Hi, Krine!

My short answer is, I don't know. The long answer is, I'll likely keep writing that series as long as my publisher continues to exercise the option. I recently singed the contract to write books #13, 14, & 15, so thru 2017 at the very least! :)

Hope that helps.

Best,

Leslie,

My favorite word in the entire English language is the "f*bomb." I've dropped lots of them in my career, and, I'm unapologetic about it. Asking me to use less of them is, I'm so sorry to say, completely inappropriate. I know you don't mean to insult me, but can you see how insulting it is to ask an author to censor herself in the future? It's bad form and truly not appreciated. I would end by telling you that if you didn't like the words that I use to please find another author to read, but more than anything I don't wish to upset you, or make you feel bad. I simply wish to educate you, and make you look at this from a different perspective - mine as the story's creator. You wouldn't limit an artist's use of vibrant colors, so please don't attempt to limit my pallet either. More than anything I wish for you to accept my writing as it is, and enjoy it for what it is,...f*bombs and all.

My best to you,

Victoria (less)

Fated for Felony by Victoria Laurie
"This is one of my favorite Psychic Eye books so far. Abby *really* has to test her mettle in this one — more than she ever has before. There are twists and turns, as usual, told with Laurie’s classic Abby wit and sass — and the ending is just ... wow" Read more of this review »

“Even in the darkest and most cruel person, there is still a kernel of good. And within the most perfect champion, there is darkness. The question is, will one give in to the dark or the light? It's something we decide with every choice we make, every day that we exist. What might not be evil to you could be evil to someone else. Knowing this makes us powerful even without magic.”
Morgan Rhodes, Falling Kingdoms
