This is not a book. This is not a story. This is a compendium of extras and appendices for lovers of the Parasolverse. You see, upon occasion the vampire, Lord Akeldama, hijacks Miss Gail’s blog and turns it into an advice column to take readers’ questions.
Alexia worried her lower lip. “I simply must speak with Lord Akeldama.”
Miss Hisselpenny looked, if possible, even more worried. “Oh really, must you? He is so very outrageous.”
~ from Soulless
In this slender volume you will find the following:
Part the first ~ a collection of ten years’ worth of the Good Vampire’s advice including on such wide-ranging topics as fashion, relationships, food, travel, culture, and identity.
Part the second ~ a collection of bits and bobs related specifically to Lord Akeldama.
Part the third ~ a series of short essays, intellectual salon-style, on such topics as shoehorning the paranormal into a steampunk world; vampire quandaries; and how Victorian world-building elements work in the Parasolverse.
Part the fourth ~ deleted scenes with various favorite characters from the Parasol Protectorate, Finishing School, and Custard Protocol series.
Delicate sensibilities? Expect excessive use of italics.
- While Amazon has assured us authors that their ridiculous .mobi format is obsolete, some Kindle users seem to be having issues with Dear Lord Akeldama .epub working with their Kindle app/device. So I've made a .mobi available. Here's a handy dandy guide on how to sideload to your Kindle.
Two versions of the epub one for kindle & the other for everyone else.
