Prudence Cover & The Fashion To Go With It


My book, Prudence, is currently on sale for only $4.99 (ebook USA). In honor of that, Fashionable reader, I'm posting a fun thing I used to do a lot - outfits that match the cover!

I had to put this image first, because it is such a perfect match to the colors of the cover. It's an 1870s  dress from Kerry Taylor Auctions. I'm not sure which of my characters might wear something so exotic, this period would place it during the Parasol Protectorate series. So perhaps Ivy?

And now, looking at the cover here's some more picks...

Gail Carriger's Game: Spot That Outfit in Imprudence Answer!


So a little while ago I blogged about Rue wearing the following outfit in Imprudence. I asked you, Fashionable Reader, to tell me which chapter in order to win a special goodie box (winner was randomly chosen from all correct answers). The winner, Michelle, has been notified and confirmed her address so her box is in the mail.

The answer?

Rue wears this outfit in Chapter 10: Egypt
