The Fate of the Coveted Series

Aggie's Book - My May 2013 Release
So, what's going on with the Coveted series...

Many readers have approached me asking about book #3 in the Coveted series. At the end of KEPT, the second book, I had left the door open to more books and many have wanted to know what happens to Nat and Thorn and everyone else for that matter.

The good news is that Nat's third book will be made! The other side of the coin though is that it will not be done through Ballantine Books. I adore my editor and I love how much she helped me shape my world. The first two books were so much fun, but Ballantine has made a business decision to not move forward with the series. But, that's okay, folks. I'm a writer. I love to write books, no matter the publisher. It's all about the story and I still plan to craft new books, whether they are with a NY publisher or done on my own. The publishing world has changed--in a good way for authors. For this final book in Nat's journey though, I will be taking the reins to give my readers the adventures they want. I have plans to give Nick his own series (I listened to those of you on Team Nick) and maybe Heidi if her story comes to me.

So what's the plan?

MAY 2013
I plan to release Aggie's book: BITTER DISENCHANTMENT: A COVETED NOVELLA.

EARLY SUMMER 2013
I plan to release BITTEN BY TREACHERY: HADLEY WEREWOLVES #2.

SPRING 2014


LATE 2013 INTO 2014
Nick's Series begins. Are you ready to follow him to wizard's medical school to see what happens when a white wizard with OCD has to tackle his studies?

Finally, I want to thank all the readers, bloggers, and reviewers who have supported me. (Thank you, Street Team!) There's more to come and I'm so glad you're on this journey with me!

I'm very glad to hear the news, and if you'll e-mail me with links as the books release I'll pass the news along to my readers at PBW before I grab my copies. I finally have an e-reader, I can do that. :)

This is the second post like this I've read today. It makes me sad that publishers are giving up on so many good series. Good for you for staying positive and finding another way to do what you love. I'm adding these books to my wishlist now! :)

Congratulations on all of your success as an author. I like the fantasy genre, I truly enjoy fiction stories like this one. It seems like the urban spin would make for an interesting twist in your writing. Gritty realism and fantasy have both been done often but rarely done together.
