So, the voting’s nearly over in the Steampunk Chronicle’s Readers’ Choice Awards. No matter what the result I am beyond thrilled that my novella, “Wanted: One Scoundrel”, is up for Best Short Story. Oh my corsets and clockworks! It is rubbing shoulders with an awesome collection of talent. There is still time to squeeze in a vote or two … but even if you don’t want to vote (which is completely fair enough) you’ll brighten your life by checking out some of the nominees … favourite steampunk personas, clothes (these are amazing! hold onto your credit cards), music and more.
