An Author’s Research, Gail Carriger Talks 1890s Singapore & Peru for Competence (Special Extras)

I thought you’d enjoy some insight into my research for Competence today, Gentle Reader.

Primrose starts out being stranded on a Singapore whey-station while the rest of the Custard crew sort of, well, crashes in Singapore.

SINGAPORE!

Early, well before the Custard visits the area.

 

Transport 1889…

Some insights into the different types of attire and clothing, from much later on in time but still interesting.

Meanwhile, here I am in Singapore attempting to drop a baby live at the Equator! Proof I was there.

PERU!

Later on in the book we visit Peru.

I don’t want to give anything away so I thought I’d show you a few images of places the crew visits, and after you read about it in Competence you might be able to guess what is what…

I hope this insight pleased you, Gentle Reader, and that it added to your enjoyment of the book!

Want A Sneak Peek at the Research Behind Gail Carriger’s Next Custard Protocol Book? (Competence Special Extras)

Posted by Gail Carriger

 

Hello Gentle Reader,

Here, for you entertainment, amusement and titillation are a few links and peeks into some of the research that I had to do for Competence, Custard Protocol #3. I do hope you enjoy!

Podcasts

Blog Posts & Other Articles

Singapore!

What was the inspiration for setting Miss Primrose Tunstell in Singapore?

I was at the Singapore Writers Festival a few years ago and just fell in love with the place.

I also visited the National History Museum there and picked up a little book of collected primary source material from the 1890s that isn’t available elsewhere.

Then I promised the Minister of Culture Sim Ann (who is a fan of mine – squee!) that I would put it in the next book. I like to keep my promises.

Want a taste of Singapore’s infamous Kaya Toast? Just get this coconut jam (actually coconut curd) and spread on toast with salted butter (it’s not exactly right but it’s still so good).

Warning, must love coconut.

Yours forever (in coconutty goodness),

Competence Chapter Titles & Percy’s POV Will Make You Giggle (Special Extras)

Posted by Gail Carriger

My darlings,

I sent this out already to the Chirrup but just to tempt you a bit, here are the very silly chapter titles from my forthcoming book, Competence.

Trouble finding the paperback edition of Competence in the UK? It’s here.

Gail Loves Chapter Titles

I always love writing chapters and titles. Like names, there are some of us authors relish coming up with such things. Others really really hate it. Anywhoo, I often use it as an excuse for a particularly bad pun.

What can I say? It’s my thing.

Competence Chapters

  1. A Lioness in a Hat and Other Concerns
  2. A Bad Case of the Dropsies
  3. A Merlion in a Mushroom
  4. The Premier Floating Philosophy Club
  5. A Grey Melancholy Danger
  6. In Which Thomas Aquinas is an Absolute Corker
  7. A Very Warm Welcome
  8. A Mystery, a Fez, and an Italian Mathematician
  9. Soup Ladle of Death
  10. Cats Can’t Be Trusted
  11. Our Lord and Saviour the Spotted Custard
  12. Rumours of Pishtacos
  13. On Hives, Haciendas and Hijinks
  14. The Etiquette of Proper Introductions
  15. Weddings and Their Consequences
  16. Homeward Bound

Of course my absolute favorite in chapter 9. It makes me soooooooo happy…

Soup Ladle of Death

Also, if you still aren’t tempted, in this book, you get….

Percy’s POV!

Percy & Footnote Fanart by Desiree Schwartz

Ever wonder how or why Percy comes up with those ridiculous non-sequiturs?

Want more of the Latin in his warped little brain?

Well in this book you get a peek into his head.

Okay, I’ll stop now.

Yours etc…

Miss Gail

P.S. In case you missed it, look what I got in my office recently!

Pride Month: Illustrating Queer Characters Primrose & Tasherit by Ace Artemis

Posted by Gail Carriger

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.

Follow Ace Artemis on Twitter & Tumblr

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.)

Primrose & Tasherit

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.

