Dear Lord Akeldama: The 2011 Edition, Part Three

More from Lord Akeldama!

Nina asks:
Who’s your favorite shoe designer?
Oh, what a delightful question! Right now I am most enamored of that charming Mr. McQueen fellow, but this is subject to change without notice (as is often the case with fashion).

Antonia asks:
Which great actor/actress would you have turned into a vampire if you had the chance?
Oh dear, there are so very many sweet young things to choose from. These days I find myself thinking in terms of the benefits to posterity. I’m getting soft in my old age. Not an actor per-say, but what world couldn’t use more of that charming gentleman, Mr. Oscar Wilde?

Llehn asks:
What attire would you never be caught dead in (um, no pun intended)
Darling I will never understand the propensity for all black, it’s terribly terribly depressing. And poly-fleece, such a gauche modern affectation, I can hardly even speak of such an abomination.

Fredamans asks:
Of all the books and trinkets you have appeared on, which is your favorite and why?
I would refrain from pointing this out, under most ordinary circumstances, but you did ask. My creator has been most remiss in not insisting that I be on the cover of any of her books. Until that time, I do not have a favorite.

Gail’s Daily Dose
Your Infusion of Cute:
Runway Daily has some adorable retro inspired dresses all under $100. I think you could also take inspiration from these and find some great thrift store dresses shorten the shirts and remove sleeves and get something similar.
Your Tisane of Smart:
Steampunk Octopus
Your Writerly Tinctures:
A cute little story about the power of social media

Nightlife Books says, “Finally I have to say that this is the first novel I have read that has made me prefer werewolves over vampires, and that is a rather hard thing to accomplish. Well done Ms. Carriger.

Even bigger SPOILER ALERT! Really, DON’T READ THE BLURB ON AMAZON if you haven’t read the other books first.
Available for preorder on Amazon and yet again with the SPOILER ALERT.

Quote of the Day:
“The only way a woman can ever reform a man is by boring him so completely that he loses all possible interest in life.”
~ Oscar Wilde
