We all love the Immortal Empress.  It is an awesome work of art.  It caught your eye, made you wonder what was going on with Steampunk World.  It is so cool that it will continue to be the public cover for Steampunk World.
So we knew that a backer-only exclusive cover would have to be something that was even better.
Our backers are awesome.  With thier help, this book is happening.  And this is their reward.  This cover will only be used for Kickstarter backers.  It will never be offered for retail sale.
 I will begin production of the Kickstarter eBooks tomorrow.  Print books will follow shortly thereafter;  Kickstarter rewards will be in place before public sale of Steampunk World begins;  I will update with timelines and the chance to advance order when I know I’ll be able to fulfill them.
Sarah, James, I, and all the authors wanted this to be a truly maginificent book… and seeing all thier work, I know it will be.
Thanks to our backers.
Thank you all.

We had a very nice day in Nara, the beautiful place in Japan. Dressing in a Taisyou Romance style is so enjoyable. The only problem was that people thought we were Japanese and asked to have photo with us.:P No matter, we saying ”You are welcome” all the way.  

The place (and the dressing style) is too beautful to stop my camera!!!

Did the shots all the way to Shrine. >www<

We took so many nice shots! I will post more pictures later.

p.s. Somebody ask for the kimono shop in Nara, so I put the link of the kimono shop here. You can rant kimono/yukata there, and the onwer will help you to dress on with her professional still. She can also do the hair setting to match with your kimono.

The photos are really lovely and the trip with you guys was awesome! I really enjoyed the trip! (为啥说英文!

This kind of style could work well with later-period-type steampunk!
