Eric J. Gates Hi Rod.

Nice to hear from you. Glad you are enjoying the series. It started out as a birthday gift for my cousin's daughter but readers wanted more, so it grew from there. The final book in the series will be out at the end of the year, but in the meantime if you like the strong female characters in 'the CULL' series, take a look at 'Outsourced' and its sequel 'Primed'. Major Bridget Mason, a Defense Intelligence Agency agent, is gaining quite a following from readers.

Best wishes,
Eric
