I’m one of the Lolitas here at Steamed, which is a blog about writing Steampunk fiction (and Steampunk in general), run by a group of Steampunk authors. I write about Steampunk faeries. Innocent Darkness: A Steampunk Fairytale comes out from Flux in 2012.
I fell in love with Steampunk long ago, but I didn’t know it had a name until a few years ago. I discovered the clothes, the music, and of course, the books! If you still have no idea what Steampunk is, I have an explanation here.
I never set out to be a blogger, per say, but when I group of writers formed Steamed I jumped on board. Somehow I’ve managed to become the defacto blog mistress for Steamed, which just celebrated its second birthday. I book all of our Thursday special guests, coordinate our blog events like Steampunkapalooza, a giant Steampunk blog party that happens every April, and I’m also the Monday blogger. (Today I’m blogging about putting together Steampunk outfits). I also run an occasional feature called “Book Monday” where I review (mostly) Steampunk books that I absolutly love and think you might love, too. Because Steamed is run by authors we’re book heavy and we have a ton of posts on writing Steampunk, interviews with authors, and we tend to blab about our favorite books, but we also feature artists, musicians, and jewelry makers, and talk a lot about cute Steampunk clothes (I write Steampunk for the hats and tiaras.)
Thanks again to the Armchair BEA team for organizing this great event. I look forward to getting to know everyone and I hope you come back and visit soon.
