Gail’s Daily Dose
Your Infusion of Cute:
60’s pea-coat with knit bow detail.

DSquared Fall/Winter runway shows big chunky knit scarves pinned closed with broaches and oversized beret hats.

Not a lot of knitwear elsewhere. Burberry had a few cowl scarf loops.
Your Tisane of Smart:
English claiming Haggis.

Your Writerly Tinctures:
How to choose a pen name.

CAKE in Space: With agent.
Soulless: “Deliciously, vampiricly satiric, a tremdendously clever, sexy read.” ~ Karen Moning, New York Times Best Selling Author
Changeless: Working on copyedit. Release date currently April 2010.
