When are you going to come to my city for an event?
As soon as an event is confirmed, I put it here. My publisher arranges signings and I have no say in where they send me. For other events, I accept a limited number of invitations (to attend conventions, give workshops, speak at libraries.)
How long will the Cainsville series be?
It was originally envisioned as a trilogy, so you may have heard me say that when I first announced it. Before I was even done book 1, though, I knew I wasn’t wrapping things up in 3 books. I’ve sold books 4 & 5, and I’ll accomplish all my major goals by that point.
Will you be continuing in middle-grade after The Blackwell Pages?
At this point, no. The Blackwell Pages trilogy ended with Thor’s Serpents and my current schedule for YA and adult (as you’ll see above!) is too jam-packed for me to add more middle-grade fiction.
Any chance of more Nadia?
Ah, the Nadia books. I’m terribly fond of them, despite the fact they never matched the sales of my other series. They do have their loyal readership, though, so I did write a novella for Nadia and Jack, which I hope to have edited and released in late 2015.
When are you going to write a fourth Darkest Powers book?
While the initial trilogy ended with The Reckoning, the series itself continued with the Darkness Rising trilogy, featuring different teens in the same world, who are subjects of another Edison Group experiment. The two groups joined forces in the last book of the series, The Rising.
So the YA series is finished after The Rising?
That series (Darkest Powers & Darkness Rising) is finished at 6 novels and assorted short fiction, including Atoning, set after the trilogies ended. For novels, I have a new trilogy, Age of Legends starting with Sea of Shadows and after that I’m doing 3 standalone YA thrillers, beginning with The Masked Truth.
Is the Otherworld really over?
Thirteen was the final book in the series. The novellas and short fiction will wrap up with a final novella (Driven) and anthology in 2016. In adult fiction, I moved on to the Cainsville series (which began with Omens) and a new as-yet-untitled mystery series starting with City of the Lost.
And for any questions on the Bitten TV series…
Your best source for news would be Space or Syfy. They’ve asked that all questions about the series be directed to them. I play no role in the production, so I can’t answer them!
