Image of a sailing ship flying through clouds in the background. In the foreground, a grinning pirate captain, in profile, raises their flintlock, and in front of them, a brown-skinned female wizard swings a censer in one hand, while her other hand is outstretched, radiating light. The text on the image reads: Skies of Wonder, Skies of Danger, an Isle of Write Anthology, Edited by John Appel, Jo Miles, and Mary Alexandra Agner.

Elaine just wants to get some formal training as a mage and get a better job, but everything goes wrong during a routine job when the airship she’s on is highjacked by pirates.

If you follow my Twitter, you may already know, but I have a new story forthcoming in Skies of Wonder, Skies of Danger: Stories of Airships, Pirates, and Wizards, which is expected to release on June 14th as an ebook on all major platforms and as a print-on-demand paperback.

Skies of Wonder contains 13 stories of airships, pirates, and wizards (oh my!), including my story, “A Step Out Into the Blue.”

Watch this space and my twitter for more details as the release date approaches!
