Anthology Announcement! I'm SO EXCITED to be included in this collection!
Reposted from EKATERINA SEDIA's Blog:
"I am extremely pleased to announce the project that’s been under wraps so far: I am editing an anthology for Constable&Robinson, WILFUL IMPROPRIETY: 13 Tales of Society and Scandal (to be published in the US by Running Press). I will post the cover as soon as it is available, but for now, enjoy the ToC:
Introduction by Ekaterina Sedia
THE DANCING MASTER by Genevieve Valentine
THE UNLADYLIKE EDUCATION OF AGATHA TREMAIN by Stephanie Burgis
AT WILL by Leanna Renee Hieber
STEEPED IN DEBT TO THE CHIMNEY POTS by Steve Berman
OUTSIDE THE ABSOLUTE by Seth Cadin
RESURRECTION by Tiffany Trent
MRS BEETON’S BOOK OF MAGICKAL MANAGEMENT by Karen Healey

FALSE COLOURS by Marie Brennan
NUSSBAUM’S GOLDEN FORTUNE by M. K. Hobson
THE COLONEL’S DAUGHTER by Barbara Roden
MERCURY RETROGRADE by Mary Robinette Kowal
THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS by Caroline Stevermer
I am really pleased about this one, even though YA is not something I do a lot of. But here’s an excerpt from my intro anyway! “Recently we saw a great rise in both Victorian and Young
Adult categories of ﬁction, and to me these two go hand inhand. If being a teenager is about disobedience, the notion of Victoriana (at least the way it is perceived by a modern reader)
is often centered around propriety and convention, rigid social structures, and impermeable class, race and gender barriers. Yet, where there is convention, there is also deﬁance, and the opposite side of this Victorian coin is the realization that as long as there are barriers and conventions, there will be those who will rise up against them.”"

SO THRILLED! As soon as we've a cover and release details in UK / US I'll post it all. I'm in such wonderful company!
And so excited to see my authorial niche being featured in such a way!
"At Will" features a talented teenage Shakespearean actress who gets caught up in a gender experiment of epic proportions on the Victorian London stage...
More to come! I've another anthology announcement I hope to share soon!