The Range of Cover Art ~ Gail Carriger’s Heartless (Special Extras)

Posted by Gail Carriger

 

Good morning, Gentle Reader.

Today I thought it might be fun for you to see the range of cover art that my book Heartless got over the course of time and space and 7 years in publication.

Here we go…

First off is the original mass market paperback as produced July 17, 2011. Next to it I have the updated trade version. The mass market size is now out of print.

Here on left is the Japanese translation version, this is the smallest of my books. It’s about the size of a 3X5 card. Next to it is the german translation of Heartless.

Aside from Germany (and the pocket edition in France) and Japan, every other foreign publisher chose to do a take on the original cover image for their translations. This is pretty unusual and rather flattering.

Lastly here is the Omnibus cover for the collected Heartless & Timeless. Currently the only way to get Heartless in hardcover.

There it is. What do you think of the different covers? Anything surprise you? Any one you really love?

Praise for Heartless

  • Stacy of Lost in Librolandia says: “Heartless by Gail Carriger was a rip-roaring, side-splitting good time, to be sure. It is crazy how much can happen in such a short time when Gail Carriger is organizing the plot. … The historical accuracy is fascinating, the characters are delightful, and the witty banter is sheer perfection, the best I’ve ever read!”
  • Sara from Freadom Library says: “The supporting characters are freaking awesome. There’s a new specific story line that I think is amazing and there’s also some new information about a particular character’s past that just blows my mind.”
  • Brittany of For the Love of the Read says: “This author has a way of writing these stories that keeps me hooked. I’m excited to read the last book, but I’m not sure I’m ready to be done!”
  • Just Another Belle says: “Gail Carriger has a fantastic way of writing a (larger) cast of characters but feeling like each one of them is completely fleshed out. I wish I could jump into the pages of this book to interact with every single one of them– I couldn’t even pick one that I’d like to meet most.”
  • Cassandra Giovanni says:
    “I did like that we got to see a bit more of the secondary characters of Lyall and Biffy and the background of Alexia’s birth and being soulless rolls out nicely. Overall, it was an excellent read.”
  • My Thoughts Literally says: “I have always absolutely loved Gail Carriger’s books for the characters and that was totally the case in Heartless. You will often find me complaining about books with large casts of characters being confusing and it hard to keep the characters straight and that is not the case here at all. There’s a massive cast of characters here and they are all memorable, unique, and amazing. I honestly get excited when someone comes back into the story because they are so fun and quirky.”
  • Hugh Likes Fiction says: “Carriger does it again with her fast paced comic misadventures in Victorian supernatural society. Her grasp of character and timing is once again on display as she navigates Alexia through mystery, society expectations and steampunk hi-jinx.”

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

Posted by Gail Carriger

 

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.

Dressing Gown 1832 The McCord Museum

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.

Character Inspiration: Teddy in How to Marry a Werewolf (Special Extras)

Posted by Gail Carriger

 

Quick note before I start, today…

Soulless is an Amazon Daily Deal at $2.99. 

And now on to your regularly scheduled blog post.

So one of my favorite things to happen in How to Marry a Werewolf was not only the way the relationship between Faith & Channing progressed, but also the relationship between Faith & Teddy (Faith’s cousin).

1901 July, Les Modes Paris – L’escalier du Moulin

This images above is totally the wrong time period (about 5 years too late) but I think of Faith and Teddy when I see it. Faith is the lower down one. It’s like they put on fancy dress and are pretending to be all serious and stuff.

So here’s a bit on Teddy in particular…

British actress Lily Hanbury

It’s that cheeky smile. The Teddy in my head always has a cheeky smile. If you look up more pictures of this actress that’s basically how I picture Teddy all the time.

I’ve saved a number Teddy’s Pinterest board!

Here’s a typical Teddy outfit. I put her in a lot of oranges and browns and stripes but I also see her in dots and spots and other patterns. Her dresses are always a bit more frantic and busy than Faith’s.

And here’s Teddy in a sexy outfit for her nervous beau. Poor man.

To see more check out Teddy’s Pinterest board!
