Publishers like to look at current sales to determine whether a series should be continued, so the jury is still out on that. But I do have #3 plotted and am going ahead with the writing, so fingers crossed! By the way, if your daughter would like any "swag"--bookmarks, stickers, etc.--just drop me a line at readerchat [at] cmcaterer [dot] com. Thanks for asking!(less)
