A group of YA authors, myself included, have banded together to create a YA Shakespeare retelling anthology: Never Be Younger. The title was inspired from Taming of the Shrew and it will be released in June 2015. And here’s the gorgeous cover:
My wonderful blog assistant E.L. Wicker and I cowrote two stories:
A Gargoyle on Prom Night – a retelling of a Midsummer Night’s Dream where instead of fairies Oberon, Puck and Titania are teenagers who have mutated powers. So Shakespeare meets X-men told from the perspective of Puckerman.
Starcrossed Lovers – a retelling of Romeo and Juliet set on the Space Station Verona. The Capulets govern part of the galaxy, with a desire to spread their influence, while the Montagues are space pirates smuggling merchandise under the nose of the authorities. A war breaks out between the two as a power struggle emerges. In an effort tip the war in the favour, Romeo Montague is sent to Juliet Capulet’s debut ball to assassinate her.
100% of the profits is being donated to the charity United Through Reading.
You can add this anthology to your Goodreads shelf.
