I'm so glad you've enjoyed it. There IS another book in the works, though it's more of a spinoff than a direct continuation of the trilogy. It's working title is POLYMAKER. I recently announced it on my socials, but here's the description from Publisher's Weekly:

According to Stringer, the novel, which is set in the world of the author’s Paper Magician series, tells of Alvie Brechenmacher, a young woman who travels to England to “realize her dream of becoming a Polymaker—a plastics magician—and discover its hidden spells under the nephew of the renowned Magician Tagis Praff.”

I'm drafting it now. I hope you'll like it!(less)

Hey guys!

I just turned in my copy edits for Smoke and Summons, the first book of my new trilogy! I'm so eager for this book to release. And we finally have a release date! January 22, 2019. With luck the entire trilogy will release that year, so fingers crossed. (This will also be my longest published book, complete at 96,000 words. For reference, The Paper Magician is 65,000.)

“Faith is a very personal thing, really. Just because you don’t meet with a group of people once a week who believe everything exactly the way you do doesn’t mean you don’t believe in something.”
Charlie N. Holmberg, The Paper Magician

“Everyone has a dark side! But it’s their choice whether or not they cultivate it.”
Charlie N. Holmberg, The Paper Magician

“But she still had time. Surely she still had time. Stories like this one weren’t meant to end badly.”

“Cadoc sighed. “Someday, chief, I’ll avenge your sense of humor. I don’t know who murdered it, but it died before its time.”
Caitlyn McFarland, Shadow of Flame

“The world still has rules, we’ve just been playing with an incomplete set.”
Caitlyn McFarland, Soul of Smoke

“Wake her up,” she commanded Ashem.

The dark man folded his arms across his chest. “Politeness is the sinew that holds the wing together.”

Exasperated, Kai bared her teeth. “That is especially rich, coming from you. What is it, some kind of dragon proverb?”
Caitlyn McFarland, Soul of Smoke

“We don’t have that kind of magic anymore. This world—your world—you could call it our post-apocalypse.”
Caitlyn McFarland, Soul of Smoke

“Talking to Rhys was nothing like talking to Cadoc. With Cadoc, everything was a game. He smoldered because he meant to smolder. There was nothing calculated or put on about Rhys, and that made him more mesmerizing than Cadoc could ever hope be.”
Caitlyn McFarland, Soul of Smoke
