I'm so glad you enjoyed the book. Yes, I definitely plan to continue the series - book 3, The Gargoyle Gets His Girl, will be out August 1st, and I'm currently working on book 4. Sebastian and Julian will definitely get their own books! There's a definite possibility for Bridget and Jenna too.

You just never know! ;o) But I do love writing in this world and am happy to keep the books going as long as readers are interested.

Have a great day!(less)

“Pain always seemed to make her more beautiful.”
Kristen Painter, Flesh and Blood

“Pain brings clarity.”
Kristen Painter, Flesh and Blood

“That movie we saw tonight really freaked me out."

Her brows rose incredulously. "I'm a ghost, you're a shape-shifter, you live with a cursed vampire, and a zombie movie freaked you out. Honey, I love you, but that's a bold-faced lie. What gives?”
Kristen Painter, Bad Blood
