Purple Prose

Dear Miz Fitz,
You say in your profile that you are the author of a steamy gothic romance novel called “Wrathlust Hollow,” but when I google it I get nada.  Please explain.

Dear Miffed,
I have indeed written the book in question, which chronicles the adventures of the Mad Countess Ravisha. It will be available as soon as I find a publisher willing to print it in purple ink on deckle-edged pages of genuine calfskin vellum, preferably with a hand-tooled Moroccan leather cover. Also, I am waiting to hear back from J.K. Rowling, Stephanie Meyer, and Daphne DuMaurier, who will be providing laudatory quotes for the back cover. In the meantime, allow me to post a tantalizing glimpse of the manuscript, with a soundtrack by Los Barvos.


  1. Miz Fitz,
    Don't you think your demands are a bit much. I understand font and purple ink but calfskin vellum? We will never be able to read it that way.
