Illustrating Queer Characters Primrose & Tasherit by Ace Artemis

For Pride Month I’ve been featuring Ace Artemis fan artist here in the blog. Ace has been drawing my my queer characters for a while now. I hope you enjoy seeing them illustrated as much as I do.

My last installment features Primrose & Tasherit. Of course I had to feature them, as they take center stage in the next Custard Protocol book. I’m really hoping Ace will give me a “Primrose in Tassels” or “Tash in a Tail” after reading Competence.

Finger’s crossed.

(And yes, you have to read the book to learn what I mean.)

I love this last one in particular, it’s so much fun to see Tash in different kinds of historical dress.

Can’t wait to see what you draw after Competence, Ace Artemis.

It is such an honor to have you drawing my words.

Meanwhile, Goodreads did a round-up titled “Catch Up Now: These Big Series All Have Books Coming Out in July.” COMPETENCE was one of their picks!

How to Marry a Werewolf (In 10 Easy Steps) ~ A Claw & Courtship Novella by Gail Carriger features a certain white wolf we all love to hate (except those of us weirdos who love to love him).

Guilty of an indiscretion? Time to marry a werewolf.

Rejected by her family, Faith crosses the Atlantic, looking for a marriage of convenience and revenge. But things are done differently in London. Werewolves are civilized. At least they pretend to be.

Sky’s Scribblings says of Crudrat:

“I absolutely adored Maura – no matter how others thought of her and treated her or tried to fit her into a mold, she was always just herself and totally at ease with who she was.”

    Interesting interpretation of the book descriptions – I’d personally have given Tasherit raven-black hair and stronger features (like unfair cheekbones) due to her heritage, but that’s just me.
    I have a leeetle question for you, Madame – post-Saturation (and in the modern day) is sundowner ammunition and weaponry still manufactured/used? By the CIA or NSA, perhaps?
    A point to ponder…

    I guess it’s down to a certain obnoxious navigator to provide Queen Ivy a grandchild to spoil.
