My first stand-alone fantasy novella have finally been published on Amazon! It's a real relief, after several months of delay and dates changes, I had thought that this day would never come to pass. Today is a good day to celebrate!  8)
Hurrah! Well done and what a fantastic day, getting your novella out there.

Preorders help an author more than you think!

I have the day off. Woot! (It still counts if I have to join one meeting by phone at 3:30, right?)

Here is the plan:
>Finish reading Eric’s Supremacy’s Shadow. All you “I only read Fantasy” snots out there need to get over it, and read this really fun book.
> Write up feedback for JRTroughton’s short story
> Take some new pants to the tailor to be hemmed (Almost no one sells 28” inseam pants, so every pair costs another $12 for hemming)
>Pay the bills...
And
>Work on my story “Billy Broke Locks”, which I’ve picked up to do a re-write after a year away from it.

Or, maybe I should reverse that order.

I just thought I'd ask: Are there any amateur poets on this site? I'm piecing together my next series, set in a city inspired by Victorian London, and I thought it would be cool to spice things up with some simple folk poems about various creepy things. Most notably a local boogeyman called the Smiling Man. And I have no talent for poetry at all.

I’m up for the poetry aid too!
I’m just more mature about it than Gemmy.  :P

Say, does anyone here know anything about cleaning bloodstains? I'm wondering how my Victorian vampire should dress, from a practical standpoint. You know, because a vampire putting on a bib before feeding would just be silly. I guess dark colours would keep the stains from showing in low lighting, but I thought maybe she should just switch to leather, for easy cleaning.

Out of what? I am reliably informed that soaking and agitating in cold water then washing works well for fresh blood. Linen can be boiled and starched items such as collars (yeah they were often separate) boiled and re-starched. Silk is a protein and not a fibre but cold saltwater works if you don't have modern cleaning agents.
Soaking in vinegar then washing is an option.

With my re-enactment (yeah accidents happen) gear if it was dried blood I used to soak it in coca cola then wash it out. Coke is Victorian but I don't think it really made it out of America until the first world war and the 1920's commercially.

Well, I'm asking because I haven't decided. Thanks for the input. But am I right that leather is easier to clean than fibre?

Also, what does HTH stand for?
