Nestled in the mountains of Northern California, Olivia M. Grey lives in the cobwebbed corners of her dark mind writing paranormal romance with a Steampunk twist. She dreams of the dark streets of London and the decadent deeds that occur after sunset. As an author of Steamy Steampunk, as well as a poet, blogger, podcaster, and speaker, Olivia focuses both her poetry and prose on alternative relationship lifestyles and deliciously dark matters of the heart and soul. Her work has been published in various anthologies and magazines like Stories in the Ether, Steampunk Adventures, SNM Horror Magazine and How The West Was Wicked.
Her premiere Steampunk BDSM erotica novel, Avalon Revisited, is an Amazon.com Gothic Romance bestseller. She also currently has two other titles available: The Zombies of Mesmer, a YA Steampunk Romance, Caught in the Cogs: An Eclectic Collection of short stories, love poetry, and relationship essays.
Ms. Grey, now a cover model for Gearhearts Steampunk Glamour Revue (above), has seen quite the upswing in popularity over the past few years. Her poem “New York Rain” not only won an award for best poem, but it also made the Bar None Group’s Hall of Fame. Her short story “Dust on the Davenport,” written for Tales of the Archives, as well as her bestselling Steamy Steampunk novel Avalon Revisited both won the 2012 Steampunk Chronicle’s Reader’s Choice Award for best short story and best novel, respectively. Olivia was voted “Muse of the Fair” at the 2011 Steampunk World’s Fair and has enjoyed being a special literary guest at Steampunk Conventions, like Clockwork Con, Aetherfest, HRM Steampunk Symposium, Florida Steampunk Exhibition East, among many others.
Ms. Grey dons a tight corset, fluffy bustle, and a teeny-tiny top hat for fantasy and sex-positive conventions where she presents controversial topics, interacts with fans, and participates on panels discussing fiction, writing, steampunk, mental illness and emotional insecurities, sexual health and safety, and relationship styles and tools, just to name a few. She loves to host tea parties, and she runs a delightful game of charades, Victorian style.

A quick browse around the net says the answer is almost any price but being real I guess it depends on the uniqueness of the decoration and how many you want to sell and where you sell them. $50 to $150 seem to be the range and I am…"
It has been suggested that I should sell my hats. The problem is that I have absolutely no idea what to charge for them. The hats themselves are costume hats and the embellishments on them I had either made or purchased at retail. So my questions are, hypothetically speaking, if you were in the market for a hat such as these, how much would you be willing to pay for them? Basically, based off of what I do, what would you all consider to be fair market value for them?Help!See More
I have just added a post to my blog at Net Advance Retro which might be of interest to some of you. It concerns the work of the Victorian artist/engineer J. Nasmyth, who used plaster models to make astonishingly life-like photographs of landscapes on the moon.See More
