My Victorian romance story, "Mrs Beeton's Book of Magickal Management", is to be published in September in the excellent anthology Wilful Impropriety, edited by Ekaterina Sedia (!), introduced by Scott Westerfeld (!!) and including such luminaries as Mary Robinette Kowal, Marie Brennan, and Caroline Stevermer (!!!!!).

I am excite, Internets, for, as I confided to you, it has long been my ambition to sell a short story, and lo, it has been realised!

Also I got to write a romance, always awesome, with an absent-minded scholar, and a beautiful noblewoman, and not at all beautiful but very resourceful maid and a good-tempered gentleman. (Not all at once, although there would be nothing wrong with that, especially in a collection of stories about breaking boundaries and defying social norms, but I did something else.) Also, desperate villainy and crucial magic!

This is the cover:

Is it not beauteous? I love it. Especially since the lady is wearing dark makeup, so SCANDALOUS. Why, I bet she's not even wearing a corset!
