When friends stop trusting each other, Darkness is there to fan the flames…

Things have turned black at the House of Night. Zoey Redbird’s soul has shattered. With everything she’s ever stood for falling apart, and a broken heart making her want to stay in the Otherworld forever, Zoey’s fading fast. It’s seeming more and more doubtful that she will be able pull herself back together in time to rejoin her friends and set the world to rights. As the only living person who can reach her, Stark must find a way to get to her. But how? He will have to die to do so, the Vampyre High Council stipulates. And then Zoey will give up for sure. There are only 7 days left…
Enter BFF Stevie Rae. She wants to help Z but she has massive problems of her own. The rogue Red Fledglings are acting up, and this time not even Stevie Rae can protect them from the consequences. Her kinda boyfriend, Dallas, is sweet but too nosy for his own good. The truth is, Stevie Rae’s hiding a secret that might be the key to getting Zoey home but also threatens to explode her whole world.
In the middle of the whole mess is Aphrodite: ex-Fledgling, trust-fund baby, total hag from Hell (and proud of it). She’s always been blessed (if you could call it that) with visions that can reveal the future, but now it seems Nyx has decided to speak through her with the goddess’s own voice, whether she wants it or not. Aphrodite’s loyalty can swing a lot of different ways, but right now Zoey’s fate hangs in the balance.
Three girls… playing with fire… if they don’t watch out, everyone will get Burned.

In Immortal: Love Stories With Bite, edited by New York Times bestselling author of the House of Night series P.C. Cast, seven of today’s most popular YA vampire and contemporary fantasy authors offer new short stories that prove that when you’re immortal, true love really is forever.

With stories by authors Rachel Caine, Cynthia Leitich Smith, Claudia Gray, Richelle Mead, Nancy Holder, Kristin Cast, and Tanith Lee.

Read our Exclusive Interview with P.C. Cast!

1) What genre have you not yet written but really want to try?

I’d love to try my hand at the horror genre. I like to scare myself!

2) Thinking back to the way beginning, what’s the most important thing you’ve learned as a writer from then to now?

Not to romanticize the job of being an author. Successful authors are professionals. They treat their careers like JOBS. A successful author educates herself about the business of publishing while she’s honing her writing skills. She is also a savvy businesswoman. Sadly, there is no lounging about eating bonbons and sipping champagne while you wait for the Muse to whisper a bestseller in your ear.

3) What kind of research did you have to do to bring this story to life on the page?

I did loads of interesting research for BURNED. One of the coolest things I did was to spend quite a bit of time tromping around the Isle of Skye in the Scottish Highlands. I also was introduced to some wonderful Clan men and women who were generous and kind enough to share their rich history with me.

4) When did you first know that you wanted to be a writer? Have you had other jobs along the way?

I can’t ever remember not wanting to be an author. I wrote my first book in first grade (Blubby the Blue Whale – it hasn’t been published. Yet.). I have had many jobs along the way: I served active duty in the USAF, put myself through college being executive assistant to the director of nursing services for a large hospital, and taught high school for fifteen years.

5) Which fictional character do you have a secret crush on?

Of my own making: ClanFintan from my Partholon novels. Although as the heroine in those novels is embarrassingly like me, the crush probably isn’t very “secret.”

Someone else’s: Jamie Fraser from Diana Gabaldon’s OUTLANDER books.

    Loved the book, beginning was hard to follow becaue of all the jumping from character to character, but very quickly was drawn into the plot. Another winner. Can’t wait for Awakened! Any idea when that will be available?
