Win an ARC of FORETOLD edited by Carrie Ryan
Guess what I got in the mail yesterday?
An advance reader’s copy of Foretold: 14 Stories of Prophecy and Prediction edited by Carrie Ryan! This anthology, which includes my short story “One True Love,” will be published by Delacorte on August 28, 2012. Some of my favorite authors are in the anthology: Laini Taylor! Diana Peterfreund! Meg Cabot! I’m so excited to be in their company.
Here’s a sneak peek at the first paragraph of my tale, “One True Love”:
“It is never lucky for a child to kill her mother in the course of her own birth. Perhaps for this reason, the soothsayer who attended the naming ceremony for Princess Essylt was not a celebrated one. Haidis had barely finished his own apprenticeship when the summons came. He knew that delivering the prophecy for this princess was a thankless job, because no soothsayer in his right mind would attempt to foretell the life of a girl-child born out of death.”
Would you like a chance to read the anthology early? Then enter the giveaway below.
Fine print: The winner must be able to provide a valid U.S. mailing address to receive the ARC. I’m unable to ship internationally. The deadline is July 31, 2012.
