Well, Gentle Reader, I'm sure you may have guessed life is pretty crazy these days. So many launches (E&E Trade, C&C new, Book of the Dead, Fairy Debt, Crudrat kickstarter) and winding up the madness, coming in at the finish:
This is the graphic novel adaptation of Blameless, Book 3 in the Parasol Protectorate series. It goes on sale tomorrow, November 19. Here's a little teaser.
This is the US release date, it will also be available as an ebook at that time. However, it may not be available in your area or at this time for these reasons. Since I am away from my computer at a convention in Canada right now, I won't be able to answer any additional questions about the release at this time, for which I do apologize. I'll be back online the day after the release.
To the best of my knowledge, this will be the last of the Soulless manga. I feel both blessed and lucky to be one of the few authors to get a graphic novel adaptation of her work, and Yen has been a real pleasure to work with the entire time. Those of you who have read Heartless and know how manga art works can probably guess why. Also REM's talent is amazing, and I think we can understand that she might want to work on her own stuff for a change.
As a semi spoiler teaser for those of you unhappy with me for a certain romantic twist in the book Blameless, you may be pleased to find that in this adaptation things come out a little differently for two well loved and extremely stylish characters.

Quote of the Day:
“Now I will let you in on something about me. That pang is about feeling out of step with the stages of life more than having missed out on them. This is not to say that I haven’t, for maybe I have, but I have also been too busy to notice.”
