Readergirlz Outreach On!

The readergirlz outreach program is officially under way. The first video inviting girlz to request kits is up.

The second video–the tutorial–is finished as is the pdf pattern and instructions. As usual, I want to proof them another thirty-nine times before handing them over.

Making the tutorial showed me why there are studios and professional equipment. My little camera and I have limitations! With that in mind, it’s all right. I think it will serve its purpose.

Can you think of a teen girl who would enjoy chatting about books and learning to stitch a bookmark? Send her to the readergirlz.

This month’s book is Leviathan, by Scott Westerfeld. It’s categorized as steampunk. “What’s steampunk,” you ask? According to Wikipedia, it’s “a sub-genre of science fiction and speculative fiction, frequently featuring elements of fantasy, that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s.”

The readergirlz offer us some views into the steampunk world. I guess I’ll be learning something new this month, too!

Huh…I wonder if anyone’s doing steampunk embroidery?
