The last Finishing School novel is coming out at midnight, someone help me

So, someone pointed something out on the Gail Carriger Facebook Q & A event that I didn’t notice because it wasn’t close enough, but in light of certain theories, AHHHHHH:

“Oh, do go away. I’m not up to dalliance this morning.”

He pouted at her “Is that all I am to you? A plaything, a speck of dust on a sunbeam, a bit of dandelion fluff on the breeze?”

- Curtsies and Conspiracies, Chapter 6


I’ve pre-ordered the book, so I assume it’s going to be auto-delivered to my Kindle, and it is going to be a struggle to keep myself from just not reading it all the way through that night.

Save me, St. Gail.

So apparently people are starting to migrate from Tumblr to Dreamwidth...

I couldn't be happier about this new development. Tumblr's system was never meant for in-depth discussion--or long-form writing of any kind. Not only does Dreamwidth's formatting makes me nostalgic for the days of Livejournal, it's generally easier to keep things you don't like/aren't interested in off your feed, it still has the dumb gifs that made Tumblr fun, etc. I love Dreamwidth already--best of both worlds. I had to dig out my old Livejournal icons. I suppose I'll be cross-posting here for a while.

This has taken a few days since I just got back from driving to the Texas Renaissance Faire. It's the largest in the country, and holy shit, we're going every year now. It's amazing. I finally bought a big belt with lots of loops to add things to, and a fan holster for it because steampunk. And several things for the wedding next year.

Does anyone know any good nerd communities? I'm having a little trouble searching out communities. And if anyone wants to follow me now, I'll likely follow you back. :D
