"Waiting On" Wednesday (4)

Okay, so this is super duper in advance, but it segues nicely into some news I've been meaning to tell ya'll.

I'm eagerly awaiting SHADES OF MILK AND HONEY by Mary Robinette Kowal which releases from TOR . . . sometime in 2010. Kowal announced the sell a little over a week ago and refers to it as her "Jane Austen with magic novel." She explains in the comments, "It aims to be the novel that Jane Austen would write if she lived in a world where magic actually worked. I would read a chapter of Persuasion and then write a chapter of this."

Does that not sound wicked awesome?

(This fab picture of her was taken by Patrick Nielsen Hayden.)

So, ya'll are thinking, what does that have to do with you? Just that I have no clue what will happen to this blog in July since I'll be in ENGLAND studying JANE AUSTEN and SHAKESPEARE. That's right. ENGLAND. I'm so excited. I've never left the country before and I cannot wait. I'm already planning to explore some of the rest of Europe too. (Did I mention I'm going to England?)

*I should also mention she has a collection of stories, SCENTING THE DARK, coming out from the quality folks at Subterranean Press this November.


  1. (Thank you for the shout-out!)

    Sooooo excited for you about England. While you are there, you absolutely must go to Lyme-Regis, which Jane much preferred to Bath. Part of the action in Persuasion happens there, but it's also known for the ammonite pavement.

  2. Part of the program is a day long trip to Lyme-Regis! ^_^

  3. Hooray for England and Shakespeare!!! That's way exciting! You're staying the whole month of July?!

    I'm curious about Shades of Milk and Honey - but 2010?! That's a long ways away!

  4. Jane Austen with magic? I'm intrigued. Have a wonderful time in England!
