My characters are currently swanning about Europe in Book the Third.
No, I’m not going to tell you more.
Except that there are opera singers involved and I have been derailed for most of the afternoon by trying to come up with a suitably pompous mode of address for an opera singer. Lady Such-and-such doesn’t work.
I rather like Donna So-and-so, for its Italian leanings, but it is still not quite what I am after. My Daniel Deronda DVD, possibly useful under these circumstances, has gone missing. Adelina Patii came up in several searches, now there’s a wonderful name (and coincidentally the first name is shared by my new eyebrow specialist). This is where the internet fails me, Gentle Reader, when I am simply not quite sure what I want it to give me. I suspect I shall have to consult the hive mind.

New book on my radar. Knitting and Tea! What a wonderful title.
Your Writerly Tinctures:

CAKE in Space: Finished Draft 2.
Soulless: Awaiting ARC distribution.
Steampunk short: I should probably do something with this.
Changeless: Gone poof. Starting to gather corrections.
