Looking Ahead: A Tyranny of Petticoats Cover Reveal

So yesterday USA Today Life revealed the cover to A Tyranny of Petticoats: 15 Stories of Belles, Bank Robbers & Other Badass Girls. I am so ecstatic about this anthology not only because there are some amazing authors contributing but the anthology is a collection of historical fiction and fantasy featuring some fierce females. I love historical fiction and fantasy so this anthology is definitely right up my alley.


From an impressive sisterhood of YA writers comes an edge-of-your-seat anthology of historical fiction and fantasy featuring a diverse array of daring heroines.

Criss-cross America — on dogsleds and ships, stagecoaches and trains — from pirate ships off the coast of the Carolinas to the peace, love, and protests of 1960s Chicago. Join fifteen of today’s most talented writers of young adult literature on a thrill ride through history with American girls charting their own course. They are monsters and mediums, bodyguards and barkeeps, screenwriters and schoolteachers, heiresses and hobos. They're making their own way in often-hostile lands, using every weapon in their arsenals, facing down murderers and marriage proposals. And they all have a story to tell.

Are you looking forward to reading A Tyranny of Petticoats? What authors are you most excited about?


  1. Oh man. I don't do a lot of anthologies because I typically find them uneven in quality, but that is one great lineup. And the concept is basically written for me. Thanks for bringing this one to my attention--it had completely slipped my notice.

    1. I am picky about anthologies for the same reason you stated above and I hope this one is promising.
