Gail’s Daily Dose
Your Infusion of Cute:
Fancy Man Enjoys Tea
Your Tisane of Smart:
Alice’s Tea Cup in New York city not only looks like a lovely place to visit but also has an informative (if slightly cumbersome) website with an extensive section about tea.
Your Writerly Tinctures:
All about author bios and how to market a writer. I would just like to point out that, on the basis of my bio alone, I was approached by an editor of a major house. So it’s true, write a good one, boys and girls!

CAKE in Space: With agent.
Soulless: Look, Soulless available through . . . uh, Target?
Changeless: Gone poof. Starting to gather corrections. Release date unknown.
Blameless:

Quote of the Day:
“There is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea.”
