Will there be a sequel to The Green Ember?
I get asked about this quite often, so I thought I’d make a location where a curious person can easily get answers. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask them in the comments. Okay. Here goes.
Will you be writing a sequel to The Green Ember?
Yes! It’s mostly written, in fact. I am in the editing stage right now. I’m super excited to share this story with you.
When will it be released?
We are aiming for Spring 2016. But we want to make certain it’s the best it can (reasonably) be. We are working very hard to hit our goal!
Will Heather and Picket be the main characters in the sequel?
Will Zach Franzen be doing the cover art and illustrations once again?
Yes! He’s working on them right now. He is eager to share them with you!
Will there be more short prequels like The Black Star of Kingston and what are the Tales of Old Natalia?
I hope so. I’m planning on it. Black Star was the first in the Tales of Old Natalia series. The Tales of Old Natalia series title was meant to distinguish the older stories, starting with Whitson Mariner coming to Natalia in Black Star, from The Green Ember series.
Are you saying there will be a series of Green Ember books?
I think there will be three.
Do you have a title for book 2?
Not settled yet. Soon, I hope. Got any great ideas?
As always, any important news (sequel title and cover art, or another award lost, etc.), as well as any special offers, will be shared first with my newsletter subscribers.
My newsletter, Blast to Smithereens, has an unlimited budget for spectacular graphics. (As you can see.) Subscribe today, or face the wrath of the rabbit on my shoulder. Where’s the monkey that used to be on my back? I’ll give you three guesses and the first two do count, because this will be a fair assessment of your insight. UPDATE: The preceding banter (re: the bunny and the late monkey) was purely rhetorical.
Do you have any questions about the sequel? Feel free to ask away!
