Your Infusion of Cute . . .

Deportment & Deceit ~ The Finishing School Book the Second: Working rough draft.
I'm struggling here, struggling.
Etiquette & Espionage ~ The Finishing School Book the First: Release date Feb 2013. In production. Have seen initial cover mock-up and it is stunning!

Manga ~ Soulless Vol. 1: Printed volume releases March 1. Have seen cover sketch for Soulless Vol. 2 (AKA Changeless) and it is beyond fabulous!

Timeless ~ Parasol Protectorate Book the Last: In production. Releases March 1. Preorder now if you wish.

Prudence ~ The Parasol Protectorate Abroad Book the First: Release date fall 2013. She's started waking me up in the middle of the night with ideas.

BIG FAT SPOILER ALERT! Really, DON'T READ THE BLURB ON AMAZON if you haven't read the other books first!

Book News:
Quote of the Day:
"The first cup moistens my lips and throat. The second cup breaks my loneliness. The third cup searches my barren entrail but to find therein some thousand volumes of odd ideographs. The fourth cup raises a slight perspiration - all the wrongs of life pass out through my pores. At the fifth cup I am purified. The sixth cup calls me to the realms of the immortals. The seventh cup - ah, but I could take no more! I only feel the breath of the cool wind that raises in my sleeves. Where is Elysium? Let me ride on this sweet breeze and waft away thither."
~ Lu Tung, "Tea-Drinking"

So jealous of the people who will attend. Have a marvelous time!
Everything amazing is in SF. Why did I move to LA? oh yeah, work. This sounds like an amazing event. Very sad I'll have to miss it.
Beware - I'll be fast asleep when this takes place, which means my subconscious will empty all tea cups that aren't quick enough to hide. ;P

By the way, today's quote of the day seems to describe the symptoms of water poisoning. XD

[Deleted and re-posted in edited shape because I mistook "place" for "time". We can't do that to Einstein.]
I shouldn't comment before going to bed. Now you did indeed pop up in my dreams. You didn't happen to handle corsages during the last day, or fashionable lapdog breeds?
Aw! I'm on the east coast! :(

Have a wonderful tea party & congrats to the end of the series!

All the best!
wait? it's the last book?? Noooooooo ::epic sulk::
indeed, I am most disheartened to realise that the forthcoming folio will be te final one. Indeed I had been certain that some time ago I read a list from you showing another two of Alexia's journals yet to come. Oh dear, oh dear. Whatever shall I do now.


Forget wrong coast, I'm apparently in the wrong continent. Is it possible to attend via web-cam attached to a small dirigible?

Re: Blast

Same here! But it sounds like a fun event so enjoy yourself you all!

p.s. just hopped over to amazon to bookmark the soulless manga ^_^
Hurrah! An event I can actually attend!
Oh, I had wanted to go to this, but the travel time was a bit too much after an already busy new year. I checked your schedule, though, and I hope that I will be able to see you in Beaverton this month!
I wish I could attend, but I am sure you will have a smashing time! I salute you with my own cup of tea.
