Thank you! Yes, I'm sure there will be. They just have to tell me what they've been up to so I can jot it down (if that makes any sense).

In the meantime I've got a short story featuring them coming out in a free anthology next month. Will post links here.

Three things.

When people mail you out of the blue to say how much they like your books.

When you can help new and aspiring writers, especially if it involves them avoiding making the mistakes you made.

When you find something you wrote ages ago, read it and think, "Oh, that's quite good. Did I really write it?"(less)

Did I answer this? Please forgive me if I didn't. I suspect this came before Old Sins (book 4) launched and I've just finished book 5. Riptide have the audio rights so you would need to ask them. :)
