Hello, all! I received so many fantastic questions in last week’s THIRDS Thursday prompt submission/giveaway that I’ve had to split them in two. I’ll see about getting the rest of them posted really soon. Here’s the first half. Thank you so much to everyone who left such fantastic comments and amazing prompts! You all are awesome!
Q: Is Seb & Hudson book’s release date going to be pushed back because of Thick & Thin?
A: Nope! Seb and Hudson’s release day remains the same. I just had Thick & Thin submitted and scheduled for release before Seb & Hudson’s book was finished and submitted.
Q: When will we get release dates?
A: Unfortunately, I don’t get release dates until much closer to the time due to the production process, in case something happens to delay things. Usually I have a rough estimate of which month books will be released once the books are contracted, but that’s an estimate and things can change. Since my publisher is currently reviewing Seb and Hudson’s book, I don’t have an official estimate yet, but I’ll be sure to update the info here and on the THIRDS website and soon as I know more.
Q: Also, has Seb and Hudson’s book got a name yet?
A: Yes, it’s called Darkest Hour Before Dawn.
Q: *** Spoiler for Smoke & Mirrors *** Will Dex tell his Dad/team about how he has different DNA now?
A: In Thick & Thin, it’s time for Dex and Sloane to face their family, including the DD team, about the changes happening to Dex, their roles in the team, and their relationship. It’s not going to be easy, but then nothing with Destructive Delta ever is.
Q: With the spinoff with Dex & Sloane playing with TIN how many books will be in that series? Is this where Austen & Zach get their story?
A: There’s no set number of books yet decided for the TIN series, because although they’ll be numbered, I intend to write each one so it can be read on its own. The books won’t have an overall story arc the way the main THIRDS series has, but be more like individual missions. Readers will be able to come in at any point in the TIN series and pick up any of the books without being lost. However, Dex and Sloane’s relationship will continue to grow through the TIN series. Anything important from one book that might need to be brought up in another (in regards to something that happens between Dex and Sloane, their family, and Destructive Delta) will be briefly clarified so readers aren’t lost if they haven’t read that particular book.
Although Austen will be in the TIN series, he and Zach will be getting their own book which is why we haven’t had any THIRDS Thursdays written with them together because right now, Austen is keeping his distance. Or at least trying to. Their book is on my writing schedule to be written after the second TIN book.
Q: There seems to be a lot of male Therians but not very many female Therians. Is that just due to who the books focus on or is there something about Therian DNA that ups the chance of male offspring?
A: That has more to do with the focus of the books and who that couple has in their circle. There are as many female Therians as there are male Therians, though we do have slightly more male Therian agents in Unit Alpha’s Defense department. We have more female Therians in Intel and Recon. We will however be seeing more female Therians in the TIN series as many of them are operatives.
Q: How long have you been working on Thirds, like before actual publication of the first book?
A: I was working on the THIRDS almost two years before I started writing Hell & High Water, and that took about seven months to release and I was working on the rest of the series during that time.
Q: My question is will we get any babies?
A: I won’t say never, because we don’t know, but in an official THIRDS/TIN book, probably not. The weird thing is, I can see Ash becoming a dad before Sloane. The thing is that if Dex and Sloane were to become parents, it would mean their retirement. Sloane would never have a child and be involved in the THIRDS or something as risky as TIN. The risk of something happening to him and/or Dex is much higher, and after the way Dex lost his parents, and how Sloane grew up without parents, I think he would be very set against doing anything that might leave his child or children without him and/or Dex. Sloane’s been out in the field a long time, and been through so much, I don’t see him doing it for many more years, and I think at some point Dex will feel it’s time for him to step back and focus on family. I think they’ll want to retire and enjoy their lives together. We’ll have to see what happens.
Q: Are we going to see more of “Wolf” and will he be getting a book?
A: We’re going to be seeing much more of Wolf from Seb and Hudson’s book onward for several reasons–much to Dex’s annoyance. He may possibly be getting his own book. I’m certain he’ll be appearing in some THIRDS Thursday prompts from book 9 onward too.
