Rose Gardner Mystery Series End Coming May 2016

Posted by on Nov 29, 2015 in General | 132 comments

A couple of weeks ago I hosted a two hour Facebook Q&A event about the Rose Gardner Mystery series. Toward the end of my two hours, I made a announcement that shocked many of my readers.

Many, many readers have asked me to write a novella between Thirty-Four and a Half Predicaments and Thirty-Five and a Half Conspiracies, and I’ve said no. There will be no novella. But… That doesn’t mean there can’t be bonus scenes. Over the summer, and maybe into the fall until the release of Thirty-Five in November, I’m going to release what I’m calling “bonus chapters.” These  chapters fall between Thirty-Four and the beginning of Thirty-Five. They will all be strictly other character POVs....
