Robert’s Recent Updates

Robert Beatty answered Julia's question: Robert  Beatty
I love Braeden also. He is closest to myself as a person (loves birds and animals, etc.). On the other hand, the funnest character to write is definitely Lady Rowena because she is powerful, smart, and unpredictable.
Robert Beatty answered Tiah Varner's question: Robert  Beatty
I'm not planning a 5th book at this time. I tried to end Book 4 in a satisfying way that pointed to Serafina and Braeden's future together. On the other hand, I may write more Serafina books out in the future.
Willa of Dark Hollow by Robert  Beatty
"After I finished I sat in awe. And just said “wow”. Mr. Beatty has done it again. What a very surprising conclusion and an amazing book. The story had me hooked from the first chapter. As usual he makes his words come to life and I couldn’t put it do" Read more of this review »
