Shanghai Steam

Release date: November, 2012

 Very excited. Yep, that’s the description of my current state of mind. I can finally announce that Shanghai Steam – an anthology of Steampunk/Wuxia stories is going to be published… and NOT just the anthology… but my story as well…

If you read the summary above, they’ve included a little nod to my plot, but I’m not telling you which one… you’ll just have to read it for yourselves.

I would really like to thank Ace Jordyn for all of her help and attention… a wonderful editor and I hope we’ll have many other occasions to work together…

Thanks go all my friends and family that cheered me on through the long nights and the revision process…

  1. Congratulations. I’m looking forward to reading your story. My own short story, “Moon-Flame Woman” will be in “Shanghai Steam,” as well. Will you be at World Con or World Fantasy Con this year? I’d love to meet you.

      Ah, Laurel Anne… I’d love to be there… I’m in Hawaii, so it’s a little tough for me… I have a friend going to World Con… do you have a table there?
