SteamPink schedule



  1. Happy Steampink week! Let's see, steampunk books I've liked so far:

    Soulless by Gail Carriger
    The Affinity Bridge by George Mann

    In music:

    Abney Park

    I have Building Steam, The Clockyard, Airship Pirate, Sleep Isabella and Post Apocolaspe Punk on my playlist for my new steampunk/sfr novel.

    The necklace is to die for cool. I've found such fun steampunk jewelry out there and my sister brought me a fun bracelet this week. I have to say, steampunk is all around fun, all around cool.

  2. I have recently discovered a great steampunk book the unfortunately is only in Italian. The title is Alice nel paese della Vaporità by Francesco Dimitri.
    Another steampunk book I want to read is Chenda and the Airship Brofman by Emilie P. Bush. It sounds great!

    I tweeted:
