- Tina Folsom updates us on her “Scanguards Vampires” series news:
What’s next with Scanguards Vampires? I get that questions a lot lately. So, here’s what I can tell you:
- Book 7 will be Oliver’s story. I will start writing in about a week (have to come up with a plot first ). I hope to finish the book by the end of the year
- Oliver’s book will not be the last
- Other characters who will most likely get a book are: Cain, Blake, Wesley, and new characters I’m introducing in future books.
- Yes, Thomas and Eddie will get a book – but not just yet. M/m romance is not everybody’s cup of tea, so I expect some readers to jump ship when it comes to them, but nevertheless, I will write it.In the meantime, enjoy book 6, Quinn’s Undying Rose (Scanguards Vampires #6).
