Alexia in Shock

In Which Gail Is Honored By A Fan Site

I have a fan site! Parasol Protectorate on blogspot!

As you probably know, Gentle Reader, I run a online discussion forum on facebook groups but it's pretty free form. I merely hop in to share a thought, boot off-topic posts or repeat shares, or see what's the chatter. And I have a page on facebook, for those who only want information on releases and events. (Yes, I've been loosely considering a bi-monthly news letter, but would anyone be interested?)

But this, this is a fan run site. Nicole (@wordforteens on Twitter) started it. I hope many of you will follow it and chat there and have a grand old time. Already, there's been some fan art, a discussion on fantasy casting, and more.

Right now my life is pretty crazy. I'm working two books at once (researching and writing one & copy-editing the other), gearing up for my last few events of 2012 in Tulsa and Las Vegas, revamping my website, and various other stuff. I'm hoping you will forgive me a little slow down on this blog and play on the new fan site to your hearts content.

Quote of the Day:
"It is a great convenience to take one's own bath with one in travelling, since, although they are generally to be obtained in all frequented resorts at a slight weekly charge, as soon as one fest of the beaten track there is often greta difficulty in providing oneself with this necessity of daily life."
~ Lillias Campbell Davidson, 1889

The fansite is quite nice! What a very cool compliment to you (and much-deserved, I might add).

Just remember, in the midst of all this busyness, to breathe and take time for tea! :)
Yay for a fan site! I've had a quick look at it and it looks wonderful! I can't wait to have a good poke around when I'm a little less busy on the uni front.

And I would be very interested in a bi-monthly newsletter! :)
I just purchased the manga for Soulless and I love it!! I can't wait to download the ebook managa version for the next book!!

Plus I am thoroughly enjoying Timeless. Though I must admit I am very very very sad that this is the last book. I really think you should consider maybe writing more about Alexia in the future. I'm a tall, big Italian woman and it is nice to have a heroine I can relate to. :)

Oh and another question for Lord Akeldama: What is your favorite outfit to wear in the 21st century?

Keep up the good work. You are the best!
Delighted you like it!

No more Alexia books, although familiar characters do show up in both new series.

I'll pass on your quesiton to the Dear Lord.

Thanks for such kind words!
