  1. Omy, steampunk erotica... I should probably try to do this workshop. But... hey, where's my time machine?

  2. Oh mercy yes, Savanna! Where is that lovely, and desperately needed bit of technology? Mmm, maybe I should take the workshop and incorporate time travel into a steam punk story... Something to consider. ~wink~

    1. Time travel seems to be a staple of many steampunk romance novels. After all, those spinning wheels and gears can move aside dimensional curtains. I got to thinking about that some and it would make sense in terms of gravitational and electrical forces.

  3. Very true, Savanna. Steampunk seems like it would be kind of an interesting genre to read. I've not read much of it, as of yet. How about you?
