Exciting news for fans of YA novels and Cassandra Clare! Yesterday it was announced that Cassie is going to contribute a short story for an anthology edited by Stephanie Perkins (My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories, Anna and the French Kiss).
The anthology, which is called Summer Days & Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories, will also feature authors like Leigh Bardugo (The Grisha Trilogy), Libba Bray (Gemma Doyle Trilogy), Veronica Roth (Divergent Trilogy) and Jennifer E. Smith ().
Since the short stories are set in summer, the anthology will be released in summer 2016.
