The Post-Ensnared novella has a name and a face!

North Texas Teen Book Festival 2015 was a huge success! Fifty-three authors and several thousand readers/volunteers/librarians were in attendance. WOW. 

I had a great day meeting Splintered fans and being on panels with some amazing authors! Here I am on a horror panel with the incomparable Leigh Bardugo, Carrie Ryan, Nova Ren Suma, and April Genevieve Tucholke:

We talked scary movies and books, then discussed our upcoming horror anthology, Slasher Girls & Monster Boys. 


I've read a few of the stories inside, and you're going to want to pick up this little gem. It's filled with all kinds of tantalizing creeptitude.

Anyway, the most exciting time I had all day (other than meeting the fabulous fans--that's always the best part) was revealing the novella's title and cover! My good pal, Jenny Mlodzik, snapped some pictures of the event, so here it is in still shots:



And the title is UNTAMED! Yay! (I know, I was putting on a silly show ... but it was fun ... that's all that matters, right?)

Here's a nice big image, so you can see all the loveliness up close and personal:


Here's a quick rundown of Q&A about the book/cover:

Q: Is it going to be available in hardback or just ebook?
A: Both!

Q: When is it being released?
A: December 2015

Q: Will The Moth in the Mirror be included in this collection?
A: Yes!

Q: Will there be ARCs or gallies?
A: No, I'm sorry. My publisher isn't printing advanced reader copies since it's a companion novel. 

Q: Are Alyssa's eyes two different colors?
A: Yes. To find out why, you'll have to read the stories. ;)

Q: Is it posted on GoodReads yet?
A: Yes! Untamed is on GoodReads now, so add, add, add!

Q: What is the book about?
A: Follow this link for more information on the content. 

Q: Can I preorder it?
A: There are preordering buttons provided here. I'll update as more preorder locations become available.

If you have other questions, you may leave them below and I'll try to answer in a few days. Just please make sure your comments/questions aren't spoilery or I'll have to delete them. Not everyone has read Ensnared yet. ;)

I'm still under a crazy deadline, but I'll get a breather later this week (either Thursday or Friday) and will finally have that giveaway I've been promising. And yes, some of the prizes will be Untamed goodies! 

So, keep a weather eye on the horizon! And happy Monday. :)

  1. Do you think that the Splintered series may be released in a box set? I think it would be a gorgeous one and I would definitely want to wait for it if there is one :)

  9. So is it written yet or still being written? A year seems like a LONG time for a novella for us to have to wait. If it's still being written/edited I can understand.

  21. I have to say, I've reread the ending to Ensnared three times over at least. I never do that immediately after finishing a book which speaks wonders about how much I love it! Seeing the news that there's going to be a sequel, and with such a lovely cover no less, has made my week infinitely better! January 2016 is so far away, but this Wonderland world is worth the wait! Thank you for writing such an incredible series!
