Snarklings! The Lady of the Manners is incredibly giddy with how well the release party for the Gothic Charm School book went! Swarms of you turned up at the University Village Barnes & Noble in Seattle, and made the Lady of the Manners feel very loved indeed. Thank you.
Speaking of events: remember there are Gothic Charm School reading & signing events in San Francisco/Burlingame, Los Angeles, and Bellevue this weekend! Come meet the Lady of the Manners and Pete Venters, the book’s illustrator!

Oooh, and the Lady of the Manners has a favor to ask of all of you Snarklings (and non-Snarklings, since she understands that not everyone may want to adopt that label). Please go into your local bookstores and look to see if you can find the Gothic Charm School: An Essential Guide For Goths And Those Who Love Them book! If you do find it and want to, oh, snap a photo and send it to the firstname.lastname@example.org email address, that would be lovely. The best photo sent of the Gothic Charm School book out in the wild will win a prize of a signed print of artwork from the book!
If, for whatever reason, your local book store does not carry the book, please ask one of the staff about it. The Lady of the Manners, while not usually one for asking people to do things like this, has had it vigorously explained to her that one’s First Ever Book is, well, a once-in-a-lifetime event, and that promotion is good.
Finally, the Lady of the Manners swears on her parasol collection that she will very soon indeed get back to, oh, answering the questions that Snarklings have been sending in to Gothic Charm School. She hopes within the week, but the demands of the Ravening Schedule Monster may make that a bit difficult. But soon, Snarklings, soon!
