Visits Afoot, Bug Love, and Trixy Identities

Meanwhile, Gentle Reader, I have been spending quality time recovering from flu, and kindly spreading it about to everyone I know. Share the bug. This has had the delightful effect of making me feel both exhausted and guilty. My cat has taken to licking the review ARCs. Why? And, to top it off my real identity seems to be slipping slowly away from me, terribly careless, I know. But these identity things are quite trixy.

Gail’s Daily Dose
Your Infusion of Cute:
The most amazing chocolates. I tried the “Passion” a white chocolate passion fruit puree beneath smooth dark chocolate ganache dressed in white chocolate. It was so good I nearly cried, it reminded me of the fresh passion fruit juice I drank in Peru. A taste that brings back good memories – what more could a girl ask for? They also offer an Earl Grey tea flavor.

Your Tisane of Smart:
How the Ancient Romans dealt with vampires. This is particularly interesting for me, as in Alexia’s universe the Ancient Roman Empire was vampire derived.

Vampires in other cultures are always fun to research. Someday I’m going to write a story about pishtacos, New World vampires that suck fat instead of blood.

Your Writerly Tinctures:
You’re only as good as your second novel

CAKE in Space: Next on the agenda – draft 2.
Soulless: Completed proofs, awaiting ARCs.
Changeless: Gone poof.
Steampunk short: 1 more read through, then of to Beta-city sweetheart

Quote of the Day:
“It almost makes me want to go to Britain, sit down for a cup of tea with a crumpet on the side, and read this book. That…and I just like saying the word crumpet, it’s an awesome word.”
~ PopinFresh on Blogspot at Popin’s Lair giving my cover a shout out. It is so nice to know an independent party likes the cover! (And to be intimately associated with crumpets. Mmm, crumpets.)
