Medusa: A Dark Victorian Penny Dread (The Dark Victorian Penny Dreads Book 2) - JoSelle Vanderhooft, Elizabeth Watasin

Or as I like to say: ketchup. :D


(I noticed here at Booklikes that my editor's name comes up first as having 'written' MEDUSA. JoSelle has also written a few things besides edited some popular lesbian anthologies, so of course that would happen. Maybe when I die she can just have all my stuff. :-p).


MEDUSA is getting good words said about it (unsolicited by me) and I'm just glad people are enjoying and recognising the effort I put in, writing a sensual book with two blind protagonists, and as my editor pointed out to me, basically four disabled characters, all of whom kick ass and politely demand names. It's probably selling decently because I finally attached the word ROMANCE to one of my works, and readers who wish I'd just finish Charm School already are on board with that. Bring on the sapphists!


I'm still in the process of finalising the MEDUSA print book, having ordered the 2nd proof. I know I have a billion coins spinning, so I *think* my priorities are Elle Black's POISON GARDEN (in progress), Dark Victorian's EVERLIFE (needs to be started), and Dark Victorian's CIRCE (needs to be researched). Oh heck, I forgot about Charm School Graphique Vol 2. Uh, and I really should draw that Charm School #10.


I *know* I'm forgetting something. I have been feeling that since the year started. The freelance I'd hoped to do is still in holding pattern in the stratosphere, so maybe it's that. All the book covers for all the books mentioned are in progress, plus 2-3 boxed sets I'm attached to via writer collectives. Wondercon is in April. I have to go to SDCC for gods knows when/WHY/how many days/WTH have to get hotel. :-/ And I *will* cancel World Con in Spokane, WA. So that's a membership badge up for grabs.


All that typed out loud, I will now put together my Steampunk Hands Around the World 2015 post, originating from here because it's pushed to Goodreads, Smashwords, my Amazon Author Page, and so forth, and is a wonderful month-long event celebrating diversity and creativity. It will also contain the link to the MEDUSA Booktrack which has also been well received and is a very nifty FREE auditory experience put together by me. If you've read this far, I hope you enjoy that treat!


All the best, ~eee
