See, this is why they should have asked one of the librarians.

'Cause we could have figured out that pun in like…less than a minute, for reals.

when making criminal arrests in the library please ask a librarian for assistance.

There ya go.

Where are all the body positive white feminists at? This post has like no notes. I wonder why….

Because there is nothing we can say in the face of this woman’s courage and accomplishment.  She ought to be allowed to say it and take pride in it on her own, without us taking up her light.

I'm going as Lilac Laroux for Halloween! Any advice on the makeup, hair and outfit. By the way LOOOOOOVVVVEEEEE The Skylark Books! It's on my top three favourite books of all time! You are my inspiration. You inspire me to write! Because of you i had written a trilogy (which i will never publish 😂) and a contemporary novel. Love You!! Xx

Aww, YAY! That is AWESOME. Okay, so if I were to go as Lilac I’d hit up my local thrift stores looking for a green evening gown. Of course, she wears other colors pre-crash, but that’s the outfit she spends most of her time in. I’d wear the gown and then a pair of work boots (the ones Tarver finds for her). If you’ve already got red hair, you’re good to go there—if not, grab a wig or some temporary dye. Any style is fine! If it were me I’d stick some twigs and leaves in my hair too from tromping through the woods. ;) And makeup… depends. If you’re going pre-crash (which means no boots) then dramatic smokey eye and red lips is what I picture. But if you’re going post-crash you want more natural, since Lilac post-crash didn’t have makeup with her!

(Take pictures!!!)

You are so sweet… thank you! I’m down with a cold and you’ve absolutely made my day, which, trust me, is hard to do right now!

(And never say never. Stick your trilogy in a drawer somewhere and write something new, and someday you may want to come back to these books and polish them up! At the very least, pat yourself on the back, because writing a trilogy—published or no—is a lot of hard work!)
