Seems like I haven't posted here in Forever.
Seriously, sorry for the long absence. I'd rather work on my fiction than the blog in general, when time is limited, and I think we all found last year pretty stressful, and stress isn't great for the creative juices. Allan and I both have multiple conditions that make changes for the worse dangerous. I hope you've all weathered the pandemic all right yourselves. My sympathies for any losses you've had-- health, loved ones, finances. No one's pain is lessened by someone else having it worse, so it's okay to share your burdens.
But enough about what's been going on. You want to know what is happening with the books. Forever Festive will definitely by out in November, and I'm only waiting that long because I think that Christmas books are most enjoyable at Christmas time. You'll get to meet Rafael's family, find out a bit about the magic community in Buffalo, New York, and best of all, spend more time with Clara. At least, Rafael thinks that's the best part. There's also a guardian angel with a missing ward, who brings the mystery to Rafael Jones. (photo by Ralph Skirr, courtesy of Unsplash)
As for the anthology, Forever W.I.T.C.H Hunting, that will be out after Forever Festive, probably around this time next year. The good news is, I have four stories already finished and will release at least one more here for you to enjoy in advance. More good news: Rafael, Clara, Sir Lynn, Flannery, Eugene, and Medium Brown will all be represented if I get all the stories finished. Clara is slated for three stories, and Sir Lynn is pretty much involved throughout in some way, since he manages the group. The first story starts before Britain is officially at war, and the last one comes just after Forever Festive. There will also be new faces, one of which will be an important part of Forever Chosen... the next novel coming after Forever Festive. Oh, and the new people include-- a cryptologist, a telekinetic, a demonologist, a witch, a healer, and a few who can't be summed up that easily. :)
Forever Chosen will bring back the vampires you love to hate.
