Thank you, Shilpa!

I've been asked about this a lot since Sparrow came out. Originally, Sparrow was supposed to be a standalone novel. But upon release, it became evident that neither me nor the readers were quite ready to say goodbye to these characters just yet.

LOL!

Yes, there will be a Shane and Izzy book, I'm working on it as we speak.

I know not everyone was rooting for Shane in Tyed but I'm hoping you'll change your mind when book #2 is out.
And thank you for your kind words! I'm so glad you enjoyed Blaire and Ty's story. (less)
