So you know how I have five anthologies coming out this year? No? Maybe you don’t, because I’m super behind on blogging and such.
Anyway, I do. This is a big year for short stories. (Because you guys don’t even know about all of them yet. Mwahaha.)
The first of these to hit the market was Brave New Love, with my story, “Foundlings.”
Here are two of the others:
Cast of Characters, ed. by Lou Aronica (The Story Plant, April 3, 2012)
We love fiction. It’s in our blood and it’s in our souls. Great stories thrill us and inspire us in a way that nothing else can. If you’re like us, then we invite you to revel in this anthology of all-original stories we’ve created for you.
In CAST OF CHARACTERS, you’ll meet a collection of unforgettable personalities. The devoted wife who discovers her husband’s devastating secret. The Black Death survivor who reinvents herself. The woman who finds love in the arms of a dark, dangerous artist. The devoted scientist faced with a daunting ethical dilemma. The woman who hears ghosts. The gorgeous but fated young man. The small-town beauty queen with a world-class mean streak. The inventor who fears his invention. The man seeking a reunion decades later with his first love. The stalker who understands too late who he is stalking. The dreadful athlete who gets one opportunity to win. The man who loves a woman society will not allow him to love. These are only a few of the figures who will leap from the page and take residence in your heart.
A huge volume of twenty-eight stories ranging from romance to suspense to fantasy to comedy to poignant character pieces, CAST OF CHARACTERS is a must-have book for everyone who loves fiction. All stories are by members of Novelists, Inc., the only writers organization devoted exclusively to the needs of multi-published novelists. This is our first anthology.

Foretold: 14 Stories of Prophecy and Prediction (Random House, September, 25, 2012)
It’s human nature to wonder about life’s twists and turns. But is the future already written—or do you have the power to alter it?
From fantastical prophecies to predictions of how the future will transpire, Foretold is a collection of stories about our universal fascination with life’s unknowns and of what is yet to come as interpreted by 14 of young adult fiction’s brightest stars.
A Note on Diana’s Contribution, “Burned Bright”: This one is a bit of a departure for me. It’s about a girl and a guy and the end of the world.
