OH LOOK A SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM I HAVEN'T CAPSLOCKED ON YET

HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS HOLY SHIT

So Lois spake unto us: http://www.goodreads.com/author_blog_posts/8046824-new-book

I am pleased to report that a new Cordelia Vorkosigan novel has been sold to Baen Books for publication, tentatively, in February of 2016.

The title is Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen.


GENTLEMAN. JOLE. AND THE RED QUEEN.

GENTLEMAN JOLE.

MY BB IS IN THE TITLE OF THE BOOK YOU GUYS I CAN'T EVEN. WHAT. AHHHHHHHH. I THOUGHT I WAS WRITING AN UNJOSSABLE PAIRING AND NOW I REALLY REALLY NEED TO GO WRITE 7 1/2 MORE STORIES BEFORE NEXT FEBRUARY.

:DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

(Also I am in this weird place where on the one hand I am going to find it totally baffling to encounter a non-queer Jole (I mean, I'm going to find it totally baffling to encounter a Jole who's not Arkady, there is a lot of bafflement coming my way) but at the same time I am super prepared to ship the queen and her knight? AHHHHH I AM EXCITE THOUGH OMG NEW CORDELIA BOOK AND IT IS ALSO A JOLE BOOK OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG.)

I am so looking forward to 7 1/2 more stories from you about them!

OMG!!!!

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS A REAL THING AND NOT A MADE-UP THING! IT'S JUST SO AWESOME! CORDELIA! JOLE! SO SO MANY GOOD THINGS ALL AT ONCE!

It is indeed gonna be super weird that he's not called Arkady, though, gonna have to adjust to that. Like any time I encounter anything involving someone called Arkady I think of Jole. So.

BUT HIM AND CORDELIA HANGIN' OUT AND GENERALLY BEIN' IN A BOOK TOGETHER. WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

You're the first person I thought of when I saw the title.

You may or may not get a kick out of this (I thought it was pretty funny) but when I Googled 'Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen' this post was the fifth item in the search results. I was only Googling it b/c of this post . . . :D

You're famous on the internet! Or at least Google!

Soooooooooo is there an opposite of "jossed"?

If not, maybe it should be "joled"? :-D
