I'm excited to announce that I'm contributing a short story to the just-announced YA horror anthology, Slasher Girls & Monster Boys, coming Fall 2015 from Dial/Penguin. The collaboration is the brainchild of fellow horror-writing Oregonian April Genevieve Tucholke, author of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, and I am thrilled to bits to be a part of the project.
The official Publishers Weekly announcement:
Jessica Garrison at Dial bought world rights at auction to a YA horror anthology, Slasher Girls & Monster Boys. The collection features a large number of authors, including April Tucholke, Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Kami Garcia, Carrie Ryan, Nova Ren Suma, A.G. Howard, Cat Winters, Stefan Bachman, Jay Kristoff, Kendare Blake, McCormick Templeman, and Megan Shepherd, and tells tales of gritty girls fighting back, seeking revenge, and claiming their victims. Publication is planned for fall 2015; Joanna Volpe at New Leaf Literary & Media brokered the deal for world rights.
We're keeping mum about our individual stories for now, but I'll post more info as soon as we can share details.
Speaking of YA horror, I gave my two cents on the topic in a recent CNN.com article.
