Good things today: My Clarion West T-shirt came. Thank you, Neile and Lesley (the androgynously-named duo!) and all the wonderful students for one of the best weeks of my life.

Also, oh, look. Flap copy! And a pub date--Bone & Jewel Creatures will be available in March of 2010.

And a cover artist--the artwork will be by Maurizio Manzieri. I'm thrilled.

 Dark magic is afoot in the City of Jackals...

Eighty years Bijou the Artificer has been a Wizard of Messaline, building her servants from precious scraps, living with the memory of a great love that betrayed her. She is ready to rest.

But now her former apprentice, Brazen the Enchanter, has brought her a speechless feral child poisoned by a sorcerous infection. Now, Messaline is swept by a mysterious plague. Now the seeping corpses of the dead stalk the streets.

Now, finally, Bijou's old nemesis--Bijou's old love--Kaulas the Necromancer is unleashing a reeking half-death on Bijou's people. And only Bijou and her creatures wrought of bone and jewels can save the City of Jackals from his final revenge.

Yes, I wrote you a book made of steampunk and shambling undead.

I hope you're happy. ;-)
