Hi Angela,

I'm happy to be able to say there WILL be a third book. I'm two-thirds of the way through THE NEPTUNE PROMISE and hope to have a link posted on my website to places you can buy it in late October. In the story, Tobin, Dai and Nere and her dolphins are all back, along with Wasp and crew. Cam is about to put in an appearance, too. I can't wait to write that reunion!

Thank you for asking and caring!(less)

Right now my publisher is planning for my Neptune books to be a duology, but I do have a plot all figured out for a third book. I'd also love to give Robry and Bria their own spin off series. But these options all depend on how well sales go of the second boook: THE NEPTUNE CHALLENGE.(less)

“:Well, isn’t this cozy?:
Dai is grinning at me. We are packed in so tightly, I realize our shoulders and arms are touching.
:I think I owe that boat captain a favor,: he adds, a gleam of mischief in his dark eyes. :I wouldn’t mind if he decided to drive in circles over our heads for the next few hours.:
:I think your muscles would get a little cramped by then: I nod at his long legs, which he’s had to bend to fit into our hiding spot.
:The pain would be worth it,: he says, looking at me. I feel my cheeks heat up as I stare back at him. Is Dai actually flirting with me?”
Polly Holyoke, The Neptune Project

“Nere, there’s a chance I will see you again,” Cam says, his dark eyes intent. “If you ever need help, get word to me through the smugglers. I’ll come.”
I can only nod, afraid to trust my voice. I must look miserable, though, because moments later, he hugs me. I bury my face in his shoulder, his arms tighten around me, and finally I feel safe.
“No matter what happens, I’ll always love you,” he whispers in my ear. I close my eyes. Do I love him back? I just know Cam is more important to me than any friend I’ve ever had. I open my eyes and raise my face to him, and then he kisses me. I realize I’ve been waiting forever for this. Cam’s lips are soft and he smells like salt water and fresh sea air. I wrap my arms around his neck and kiss him back.”
Polly Holyoke, The Neptune Project

“While I’ve been talking with Mariah, Dai has unfolded himself from our hiding spot. Now he floats directly in front of it, refusing to move out of my way until I meet his gaze.
His eyes are serious when I finally look at him. :Nere, just for the record, I don’t think you are an idiot, and Lena will never be my type.:”
Polly Holyoke, The Neptune Project
