|Nick Valentino & Elizabeth Darvill|
The festival was small but busy. I met a lot of wonderful people and gained a lot of new readers. I shared a booth with two Steampunk authors, Nick Valentino and Elizabeth Darvill both dressed in their incredible costumes. If you haven't read any Steampunk you really ought to try it. It's a fun genre to read. You travel to Victorian times with lots of gadgets operating on steam and clockwork. Nick writes adventure novels. Check out Thomas Riley. Be forewarned if you read Elizabeth's books. Some of them put a little extra steam in the Steampunk. She writes paranormal romance novels among other things.
