Howdy. So today is steampunk Monday, a little known opportunity for holiday shoppers to buy products by makers and writers in the community of steampunk. We love the Victorian Era and some it its values, but blend it with future technology, imperial what ifs, offworld enterprises and loads of nefarious octopi. Not sure if it’s your game? Sound too strange? Not certain where to look for these works to see if you’ll bite?
Welcome to the list. I’ve been told as an indie author, an Amazon Author Page will do wonders. Well, maybe in the vibrant year of 2011, but then came Arab Spring (or Octopi Wall Street or something). Many of us have pages who write steamy tales, and watch as they sit vacant. But, they list our books, so what better way to get you to peer into our worlds than those pages.
But you don’t know a single author or maker? Fine. Below is a list, starting with author pages, then moving on to maker groups on Facebook and beyond.
Ready to shop? Go indie. Get at it!
AUTHOR PAGES (not necessarily in alphabetical order, but all tasty!)
