Yes, we have the winner of the Steampunk Romance Contest! Adrienne Kress, contributing author to Corsets and Clockwork, has chosen Amelia’s Oil by Scylla as the first place winner, and “Ticking Fire” by R.J. Hathaway as the runner up!
Of the finalist entries, Adrienne said, “This was a really difficult choice for me, and I read the entries numerous times. I must say, the quality of writing in these entries is wonderful. I’m very honoured to have been asked to be a part of this experience and I just want to tell all the finalists, ‘Well done,’ and that I hope they continue with their writing because they are darn good at it.”
And now, the superawesomeprizes stuff: Scylla will receive a copy of Corsets and Clockwork, as well as an awesome steampunk device of her choosing (either a monocle or a compass) and R.J. will be receiving a Figment tote and stickers.
Congratulations, Scylla and R.J, and many thanks to those who participated!
