How many Soul Screamers books will there be?
I’m under contract for seven Soul Screamers books. My Soul to Take, My Soul to Save, My Soul to Keep, My Soul To Steal, If I Die, and Before I Wake are available now in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, and France. With All My Soul, the seventh and final novel in the series, comes out April 1, 2013 in the US and Canada.
So far, all or some of the Soul Screamers books are available in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, and Brazil. They may be coming in other countries as well, but I don’t have any concrete information about that yet.
What are the Soul Screamers novellas and where can I get them?
There are currently three Soul Screamers novellas, all in e-format. You do not have to have an e-reader to read them–they can be purchased in PDF format, which is readable on any computer and most smart phones. The novellas (longer than a short story, but much shorter than a novel) are “extras” intended to be read along with the series. “My Soul To Lose” takes place before the first novel in the series and can be read at any time. “Reaper” also takes place before the first novel, but is best read after the 3rd book. “Never To Sleep” is set in the middle of If I Die and should not be read until after If I Die.
The novellas can be bought at any online bookstore, in just about any format, but so far “Never To Sleep” is only available in the US/Canada, “Reaper” is only available in the US, Canada, and France, and “My Soul To Lose” is only available in the US, Canada, and the UK. I don’t currently have any other information about foreign releases.
The only novella currently available in print is “My Soul To Lose,” which can be found in the Soul Screamers omnibus, Volume One.
What are the Soul Screamers short stories, and where can I get them?
“Fearless” (a prequel story from Sabine’s POV) is available in the Kiss Me Deadly anthology. “Niederwald” (set between My Soul To Steal and If I Die, also from Sabine’s POV) is in the Enthralled anthology.
Will you write any more Shifters books after Alpha?
Probably not. Faythe has her happy ending, and to continue the series would mean taking that away from her. Don’t you think she’s been through enough?
How many Unbound books will there be?
There will be three Unbound books. Blood Bound and Shadow Bound are out now in the US, Canada, and the UK. Oath Bound comes out in the spring of 2013 in the US and Canada. And that’s really all I know at the moment.
Why are the Unbound books each each told from a different character’s perspective?
Actually, they’re each told from two different characters’ perspectives. Because I’m trying something new (to me). Challenging myself. Letting more than one person show us what s/he sees of the world. I know everyone seems to love Liv and Cam from Blood Bound, but give Kori and Ian a chance in Shadow Bound. They may just win your hearts.
Have you ever thought about making your books into movies?
It doesn’t really work that way. Sorry. I’m an author, so I write books. Directors and producers make movies, and that’s a VERY big and expensive undertaking. It takes millions and millions of dollars to make a movie. Seriously. In order for a book to be made into a movie, the film rights must be sold to a production company, and that hasn’t happened yet with any of my books. We’ve had interest, but that’s as far as it’s gone so far. Truthfully, very, very few books will ever be optioned for film, and of those optioned, very, very few will actually make it to the screen. You hear about the exceptions because they’re the exceptions.
I’m an aspiring author. Will you read my work and give me an opinion or advice?
I’m sorry, but for legal reasons, I can’t read unpublished fiction. But the good news is that you don’t need me to read your stuff. What you need is a critique group or critique partner. I’ve been working with mine for years and she’s invaluable. There are plenty of places both in person and online to find a critique partner (including your local RWA chapter, even if you don’t write romance). The thing to remember is that you want someone who is at or slightly above your current skill and experience level.
Why can’t I get your books in my country?
If you can’t get my books in your country, chances are that rights to that territory haven’t yet sold. There’s nothing I can do about that, unfortunately. At least some of my books are or will soon be available in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Brazil, India, Turkey, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Vietnam, Hungary, and Thailand.
