2020 Publishing Plans

Hello & Happy New Year!

I’m excited to share my writing and publishing plans for 2020 with you. I’m popping in today to share my publishing plans for 2020 and to ask for your help! Read on for more details.

What’s Coming Up for the Royals?

There will be a Royals spin-off featuring Arianna & Finn in Brazenbourg! *cue the confetti*

This will be a duet and the first book ends in a BIG cliffhanger and, so you won’t have to wait, I’ll release both books close together. Because they both basically need to be ready at the same time before I can release either, that means the writing/editing/prepping process takes a little longer and will be my focus for a lot of the year. I’ve already sent drafts of both books to my editor, but they will need A LOT of work when they come back to me. There’s no release date yet, but maybe late summer/early fall.

Any Other Books?

Slight spoiler ahead if you haven’t read Ethan & Anda’s story…

Another spin-off series is coming! I loved Ethan & Anda’s story so much that I’ve already started planning out (and writing!) their spin-off Vollywood series. This series will feature a new couple you haven’t met in each book from the glamourous (and not so glamourous) world of tv, movies, and music, but our favorite secret agent couple will definitely appear as they continue Anda’s work to take down Envision. I’ll be writing the first few books in this series this year, but not sure if I’ll publish them (the first two may end up being an early 2021 release), but I’ll let you know if that changes.

As for another Royals book, since the Brazenbourg duet is coming out, I won’t be writing a full book for any of the other royals (at least not at this time). To date, I’ve written about all the Royal siblings except Carolina, but her book isn’t scheduled for 2020 though you’ll see it in the future. I may have another royal surprise for you at some point, to tide you over until the Brazenbourg duet comes out, but I won’t say any more now in case it doesn’t pan out.

What Else?

Print & audio are coming, too! I know, I know, I’ve said that before, but things are already in motion! I just need YOUR help with the audio – if you like to listen to audiobooks, please complete a short survey. If you do, you’ll have the opportunity to share your favorite narrators and even give feedback on release dates!


There’s also a LOT going on personally this year. My father will be having major surgery at some point (and I may need minor surgery, too – eep!) so things may change. I’m feeling positive about everything right now, but I’ll let you know how release dates & all the things may change along the way.

Please let me know what you think by commenting below. I hope you’re as excited for everything coming up as I am!
