Richelle Mead

New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Fantasy Author


In addition to her novels, Richelle also occasionally contributes short stories and novellas to anthologies with other authors. 


"Homecoming" in Foretold: 14 Tales of Prophecy and Prediction     (Young Adult)


"Homecoming" takes places after Last Sacrifice and tells the story of Rose and Dimitri as they travel back to Russia to visit his family--and encounter some unexpected obstacles while they're there.

Foretold is edited by Carrie Ryan, so if bookstores have trouble finding it, have them try looking it up under her name. Other cool authors who've contributed stories are: Meg Cabot, Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia, and more!




"Sunshine" in Kisses From Hell     (Young Adult)

 Read Excerpt      Buy

Kisses from Hell is an anthology of paranormal YA stories. "Sunshine" is a short story set in the Vampire Academy world and tells how Lissa's parents met and fell in love. Other authors in the anthology include Kristin Cast, Alyson Noel, Kelley Armstrong, and Francesca Lia Block.

At this time, I have no information about the anthology's availability in other countries.




Immortal"Blue Moon" in Immortal: Love Stories With Bite        (Young Adult)

This short story takes place in a world where vampires rule and humans live as second-class citizens.  Lucy, the daughter of the most powerful vampire in Chicago, suddenly finds herself being hunted by her own kind and must rely on the help of a cute human guy who's spent his whole life hating the vampires who rule his city.

Immortal is a young adult anthology that features stories by other authors like Rachel Caine and P.C. & Kristin Cast.




EternalLover"City of Demons" in Eternal Lover       

"City of Demons" takes place between books 2 and 3 of the Georgina Kincaid series. In this novella, Georgina and her boyfriend find themselves in Los Angeles when Georgina is forced into demonic jury duty. There, Georgina discovers that justice might not be so blind in Hell's legal system and that her hands-off romance is only going to get harder and harder.

Eternal Lover features other novellas by authors Jackie Kessler, Hannah Howell, and Lynsay Sands. It is available now from Kensington Books.  Buy it here.




Dreams120"Brushstrokes" in Dreams and Desires       

This short story tells the story of succubus Georgina, back when she lived during the Italian Renaissance.  "Brushstrokes" follows Georgina as she takes on the identity of Bianca, a noblewoman in Florence, during the middle of the Bonfire of the Vanities--a time when many great works of art and literature were destroyed. Georgina soon finds herself working with a sexy artist who's intent on saving Florence's art, no matter the risk.

Dreams and Desires was a small-release charity anthology, the proceeds of which benefit a shelter for abused women.  It's very hard to find these days. If you do get a copy, verify that "Brushstrokes" is in it.  Later copies did not include the story (because most of it was reprinted in Succubus Shadows).
