Dear Lord Akeldama ~ On Rude Brothers & Getting His Own Novella (nope)

I invited the good vampire back to the blog today, Gentle Reader. He was in a bit of an abrupt and snarky mood. A snit, if you will.

I think he’s mad he doesn’t make an appearance in my latest book. He doesn’t like it when I don’t give him enough attention.

Chirrup Members Ask Lord Akeldama…

Fall front or conventional button fly for breeches?

Everything is better with buttons. I have only one image for you, my dove, sailor pants.

Any advice for a young, married woman working to increase her fashion sense, my rude brother often points out I have none.

Make the rude brother shop for you, my little foxglove.

How did Gail convince you to participate?

She’s very very trixy.

Do you feel as though you’ve been able to grow personally in the centuries since your turning? Obviously you do well keeping up with (or generating) the cutting edge of fashion and that’s part of how you’ve remained vital for so long, but internally has being undead somewhat stagnated your growth, or would you say that your sequential loves and losses have also kept you evolving personally?

We are all creatures of our time, sweetpea. The questions is, which time?

When will you get a book to yourself?

Never, dumpling. I’m far too difficult to pin down in merely a few pages. I will not be trivialized! Except by myself, of course.

What is your favorite tea?

Tea? Tea! Blood or champagne or both, snookums! How could you possibly suggest otherwise?

What are your (or the Creator’s) favorite teas?

She’s very plebeian. Drinks a great deal of English breakfast and refuses anything too bright or brisk. The woman is nothing if not opinionated about tea, my honeysop. She reliably informs me that this is her favorite, Twinings 1706 Strong.

{Gail interjects: I have a whole list of favorite teas and tea related items in this Amazon list.}

Mademoiselle Geraldine’s girls have a few essentials, and Lady M always carries her parasol; what are your “must-have” accessories?

Well there is my golden pipe for important occasions but generally I find if one dresses perfectly everything else will be provided as needed, my little poppet.

How did you come to live in England?

Very carefully.
