05/07/2003 Entry: "Wen Spencer's TINKER"
Just posted on the Wen Spencer site is the cover for TINKER, which is coming out in November 2003 from Baen Books. The cover is from great SF artist Bob Eggleton.
"Inventor, girl genius Tinker lives in a near-future Pittsburgh which now exists mostly in the land of the elves. She runs her salvage business, pays her taxes, and tries to keep the local ambient level of magic down with gadgets of her own design. When a pack of wargs chase an Elven noble into her scrap yard, life as she knows it takes a serious detour. Tinker finds herself taking on the Elfin court, the NSA, the Elfin Interdimensional Agency, technology smugglers and a college-minded Xenobiologist as she tries to stay focused on what’s really important – her first date. Armed with an intelligence the size of a planet, steel toed boots, and a junk yard dog attitude, Tinker is ready to kick butt to get her first kiss."

Based on the snippets, Tinker's going for more than just her first kiss. This is definitely SFR with a romance element that's a lot stronger than the one in her Ukiah Oregon books.
