Soulless Hardcover Delayed Shipping ~ Some Parasol Protectorate Extras for You!

Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered the limited edition of Soulless in hardcover from Subterranean Press. You are the bee’s knees, or should I say ladybug’s spots? I do hope you like it.

Unfortunately, there have been some issues with production and Subterranean has informed me shipping is delayed about 2 weeks due to “paper milling.” I will let you know more when I do.

Meanwhile, here’s some collected background rabbit holes for you to fall into…

Airship Ambassador reviews Soulless for Steampunk Hands 2016:
“I found the book to be a fun, witty, and pleasantly sarcastic read with a strong, smart, and resourceful lead character. Mystery, adventure, and world on the supernatural side of steampunk.”

{Gail’s monthly read along for March is Sorcery & Cecelia: Or, The Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Patricia C. Wrede, Caroline Stevermer.}

Book News:
Evie from Just Another Belle says of Soulless:
“This book was ridiculous in the best possible way.  I loved the writing, the story, the setting, the characters- just all of it. More than once I wished I could interact with the characters in real life.This book made me happy. Giddy, even.  There’s something entirely too rare about a book constantly making me smile.”

Quote of the Day:
“A friend had commented once that Neal had a gift for making someone want to punch him just for saying hello.”
~ Tamora Pierce, Squire: Book 3 of the Protector of the Small Quartet

    Gail, Am I missing something? I love reading all your novels/novellas/short stories. Does Sophronia show up in The Parasol Protectorate at all? Thank you!
