VampAngel made a Blameless Countdown Widget!
I liked it so much I updated my webpage with it.
I am delighted to announce, Gentle Reader, that yesterday I completed the (very) rough draft of Heartless, Parasol Protectorate Book the Forth. Such a lovely sensation, typing “The End.” Of course, now I have the many read throughs, and some serious editing. Go author beast go, rah rah rah!
Today I thought I’d experiment with a new blog idea. I keep track of a kind of brainstorming storyboard of images for each character I write into the Parasol Protectorate Universe, and I thought you might like a peek into my head where some of them are concerned. I’m going to post them in separate blog entries with none of the usual updates, parasol photos, or Daily Dose so that I can set up a permalink to my website. I hope you all enjoy it and that I can do it well.
I’m also considering setting up a never ending interview on the website. Taking down all the links to the various interviews all about the web except the audio and video ones) and putting in links to the collected answers as I’ve put them together. Would that be better, do you think?
Ticket to Anywhere says, “First off, I need to ask myself a very important question….why oh why did it take me so long to read Soulless by Gail Carriger? Seriously….why?”
SPOILER ALERT! Changeless blurb gives away ending of Soulless. From genre reviews, “There’s lots to enjoy with this series – it has a wonderful flippant sense of humour, lively characters and some neatly paced action. It also makes for a nice blend of steampunk and the supernatural, in an alternate-history Victorian England. As a result, it has some very funky inventions!”
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.
Heartless: First Draft done! Final draft due Nov 1.
Super Secret Project F: Under revision. Updated proposal delayed.
CAKE in Space: Trunked.

Short story turned in. The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance 2 available for preorder.
