Fellow Octopus Friends

My sister first started reading Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series on the flight home from BlogHer last year, so I’m a little late to the party, but we were thrilled to get to meet Gail this week at her book signing.

There’s a recurring octopus motif in her books, so what better than to bring my favorite octopus to meet her too! Here’s O-pus in the car.

She wore a charming vintage dress, hat and gloves, and read from the latest episode of the series - a comedy of Victorian manners mixed with steampunk and werewolves and vampires. During the Q&A, she promised that there would be more octopuses in the upcoming book. Yay!

At first glance I thought you meant that O-pus wore the charming vintage dress! I need to slow down.

Nice pic with Gail and your octopus.
Need to have her sign the pic. Wonder if you can do this on the iPad?
