Hellebore and Rue: Cover and TOC Announcement!

Cover of Hellbore and Rue Anthology
Drollerie Press just announced the cover of their upcoming anthology, “Hellebore and Rue.” Isn’t it gorgeous? I love the eye-catching color of the woman’s hair on the stark black, white and gray background.

The anthology is due out in mid-October…and I’ve got a story in it!

(And, look! My name’s on the cover!)

My story, Sky Lit Bargains, is about a woman who is forced to leave her home or face the repeated, escalating sexual advances of her new brother-in-law. Trained for warfare, rather than domesticity, Sigrid crosses the channel to her Uncle Gervais’ keep and makes a bargain with him to kill the wyvern plaguing his lands. Her plans go awry when she’s followed by her best friend (and sorceress) and her brother-in-law’s guards…

I’ll post an excerpt once I get a go-ahead from Drollerie.
