I’ve been getting this question a lot lately so I thought I’d, you know, answer it, LOL.
The Petal, Georgia series is a spin off from my Chase Brothers books and the first one is Once and Again, Nathan Murphy’s book. The books will be, of course, set in Petal, the same town the Chase books are set in. When the books are about the Murphy’s you can assume you’ll at the very least see glimpses of the Chases as Tate and Matt are married and there’s a lot of crossover there.
After I finish this book I’m writing now it’s my plan to finish the proposal for Beth Murphy’s book, which will follow Once and Again – and to get it to my editor at Samhain. Right now I’ve got two active series with Samhain and if I can do the scheduling right, I’d like to see a book out every 10 months or so and that would alternate between my de La Vega Cats series and the Petal books.
Tentatively I’m thinking the series will be 4 books and the first two books are about Murphys but I don’t know just yet about the next two just yet. This is something I’ll be working out when I get the proposal for Beth’s book written.
They’ll be sensual romance like the Chase books and it’s my aim that they all be long enough to go to print as well.
Um, I think that’s all I know but if you have any more questions just fire away in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer.
Christine asked: Any clue as to whose book will come out after Gibson? Also any chance that a ebook is coming out btw. Heart of Darkness and Captivated?
I don’t know who I’ll write next after Gibson at this point but you’ll be meeting some of his people in his book so one of them in particular, Dario is appealing to me at the moment.
Gibson’s book will definitely be out in digital. In fact it goes digital first and then 10 months to a year later it’ll go to print. As for Heart of Darkness and Captivated, I’d assume yes because all my Berkley books have been so far. They usually don’t show up for pre-order until far closer to the release date though.
