I think that there is always a small part of her half in love with Madame Lefoux but she could never understand that's what it was, so she never acknowledges it.

It is my very great delight and pleasure to write them for you! I do love readers who dive into history, I feel like there are little cookies inside my books that only you might notice.

All the best,

I have been considering a scheme to give a few of the supporting cast (like Dimity, Agatha, Preshea, etc) their own grown-up novellas. However that would be a few years away and conditional on various other contracted deadlines. I suppose you could say: I'm not ruling it out but I'm not making any promises. I don't like writing checks the internet can't cash. (less)

Rochelle Hi Gail,

Thanks for writing Soulless - I spent all night reading it (with many cups of tea ;)...)

I was looking forward to reading this after I heard about it :) I love urban fantasies, historical romances and comedies, and to have that all mixed up with steampunk made your novel a great combo :) It was a great way to get introduced to steampunk. Really enjoyed the main character (women with spirit, who know what they want & don't want, are needed more in novels).

I will definitely be working (ie enjoying) my way through the rest of your books :)

*hugs from Australia*
PS. Have you tried "Milky Oolong" tea? It's delicious, but you need to have it at 80 degrees celsius so it's not bitter (being semi-fermented tea and all).

Thank you, thank you. I'm delighted you enjoyed it so much!


Stephanie Your book (Soulless) has been staring me in the face every day at work (I work at the local Book Shop) and every day I've said, "okay... *this* is my next book". But like any good bookseller, I'm easily distracted by all the "shiny" things in my store. Well, the time has come... I bought Soulless and haven't been able to put it down. So I stocked up for the weekend and bought Changeless, Blameless, and Heartless. Bring on the rainy weekend!

By the way, you are AMAZING. And so is Alexia. I adore her.

Keep up the INCREDIBLE work, and I will most definitely keep reading!

Tegan So I'm a little behind on the times (I graduated college this year, so it was too busy for fun reading :( boo), I just finished Changeless, but I absolutely loved it! I can't wait to see what happens next! :)
