Over the last couple of months I have gotten *lots* of emails saying, "I've visited your website and don't see anything saying there will be more Walker Papers! Don't tell me the series is ending! Augh!" I could've sworn I had something about it posted on cemurphy.net, but let me just make it clear:

Don't worry. The series isn't ending. :) The next Walker Papers book (tentatively titled CAULDRON BORNE) will be out sometime in 2009, and I'm contracted for two more books after that.

However, between now and then, I will have a new urban fantasy series, The Negotiator Trilogy, coming out. Book one, HEART OF STONE, is out in November 2007. Book two, HOUSE OF CARDS, is out in March 2008, and book 3, HANDS OF FLAME, is out in September 2008.

But wait! There's more! I also have *another* new series starting next year. This series (tentatively titled The Inheritors' Cycle) currently consists of THE QUEEN'S BASTARD (June 2008) and THE PRETENDER'S CROWN (January 2009).

So, that's right, that's _five books_ you get from me between COYOTE DREAMS and the next Walker Papers book. I'm hoping all those new books will salve the pain of not getting a new Walker Papers for two years... :)

Thank GOD! But 2 years???
I'm glad there are so many more books coming out between now and then. Are they all going to be published by Luna? I notice they are only doing 1 a month and there was at least 2 months they didn't do any at all. Luna books are great. Fantasy for chicks!

Re: Thank GOD! But 2 years???
The Negotiator Trilogy will be out from Luna. The Inheritors' Cycle will be out from Del Rey. :)

Sorry, Kit, but nothing can salve the pain of having to wait another two years for another Walker Papers book. Especially not the additional pain of being left hanging in the middle of a couple of other undoubtedly fantastic series.:-)

Well, the Negotiator Trilogy is *only* a trilogy, so you'll get that whole story a-bingity-bangity-bong. We'll see how many books there end up being in the Inheritors' Cycle. I've sold two; I think I'd like to write 5. :)

A-bingity-bangity-bong? I betcha Grit doesn't talk like that. ;)

Finally, what I've been waiting for--a list of forthcoming books. This is not to say I won't have a hard time waiting for the next Walker Papers book(s), but yes, I'll have something to keep me occupied in the intervening two years. I'll just wait here, in my little corner, waiting for a scrap of writing from one of my favorite new authors to tide me over until I get to find out what happens after the bomb has been dropped in the first CEM series. Sniff, sniff, don't mind me.

laughing yet?

I'm still going to be missing Joanne! Considering this series led me to actually investigate Shamanism as an actual religious practice and begin journeying myself... the series means a lot to me. So, like everyone else -- yay for new books! I shall most certainly read them. But, alas, as this series has actually become my #1 favorite (and for a lifetime reader and English teacher, that says a lot!) I will miss Gary, Joanne, Morrison, Billie, and, well, everyone!

Thank goodness you're continuing the Walker Paper stories; I just picked all three up (finished all 3 in 3 days!!) and was SO incredibly disappointed with the conclusion of the relationship between Morrison and Joanne that I was about to write you off! Thank heavens for the internet to tell me their story isn't finished yet! You better get the next one out fast though cuz that ending seriously distressed me! Keep on chugging!!

Well, there are 6 more books anticipated in the series! I couldn't have a happily ever after yet! :) Glad you enjoyed them. :)
