It seems as though every time I mention I am working on another Bullet book or when someone is reminiscing about one of the older ones, many readers are surprised. They have no idea that I have plans for more Bullet books, even though I haven’t kept it secret. J I said on Facebook last week in a post that I should probably announce it ad nauseum until people get tired of hearing it.
I think by now most of my closest followers know, but if not, here’s hoping this blog post will be an announcement of sorts. So, for the record…
THE BULLET SERIES IS NOT DONE.
Nope. Not by a long shot. Let me go ahead and let you know what you can look forward to:
4.5 Christmas Stalkings – a novella that will be out late this year as part of an anthology. The blurb: Val, Brad, and the kids decide to take a short but needed winter vacation to get away from it all and enjoy each other’s company, but one thing is stopping them from relaxing like they should. Since fronting her new band Val Hella, Val has discovered the darker side of fame—she has a stalker, one who seems intent upon stepping up his game to get what he wants, and the ruin of their vacation becomes the least of their worries.
5 Slash and Burn – This is going to be Nick’s story. I had really hoped to write it this year, but time is getting away from me. I still have three to four other projects I need to finish before getting to this one, and since it’s August already, I’m thinking this one won’t be ready until 2015. The good news, though, is that you have a little something before then. If you want a hint about his book, Nick plays drums for Val’s new band Val Hella (both he and Brad are in the band as a side project). The bassist for the band is a woman who not only plays both sides of the fence but has captured Nick’s heart in a big way. This one is going to be angsty. There will be no mistaking the Bullet vibe.
6 Untitled – I still have a story for Zane; I just don’t have a title yet. Do you remember Jennifer from Bullet, Val’s roommate and Zane’s on-again, off-again girlfriend? Well, they hook up again, but she has a little secret she’s been keeping from him.
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! Again, I’m amazed at how many people do not know this news—I will also be writing a Feverish spinoff. Here is what I have planned so far:
1.5 Boiling Point – a novella. So many readers begged for more Clay and Emily, and so I will be launching this series with a novella about Last Five Seconds on tour. Emily goes along for the ride and gets to experience the ups and downs of touring life.
2 Untitled – Brian’s story. So many readers fell in love with his character in Feverish and I’ve been told they want his story first!
3 Untitled – Silver’s story. He’s the drummer of the band.
Aaaand I’m pretty sure I will be writing a fourth book as well. Even though Devil (AKA Sam, Last Five Seconds’ lead singer) has had a steady girlfriend doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a story.
So, if you’ve been tempted to tell me how sad you are that the Bullet series is over, don’t. We have a long way to go. None of my series have ended yet. Everything comes to an end eventually, but not yet! And I’m sorry you’re having to wait, but so many other stories in my head are demanding to be let out. Just know that these books will get written. It’s just a matter of when!
