Out and About

For your viewing pleasure, here are a couple of red-hot bookish links I've come across lately. Enjoy!

~ The Book Smugglers have kicked off their Steampunk Week with some very fun things. And like everything else those two marvy girls do, it's in-depth and just frickin' hilarious. New to the whole Steampunk craze? Then this is the event for you my friend. Strap on some goggles and see what all the fuss is about.
~ As long as we're on the on the subject, take a look at this new cover for Gail Carriger's third Alexia Tarabotti novel titled Blameless. Soulless was just pure Victorian-Vampire fun and I am still anticipating reading Changeless, but for now, I'm in serious love with this wine-colored, shadowy London.

~ Leave it to Katiebabs at Babbling About Books, and More! to write one of the best posts on The Respect Entitled Between a Reader and an Author in the wake of some less than professional conduct on a particular author's part. It's a thinker.

~ And just because I have many similar feelings on the matter, be sure not to miss out on Adele's - that would be the Persnickety Snark to you - very succinctly put thoughts on Virtual Book Tours. Yes and yes.

Today around the blogosphere I've seen a bunch of posts with a video showing how that cover for Blameless was made. It was pretty cool to see.
