Soulless Special Edition Extras ~ Deleted Scenes

I do apologize, Gentle Reader, but it seems that the special editions of Soulless in hardcover are delayed. Subterranean now estimated March 16th. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about it, would that there were. The hard cover has been a while in coming, six years or more, so I hope it’s not too bad to wait a few more weeks? In recompense, I give you some deleted bits from my first book from way back when.

Please be aware that deleted scenes may and often do contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

Alexia’s Father’s Journal
Ivy had always been faintly cheered by the fact that should a marriage bed ever be in her future, she could go to Alexia for an explanation of what might occur there. Sadly for Miss Hisselpenny, such an explanation was likely to contain concepts that would shock the most experienced whore down dockside, let alone a gently bred lady. Mr. Tarabotti had had very exotic interests indeed, and Alexia hadn’t the experience to provide any kind of filter.

Merin of Read and Reviewed said of Soulless:
“All in all, I found Soulless to be completely delightful in every way. It had an interesting story, a unique paranormal world, and two very head strong and stubborn characters.”

Quote of the Day:
