I really don't know as I never plan ahead. At the end of each book, I wait to see if a new character -- and completely original new story -- emerge. If so, then I go forward. If that doesn't happen some day, then I will end the series' rather than force formulaic books... LOL I do know that as of right now, there are new books coming in each (being written). :-) Hope that helps just a little. :-) :-) :-) (less)

“I don't know that I understand the
human concept of jealousy. I'm not afraid of any other male taking you from me because no man who ever tried such a thing would live. But yes I hold what is mine close to me.”
Tessa Dawn, Blood Destiny

“I'll tell you what: How about no more suicide attempts; no more walking off with strangers; no more trying to fight vampires with silly, human weapons--silver bullets only work on werewolves, Jocelyn--and no more holding Nachari's hand. And we'll be just fine.”
Tessa Dawn, Blood Destiny

“He has hazel eyes " Nachari remarked in astonishment.
He looked over at Jocelyn with approval.
"Yeah well " Marquis grumbled "we can toughen him up make up for that one little...feminine mishap."
Nachari feigned insult. "My eyes are green as well Marquis."
Marquis shrugged. "Yeah...and you became a wizard.”
Tessa Dawn, Blood Destiny
