Writing by Hand Opera Singers and Other Internet Failures

My characters are currently swanning about Europe in Book the Third.

No, I’m not going to tell you more.

Except that there are opera singers involved and I have been derailed for most of the afternoon by trying to come up with a suitably pompous mode of address for an opera singer. Lady Such-and-such doesn’t work.

I rather like Donna So-and-so, for its Italian leanings, but it is still not quite what I am after. My Daniel Deronda DVD, possibly useful under these circumstances, has gone missing. Adelina Patii came up in several searches, now there’s a wonderful name (and coincidentally the first name is shared by my new eyebrow specialist). This is where the internet fails me, Gentle Reader, when I am simply not quite sure what I want it to give me. I suspect I shall have to consult the hive mind.

In other news my first podcast interview is up and available. The lovely Chris Fisher interviewed me and it’s graciously hosted by Steampod! Weee!

Your Infusion of Cute:
What happened to the days when you could buy cute little suits with matching hats? I never lived those days, but I miss them anyway.

Your Tisane of Smart:
New book on my radar. Knitting and Tea! What a wonderful title.
Your Writerly Tinctures:
Dorchester Publishing Editor Leah Hultenschmidt writes in her blog, Romantic Reads, about a Marketing Timeline great basic advice. On a side not she says Soulless sounds like “Mary Poppins meets The Golden Compass meets Underworld” which is oddly accurate.

CAKE in Space: Finished Draft 2.
Soulless: Awaiting ARC distribution.
Steampunk short: I should probably do something with this.
Changeless: Gone poof. Starting to gather corrections.
