The series is ending prematurely with the seventh book (that post has some details and links to a longer one).
This decision breaks my heart but was made for the sake of my health due to high levels of theft and low sales. I will endeavor to have a satisfying conclusion, but this means I have to rearrange things to make it a series end and that is taking extra time. The earliest the final book will release is 2025, given the state of my health delaying writing projects. This upsets people, I know, but I cannot magically cure my chronic health conditions, so please do not yell at me.
I will update when I have details but don’t expect news before 2024. Sign up for my newsletter if you want to be informed.
