Moving Offices

  1. Do you stick to a specific regime, or are you a chaotic mover?
  2. Was purging stuff hard for you?
  3. Does it FEEL different writing here? Does the environment change your mindset?
  4. Did it take you long to adjust to the new place? Feeling like you’re home?
  5. Do you do anything to make your new place *smell* right as well as looking right, to settle in?
  6. Will the kitty come visit the new office?

Act of Writing

  • What do you do to stay limber while writing all day? (Wrist braces.)
  • Do you do anything else while writing? Music?
  • Did you enjoy the Heroine’s Journey‘s process? How did it compare to the fiction?
  • How do you stay focused while writing with other people?

Working On Now

  • Are you writing now or editing?
  • Hints about Defy or Defend. Side characters making cameos, Pillover or Sophronia?

  • Did that poll influence the next projects you have planned? (The poll in question.)
  • What is the the most “out there” project you want to do?

In this short story Alexia Tarabotti attends what seems to be a dull London party, until the new werewolf Alpha turns up, is unconscionably rude to her, and sits on a hedgehog.

Lost in a Good Book says of Soulless:

“The pure joy of this is not even these supernatural creatures, it is Carriger’s storytelling ability and her way with words and dialogue.”

“Grammar is a flexible thing, especially where commas are concerned.”

    I don’t know if you realize this, but after reading your science fiction novella a short story it takes place on the space station I think it’s called V gender but you called it something else in one of the chirup News letters so maybe I’ve got the name wrong but it seems to me that if you do write another novel about Tristol and his love, that there should be a scene in which I know if it’s a counselor or what basically after reading the report of the events comes to the conclusion that it was murder by the government because with all their tests and with all they’re supposed DNA check Etc to stick him on a ship and put him in a situation that he was put in, is tantamount to murder, they knew there was a problem. It was a psychological problem and that there was severe depression already there, but they put him in a situation where there was only one possibility for him to mate with and that right there comes off like what can only be called rape…can’t even lie call sexual harassment because it doesn’t fall into that category but it’s like taking a a gun full of blanks and pointing it at a person with a heart condition yeah they die of natural causes but it’s still murder. Also it’s a lot like those parents who tried to force their gay kid to be straight. Or straight out of the TV version of the first scene of a show I have never liked (because it whitewashed the novel) Handmaid’s Tale…
