It has taken me some time to figure out how I wanted to go at this post. As many of you know, I have gone pretty quiet online. I often struggle to come up with anything interesting to say, even on Twitter, where often, you can say whatever you want and it is fine. And even when I do have news to share, sometimes it isn’t good and I don’t know how to say it.
This is one of those times.
As it stands now, Kensington is not going to continue with the Kat series. I don’t hold it against them. In fact, I sort of expected it to happen sooner. I’m thankful I was able to get five books out, but am disappointed I was not able to finish the series with them. I don’t blame anyone for this decision either. I’m happy many of you got to share the world with me. I’m thrilled a lot of you enjoyed reading about her. And while book five does end in a way that could be considered a satisfactory ending for some, there are still so many unanswered questions.
So, what now?
While I’ve stated before that I will finish the series, no matter what, it isn’t going to happen right away. Does it suck? Yeah, of course it does. But I also have to move forward. There are other books I need to write. I need to move my career forward, hopefully learning from the mistakes I made with Kat, and providing you, the reader, with new worlds to explore and enjoy. I can’t do that if I dwell on what went before.
But what about someday, in the future? I’m not going to rule it out. In fact, I’ve actually written a portion of a sixth and final book. I imagine it will get done someday, but it won’t happen until I’m comfortable with where I stand. I absolutely hate disappointing those who have faithfully followed Kat from the beginning. It disappoints me. But decisions needed to be made, and as much as I hate to say it, I have to let her go.
Until then, I will be working on new novels, looking to find a book you all can love. I’ll also be looking into moving this site, so be watchful of that. And I do hope to have more, better, news for you sometime soon.
Thank you all for standing by me, for reading Kat and emailing me. I hope that this will be the last time I have bad news for you. I want us all to move on together.
