YES! There will be a Curse Keepers book #4! And also a #5 and #6.
I’m getting some feedback that readers feel deceived by the “trilogy” label on the Curse Keeper series, when the series isn’t ending. I never intended the series to be a trilogy.
I planned on writing least six books in the Curse Keeper series, possibly more. 47North was well aware of this. I sold them the first three books and three short stories. The original synopsis for book three ended with a very unsatisfying ending for a series. So I wrote the first two books and a short story before I was aware that the book was being called a trilogy. That’s right. I found out AFTER I wrote THE CURSE BREAKERS, book #2.
I’ll be extremely honest. This put me in a very difficult situation. I had a whole lot of loose ends that needed to be tied up to create a satisfying conclusion to the “trilogy.” At the same time, I had no intention of tying them all up. Once I wrapped my head around the idea of a trilogy, I realized I could make this work. I had to. I didn’t have any choice in the matter.
The next question I get is when will book four be released? The simplest answer is that I’m not sure yet. All my other books are self-published. I’m used to publishing what I want, when I want. But once you add a publisher into the mix, it’s no longer that easy. They have rules that have to be followed. (See the above paragraphs.) I CAN say that the very soonest you will see the next Curse Keeper book will be Summer 2015, but there’s a chance it could be October 2015. As soon as I can share the information, I’ll post it here on the blog portion of my website as well as this page.
In the meantime, I have one more contracted release with 47North in the Curse Keeper world– a prequel short story from Collin’s POV titled “This is Your Destiny.” It will be out January 20, 2015. It’s available for preorder here. (Note: at the current time, the Curse Keepers series is Amazon exclusive.)
