Can she write a world gone wrong?

A certain pen, a certain book, and a certain person can craft entirely new worlds through a branch of science called scriptology. Elsa comes from one such world that was written into creation by her mother—a noted scriptologist.

But when her home is attacked and her mother abducted, Elsa must cross into the real world and use her own scriptology gifts to find her. In an alternative 19th-century Italy, Elsa finds a secret society of pazzerellones—young people with a gift for mechanics, alchemy or scriptology—and meets Leo, a gorgeous mechanist with a smart mouth and a tragic past. She recruits the help of these fellow geniuses just as an assassin arrives on their doorstep.

In this thrilling debut, worlds collide as Elsa unveils a deep political conspiracy seeking to unlock the most dangerous weapon ever created—and only she can stop it.

But does it really matter? To me personally, nope, nope and nope! BECAUSE HELLO Italy one of the places on my bucket list. Behold one of many reasons why I love reading. I get to visit places on my bucket list. But even better than that. This book is set in Nineteenth-century Italy!

About Gwendolyn Clare

I’m Gwendolyn Clare, and I write fantasy and science fiction. My debut young-adult steampunk novel — INK, IRON, AND GLASS — is forthcoming from Macmillan/Imprint (Feb 20th, 2018). My short fiction has appeared in Clarkesworld, Asimov’s, Analog, Fantasy & Science Fiction, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and my poetry has been nominated for the Rhysling Award. I’m represented by Jennifer Azantian of Azantian Literary Agency.

I’m a New Englander transplanted to central Pennsylvania, with long stops in Chicago and North Carolina along the way. I have a BA in Ecology, a BS in Geophysics, and a PhD in Mycology, which completes my acronym collection (for now, at least). I love the fieldwork aspect of being a scientist, and I’ve been lucky enough to work in awesome places like Italy, Australia, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Guyana.

I enjoy practicing martial arts, adopting feral cats, and overstaying my welcome in local coffee shops while writing. I’m still in the market for a cybernetic left arm, though my rotator cuff seems to have forgiven me for past transgressions and started functioning properly again.

  1. I found it on Netgalley but it would be a nice book to have physically bc of its pretty “placeholder” cover! (I can’t believe THAT IS A PLACEHOLDER!!)
    I can’t wait to read it. It sounds so good!
