I’ve been sitting on this for a month

I’ve worked with Ekaterina Sedia (squirrel_monkey) twice before, on “Comparison of Efficacy Rates for Seven Antipathetics As Employed Against Lycanthropes” (in Running with the Pack) and “Coyotaje” (in Bewere the Night). Now that I have the go-ahead, I’m delighted to say that I have sold her a third story, this one without any shapeshifters in it whatsoever: “False Colours,” a novelette in her upcoming anthology of YA Victorian romance, Wilful Impropriety: 13 Tales of Society and Scandal.

You can read more about the anthology here. The table of contents looks pretty awesome:

  • 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
  • THE GARDEN OF ENGLAND by Sandra McDonald
  • 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

As for “False Colours”? Well, a select few among you may recall a certain character named Lt. Ravenswood . . . yeah, this is that story. The rest of you will have to wait and read it for yourself — I wouldn’t want to spoil anything!

I’ll post a release date when I have one.

      If it weren’t for the fact that I dislike reading too much on screen, I might devour the whole thing in the page-proof pdf stage. πŸ™‚
