Brought to you by “Absinthe Heroes”!
You know, Steampunk grows and thrives because of the creators who take the risks of putting time and energy into making, of all things, that strange and wonderful invention, Steampunk. That’s, as the Victorians might have put it, a right bricky move – which is to say, it takes a lot of courage and heart. And for a lot of us, the holidays are make-and-break for our small businesses.
So we declare the Monday after Black Friday – this year, that’s November 30th – to be Steampunk Monday! And we have a simple thing to ask of you:
On Steampunk Monday, consider doing some of your gift and holiday shopping with Steampunk creators, artisans, performers, and events. Buy the albums of the bands you love, get tickets to the shows you enjoy, help your favorite merchants grow and thrive!
Here’s how we’ll do our part: Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Steampunk Monday” (if your email doesn’t have that title, it likely won’t be read!) Include a link to your website/somewhere I can see your work, and I’ll pick my nine favorites and schedule them to be posted to the 89,000 folk of www.Facebook.com/steampunkworldsfair, about every two hours, for all of Steampunk Monday – starting at 12:01 a.m. and ending at 11:59 p.m.
And we’ll run a discount! You can get 10% off regular (not Luminary) VIP tickets at our ticket page with promo code “steampunkmonday. And if you choose to support our Kickstarter, we’ll add an extra title for you – free!
How else might you participate?
Well, consider running a Steampunk Monday discount, if you want! Consider posting Steampunk creators to your social media! And, if you want, just take a moment to thank your favorite Steampunk creators for helping this wild, wonderful Universe take shape!
Very truly yours,
Jeff Mach Events
