Happy release day to Olivia Dade, Adriana Herrera, Ruby Lang, Cat Sebastian, and, well, me. I’m absolutely thrilled that He’s Come Undone is finally out in the world.
Brennan and Kristy’s story might be the most personal thing that I’ve ever written, and it took me almost a year to get it right. I’m enormously grateful to my critique partner Genevieve Turner for reading many, many drafts; to Kristi Yanta who did an amazing developmental edit for me last fall; and to Olivia Dade and Ruby Lang for beta reading the revision. (And it was a MASSIVE revision.)
“Appassionata” is a story about losing your voice and about fear, but it’s also about hope. About how art and love make us vulnerable–and give our lives meaning. And I hope if you pick it up, you’ll love it.
I really can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the other four stories in the anthology. They’re funny and poignant and angsty and sexy and wonderful. I’m so honored to be in the company of these incredible writers.
You can buy He’s Come Undone at almost all the online retailers. We pulled it from B&N after they delayed paying royalties recently. I’m sorry for any inconvenience that causes.
But when you’re reading, I’d highly recommend listening to the Spotify playlist I put together for “Appassionata,” which includes all the music Kristy plays and some contemporary pop that I listened to when I was writing it.
