Dragon’s Breath Series FAQ

Last updated- Nov 17th, 2016

I thought I’d take the time here to answer any questions readers may have about the Dragon’s Breath Series.  This assumes you have finished the first three books up to Forged by Flames.  You should read each question carefully and if it’s something you don’t want spoiled, skip it!  If you have any questions not answered here, feel free to ask them in the comments section below and I’ll get back to you.

1) How many books are planned for this series?

I have story arcs in mind that could go for about seven to eight novels.

2) When is the next installment coming out?

Christmas with Dragons will be released on December 18th.  Though this is a holiday book and not as long as the others, it will still be closer to novel length than novella.  Current estimate is between 45-50k words.  Average length of the others is between 98k-104k.

3) Will the romance get any heavier in this series?

It will evolve slowly throughout the series with highs and lows, but you can certainly expect developments with each novel and the final book will have a happy ending.  As for explicit content, I’ve chosen to keep things lighter and cleaner than the Sensor novels. Kissing and embracing are about as far as the Dragon’s Breath Series books will go.

4) Will Conrad, Phoebe and the other side characters continue to have as much involvement in future books?

Yes.  Some more than others and you can expect their POVs to show up when the situation is right for it.

5) How much time will have passed between the end of book 3 and the holiday book?

A little over two weeks (it will be around December 19th/20th when Christmas with Dragons starts).

6) When will the next full length novel be coming out?

The plan is to release Captured in Flames in August/September (2017), followed by the next book (to be titled) in November/December 2017.  More on that when the time gets closer.

7) Will Forged by Flames be coming out in audio format?

Yes.  My publisher has set a release date of February 14th, 2017.

8) Will the Dragon’s Breath Series be coming back to Kindle Unlimited (KU)?

Not in the near future.  I will reconsider putting the books back into the program next summer (2017) when it comes closer to releasing another installment.  But please keep in mind that as long as the books are in KU I can’t make them available to my B&N, Kobo, and iTunes readers because of Amazon terms and conditions with the Kindle Unlimited program.

The best I can do is compromise.  Stalked by Flames stayed in KU for over a year before I finally put it up on the other retailers for the first time.  Dancing with Flames was also exclusive to Amazon for the first three months after it released.  For now, I’m giving the readers on the other platforms a chance to try out the series.  I want to see how that goes, along with monitoring any changes in terms that might happen with KU, before deciding whether to put the series back into the program.

  1. Are these books in traditional print or only kindle?
    I am enjoying the writing but my kindle seems to keep me awake whereas books help me sleep/ relax more. It’s an ADD thing I hear
    Thank you

  2. Can book 6 in the Sensor series and book 2 in the Dragons series be pre-ordered? If so, where would I find the ebooks to do so? I find pre-ordering is like giving yourself a surprise gift. On the day it’s available you open your Kindle and “SURPRISE!” your favorite author has sent you a present.

    Thank you in advance (pun intended) for answering my question.

    • Hello Robert, thanks for asking your question. I don’t do pre-order with my books but I do have a release alert sign-up list so that you can get a message from me as soon as the book is out with the retailer links. This is where you can sign up: http://eepurl.com/-pb-L

      I don’t spam anyone. It is used only to notify fans for when I have released a new book.

  3. I was wondering if this series would be appropriate for young readers. My 11 year old is a huge dragon fan and loves the Wings of Fire Series, and I think he may be interested in this series as well.

    thanks,

    • Hello, Mark. Thanks for your interest in the series. Unfortunately, I don’t think it would be appropriate for an eleven-year-old. There isn’t any explicit content in the books, but there is foul language. My uncle, who has lost most of his vision, listened to the audio version of Stalked by Flames while on a road trip with his grandchildren. The two eight-year-old girls in the vehicle loved it and were able to recite back all the events they heard (without repeating the bad words) and infer things about the story with surprising insight, but I’m still rather uncomfortable that they heard the cuss words. I’d meant for the series to target 16+ readers. It would probably be better to wait a few years, and consider the language issue.
