ENTHRALLED available for pre-order!

Just got word that the mostly-Smart Chicks anthology, Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions will be out September 20, 2011 and is now available for pre-order on Amazon. Yay!

You can read more about it on the blog of Melissa Marr, who, along with Kelley Armstrong, edited the anthology. As you can see, it's full of stories by amazing YA paranormal authors. Some of us wrote stories set in the world of our current books, and some wrote stories set in new worlds.

My contribution, "Bridge," is from the point of view of Logan Keeley, the main ghost character in Shade and Shift. I'll talk more about "Bridge" as the release date gets closer, but I will say that writing Logan's story was one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. It meant a lot to me to be able to give Logan his voice directly, without being filtered by Aura.

After all, I did kill the poor dude three chapters into the series. I owed him that much.

I don't often get into reading anthologies - but absolutely can't wait to read this! I totally fell for Logan while reading Shade, and am so excited you chose to write his story.

Thanks, Dee! I knew right from the start as soon as I heard about the anthology, whose story it would be. It was fun (and a little heartbreaking--okay, a lot heartbreaking) to be inside his head for a while. :-)
