Hey, 2011! Hey, y'all!

Blog posts were a bit light on the ground in December, though I am super pleased you guys liked the Christmas present! I hope you all had a good holiday season, whatever you celebrate ('Off Work Celebration Week' being a fine festive time). And I hope you got good presents.

I was in fact blogging a bit during December, but not on my blog. Here are some blog posts I did make!

Christmas Couple

Money Island

Magic And Milk Bottles

I Am Totally Team Team

And okay, I didn't make this blog post, but YOU GUYS: Mae is a KITTEN! I love cats, and I love seeing my girl get some love.

Now I have been thinking about blog posts I would like to make, about Times I Have Been A Bad Feminist and Demon's Surrender and favourite couples and a Voyage of the Dawn Treader parody and news I will be able to tell you soon and pictures! I thought I'd start by showing you some excellent pictures and then think of what to do next! (Votes welcome.)

Fabulous artist Hanna Osadko drew me some illustrations for the Ukrainian edition of Demon's Lexicon, and I have been given permission to show you a few of them, with thanks to her, my translator and Bohdan publishing house!











Ain't they cool? I feel very lucky to have such awesomeness from 2010. It isn't the only illustrated edition of Demon's Lexicon out there. The Czech edition, published by Zoner Press, has saucy, naked demons. What more could one ask for?

Please tell me you'll also be doing an HP7 parody! I look forward to those almost as much as the movies themselves!! Lizzy xx

No, I won't! I haven't seen the movie, so it'd be tricky. ;) I'm sorry to disappoint!

OMG gorgeous illustrations. Mucha/Art Nouveau-esque! ♥

(P.S. I totally misread Zoner Press as "Boner Press", which wasn't helped by the fact it was followed by "saucy, naked demons". Whatever, it's my first day back in the office and I was photocopying sex scenes.

...for work! FOR WORK, I SWEAR.)

Ooh! Lovely illustrations. And I love your "Team Team" post :0)

Oh, & it's in a locked note on FB (so no linkage), but I def. said TDC was my favorite book of '10! Team Mae FTW!

I have always been jealous that grown up books didn't come with illustrations, now I am just jealous of the Ukrainians for whom they apparently do! They're excellent and look a bit like Mucha having had a little absinthe.

Do the Dawntreader parody! You're parodies are excellent! *bounces*

I want all of those posts! No fair making me choose. In order: Demon's Surrender, the Bad Feminist one, favorite couples, and the Dawn Treader (partly because I want to see the movie before I read your parody).

Wow, those are gorgeous! I'm curious, though- is the first picture one of Olivia? Those choices all sound fantastic, but I'm going to have to go for Surrender and the Bad Feminist one.

I'm not totally sure, actually! Either Olivia or Liannan would be my guess.

I often see you in terms of Good Feminism, which is an excellent thing to be involved in. But we've all had times where we have not been good feminists. I am curious about yours.

I can wait for Surrender. No teasers are going to match the actual book, so I'll just read it in May. I vote for Feminism.

Those are gorgeous. I'm not entirely sure what they all are, but they're lovely and very cool.

PS: I failed to say this on the appropriate post, but thank you very much for the Christmas present! It was great fun and very sweet, and I love reading all the different perspectives you write for these characters. Every time I read a new POV, I want EVERYTHING to be from theirs, which probably just means you're doing an excellent job picking. :D Sin is going to be very interesting - looking forward to it!

You're very welcome! I'm glad you like them, and that you like the pictures.

I for one am very anxious to hear this super-secret news you have been hinting at! But seeing as that seems to be a thing not determined by you when it can be told.. My vote would be for the Bad Feminist post and/or the favorite couples post!

These are fantastic illustrations. So hauntingly lovely they give me the tingles. :)

I was just wondering where you've been! Mostly because I recently posted my books of the year post where you show up like five times in it (okay, actually two times: once because Demon's Covenant came in at #3 on the 2010 list-- which is REALLY GOOD for this list, I assure you-- and once to point out that your Mystery Books recommendations were awesome and helped me discover Sayers).

I think I might just love your Dawn Treader post best of all those suggestions, but they all sound full of potential.

And the drawings are gorgeous. I love pen-and-ink.

I am pleased DC was liked, and thrilled to turn anyone onto Sayers. ;)

OMG your icon. Who made it? Can I steal it?

Looking forward to Times You Have Been A Bad Feminist and Demon's Surrender and the news you will be able to tell us soon. :)

I think it was laliandra? I was like marmalade_fish but then realised that is a community. ;)

I will be able to tell one piece of news on MONDAY!

There's always room for feminism, baby.

Nice illustrations!
