Steamed! is turning 1!

To celebrate our birthday and to let you all know how much we appreciate you making us a success, the Lolitas of Steamed! thought we’d do something special for the month of April.

We call it “Steampunkapalooza.”

Hold on to your fishnets! For the entire month of April we will be bringing you special guests, prizes, contests, and more. We have some stellar things lined up for you this month, including some stuff I can’t announce yet.

We’re kicking the whole she-bang off April 1st with author Gail Carriger who will not only be answering all our pesky questions but will be giving away a copy of her new book Changless which releases tomorrow, March 30, 2010.

Tune in all of April for prizes, special guests, and more!

A special thanks to the fab Marsha, who designed my birthday graphic, who made our stellar flier.

The  crazy peeps over at The National Short Story of Romance Month have declared today “National Steampunk Appreciation Day.”


Well, um, it’s my birthday, and they’re cool like that.

So — let that steampunker in your life know that you appreciate them (brass flowers maybe?) Go buy that pair of boots you’ve been eying. Listen to Abney Park. Wear full Steampunk regalia while picking your kids up from school (or grocery shopping) — or whatever floats your boat. (Please send pics if you dress up, lol.)

Oh, I do have to share what the fab Marsha made for my birthday, because it’s just so gosh darn beautiful

  I won a fantastic corset from the fabulous Dracula Clothing for a blog post I did a while back! It arrived the other day and let me say they were so quick at getting it shipped(from overseas) no less! It arrived nicely packaged inside a heavy zipper pouch and in perfect condition! I have nothing, but good things to say about Dracula Clothing and it’s owner, he is a delight as well! I highly recommend them for all your corset needs! They have a wide variety for the neo-victorian, goth or steampunker and they have some other lovely clothing as well! My corset isn’t laced as tight as it should in the picture I took, but since I was lacing it up myself I hope you will forgive me! So to sum it all up Dracula Clothing=awesome and I am so happy with my new corset! It feels amazing on too!  ~Elizabeth

Library Journal put together a list of their top twenty Steampunk books. The great thing about the list is that it’s divided into two parts — “old” and “new.” The “old” list included H.G. Wells and Tim Powers and the “new” list includes Gail Carriger, Cherrie Priest, and The League of Extraordinary Gentleman.

Obviously, on such a short list, not everyone would be included. Who do you think this list is missing–on either list–and why?

It’s been awhile since I’ve held a giveaway. So, one lucky poster will win a tiara, to be announced Saturday.

It’s a contest for the greatest book of 2009 with 64 books total in 8 categories and everyone votes in various rounds until only one winner remains. Voters have the chance to win many great prizes including an iPad. Another Steampunk fave of 2009, Soulless is up in the Urban Fantasy category. There are a lot of great books fighting for the title and I with everyone, especially Lolita Leanna, all the best.
