Corsets & Clockwork Anthology ARC!

Now this is just the most perfect Valentine's Day gift ever. Today I opened my mailbox and found the ARC for Corsets & Clockwork, the YA Steampunk Romance anthology I contributed a story for!

It looks great, and is quite substantial. Added bonus, my good friend Lesley Livingston has her name on the cover!

So here's the ARC:

And here's the beginning of my story "The Clockwork Corset":


And of course because I know you're all as excited about this as I am, the link to buy it at Amazon :) .

Doug A Scott said...

Awesome, indeed. I have suggested that the Greater Victoria Public Library purchase this. Pretty sure they will.

I've seen that lovely cover around AW. It looks terrific, and I absolutely love that title.

I'm curious - did you name your story before or after the anthology had its name? How awesome would it be to have your story inspire the name of the whole collection?

Adrienne said...

And thanks again!

Doug - ooh awesome! Thanks for that!

Josin - lol, that would be awesome, but alas it was the other way around. The deadline for the story was looming and I just couldn't lock onto an idea I wanted to write about. Then I realised just how compelling I found the title of the anthology itself (it had a title from the very beginning). And I decided I wanted to use the title as inspiration. I joked with Lesley (who I mentioned in the blog post) about just calling my story "Corsets & Clockwork" :) , but she wisely suggested "The Clockwork Corset". So that's the tale behind that.
