I'm wearing my happy face!
Last week I finally found out what the powers-that-be at Harlequin's digital-first imprint, Carina Press, were going to name my holiday steampunk romance. I was a bit nervous, thinking that while my editor knew the project, a whole group of people who haven't read it might not "get" the overall vibe going on with my story. After all, I took a little walk on the wild side and made the female MC a daring, ingenious cat burglar, when that's usually a role left to the male MC.
Would they get it? Would they understand? Heh. You tell me. The title for my steampunk holiday romance is *drumroll*:
CRIME WAVE IN A CORSET
Squeeee! They took this title from direct dialog! So, yeah. I'm thinking they understood the vibe, and decided to run with it. It's going to be out December 6th of THIS YEAR, and I'm already through the first round of edits. Next up will be figuring out the cover art.
Hmmm. With a title like that, I wonder what the powers-that-be will decide to put on the front of this latest book? Could it be... a corset??? :D
