The Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions anthology
is releasing two weeks from today, in both paperback and hardcover! Edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong, the anthology that sprung from last year's Smart Chicks Kick It Tour is almost in our hands.
Besides Melissa and Kelley, there are fourteen other fabulous authors in this collection (well, thirteen, plus me). Here's the complete list:
Sarah Rees Brennan
Mary E. Pearson
Jennifer Lynn Barnes
I KNOW, right?! \O.O/
I was ecstatic to get the opportunity to contribute, not only to be part of such a stellar group, but also to tell Logan
)'s story. He's pretty psyched about it, too.
"Bridge" takes place within the timeframe of Shift (between chapters 21 and 22), but it deals with Logan and his brother Mickey and not so much Aura (though she makes an appearance). So it can be read without having read Shift or even Shade first without being too spoilery.
"Bridge" is honestly one of my favorite, if not my favorite, thing I've ever written, so I hope you check it out, even though it's not a love story, or even if you're 100% Team Zachary. I feel that the Shade series isn't truly complete without "Bridge."
(And if you are Team Zach, don't worry. He'll get his own gut-wrenching story, tentatively titled "Shattered," after the May 1 release of Shine
If you would like a signed (by just me, sorry) copy of Enthralled
, you can order from Constellation Books
. Mention in the comments on the online order form how you would like it personalized or if you just want a signature. Or visit the Enthralled page
here on my website for links to buy non-signed copies.
To celebrate the release of Enthralled, I'll be doing interviews and giveaways the week of September 19. The usual schtuff.
You may remember that I promised if Zachary
received 5,000 votes in the final round of the YA Crush Tournament, I would write the lyrics to "Forever," the song Logan sings for Aura alone near the end of Shade
, the song he planned to sing for her the night he died.
I'll unveil the lyrics on September 20, the release date for Enthralled. And possibly, if all the stars align, there'll be a leeeeetle something extra to go with it.
And I'm told that certain other folks might have a special creative unveiling as well.
Until then, please enjoy and employ this countdown widget at your leisure. Watch what happens at midnight eastern on the 20th!
