No, there will not be a third book with Kate and Johnny and this particular cast of characters. Their story ends here with all the loose ends tied up in the 1940's.

However, I have written an outline and some sample chapters for a prequel. I so enjoyed imagining the backstory (which you see glimpses of in the novels, particularly in both prologues) that I am interested in going back to tell my version of Cinderella and what happened to the dress immediately after the servant Nadzia hides it....but that will likely be another two-book endeavor. I haven't figured out a way to make it all happen in one book...so I'm still thinking about it--one book or two???.

In the meantime, I'm writing another fairytale/historical mashup that will come out fall 2016 and I'm having lots of fun with it. Was that a longer answer than you were expecting?(less)

I'm so glad you enjoyed DRESS. SHOES ties up the story with those characters, although perhaps one day I'll do a prequel (I have ideas...) In the meantime, I've got a Sleeping Beauty inspired novel coming out Oct 2016 called Spindle (link: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...) And a Snow White idea is floating around in my brain, so that might be next. I've got a newsletter sign up on my website if you want to know more details about upcoming books :) Fairy tale and otherwise.(less)

“If he were the prince, he would spend day and night in training. He would pour over battle plans and come up with new ways to defend his kingdom and keep his people safe. The only thing that Nigel seemed to pour over was the cook’s weekly menu.”
Shonna Slayton, The Tower Princess

“He wished he’d have said “I love you.” But how can a person know when it’s the last time they’ll talk to someone?”
