Coming February 26, 2015 the anthology that I love love love! Avast, Ye Airships!, Edited by Rie Sheridan Rose.
I love even more that I actually did make it in!
Why the vote of no confidence in myself?
Steampunk is a genre that I came to a few years ago. Rie, actually, is the one who suggested Gail Carringer to me, and it was love at first read. But it’s not especially in my wheelhouse, writing wise. I’ve never attempted anything other than traditional fantasy or paranormal/urban fantasy. And on the last, I just finished the first complete manuscript.
So. We have a sub-genre that I love, but am wholly intimidated by. How does a poor writer deal with that?
One of the things I have been really wanting to do was a tribute to The Secret Garden by Frances Hogson Burnett. Not a straight retelling, but more of a nod to a story that meant so much to me growing up. Since receiving my first copy (coughcough) years ago, I have never been without it. It speaks to me.
I know you’re going to love it!
And that cover! Swoon!
I will try to get my fellow pirates to come over and play with us, too!
Say it with me now… “Ahoy, ye mateys!”
Argh! I couldn’t resist *big grin*
Talk to you soon, my lovelies!
