Now with confirmation of the event, I have finally read through the official invitation and am filled with anticipation. Tea of course is never a bad idea; but tea with excellent company is truly splendid. A reading and pre-release copy of a novel by a favorite author would be worth the time, even without nibbles and beverage. Together, who could resist?
The party celebrates both the launch of Timeless, the final installment of the Parasol Protectorate series and the end of the series. No reason to celebrate the latter, you say? Bittersweet as this ending may be, it enables a new series to begin - Finishing School, whose book the first releases in approximately a year.
As I will finish Timeless within a week of holding it in my hands, the year could drag perilously slowly. Recommendations for reading during the gap would be most welcome. Victorian fantasy classics? Steampunk works I may have missed? Obscure titles? Do tell; and I shall report in full on the tea.
