I am so so sorry about not having the winners from the gadget contest yet. The post office ate the prizes Think Geek sent me to award to you all. Given this, I wanted to wait until I have the prizes in my hands before I award them. I am supposed to get the replacements this week.
Meanwhile, this weekend I spoke at the Gaslight Gathering on Saturday and had an amazing time. I’d never been to a Steampunk Convention before.
I was on some great panels with people like Nancy Holder, James Blaylock, David Lee Summers, and Scott Farrell. We got into some great discussions about young adult books, paranormal steampunk, and writing.
It was well organized and Missy loved the mermaid and watching the Victorian swimsuit contest. There were so many wonderful costumes and I made many wonderful people (Like Tim Powers). I even met a few people who were fans of this blog.
I’d love to give a shout out to a great book that just released!
Look at all the great stories!
