Happy World Octopus Day

Gentle Reader, October 8th is World Octopus Day! Meanwhile Curtsies & Conspiracies is out in paperback so let's combine the magic, shall we? It’s been too long since I’ve run a contest and you know I love to reward the careful reader.

Curtsies Thumb

In honor of both let’s do a big Parasol Protectorate giveaway!

I have 5 full sets of the trade paperback sized Parasol Protectorate to send out to winners (as well as some assorted swaggy bits). That's Soulless, Changeless, Blameless, Heartless, and Timeless. Already own them? Why not try to win them for your local library?

This contest has ended. Details redacted.

Book News:
Chick Lit Chickadees By Lindsey Riley says of E&E “My absolute favorite character, however, was a tiny mechanimal, Bumbersnoot. I WANT ONE! He is a little machine animal that wags his tail and curls up to sleep and behaves very much like a real dog, with the exception that he eats coal instead of dog biscuits and does not shed. Trust me when I say that after reading the book, you will be wishing a mechanimal was already invented so you could have one as a pet, to. ...If you like steampunk, spunky heroines, and puppies, you will like this book. Buy it now!”

Quote of the Day:
“Away we flew. The car, having such a light load, frisked and kicked, and made merry of a journey that to us was becoming very grave.”
~ Around the Tea Table by T. De Witt Talmage (1875)
