Deborah was wondering if you are going to continue the series for "The Ring and the Crown"? Iniside the book it says it is a series but here on your site it says 1 book?

message 3: by Noemi

Noemi Dear Melissa! First, let me say that I can't wait to read The Vampires of Manhattan! Second, I'm so excited about The Ring and The Crown! And finally, why I'm writing, is that I'd like to know if there will be a next graphic novel for Blue Bloods??? Thank you, N!

Sumney Melissa,
I really enjoyed The Ashleys series and the blue bloods series! Thanks for being my friend. =)
