So I know I've kept you all waiting...I've been dying to announce the winners for Let's Get Steamy, but I was having a bit of difficulty with my computer...the wi-fi chip died! So, like the crazy computer nerd I am I ran right out to Best Buy and cried at them to fix it for
First of all I would like to thank all of the participants in Let's Get Steamy! From the artist spotlights to the guest posts, I couldn't have done this without your contributions and thoughts! I am so thrilled that I had a chance to talk to you all and I look forward to keeping up with you all at various Cons and events!

Okay, I know you're all just freaking out about who won what, but I'm going to take a moment to show ALL of the prizes for the GRAND PRIZE GIVEAWAY of Let's Get Steamy! Remember, that for every comment on a non-giveaway related post counted as an entry into the giveaway...The majority of the prizes were kept under wraps to surprise the winner so I am hoping that you all get uber excited for this. Though I only got to one movie review, there is a lot more out there in the Steampunk genre so I am giving the GPW THREE Steampunk DVD's
Wild Wild West 
(Though hailed as one of the worst movies of all time...I maintain that the reviewers just didn't understand Steampunk...I enjoyed it and I think that it has lots of cool Steam elements that should be celebrated)
...A kick-ass, girl power Steam movie...a tad confusing...but I loved it
 That's right, the award winning Oscar-show-stealer that not many people have seen...Well, I have, and I absolutely adored it! Three cheers for Steampunk going Mainstream!!! Huzzah!!! The GPW will have to wait on their copy hasn't come out on DVD yet!

The Parasol Protectorate Series Books 1-3 by Gail Carriger
The Clockwork Century Series Books 1-3 by Cherie Priest

And last, but CERTAINLY not least...the Grand Prize winner will be gifted with some FABULOUS custom made Steampunk Clothing, Jewelery and amazing accessories by all of our Spotlighted Artists and a few more!!!
