It’s beautiful cover madness around here! Look at this gorgeous, gorgeous cover for ENTHRALLED. ENTHRALLED is a collection of short stories–and my short story, Leaving, is a part of it!

I am very thrilled to have been able to contribute to this collection. Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong are the editors, and they were so wonderful to work with. I haven’t read any of the other stories, but I can’t wait to do so! I feel very honored to have had a chance to do this. It’s been such a thrill for me.

The short story I contributed takes place in the future (again) but in a different future than the one that is the setting for the MATCHED series. My two main characters are named Sora and Elio, and I won’t say much more about what happens to them except:

1. Leaving is my husband’s favorite thing I’ve ever written.

2. There is a fancy formal event in the story. Apparently I like that, because MATCHED had a banquet and this has…well, you’ll have to read to find out.

I really loved writing this short story and am very grateful to Kelley and Melissa for giving me the chance.

ENTHRALLED will be released on September 20 of this year. Click here for more info.

    I’ve already pre-ordered it :). What a beautiful cover! Is it designed specifically for one of the stories or is it just general? Looking forward to reading this :).

  • I don’t normally buy anthologies, but with all the amazing authors who have been blogging about being in this one, I might just have to!

    Congratulations on being included with such a stellar cast–and a lovely cover to boot!

    Ooh, I can’t wait for this one, too, along with Crossed! I’m so excited for fall! I really like the long, straight path in front of her…mysterious and enticing.
