How many books do you have planned for the Elements series?
If all goes according to plan, there will be five books in the Elements series. That’s how many books it will take to wrap up the current arc, at least. After that, I’ll be working on other projects, though I may still drop into the Elements world from time to time. It won’t be easy for me to say goodbye to these characters.
Why do the Elements books have different covers?
The series was first published with the distinct illustrated covers created by the amazingly talented Cynthia Fliege. After publishing Shifting Selves, I wanted to shake things up and commissioned eBook covers that were a bit more typical of the urban fantasy genre. Then, because people kept asking this question, I decided to make the urban fantasy covers available in print but keep the illustrated covers available as a special edition for those looking for something a little different.
Are the books appropriate for my teen/pre-teen/toddler?
You know, I thought I was writing adult books, but some readers have disagreed. I don’t know if it’s because the original illustrated cover looked more like a YA fantasy novel than an adult UF series, or if it’s because Aidan can be a bit awkward and immature. I wouldn’t put an official age limit on the books—hell, I was sneaking Harlequin Presents when I was 11, so I’m not one to lecture someone on appropriate reading. However, the books contain a fair bit of swearing, frequent drinking, and a slow-burn romance that heats up with each book.
What do you have planned beyond the Elements series?
World domination. Er, you meant what books I’m writing, didn’t you? I have the first book in an adventure fantasy all ready to go once the Elements series is complete. I also have more ideas than I can count for new series. So to answer, I’m not entirely sure, but I’m looking forward to finding out.
Have a question that’s not here? Hit me up, and I’ll answer as best I can—unless it’s about math or sports, in which case you’re on your own.
