Kilted Ballet, Baby Kraken & Warrior Women While Gail Is In Tucson

My darlings,

I’m returning to the Tucson Festival of Books this weekend. It’s an event I’ve attended before and always enjoy. I hope to see a few of you there. Although I will say the heat plays havoc on my outfit choices. Retro clothing is, mostly, not exactly cool.

    Looking very forward to “How To Marry A Werewolf”, but can we get “How To Marry A Pickleman”? I realize as a Creative, you can’t take requests, but I really need to know how Felix lived the rest of his life. This is important stuff.

      I intend to write Felix at some point, I promise. I really want to redeam him the way I did Preshea in Poison or Protect. He would be part of the Delightfully Deadly line.

        Oh thank goodness! I loved him but I felt betrayed by the way (we) he and Sophronia left things at the end of the series. I can’t wait for it.
