Huh. With the exception of the signing at The Dreaming on Saturday (starts at 4PM! If you're in the Seattle-ish area, you should show up!), the Gothic Charm School book tour is ... done. Mind you, if some event somewhere contacts me and says "We'd love to have you as a guest, here let us cover your travel expenses!"
, then I will gleefully pack the giant suitcase and Go Forth. But as it stands now, the tour has wrapped up.
The book tour, as scramble-y and hectic as it was at times, was an amazing
experience. Meeting people who like my work! Seeing friends, making new friends! Tea parties! Thank you to everyone who came to an event, and a HUGE
thank you to everyone who put time and effort into helping make those events successful. The Flickr pool of book tour photos is here (clicky-link, of course)
, and if you have photos from any of the Gothic Charm School events, please add them there!
Now that the book tour is done, I will be focusing on writing new posts for Gothic Charm School, writing my blog for the Lip Service Webzine
, working on the proposal for the next book project (eeek!), and oh right, job-hunting. (Anyone need an editor?)
Vampires. Right. We finished watching season 1 of True Blood last night. I enjoyed the show far
more than I enjoyed the books. I am hoping that season 2 has more of a focus on the vampire side of the world, and less of Sookie being a twit. Yes, I would be quite happy to watch the Eric & Pam show, why do you ask? (I suspect that I'm going to be watching a double-feature of Near Dark
and 30 Days of Night
in the near future, because I can
. I prefer my vampires to be menacing, not whiny.)
I also have a whole stack of new-to-me, possibly trashy, vampire books to read, thanks to the book tour stop at Powell's. Really, I do read other things besides paranormal genre fiction. I just really like paranormal genre fiction.

Aaaaand, coming soon to this LJ: hey, I haven't done any Shallow Fashion Details posts in a while, have I? I should. Oooh, and maybe a post of clicky-links of coveting! Everyone likes window-shopping, right? (Just nod in agreement here, folks.)
