After completing the final story for my Forbidden anthology, which was a last-minute addition (“Divinely Illicit” – Mello’s story), I knew I would continue all the stories. But I wanted to pose the question to readers, give you the option of choosing the story you wanted to see continued. Many have asked for continuations for all the stories, so that is what I intend to do.
So far, “Tasteful Taboo’s” continuation is complete. The response to Indecent Arrangement has been amazing! I was so nervous about this story. It’s different from any other story in my catalogue although it has elements similar in books I’ve written. Indecent Arrangement is the first and only of its kind unless future characters tell me otherwise. The other stories from the anthology will end with happily ever afters tho for, the most part.
The continuation for the second story from the anthology, Karma Coated, is completed. I typed the end on that earlier this month. The tentative title is Meant To Be, and this story is so sweet. Genesis and August’s relationship is passionate – so damn passionate – genuine, and full of emotion. The story will pick up a week after Genesis’s husband’s death and the night before his funeral. I’ll give more details in a “What To Expect” post the closer we get to a release date. That story will be available next year. I have two other releases this year to focus on and I don’t want to rush the process. I’ll post dates the closer we get to that time.
So there will be two more stories from the anthology to continue Joi and Ayanna’s stories. Mello already has a story, so he will not get another.
For Joi’s story, her love interest is a character mentioned in the No Fraternizing series. I’m not saying which one just yet. Readers will also get an update on Lila and Manny since they will make an appearance in Joi’s story. I can’t wait for you to read that one. It’s outlined, just not written yet but soon.
Another trend you’ll notice is the characters in the Forbidden series will also make appearances in the series I’m planning for 2020. And the characters from that series will appear in Forbidden or will be mentioned. Both series borrow a similar concept. I’ll get into this in a future post.
Have you read the anthology? I’ve heard it’s a book you can’t put down. Not one story is like the other. Read a preview below!
