You read that right… Book 4 DOES EXIST!

I’m sure many of you have completely forgotten about the Water Keepers or lost all hope that I would ever finish the series, but I’m happy to finally say that Book 4 is on its way. It’s not done yet, but it’s getting closer. I appreciate those of you who have shown so much patience and encouragement to me during a hard time.

I’ve been getting the question “Where is book 4?” for three years now, without a good answer to give in return. I used to answer every email and Facebook message I got, but it got to the point where I just stopped answering because I didn’t know what to say. I was tired of giving bad news. Believe me, I’ve been just as disappointed (probably more so) than most of you. I thought it was finally time to give an update and explanation as to why it has been so long since you’ve heard anything from me.

The short answer is this: I’ve been struggling with health problems. At this point I plan to spare you the details. All I will say is that the more sick I got, the more depressed I became, and it is crazy-hard to be creative and use critical thinking skills when you’re sick both mentally and physically. I started to believe that I would never write again, and that just made things even worse. I ended up in the hospital for a week this summer, which was a scary experience, but I’m relieved to say that ever since then, things have been improving.

Now… the GOOD news. I did start writing again! Book 4 is probably 50 percent complete, most of which I wrote in just the last three months. That means there is hope that Book 4 will be done in the near future. I can’t make any promises on a date, but just know that I am working on it and I haven’t given up. My goal is to be done before May 2016, that gives me a six-month buffer, although I’m really hoping it won’t take that long.

I’m not sure if this next announcement will seem like good news to you or bad, but here goes… Book 4 is not the last book in the series. According to the massive outline I’ve created over the last three years, there needs to be at least six books total to complete the story, maybe seven. I have no idea how long it will take me to finish this series, but darn it, I WILL FINISH!

I’m grateful every day to those of you who have given my series a chance! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I hope I have more good news for you very soon!
