Okay, I get a lot of questions about when series are ending. Some series are opened ended and will continue until sales/reviews fall. Reviews? Yes, reviews. I need the reviews to advertise. When I can’t get enough, that plays into the end of a series. Only reviews on Amazon count for the advertising. It is what it is.
What series don’t I have an end date for at this time so don’t send me panicked messages because I’m not giving you specifics about endings (that’s because there are no specifics, so chill)?
1. Wicked Witches of the Midwest
2. Moonstone Bay
3. Mystic Caravan
4. Spell’s Angels
5. Two Broomsticks Gas & Grill
6. Charlie Rhodes
7. Supernatural Speakeasy
8. Hannah Hickok
They will go on indefinitely as of this time. If an end starts to take shape, I will let you know with more than a year to go.
Which series are ending?
1. Ivy Morgan: In November of 2021, the last regular book in the series will hit. It’s called Wicked Forever (book 21 in the series) and is several books after the wedding. The characters will continue showing up in crossovers, though.
2. Death Gate: This was always a set number of books. Much like Aisling, I had a set story I wanted to tell. It will be nine books. When does the last book hit? Not until October 2022. Will there be more Grimlocks after that? They will be regular players in another series (actually, probably more than one but that needs to be ironed out going forward). The heroine of the one series I’m absolutely sure about is actually being introduced in Only the Devout. You will get to see her a bit (no, she is not Redmond’s love interest) and you will get to know her before she gets her own series. I actually have an incredibly in-depth world set up for her and a fun way to explore the new environment that is taking shape in Detroit’s downtown.
3. Harper Harlow: As of right now I have Harper ending with Ghostly Travels (book 18 in the series) in May 2021. I am not 100% married to that – it’s more 50-50 – but I’m leaning toward it. She will also be continuing in crossovers. If I were to think of some fantastic arc, I can see pushing that off for three books (but that would be the limit). I don’t presently have that arc, so I’m leaning more toward ending it. I would prefer ending when I still have fresh ideas than grasping at straws.
As for the rest, I have books planned for all the series I termed “ongoing” through at least 2022. I can’t answer after that because I can only think so far into the future.
That brings us to Avery Shaw. You will notice I didn’t include her in either section. To be honest, Avery is my favorite character. She’s the most like me. However, she suffers from declining sales, an inability to cross over into the other worlds, which makes her an island, and declining reviews. That doesn’t mean I totally want to let her go, though, because I like writing about myself in a story. So, what does that mean? In March 2021, the last SCHEDULED Avery Shaw book will hit. I’m not telling you the title because it’s a spoiler. After that, basically I will write an Avery book when I have a really good idea (which is very easy for me to do because I get inspiration from the news constantly). She will not have more than one book a year, though, and I will basically plug her into the schedule when I have inspiration/time. I will announce when I plan to publish a book, but she will no longer be on the schedule after March of next year. I will simply add her in when I can.
Which brings us to new series.
There will be one new series next year. Harley, who you’ve met in Charlie’s series, will get her own series. The first book hits in September 2021. The Grimlocks will be involved in that series, too, although they will not be as prominent as they are in the Death Gate series. The love interest in that series is Logan, who you met in the Mystic Caravan and Grimlock crossover. There will be more on that later.
For Lily Harper Hart, the Witch on the Rocks series will also launch in September 2021. That one will be a lot of fun and I will break it down later (when I have more time).
Those are the only new series next year. I don’t know yet what new series will launch in 2022 but that’s quite a ways off anyway and I need time to figure things out.
So, I think that’s it. If there are any changes, I will let you know. As always, thank you for reading.
When I was a kid, I was torn between whether or not I was going to grow up and be the Incredible Hulk or Wonder Woman. I flirted with being a Jedi Knight for awhile, but I wasn't up for the intense travel associated with the gig. In my teens, I settled on being a writer -- although I had no idea the effort that would entail.
