I have at least eight more books planned for The Ember War series. Outlines for the next two books are on my desk and I'll write them back to back after I finish with my current project.

“No one had to order an American to save the oppressed. It’s part of their nature to see others live free, even at the sacrifice of their own lives.”
Richard Fox, The Ember War

“We expected that your species would have progressed to the edge of your solar system by now. To see such potential squandered on wars and Internet cat videos was disheartening,”
Richard Fox, The Ember War
