Gail Carriger & Guests Are Very Silly Over Tea, Gossip & Less Serious Matters

This is a ton of fun (and chaos) Gentle Reader, as I am hosting the effervescent Madam Askew & irrepressible Grand Arbiter (two of my besties from the steampunk world) for blue tea, hot gossip & assorted silliness.

We talk quite a bit about my latest series, the Tinkered Starsong trilogy.

The tea we’re drinking is my personally curated oolong blend for Tea Punk Teas: Deep Blue Abyss.

The glass teapot. It is microwave + stove top safe, so it can also act as a kettle. It has a really big immersion chamber, which makes it ideal for green teas and oolongs.

I called out these mangas:

Later Madam Askew and The Grand Arbiter hosted me for THEIR book group.

We talked all about the Tinkered Stars books, themes, favorite characters, and intentional poignancy.

It was a ton of fun and we get very queer, very silly, and occasionally quite deep.

We are ridiculous chaos incarnate, but also we get into a REALLY fun chats on some of my favorite bits I included in the Tinkered Starsong.

4 years ago, Madam Askew visited me alone in my old office and you can watch that (more civilized event) here:

    I just read in your newsletter that you read Old Fashioned Cupcake. Have you seen the J-drama adaptation? Subs available on Viki. com. It’s very cute.

    I’ve kind of been on a BL kick and watched the J-drama adaptation of “Cherry Magic” (subs available at twice over the winter holidays. It’s sweet and cozy. Also binged the Taiwanese BL “Plus and Minus.”

    Sorry to hear about your car issues and needing to relocate your Pops. I hope it all goes smoothly and that soon your 2024 will be full of good fortune. It’s the Year of the Dragon, so it’s got to be good!
