Rita Stradling Thank you for your question! I was hoping to have it out in 2016, but it may be late in the year or even early 2017 (hopefully not! fingers crossed).

So far two books are planned (Colorless and Silver) as well as a prequel (Hazel) --though the prequel may only be available to my newsletter subscribers (for free). Hazel definitely will be available to them, but I'm still on the fence about whether or not I'm going to fully publish the prequel to online retailers. (less)

“Love didn't seem like something that could be organized or contained; it should be messy and emotional, like exploding and imploding with someone at the exact same time.”
Rita Stradling, Ensnared

“I don’t agree. The morning fog makes the graveyard beautiful, soft and sad as a voice humming a lullaby, but I don’t tell her what I think. She’d call me a weirdo.
- Raven Smith”
Rita Stradling, The Deception Dance

“It’s almost as if all the sleazy men in this country attended the same seminar, where they learned that all American women go to Italy to sleep with them. The teacher at the seminar told them, “You don’t need to learn English to seduce an American woman, you only need to learn one word: ‘bella.’ If you say it, their belts will snap and pants fall from their hips.If I ever find that seminar teacher, I’m going to kick him in the shin.”

“Yes, I'm too mad to punish you right now. We'll talk about it when we get home. Go brush your teeth, comb your hair, put on dry clothes, and get the guns. We're going to Wal-Mart.”
Ilona Andrews, On the Edge

“We are all fools in love”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

“This moment contains all moments.”
C.S. Lewis

“Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things.”
George Carlin

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey
