Steampunk Fiction and Fashion

Just taking a break from editing. 30 pages down. 150 to go. Thought I would post some photos of Victorian fashion because I think the clothes of that era are so beautiful. No wonder Steam Punk Fiction is so appealing. YA Fantasy Guide recently posted an interiew by Lia Habel, author of Dearly, Departed where Lia explains steampunk fiction. 

Steam punk fiction is a literary genre that takes place in the Victorian era or other world similar to the Victorian era. It usually includes steam driven machinery. It can include the supernatural as well. 

I love this quote though... 
“Steampunk is what happens when goths discover brown.” – Jess Nevins

Here is a link to some Steampunk Fiction you can read for free.

Below is some Victoria fashion for the ladies to fantasize about.
