot more.
