When the Book Surprises the Author, How Gail Decides What To Write Next & Sneaky Hints on Future Projects (Video Q&A)

Posted by Gail Carriger

My darlings a new chatty video for you. I got silly and excited about the Soulless Illustrated HC, new nonfiction book Girl Squads, and seeing a performance of queer Oklahoma!

Questions Answered

Will there be more illustrated editions of the Parasol Protectorate Series? How does Gail feel about the style of the illustrations? How does she feel about how the artist interprets her characters?

What hashtag should we use when showing off our Soulless illustrations colored in? #colorsolverse

Who has the rights to Gail’s series?

What surprised Gail when writing The Omega Objection (the next San Andreas Shifter book)? Where is the pre-order? (It’s COMING SOON.) Hints about cover art.

Why Gail is so discombobulated?

Will there be a movie/film? Will there be a Finishing School manga?

More Sophronia? More Alexia? More Lord A? (Plus some insight into his sex life.)

Will we get an American story line in the Parasolverse?

Would Gail ever write fantasy with a full-on magical system?

Why does Gail decide to write a book and how does she choose a main character? What’s her favorite weather for writing? Time of day?

Booklist Online says:

“High jinks and peril abound as the Custard navigates uncharted air currents, and the characters bicker over everything from Thomas Aquinas to tasseled hats. Recommend this amusing romp to steampunk and LGBT+ readers looking for suspenseful and romantic fantasy.”

How to Marry a Werewolf (In 10 Easy Steps) ~ A Claw & Courtship Novella by Gail Carriger features a certain white wolf we all love to hate (except those of us weirdos who love to love him).

Guilty of an indiscretion? Time to marry a werewolf.

Rejected by her family, Faith crosses the Atlantic, looking for a marriage of convenience and revenge. But things are done differently in London. Werewolves are civilized. At least they pretend to be.

Posted by Gail Carriger

 

Have a love Q&A video for you today, Gentle Reader, and some companion fun links.

Here’s my latest live video Q&A in which we mostly attempt to stick to How to Marry a Werewolf but deviate, because that’s what we do.

Deviants.

The lot of us.

SECRETS REVEALED

  • Why Faith is a geologist.
  • Writing an American character at last!
  • Confessions about Reticence.
  • Struggles with vampires. (Edict Keepers & Howlers too.)
  • Covert links between Lyall, Lord Akeldama, and cloning.

QUESTIONS ANSWERED

  • Will there be more Americans?
  • Fleshing out the London pack?
  • How to track the Parasolverse timeline?
  • What’s it like to write Channing?
  • Why the fashion obsession?
  • More hardcovers?

SHOW NOTES

Teacups, Side Characters & Scammers Plus Glorious Links & Behind the Scenes of Competence (Video Q&A with Gail Carriger)

Posted by Gail Carriger

Hello Gentle Watcher,

here is my latest Facebook Live!

In this Live:

Gail tells a story about teacups and shows off her new acquisitions. Gail is drinking Twinings 1706 strong tea with milk out of her new teacup.

The Questions!

New book?

Gail answers the following questions about How to Marry a Werewolf:

Why write about Channing? The answer to that in this blog post!

Gail didn’t get to answer a question about whether there was explicit sex or not in this book. Answer:

Sex style is about on the level with Soulless.

Gail also never got to a question about writing an American for a change.

It was challenging! She had to have a couple editors help her to make certain Faith sounded American. (Although at the time Boston high society tried to be as British as possible, so Faith probably wouldn’t have sounded all that different.)

Specific Characters?

Why LBGTQ Characters: Gail answers in the video but here’s further reading:

Floote: How did his character develop? Did Gail know what would happen with him from the start?

Aggie: Timeline, how does she fit in with Lefoux, more about her as a person?

Dimity: Where did she come from?

 

Pillover & Felix: Will they reappear?

Lord Maccon: Where did he come from?

Sophronia & Soap: More?

Business of Writing?

Focusing on Indie: What does the future of publishing look like to Gail?

Difference between writing adult and YA for traditional publishers and why Gail chooses one over another.

Print editions and scammers and why it’s such a hassle.

Some advice for aspiring authors. More resources with tips here.

THREE NOVELLA LINES

Blog post explaining why Gail chose 3 separate novella lines to come, meanwhile here they are:

  • Delightfully Deadly: Stand alone romances set in Gail’s Parasolverse full of manners, spies, and supernatural creatures taking tea. This series follows the exploits of the highly trained and dangerous graduates of Mademoiselle Geraldine’s.
  • Supernatural Society: Queer romances and super niche fan service stories. Contains a great deal of shockingly forward flirtation between members of the same sex, between supernaturals of different species, and even between high society and the lower orders (gasp).
  • Claw & Courtship: Stand alone romances set in Gail’s Parasolverse full of werewolves in cravats and the women who love them (both the werewolves and their cravats). The London Pack finds love at last.

Other Stuff in the Video

Has Gail any plans for other non Parasolverse universes and stories?

The great Resources (sorry, not references) Page, and specifically Gail’s recommended books for readers. Gail calls out the following romance authors in this vide:

The fateful movie question.

Does Gail like Outlander?

Final Notes

WorldCon’s LBGTQ Initiative.

What is Gail reading RIGHT NOW?

Loving Jay

I just find this story very comforting. I keep rereading it because it makes me so happy. It’s set in Perth and it’s basically a coming out story. It’s a train-set meet cute. Jay is delicious, flamboyant, and dramatic (if you like Lord Akeldama you’ll love Jay) and Liam is such a sweetheart. A big warm hug of a book.

The Lesbian Review says of Romancing the Inventor:

“Genevieve Lefoux is one of my favorite characters of all time, and I loved watching her navigate obliviously toward happiness. The sexual tension is delicious, and the payoff is sweet and wonderful, while not being terribly graphic. Fans of Carriger’s work will love this dive into a secondary character’s life, while first-time readers may very well find themselves picking up Carriger’s novels.”

I start off discussing how Romancing the Werewolf came to be, planned and unplanned elements and a bit about finding the cover art photo.

Then I address my philosophy on making characters happy, and why I love curmudgeons so much.

The Hedgehog Librarian says of Romancing the Werewolf:

“Carriger brings these characters together again in a love story both between them and between her readers and her. This is not a story to jump into without the background; characters are referenced in a natural way but it assumes that you understand her already built world. For those already familiar, as Lyall does, we are coming home.”

Sumage Solution Audiobook Available Now! Video of my Q&A

Posted by Gail Carriger

 

Producer Bryan and I worked like demons (OK, OK, he and Kirt did all of the work) to get The Sumage Solution recorded and out as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, it just took a little too long for Amazon to process the files so it wasn’t timed to print/digital release perfectly.

But it’s available now!

The Sumage Solution is narrated by the immeasurably talented Kirt Graves. I found him because he narrated Wolfsong (which I recommend) and I know he’s comfortable with this style of book. I wanted a talented American male voice for this puppy.

So to speak.

As ever, Bryan Lincoln did my production, because he’s AWESOME. (And no, the character of Bryan has nothing to do with this Bryan. So get those minds out of the gutter… er.. forest. Sorry, gentlemen.)
