The 5th Gender (A Tinkered Stars Mystery as G. L. Carriger).
Sci-fi queer romance meets cozy mystery in which a hot space station cop meets the most adorable purple alien ever (lavender, pulease!) from a race with 5 genders.

“Super sweet sci-fi romance, really cool exploration of non-binary gender identities, with just a little bit of naughty tentacle shenanigans. Full review here.“

“The bottle rules the sensual world, but the tea-cup is queen in all the fair dominions.”
~ Around the Tea Table, by T. De Witt Talmage (c.1895)
Your Writerly Tinctures . . .
“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
~ Madeleine L’Engle
“Someone was trying to kill Lady Alexia Maccon. It was most inconvenient, as she was in a dreadful hurry.

Quote of the Day:
“I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.”
