Good morning! It’s finally that time – time for our very last “Ask the Author” Q&A with Lauren and wrapping up our year of reading the Pink series.
What are your questions about Jane and Jack, Colin and Eloise, Aunt Arabella, or anyone else from the Pink books? Is there something you have always wanted to know about Parsnip Fitzhugh, or are you dying to ask about the big revelation regarding Nicolas in the Reader’s Guide?
Leave your questions in the Comments section below, and Lauren will pop by throughout the day to answer them.
Once again, our benevolent Pink Fairy has agreed to gift a Pink XII mug to a lucky comment-writer today (the mug designed, as ever, by Miss Eliza – go check out Zazzle to see the full garden of mugs she created for Pink for All Seasons!).
So for one last time, thanks again to Lauren for agreeing to hang out with us today! I can’t wait to hear your questions – they are probably very similar to my own.
Good morning, and happy Friday!
First things first: Congratulations to Beth F., the winner of a signed copy of The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla! Beth, if you will email me at email@example.com, I will get your prize in the mail to you ASAP.
And now it is time for our penultimate Ask the Author day. Lauren will drop by throughout the afternoon to answer your questions about Sally, Lucien, assorted Fitzhughs, and Pink XI. As always, a Pink mug will be given to one lucky commenter on today’s post. Here is the design for this month, created by the fabulous Miss Eliza:
Remember, the Pink for All Seasons mugs are all available for purchase on Zazzle.
So “Sally” forth and ask your questions! (See what I did there?) Lauren, thanks again for spending time with us today.
Alright – Miss Gwen had her chance to ask the author of the Pink Carnation series her questions. Now it’s your opportunity! What do you want to know about William, Gwen, and the revelation that Colin is descended from the Selwicks AND the Meadows-Reids? Lauren has graciously agreed to pop by today and answer any questions that you leave in the comments section. So ask away! But form a line and keep things orderly, or Miss Gwen will be reigning us in with that parasol of hers.
As always, the Pink Fairy will be awarding a lucky commenter on today’s post with a themed Pink X mug.
Thanks again to Lauren for hanging out with us, and to all of you for the Pink love and enthusiasm.
Lauren is returning today, in her glory and benevolence, for another round of Ask the Author. What questions do you have about Augustus and Emma? What do you want to know about the lost treasure of Berar? Have you always wondered how Lauren knew Miss Gwen would make an excellent pirate? Now is your chance to get answers – leave your questions in the Comments section, and Lauren will stop by periodically to answer them.
The Pink Fairy has a gift for a commenter on today’s post – a Pink IX mug, designed by Miss Eliza!
If you would like to see all the mugs designed for Pink for All Seasons, they can be viewed and purchased on Zazzle.
Happy questioning, and enjoy our last day celebrating Pink IX. On Monday, we begin The Passion of the Purple Plumeria!
It may be a dreary Thursday (not sure how the weather is where you are, but it’s pretty ominous-looking outside my window), but I’m going to focus on The Orchid Affair and keep visualizing a spring day in the French countryside!
Today, Lauren is returning for another round of Ask the Author. What questions do you have about Miss Laura Grey, Andre Jouen, and the rest of the Pink VIII crew? Post your questions in the comments section, and Lauren will pop by later this afternoon to answer them.
As always, the Pink Fairy has a gift for a lucky commenter today. The prize is a Pink VIII mug designed by Miss Eliza. Et voilà:
Want to see the mugs for all the books we’ve read so far? They are all available on Zazzle.
Go forth and ask your questions, good readers! And happy last-day-of Pink VIII to one and all.
Good morning and happy Monday!
Today, Lauren is returning for another round of Ask the Author. Do you have questions about Alex and Penelope? Did this book inspire your curiosity about Jack Reid? Is there something you have always wanted to know about the Indian setting for this installment of the Pink series?
Now is your chance to ask! Leave your questions in the comments section below, and Lauren will answer them throughout the day.
One lucky commenter will receive a Blood Lily mug, courtesy of the Pink Fairy. (If you’d like to see the mugs for each of the books we have read so far, they are all available through Zazzle.)
Thanks again to Lauren for hanging out with us today.
Hello, everyone! Thanks to all of you who contributed quotes and voted for your favorite for Pink VI. I am happy to report that the winning quote is this one:
“Nothing had gone the way it was supposed to. An actor played the King, the King played the fool, and Charlotte – his own, sweet, unworldly Charlotte – abandoned her tower to rout her dragons herself.”
Also, the winner of a Pink VI mug is Allie! Allie, if you will email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org, I will make sure your prize gets on its way to you soon. If you’d like a Pink VI mug of your own (or a mug for any of the books we’ve read so far!) you can find them on Zazzle.
Lauren has graciously agreed to return today for Ask the Author VI! Do you have burning questions about Charlotte, Robert, Colin and Eloise? Is there something about The Temptation of the Night Jasmine that you’ve always wanted to know? Now is your chance! Comment on this post with your questions, and Lauren will swing by periodically throughout the day to answer them. Thanks for hanging out with us today, Lauren!
As we wrap up the month of January and prepare for The Temptation of the Night Jasmine, let’s devote one more day to Arabella, Turnip, and all things Mistletoe!
Lauren Willig has graciously agreed to return for another session of “Ask the Author.” If you’ve always wondered to yourself, “Why pudding??” now is your chance to ask. Post your questions in the comments section below, and Lauren will pop by periodically throughout the day to answer them.
Also, the Pink Fairy will be rewarding one lucky commenter today with a Mistletoe-themed mug designed by Miss Eliza:
Isn’t it lovely? You can see the mugs for all the other books as well on Zazzle’s site.
Big thanks to Lauren for sharing her time with us today!
It’s that time again!
Since we’re wrapping up our month of The Seduction of the Crimson Rose, Lauren has agreed to return for another round of Ask the Author. She’ll be popping by throughout the day to answer whatever questions you have about Mary, Vaughn, or anything else Pink IV. Lauren, as always, thank you so much for visiting with us.
We’ll pick up with our rereading on January 1 with The Mischief of the Mistletoe. If you’re confused about the reading order, take a look at this previous post to find out what’s up.
Happy Friday! I hope each of you had a wonderful, restful Thanksgiving. It’s time for Ask the Author again. Lauren has kindly volunteered to check in throughout the day and answer any questions you may have about The Deception of the Emerald Ring.
It’s also time for us to let Lauren know which Pink III quotes won the popularity contest! Lauren, we’ve voted on these, and here are the top three:
- “Patience is only a virtue when there is something worth waiting for.”
- “That’s where you’re wrong. Perfection may be admirable, but it’s not very lovable.”
- “Ever since she fired on that boot manufactory in Calais, Miss Gwen has had difficulty controlling her incendiary impulses.”
There you have it!
Pink Enthusiasts, thanks for voting. Now feel free to ask Lauren your questions in the comments section below – one lucky commenter will receive some Pink III swag!
