music: Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me Podcast
I got distracted yesterday, Gentle Reader. It’s not often I have itnernet time to play on the weekends. I had an unexpected free Sunday so I filled it with all things near and dear to my heart: BBC Costume dramas (I rewatched the Buccaneers), tea, and roaming about the fashion blogs. In consequence I present you with some vintage fashion images that appealed to me, just because.
In other news, my agent kindly sent me along a digital version of the Blameless spread in the Orbit catalog. Here it is!
For those interested in the ins and outs of the publishing world, this is the catalog that the Hachette sales team will use to sell book orders to chain and independent bookstores.

Why Writer Beware Doesn’t Provide Publisher Recommendations (Plus Some Advice)
An effusive review from a lady who did no want or expect to enjoy Soulless. “Still, nothing would have convinced me I would like the book, but I had to do something in the hell that is a Qantas flight home to Australia—and its cover does entice. Once I opened the book, I resented having to close it for any reason, till the end, when I really truly sighed with pleasure.”
SPOILER ALERT! Changeless blurb gives away ending of Soulless. Inside of a Dog says, “I enjoyed this romp. I loved the humor and the many descriptions. Alexia’s friend Ivy provided much of the comic relief with her absurd hats and absurd romance . . .”
Out September 1, 2010! Even bigger SPOILER ALERT! Really, DON’T READ THE BLURB ON AMAZON if you haven’t read the other books first.
