Is it the end for Erika Foster?

You might have seen the news I posted a few weeks ago, that I am going to write a new crime series. The idea for a crime series centred around a forensic profiler has been knocking around in my head for the past couple of years, and I’m so excited to start work on something new, and to introduce you all to my new series character, Forensic Profiler Kate Marshall.

Since I made the announcement, so many people have asked if this is the end of Erika Foster. So, I wanted to write this post to reassure readers that I’m not going to stop writing the Erika Foster series. I have plans for many more books. I love writing them, and there is so much more life left in Erika, Moss, Peterson and the rest of the characters. I hope I can continue writing the series for years to come. I would just like the opportunity to write something different, and I’m lucky that my new publishers are very excited and enthusiastic about this new series.

I’ve been writing three books a year since 2011, which is when I started self-publishing my romantic comedy novels, and then from 2015, I started to publish the Erika Foster crime series with Bookouture. It has been exhilarating, and so much fun to write and publish at this pace, but it’s not something I want to continue to do. For my health and my sanity, I need to take my foot off the gas, just a little.

However, I don’t want this to sound like a gloomy blog post! I know how many of my readers eagerly await new books. I am still going to be writing every day, and my new publishers have given me the freedom to write my new Kate Marshall series. I still plan to write more Erika Foster books in the future, and another Coco Pinchard novel. So, there may be a slight slowing down of my publication schedule, but, for me, it means that I can keep healthy and sane, so I can write quality books for you all. I have always said that I am in this for the long run, and I hope to write for many years to come. As long as you all want to read books from me, I will write them!

Stay tuned for more news, I will keep you posted!
