Can you conceive any way your book would work if the main character was male rather than female?
Another fascinating question, and yes. Alexia is rather masculine in some ways, especially for a Victorian female.
It's official I've accepted invitations to be at both OryCon
(Nov. 12-14) and Seattle's SteamCon
(Nov. 19-21). I hope to see many of you there and have updated the sightings section
of my website accordingly.
I'm excited about this jaunt, I'll be doing a fly by the Pacific Northwest during my book tour in September, but this second time around I intend to drive and really take in the countryside. I've not spend much time up north so I am really looking forward to it. Plus it is an opportunity to spend some time with friends I rarely see, so that too is a marvelous thing.
I'm deeply enamored of this young man:
He warms the cockles of my cold old heart. Of course, Lord Akeldama would
end up on a reality TV program. "Yes, my little puddings
, America is waiting for me!" Oh and you can follow him on twitter!Gail's Daily Dose

Chris Lester interviews Liz Gorinsky at the Nova Albion Steampunk convention all about editing and steampunk in particular. Yummy Man and Kick Ass Chicks
says, "Miss Alexia Tarabotti is charming to read. She is quite sassy – well, as sassy as a lady can be during Victorian times – and set in her ways. She’s comfortable with her station in life and doesn’t expect much to change. Her relationship with Lord Conall Maccon, Alpha werewolf, is really sweet."
