Manners & Mutiny Book Tour Events (Finishing School)

I am off on tour, Gentle Reader, for Manners & Mutiny. Normal blogging resumes when I return. You can follow my exploits on Twitter & Instagram.

(A quick note the book should be available in most larger US bookstores. If it’s not shelved, do ask them to please go in the back and open the box. It’s there, they just haven’t unpacked it.)

For those of you who know me well and read Retro Rack, I won’t be dressing to match this cover. I have yellowish skin; frankly darling, yellow is NOT a good color for me. I’m pulling out the red accessories, so expect to see a lot of red and black. What can I say? It’s my happy place.

Now, where can you see me live in said red and black? San Francisco, Saratoga Springs, Boston, and Charleston…

“We like the men and women of Boston. They have opinions about everything – some of them adverse to your own, but even in that case so well expressed that, in admiration for the rhetoric, you excuse the divergence of sentiment. We never found a half-and-half character in Boston.”
~ Around the Tea Table by T. De Witt Talmage (1875)

“But why, Jeeves? Dash it all, she’s just had nearly two months of me.”
“Yes, sir.”
“And many people consider the medium dose for an adult two days.”
~  P. G. Wodehouse (Right Ho, Jeeves)

“I can’t help but to write, I have an inner need for it. If I’m not in the middle of some literary project, I’m utterly lost, unhappy and distressed. As soon as I get started, I calm down.”
~ Kaari Utrio

Book News:
Kelly of Reading the Paranormal says of Waistcoats & Weaponry: “Another fun installment as Sophronia puts her finishing school training to good use.”

Quote of the Day:
“Patrick licked into his mouth like an old acquaintance, catching all their noises in the space between their tongues.”
~ Lia Cooper, The Duality Paradigm
(I cannot get over how good that line is! So good, you guys. So good.)

    Just finished M&M and adored it! Loved the tying together of the plots and the many revelations of true natures. But, as with the satisfying conclusion to all excellent series, I feel so bereft with it having ended!

    Hi, I've just finished M&Mand it was brilliant! I wondered if you could do another q&a so we can ask questions about the ending of the series? Please can we lean more about Soap and Sophronia, Dimity and Agatha as well at some point?
