Can’t-Wait Wednesday: My Calamity Jane
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.
Welcome to 1876 and a rootin’-tootin’ America bursting with gunslingers, outlaws, and garou.
JANE (a genuine hero-eene)
Calamity’s her name, and garou hunting’s her game—when she’s not starring in Wild Bill’s Traveling Show, that is. She reckons that if a girl wants to be a legend, she should just go ahead and be one.
FRANK (*wolf whistle*)
Frank “the Pistol Prince” Butler is the Wild West’s #1 bachelor. He’s also the best sharpshooter on
both sides of the Mississippi, but he’s about to meet his match. . . .
ANNIE (get your gun!)
Annie Oakley (yep, that Annie) is lookin’ for a job, not a romance, but she can’t deny there’s something about Frank she likes. Really likes. Still, she’s pretty sure that anything he can do,
she can do better.
A HAIRY SITUATION
After a garou hunt goes south and Jane finds a suspicious-like bite on her arm, she turns tail for Deadwood, where there’s been talk of a garou cure. But things ain’t always what they seem—meaning the gang better hightail it after her before they’re a day late and a Jane short.
Why I Can’t Wait:
My Lady Jane was such a fantastically hilarious twist on history and, although I didn’t enjoy it quite as much, My Plain Jane also had fun with the story of Jane Eyre. So I’m really excited to see what these three authors do with My Calamity Jane, especially as not knowing much about Annie Oakley etc means my enjoyment won’t be coloured by any previous knowledge.
