The Girl Who Was On Fire

. . . no not me, though it does feel a bit like I am with all the good news coming fast and furious these days (and I'm not complaining, believe you me).

No, The Girl Who Was on Fire is the title of that Hunger Games essay anthology I told you guys I was also contributing to to be released next year (along with the YA Steampunk anthology: Corsets & Clockwork). Well actually the FULL title is:

The Girl Who Was on Fire: Your Favorite Authors on Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games Trilogy

Yup. I'm a "favorite author". Just saying.

Even cooler than the cool title is the very cool cover which is finally available to share - it's quite smartly designed to emulate the style of the covers of the series itself:

Also here's a list of contributors for your edification:

*Jennifer Lynn Barnes
*Mary Borsellino
*Sarah Rees Brennan
*Terri Clark
*Bree Despain
*Adrienne Kress aka the Queen of Fantabulous
*Cara Lockwood
*Mitali Perkins
*Diana Peterfreund
*Elizabeth M. Rees
*Carrie Ryan
*Linda Joy Singleton
*Ned Vizzini
*Lili Wilkinson

And a wee blurb:

Praised by writers from Stephen King to Stephenie Meyer, Suzanne Collins’ New York Times bestselling Hunger Games trilogy is dark, captivating, and deeply thought-provoking. Part straight-up survivalist adventure, part rich allegory, and part political thriller, the series has become a new YA favorite.

The Girl Who Was On Fire offers even more to think about for teen readers already engrossed by the Hunger Games. From the trilogy's darker themes of violence and social control to reality television, fashion, and weaponry, the collection's exploration of the Hunger Games by other YA writers reveals exactly how rich, and how perilous, protagonist Katniss’ world really is.

The Girl Who Was On Fire covers all three books in the Hunger Games trilogy.

And of course a link to the book's page so you can pre-order your copy this very moment.

So yeah. There you go! Sharing is fun.

Either I'm just not reading the right books, or I haven't read nearly enough. The only author I recognize on that list is you! And yes you are the queen of fantabulous. ^_^
