Dear Author, How Could You End the Series? (Occasional FAQ)

Today, Gentle Reader, I introduce a new occasional series of installments of questions I get constantly. How Could You End It? I’m delighted you liked the series but it is finished.

Timeless Clock App (Parasol Protectorate)

Orbit has developed a steampunk Parasol Protectorate clock app for me! Very exciting, and free on iTunes. I am a particular fan of the teatime feature. If you turn it on, a little quote appears at tea time every day. So far as I know there are not plans to put it on any other […]

European Tour Schedule

I leave tomorrow, Gentle Reader. Am I running around like the proverbial headless chicken? Darlings, I’m a boneless skinless chicken breast.

Ending a Series ~ Part 2: Emotions (Important for Writers)

There’s a sense of listlessness at the ending of a series, Gentle Reader. I’ve felt it for years as a voracious reader, now I feel it as an author for the first time. It’s a little like breaking up with a partner you still love plus losing friends through time and distance plus ending a […]

Timeless Research (Parasol Protectorate Special Extras)

Some inspirational images from Timeless research. I though you’d like to see some pictures of things I drew upon for this last book. Kind of like a book design board. I promise, Gentle Reader, no spoilers, or nothing that you would know is a spoiler until after you finish the book!   Romance on the […]
