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.

Glad you loved it! (less)

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)
