Hello, beautiful reader.
It has been a very busy few months since The Cruelest Mercy’s release, and around here I’ve been enjoying the last of some lovely fall weather, getting our five-year-old settled in to kindergarten (and telling her she absolutely has to stop calling her friends her ‘minions’ at school), and most importantly – plotting new books.
Many of you know that I originally sold The Kinder Poison series as a duology to Penguin – but soon after I finished doing edits on the first book, I realized there was much more story left than could fit inside a single sequel. I wrote The Cruelest Mercy with this in mind, tailoring the character arcs and the war thread to be about halfway where they needed to be by the end. But since this book wasn’t part of the original sale, there was a lot still to figure out in terms of how to add this story on in a way that made sense for both me and my publisher.
I know it’s been a long wait while my publisher and I crunched numbers and weighed our options. But I’m so thrilled to finally announce that book 3 of the series, and the conclusion to The Kinder Poison trilogy (!!), will release in early 2023!
More details, teasers, and general shenanigans to come. In the meantime, be sure to save the book to your Goodreads to-read shelf so you have it on your radar!
Until next time,
THE KINDER POISON 3 RELEASE DATE: currently slated for Feb 14, 2023
