CORSETS & CLOCKWORK Anthology!

Hey guys!

I just got back from five fabulous, fun-filled days in New York City!! And I am preparing an epic blog post about the whole adventure (which was wholly adventurous, let me tell you!). But, in the meantime, check out the beautifulness, below!

I have a story in this upcoming YA Steampunk Romance anthology: CORSETS & CLOCKWORK (Running Press Kids, May 10, 2011), and they just released the gorgeous cover art!

Isn’t it lovely??!!

And check out the truly awesome line up of authors! Info courtesy of SciFiGuy.ca (by way of Adrienne Kress‘s blog):

A stunning anthology of the very best of steampunk that’s taking teen fiction by storm. Bestselling romance editor Trisha Telep brings an exciting new element to the fast-growing sub-genre of steampunk, which bends and blends the old and the new in increasingly popular dark urban fantasies. Young heroes and heroines battle evil, in various forms with the help of super-technological or supernatural powers, while falling in and out of love. Contributors include:

* Ann Aguirre a bestselling author who writes urban fantasy (the Corine Solomon series from Roc), romantic science fiction (the Jax series from Ace), apocalyptic paranormal romance (as Ellen Connor, writing with Carrie Lofty, from Penguin), paranormal romantic suspense (as Ava Gray from Berkley), and post-apocalyptic dystopian young adult fiction (Razorland and Wireville coming in 2011 from Feiwel & Friends).

* Tessa Gratton, her debut novel Blood Magic arrives in 2011 from Random House Children’s Books, followed by the companion Crow Magic in 2012.

* Michael Scott is the Irish-born, New York Times bestselling author of the six part epic fantasy series, The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.

* Maria V. Snyder is the New York Times bestselling author of the Study series (Poison Study, Magic Study, and Fire Study) about a young woman forced to become a poison taster.

* Tiffany Trent the author of the acclaimed YA dark fantasy series Hallowmere, which was an IndieBound Children’s Pick and a New York Public Library Book of the Teen Age 2008.
