Hi Pcsaust,

First things first, thanks for reading! I'm glad you enjoy the books. I try to keep them entertaining.

In answer to your question, yep, I expect there will be at least 2 more Samual Branch novels to wrap up the current story arc.

I know the long gaps between the books are frustrating. The biggest challenge for me at this point is coming up with plausible threats that Sam can't simply "Branch smash" into oblivion. It usually takes my imagination a while to supply me with something complicated enough to be worthy of Sam's attention/fury.

The good news is that I've done a little work on Book 4 already. My goal is to get the next book out sometime in 2019.

In the meantime, I've put up a works-in-progress meter on the homepage of my website (http://ericdontigney.com). I don't update the meter as often as I should, but it'll give you a general sense of how close I am to finishing first drafts.

If you liked the Branch novels, you should definitely give my other book - Contingency Jones: The Complete Season One - a try. The majority of people who read the Branch novels and Jones have liked both.

I've also got another book coming out later this summer. It's a paranormal mystery called The Midnight Ground. It's not a Branch novel, but it lives in a similar neighborhood to the Branch books. It might help tide you over until I get that next Branch book written.

Again, thanks for reading!

Best,
Eric D.

Right now, I'm trying to finish some books that I started and never quite got finished. Jitterbug Perfume (Tom Robbins), The Omnivore's Dilemma (Michael Pollan), and The Troupe (Robert Jackson Bennett). Once I finish those, and the other stuff on my currently reading list, I'll be moving on to American Elsewhere and City and Blades (both by Robert Jackson Bennett), The Looking Glass Wars books (Frank Beddor), The Thirteenth Tale (Diane Setterfield), and The Musician's Quest (George MacDonald). Assuming that doesn't take me clear to the end of the year, there is theoretically a new Dresden Files novel coming out sometime....someday....eventually. Butcher promised. Also, if Neil Gaiman publishes anything else new this year, I'll read that. (less)

It’s been a while. Despite all my best intentions to get back on the blogging train, I keep getting distracted…probably by shiny objects. Still, there are things happening. First, the big news that you already know if you follow me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ericdontigneywriter/).
