For those who don’t subscribe to my newsletter and missed it this morning I wanted to give a few updates. The first is that Darkness Haunts is currently on sale for only 99 cents through to tomorrow night (April 2nd) on all the major retailers. If you know anyone who might be interested in trying the series out, this is a great time to get the first book at a discount since I’m not sure if/when I’ll drop the price again. You can find the purchase links for it here.
In other news…
One of the questions I’ve been asked a lot lately is when the Darkness Shatters paperback will be out. I’m waiting on the hard copy proof to look over, but I expect to approve it and have it ready for sale within the next two weeks. Some of you are also waiting on the audio version of Darkness Shatters. My publisher has set the release date for June 3rd of this year and the CD version is already up for pre-order. They usually don’t have the digital version on pre-order until 2-3 weeks before the release, but I’ll put out another reminder close to then for those who need it.
As far as my publishing schedule on upcoming books go, I’m writing a novel now for an all-new series with the first book releasing in late June. It’s an idea that hit me about a year ago and has been bugging me ever since. I’ve worked on it in bits and pieces over the past months, but forced myself to wait until after publishing Darkness Shatters before putting my full attention on it. This one falls within the dark fantasy genre, but has totally different races/creatures than the Sensor Series. Most of my current readers should find it appealing. Yes, I’m leaving the details vague but I’ll reveal the cover and summary in about a month so you can find out more then.
For Darkness Wanes, book six of the Sensor Series, I expect to have it out in October of this year. That will wrap up the story arc for the main series, but I’ll go on to write spin-offs for some of the side characters and explore more on how *spoiler alert* the world has changed with supernaturals coming out in the open. There will be at least two of those novels (one featuring Cori as the main character and another featuring Micah) and possibly a third if the demand for Kerbasi to get his own novel keeps up. After that, I may do a book seven with Melena and Lucas where I actually keep them together for the plot (try not to be too shocked). Yes, I hear the complaints but keep in mind this is an urban fantasy series, not a paranormal romance so the focus has been different. Book seven would be to please the PNR lovers.
That’s it for now, but feel free to ask questions below if you have any.
Thanks for the sale on the first book! Because of it, I’ve discovered an entirely new (to me) author and series to love! I’ve already bought the next two and the ‘tween novellas… after I finish those, I’ll get the rest. And then join the rest of your fans in chanting “write more, write faster!” Because readers always read faster than writers write. Sorry. Sorta.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the books, Karen 🙂
I expect I will! I just finished #3, and ran over to B&N to order the rest! I’ll try to get some reviews written in the next day or two…
*spoilers for those who havent read all sensor series*
why are you not keeping them together? is that an april fools? most of the series has been about them going to such lengths to protect the other… her breaking him out, him making her immortal, her choosing him over the others. i dont think that will make the last book good if you do that, rather ruin the series.
Justin, they will be together in book six. That novel will wrap up the story arc and end on a positive note with no big cliff hangers.
Thank God! A was really worried 🙂 Have a nice day Susan!
Thank you for Darkness Shatters. It’s really good and has restored my faith in UF. I love how the events over the course of the series shape the characters while they retain their personalities. Also, thank you for the total lack of melodrama, which is so often substituted for plot and action.
Have you read the Paradox series by Rachel Bach? If not, based on what you write, you’d probably enjoy it.
Abra, glad you enjoyed the latest novel. I haven’t read any books by Rachel Bach, but I’ll have to check her series out. Thanks for the tip!
Hi Susan, can you tell us when Darkness Wanes will be up for pre-order? I am waiting very patiently for the release!! Hahaha if you believe that!
Hello, Pamela. I don’t do pre-orders on my books, but if I decide to do one for Darkness Wanes I’ll be sure to announce it for you 🙂
