Well, I’ve got some updates for you—and hope to have more soon.
First: Fury’s Magic will be out before Thanksgiving, so keep watch for our announcement when it comes out! And if you haven’t read Fury Rising before, you still have time!
Second: I have some news that will be a little disappointing—but I promise, only a little.
I had slated Moon Shimmers—Otherworld #19—for late January, but it’s going to take just a couple months longer than that. I promise you though, it will be out by April or May at the latest.
Why the delay?
Because of the popularity of Taming the Vampire—and the excitement about Blood Music—the prequel story to Bewitching Bedlam—I’ve decided to switch the release dates for Bewitching Bedlam and Moon Shimmers. So you WILL have a January book—it will just be switched around. I’m planning on releasing two Bewitching Bedlam Series books next year and boy am I looking forward to writing them—they’re going to be fun, hot and steamy, and magical.
Third: Yes, there will be a third—and fourth—Whisper Hollow book (and maybe more, but I can’t say how many for sure). The third–Crow Song–will be coming out later in 2017. Can’t give you a firm date yet, but I have it planned for late summer. The fourth—Morrígan’s Blade—in 2018.
Fourth: Yes, there will be more Fury Unbound books. At least one next year, if not two. I have about five-six planned.
Fifth: People have asked about Fly by Night. Here’s one of the hard pieces of news I have to tell you. I’ve had to put that series on indefinite hold.
With Berkley and me not being able to find any middle ground (they didn’t want my paranormal, I didn’t want to write non-paranormal) I’ve chosen to go indie, as you all know by now.
The fallout of this is: in the indie world, it’s very important to have series that are purely indie from start to finish to bring in new readers. This has been a blessing for me—it’s giving me the opportunity to explore other ideas. Hence the Fury Unbound Series and the new Bewitching Bedlam Series. Honestly, I’m thrilled because I needed to branch out and write new things.
However, it means I can’t continue all the series I was writing with Berkley due to time constraints. I already promised to continue Otherworld and finish up the series. And Whisper Hollow haunts me. Both of those sell far better than Fly by Night. So those are the two I’ve chosen.
This means that the Fly by Night Series is going to have to sit on the shelf for awhile. Perhaps (this is not a promise but a possibility), after I finish the Otherworld Series, I’ll be able to continue it. I’m truly sorry—I know a number of you love Shimmer and Alex, and so do I, but I have to write the series that sell the best. Or, maybe…if I find sales of Otherworld pick up enough now that I’m in indie, I may figure out a way to write a few more—again, NOT a promise, just a possibility.
So there are the updates at this time.
