More Crossbreed?

Readers ask me a lot how many books I have planned in the series. Usually I don't know. With the Seven series, I planned seven books. I wound up writing a side story (Charming) and a bonus novella (Winter Moon) that made it more than 7.

But mostly, I just go where the story takes me. I have certain plot points written out that I need to hit in order for that plot or character to arc. I don't like leaving loose strings. Now, I might have readers who disagree, saying "What about Adam?" or "What about Ben?"

Well, Ben's story was an HEA. He returned home. But life goes on. I won't leave readers on a cliffhanger at the end of a series. What I will do is create the kind of characters who still have hopes and dreams and a long life ahead. It would be more sad for me to write an epilogue of everything that happens all the way until the death. I like allowing the reader to imagine and wonder what they might be doing right now.

But I digress. Nevermore (book 6 of Crossbreed) comes out in January. I have at least two books planned after that, but I do not have the final book in sight. When I do, I'll be sure that readers are given that information prior to its release so they can prepare. After all, I have a lot of readers who simply won't read any of my books until the series is done. And then I have readers who still refuse to read the final book.

Please, read the final books. Those are the best stories.

I hope that answers some questions regarding plans for the Crossbreed series. Heads up: I may have either a short novel or novella on a side character, told from their POV. Hope that doesn't yank readers out of the series who like being in Raven's head, but I'm very fair to all my secondary characters who have equally important stories of their own to tell. For some, it can be spread across many books and split into their own chapters. But sometimes the story just has to be separated.

And that's all I've got for now.

Happy reading!

Cover reveal: Nevermore

Nevermore (Crossbreed Book 6)
Coming January 15, 2019

Raven returns to her childhood home to rebuild her severed relationship with her father. After a long year of capturing violent criminals and thwarting assassination plots, she could use a vacation.

But trouble is brewing on the home front. When Raven discovers her father is in financial peril, she’s determined to set things right even if it means sacrificing her heart in the process. Meanwhile, her relationship with Christian is on shaky ground when a skeleton falls out of his closet. Will they be able to leave the past behind, or is the trust between them dead and buried?

Update

The cover reveal for Nevermore will be coming Oct. 4. Sign up for my newsletter if you want to be the first to see it before it hits the internet. :-) Release date and synopsis will be officially announced at that time.

I hope you're as excited as I am for the next installment. Those who know my books know that I don't like ending on anything remotely cliffy, but Blackout was really a soft cliffhanger that segues into the next novel perfectly. I'm so excited for the cover reveal as I worked hard on the design.

Nevermore will also be coming to audio, and the release date will be announced once my publisher has that information available. :)

If you're a little impatient, and you haven't read the Mageri series, that's a great extension of the Mageri world and also includes Christian Poe. Check it out!
