Dear Lord Akeldama: The 2011 Edition, Part Six

Lord Akeldama

Dear Lord Akeldama . . .

Mary D asks:
What is your considered opinion on the nature of *sparkling* vampires?
Everyone should sparkle darling, not just vampires! I suggest diamonds are a good beginning or possibly sapphires. Then you can move into the arena of more strident colors such as emeralds and rubies. Really, my darling girl, the more sparkle the better!

Aik asks:
Hi Lord Akeldama, what is your main hobby besides dressing up as a stylish gentleman?
I do adore a little spate of flower arrangement now and then, and I am a great theater and opera aficionado. I wouldn't say no to a good symphony or two when the mood strikes. Now don't let it get out, but I may have also involved myself in a business concern over the invention of a new ablution potion that I am rather whimsically calling bubble bath. Sounds delightfully fun, now doesn't it?

Susana Ricardo asks:
What was your favorite neck of all time?
Now now, my dearest child, a gentleman never bites and tells.

Joana Dias asks:
I think I would just ask "Do you want to be my vampire?".
Why how flattering! My little squash blossom, there are some who have said that I would be anyone's vampire . . . for an evening or two.

PinkStuff28 asks:
What's really like to be a vampire? Are all of those myths true?
It is a whirl of endless parties, long nights, and sweet compliments. All the myths are true, pinky my precious, and a few more I haven't invented yet! Except for the one about the mirror. Can you imagine, me, unable to see my own reflection? Heaven forefend!

Lord Akeldama is delighted to mention that his creator, Gail, will be launching a new blog, Retro Rack, devoted entirely to his favorite pursuit of all time . . . fashion. The first entry will officially drop June 1, and she is considering offering a small bribe in the form a of a very cute little brown plaid purse and a signed book to those who choose to follow her there.

Gail's Daily Dose
Your Infusion of Cute:

Your Tisane of Smart:
Roman Romb Found Under Naples Toxic Waste Dump
Your Writerly Tinctures:
How not to respond to a bad review in three links. 1. The beginning of the kerfuffle, 2. the book reviewed on Amazon: The Greek Seaman (You MUST check out the sarcastic 5 star reviews ~ hilarious), and 3. the author's blog.

Timeless: Second draft back, working 3rd draft.
Secret Project F: It is ALIVE! (But sleeping while I finish edits on 5.)
Secret Project PPA: Only a twinkle in my little eye.


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


Manon Goudreau's lovely sketches of a certainly newly minted werewolf from Book 3. I think they could reasonably be Professor Lyall also.

Quote of the Day:
"Why oh why must editing always take twice as long as you think and be twice as hard as it should?"
~ Gail to Dan at a Recent Writing Date
