It's so fantastic to see all the art and costumes that have been posted in here. I am excited that this group has gotten as large as it has. We currently have 133 members and 166 watchers.
[update]: The game has been taken offline as part of 's contract with CBS (This to me says exciting possibilities!) She says keep your eyes peeled for a new game.
I've been asked by a few people to spread the word about some steampunk-related things outside of the internet; take a look if you wish!
Salt City Steamfest
This is the first ever Steampunk convention held in Salt Lake City, Utah. It will be held at the Red Lion Hotel on July 27 - 28, 2012. The ticket price for the event is $17 prereg, $20 at door.
There is an artist's alley and there is also a contest for the convention's mascot. Both are still accepting submissions, if I am correct.
For those unable to go to the event but still wish to advertise their products, there is an alternative: $25 to have space in the ad book for the convention. Send a note to if you are interested in getting this special offer.
From the website: Join local Steampunkians as we gather to learn the basics of Steampunk, how to create your own goggles, an afternoon tea, and even how to waltz!

"I have just completed work, artwork, on a recent project called Dhampyr Heritage. This book is of gaslight or edwardian genres. I am trying to put out there that the book will be coming out in May."
The site's info for the book:
It is 1909.
Four years ago, Gideon's best friend - Christian - died. It was not a pleasant death. Gideon was the only witness.
Gideon was sent to Portugal - to his grandmother's home - to be safe.
But the danger has followed him, and he is not the only one in danger. So, it is time to return to England - for Gideon to face his family, Christian's family, and the truth of Christian's death.
However, Christian does not just haunt Gideon's memories, he's flesh and bone - and still 12 years old - a vampyr.
And then, there is Zola, a new friend, with her smile and strange words, whose guardian just may be the one responsible for Christian's current existence.
