I have just finished your book The Endless Forest. I must admit it was with considerable trepidation I began to read the epilogue and could quickly see the direction we were headed. I had suspected such an ending was coming but I am devastated all the same. Please, I beg you, tell me you will be starting a new series along the same tenor as the Bonner series! I have enjoyed this family so
much and your storytelling I am hoping this is not the end of this genre o writing for you.
A grieving fan
I hate to think of you grieving, but on the other hand I am glad to know that the Wilderness series means so much to you. I can tell you that the novel I’m working on is about some of the Bonner grandchildren The first novel in what I hope is a trilogy is set in Manhattan in 1883. Its tentative title is The Gilded Hour.
Right now the wondrous Jill (my agent) has one offer from a publisher and is talking to other houses, as well, so I can be reservedly optimistic in saying that GH will in fact see the light of day. But publishers are far harder to engage these days, so there is still the possibility it might not happen.
If you are really interested in following along as a couple of Nathaniel’s and Elizabeth’s grandchildren make their way, please leave a comment. You never know what little bits of information will make publishers happy.
