When will Slayers 4 be out/ When will the fourth Slayers be out — 30 Comments

  1. Hi Janette! Will the latest Slayers book (as well as the fourth one) be available in paperback or hardcover? I’ve got the previous two in hardcover and I definitely want some form of hard copy for the final two rather than just the kindle version. Also, I’d love a hard copy of “The Girl Who Heard Demons.” Will that be made available some time in the near future? I bought the kindle version but if it’s released in paperback, I’d purchase it in a heartbeat.

    • Yep. The book got so long that I broke it in half again. So there will be a fifth. However, the fifth is mostly written. I think there are a few scenes I still need to write because I’ve written alternate endings. Right now I’m writing a cowboy romance with my writers group. (I know, I know I get so easily distracted by other writing projects) But I’m planning for the fifth to come out in 2018…probably May or June.

  2. and by the way sorry girls my age tend to get angry if the book they want can’t even be found on the indigo or chapters website at.And trust me I know from experience in other words it is very frustrating when you drive 1 whole hour to go to a book store that doesn’t even have the book you want!!

  3. i wish authors had the super power to weight super fast because it took me to days to read your book!( I am a very fast reader and could not put the book down until the teacher threatens to confiscate it! )

    • I keep getting sidetracked by other projects, but the novella I needed to write is basically done now (Covertly Yours) and I’ll be back to writing on Slaryers 5 March 26. I’m about 90% done with the first draft, then it will go out to beta readers, then a copy editor, then it will be done. My guess is 4-5 months.

    • I should start sending all emails/questions about Slayers to my agent since he’s the reason I haven’t been able to work on the last book. He asked me to write three of my books into screenplays so he could shop them around. I’m mostly done with three, and good news/ bad news a producer wants me to write a screenplay for My Fair Godmother. So I started on that two days ago. The problem with writing screenplays is they’re such a long shot. Yeah, it would be cool if any of my books actually were made into movies but statistically speaking, the chances are slim. But I will finish the book–just not quick enough to make either you or me happy.

    • Still working on book 5. (Almost done with the first draft–I’m just rewriting a couple of scenes.) I’m behind schedule because my agent had me adapt four of my books into screenplays. Don’t know if anything will ever come of them, but it would be cool if it did. But now I’m back to work on Slayers 5.

  4. I have been searching for hours online trying to find “into the firestorm” and couldn’t find anything until I finally came across this post, I was disappointed because you said that it would be out by now and it isn’t. I read your other responses and I know that you had to change books into screenplays but aren’t agents supposed to make sure that you are not behind schedule and the book has a date that it comes out, instead of making you take time away from your book to do things that can be done once it is published? No disrespect or anything I just think that you need to be a little more organized and publish your book instead of failing to meet a deadline that you said you would meet. (Also (once again not to be disrespectful) but your website is a tiny bit hard to navigate) Love your writing though, it immediately captivated my interest and I have been Team Dirk since the moment he and Tori kissed the third day of camp, I really am a huge fan and absolutely love your books but I just can’t wait to read more and was hoping it would be out by now.

    • Hi Kadie,
      First off, thanks for being a fan of the series. I’m glad you’re eager to read the last book. And I’m sorry that it’s taken so long for it to come out. The problem is that a publisher put out the first two books but then decided not to go further with the series. I had only planned to write one more book. (Why did I think I could finish the story in 300 pages when it actually is closer to a 1,000?) I decided that I could just self-publish the last book, but knew I would have to work it around other writing projects.

      And because my agent isn’t making any money on the last book, he doesn’t even want me to finish the series. In fairness to him, it’s taken about three years of my time when I could be writing something for a publisher that would make us both money. But I really feel like I owe it to the fans to finish a series that I started. I didn’t want to leave the characters or the readers hanging.

      My agent called me a few days ago and wants me to work on a graphic novel but I told him I had to finish the Slayers series before I did anything else. There was much grumbling about that decision.

      At this point, I just need to go through the manuscript filling in descriptions and other parts I left until the end and then the first rough draft will be finished. (Although I have family coming in for the holidays and a new grandson, so this won’t be a really fast process.) If you would like to be on the review team and get an earlier copy of the book, email me and let me know.

      • Thank you so much for the response! Of course I would be more than thrilled to be on your review team! I have sent you a more detailed email at your email address with all of my info. Please see that email. I look forward to hearing from you again soon!
