Livi Talbot remains on life support. This 10-12-book series is depending on sales sustaining it and if people stop stealing. Theft and low sales delays books–in fact theft is directly responsible for the fifth novel being delayed by over a year and has put the future of the series in jeopardy.
Per my author’s note at the end of Yampellec’s Idol, I am not talking about future books or giving them a dedicated book page on my site until they’re complete and up for preorder. And I appreciate enthusiasm for the series but please do not complain to me or send me hatemail about the wait between books; I am doing the best that I can with the circumstances, which include chronic illness and poverty, and heaping more pressure on me does not change those factors.
