The other big news is that I am the producer of and one of the writers on season 1 of Tremontaine, a 13-episode serial that is a prequel to Ellen Kushner's Swordspoint. Ellen, along with Malinda Lo, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Joel Derfner, Patty Bryant, and myself have created a series about the the rise of Diane, Duchess Tremontaine. The series also features Kaab, a foreign spy who is part of the city's merchant class; Micah, a farm girl who really, really likes math; and Rafe, a scholar who wants to change the world and irritate as many people as possible while doing it.
Swords, chocolate, and (generally quite queer) sex abound.
