I have a bit of time off, and I am doing a bit more in-depth upcoming releases hunting than I usually get a chance to do. The funny thing I noticed, though, is how many authors seem to be MIA – or at least info on what they are working on is. For example, I figured that after something like 7 years, Stacia Kane would finally have some news on her 6th Downside Ghosts book. But nope. I am holding off starting the series until the next on is in the bag, but it looks like it is going to be staying on the TBR mole-hill indefinitely.
Also, what is up with the IAD series? Kresley Cole was supposed to release Shadow’s Kiss in November, but then there was an announcement that Mina’s story was being pushed back and instead the next release was going to feature Munro and Kereney. Ok. Great. And…nada. No info. Release date. Nothing. I sound whiny, but do you remember the days of two Immortals books a year? I do. Now, it has already been a year and a half since the last book, with the next one coming…sometime.
I have been keeping an eye out for Alyssa Day to get back to her Poseidon’s Warriors series, but I haven’t been able to find out any more info, either. March in Atlantis was due out, well, in March, but then stuff happened and it got pushed back. And back. The last I had heard about it was on a Facebook post in June – which said it would be out by the end of the following week. I will keep looking, but so far, no luck. This is another one that I put on the one-day list because I know that delays are guaranteed, and I don’t want to get into them until the series is rolling again.
The Dragonfury series from Coreene Callahan is another one I was trying to track down info on with absolutely no luck. I really like this one (and the Scottish spin-off books, too), but the last release was late last year. I dug around Facebook a bit and couldn’t find anything, and her official website lists future titles – with no release dates. I do hope there is more to come, though, because I have enjoyed pretty much every story in the series so far and there are quite a few more characters to focus on.
Oh, and since I sound all bitter and gripe-y, does anyone know what is going on with the Fever series? Karen Marie Moning has been pretty quiet about what she has planned, and I haven’t been able to find out any info at all. Goodreads does list another book in the series, but that isn’t something that can really be depended on at all. I thought I had read somewhere that after Dani and Ryodan got their story, things would be changing a bit to focus on other characters like Christian McKeltar and some of the Nine. Did I dream that, or do any of you remember reading it, too?
So, does anyone have any info on some of my MIA book requests? Do you have any of your own that you just can’t seem to pin down the what, where, and when on? Sorry if this sounded all bitchy because I didn’t mean it that way, it was just that I seemed to hit a wall so many times in such a short time and it seemed weird.
