Let's Talk About Steampunk
The sub-genre of steampunk has been growing in favor with mainstream fantasy, romance, and science-fiction fans. What I love about reading steampunk books is that the worlds seem much more inclusive than a plain Victorian historical. There is more room for racial diversity and women can be scientific, mathematical, inventors and more.
But, there are still many readers who don't know where to start when it comes to steampunk, even if they are open to reading books that fall under the sub-genre. To that end, I thought that I could comb through the books that I have read that are, or even marginally involve steampunk, gaslamp, gaslight or alternative Victorian themes.
Doing a regular feature that has several books and an abbreviated review for each book, would expose my readers to some of the different steampunk books out there. Hopefully, some will come to love steampunk as much as I do. Or if they are already in love, will suggest new reading material.
So, check out the first post at Steampunk Spectrum(1) featuring:
Phoenix Rising (Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences #1) by Philippa Ballantine and Tee Morris
God Save The Queen by Kate Locke
Broken Promises by J.K. Coi

I'm a writer, aspiring to that higher plane of becoming a published author. I love books in all their forms, be it electronic or print (though obviously, there is nothing like the texture of a book in my hands!). I want to share that love and meet others who feel the same.
