Finally have the titles for the next two books in the Fever Series! (Not Flayed, that title just never worked for me.) FEVERBORN and FEVERSONG. As I said in a prior Q&A, although I’d originally decided to condense 5 intended books into 3, it just doesn’t want to work out that way and I always obey the muse.

“One day you will kiss a man you can't breathe without, and find that breath is of little consequence.”

“I love books, by the way, way more than movies. Movies tell you what to think. A good book lets you choose a few thoughts for yourself. Movies show you the pink house. A good book tells you there's a pink house and lets you paint some of the finishing touches, maybe choose the roof style,park your own car out front. My imagination has always topped anything a movie could come up with. Case in point, those darned Harry Potter movies. That was so not what that part-Veela-chick, Fleur Delacour, looked like.”
