Discovering Steampunk: Introduction & Giveaway

It’s finally here!! I can’t even remember how long I’ve been planning this feature for, but it has been several months and I am so excited to finally be able to get it out there!

For those of you who may have been wondering what this is all about: Discovering Steampunk is a 2 week long feature here at Once Upon A Time to celebrate steampunk as a sub-genre and a fun setting for many great novels. I, personally, hadn’t really looked into steampunk before so I decided to remedy this and share my new discovery with you guys. Perhaps you’ll find out something new, discover a new book that you hadn’t heard of before, or just enjoy the steampunk-themed posts. Either way, I hope there will be something in the next couple of weeks for everybody.

What better way to start than with a giveaway? ((Lookie! I got Rafflecopter access! I’m so happy, there was much growling to be had when I used Google Forms for my last giveaway.)) I figured it would be awesome to do a giveaway that can appeal to everybody, as there are plenty of steampunk-themed books from all kinds of genres and aimed at all age groups.

The winner will be able to choose any steampunk-themed book up to the value of £5, that’s roughly $8, you can change the currency in the top right corner of Book Depository to check. This will of course be from The Book Depository so check here if you aren’t sure if they deliver to you. The book has to be steampunk-themed, if you aren’t sure, have a good browse of this list, and you will have until the end of the 2 weeks to enter so feel free to wait for my reviews if you’d like recommendations.

To enter you need to be a GFC follower ((you don’t have to be a blogger yourself, you just need a Google account 🙂 )) of this blog. The widget is in the ‘Follow Me’ section to the left, so do refresh the page if you can’t see it. Of course I’d appreciate it if you follow Discovering Steampunk over the next couple of weeks because I’ve put a lot of work into it and it’s going to be AWESOME and comments are always much loved. This giveaway will be running for the entire two weeks and will end midnight EST ((the time Rafflecopter uses, I don’t think I can change that at the moment)) on the 23rd (or 24th, if you’re picky, though I say it’s not the next day until around 3am!).

Here are just a few options you could choose from, though you aren’t limited to these choices at all if none of them appeal to you. Leave a comment and let me know which steampunk book/s you’re most interested in. Perhaps we’ll all pick up a few good recommendations.


Good luck and enjoy Discovering Steampunk!
