I currently have ideas for at least 5 more books after Dagger's Sleep, but there are a lot of fairy tales out there and I'm sure I'll get more ideas as I write future books. The nice part about the series is that it is open-ended and flexible.

What I can tell you is I have ideas for Snow White, Snow White and Rose Red/East of the Sun West of the Moon, Twelve Dancing Princesses, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast. Some will take place after Dagger's Sleep, and some during the 100 years of sleep. You'll definitely see Jadon, Daemyn, Alex, Rosanna, and other characters from Dagger's Sleep again, though they might not be main characters.

That being said, I don't know if I'll write all six books in a row. You might get other books and other series in between books to change things up.

Sorry, that's kind of a vague answer. I hope it gives some answers at least. :) (less)

Allison Tebo
Allison Tebo added a status update: I've been listening to a lot of audio books lately - and I'm loving it.

I have a tendency to INHALE books - to the point where I am not fully comprehending or appreciating the words - but audio has not only forced me to slow down, it's immersed me into other worlds - a total sensory experience.

Romanov by Nadine Brandes
"Any ANASTASIA fans in the room?

I have been DYING to share this news with everyone! ROMANOV will be another historical fantasy standalone. And now that I'm squealing, I'm at risk of revealing spoilers (BECAUSE I'M THAT EXCITED.) For those who want..." Read more of this review »

Tricia Mingerink is 13% done with The Vikings: I know they are technically not "books," but I'm really excited that the Great Courses on on Goodreads and I can count them toward my reading goal.

On another note, everyone is now going to know just how much of a history nerd I am. Yes, I listen to college level history courses for fun.
