My thanks to all of you who chose to play my three little games, particularly those who took the time and effort (and bother) to enter the Podcasters Payback Contest.
With that said, here are the winners of the three Changeless Contests: (I used a random number generator to pick.)
- Podcaster Payback: Emerian
- Podcaster Payback runner up: miakodagirl
- Facebook group: Iaisha
- Twitter: Fail
(Sadly I didn’t reach my goal of 1874 followers for the third contest, so I decided to give that book as a runner up prize to one of those who entered the Podcaster Contest. That was by far the most difficult of the three to enter, and some people went to a lot of effort.)
I’m keeping the twitter contest running. When I hit 1874, depending on when that is, I’ll come up with some kind of random prize for my followers at that point.

Dan waxes poetical on the subject of free content
Only the best Sci-Fi blog compares me to one of my great heroes. “For me Gail Carriger is the Ada Lovelace of the urban steampunk romance!”
SPOILER ALERT! Amazon and Powell’s have posted Changeless cover along with blurb. Blurb gives end of Soulless.
Changeless reviews are starting up, Jawas Read, Too! has a much to say on the subject, including: “The prose has an awareness of itself that I think, in pointing out what hasn’t been addressed, remembers to include us on the outrageous journey. For a character to remind Alexia, “but what about…” it is really Carriger taking us by the hand, handing us a cup of tea and sitting us down to relax with a delicious bite before the next journey begins. There will be more, this says, but one must always take time for tea.”
Even bigger SPOILER ALERT! Really, DON’T READ THE BLURB ON AMAZONif you haven’t read the other books first.
Super Secret Project H: Submitted to agent.
Super Secret Project F: Consulted betas, good to go. Hope to write first two chapters this month. Note that number isn’t changing much. I am a bad writer beast.
CAKE in Space: Trunked for the moment.
Short article done, turned in, and VanderMeer’s have announced the table of contents.
Not-so-secret fiction short: Finished rough. (For the The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance 2.)
Quote of the Day:
From Twitter: “Always tea before assassinations.”
