Marine Biology Special Extras: Cover Story & Character Boards

So, Gentle Reader, if you sign up for the Chirrup you get the option of a digital download of Marine Biology plus sample chapter of The Sumage Solution. (You’ll have to sideload it onto your device of choice. Google sideload + your device.)

Wanna know more about the cover?

I thought you might be interested in the companion Pinterest boards. Here’s the one that is for Marine Biology. You can see how I imagine Alec and Marvin look:

I hope you like exploring these two characters. Just wait until you get to meet Bryan and Max, the main characters in The Sumage Solution. They are soooooo adorable.

{Gail’s monthly read along for May is Radiance by Grace Draven.}

Your Infusion of Cute . . .

“It is no secret in the circles in which he moves that Bertram Wooster, though as glamorous as one could wish when night has fallen and the revels get under way, is seldom a ball of fire at the breakfast table. Confronted with the eggs and b., he tends to pick cautiously at them, as if afraid they may leap from the plate and snap at him. Listless, about sums it up. Not much bounce to the ounce.”

Book News:

Tumblr’s Through the Looking Glass says of Etiquette & Espionage:

“I have quite often thought that I was born in the wrong era, but upon reading the Finishing School series I have become quite convinced I live in the wrong universe altogether. Gail Carriger pens a Victorian world filled with romance, espionage and the supernatural, a sprinkling of Steampunk and a good dollop of comedy that delights and amuses with every turn of the page, serving to make me giggle aloud on several occasions in a highly undignified fashion.”

    Interesting new cover. I still love the 2nd cover, even if it clashes with the new (I hope) series and cover theme. Either is a vast improvement over the original e-cover though.

    Will Alec and Marvin pop up in “The Sumage Solution”? I loved how cute and adorable they were together in the original short and would like to see them pop up, if only in the background. I also hope that Alec is still an atypical werewolf alpha. I’ve actually always been a little wary of werewolf stories due to their massive levels of testosterone and sometimes toxic masculinity. I know i shouldn’t worry because you’ve always had a variety of male characters, but I liked how different Alec was (and Lyall and Biffy). M/M stories can sometimes be a little too heteronormative and have a distinct lack of realistic gay voices. I’m always annoyed that M/M fiction is almost afraid of being “too gay” sometimes.
