So many of you have been emailing me to ask what’s going to happen in the next Janna Mystery and also ask when it will be coming out. I answered, in good faith, that I hoped Book 5 would be published next year (2009). Yes, there are lots of questions still to be answered before Janna completes her quest, and yes, they’ll be covered in Books 5 & 6 (Sage for Sanctuary and Thyme for Trust.) I’m working on Book 6 at the moment, but unfortunately my publishers have told me that they have no plans to publish any more of the series at present (because of disappointing book sales.) This is really disappointing for me as well as for all of you who love the series and can’t wait for the next one to come out. Let me just say that I am chasing opportunities overseas and I’ll keep you posted via my blog. In the meantime, I am so sorry as I feel I’m letting everyone down, even though this is not my decision. I believe in Janna and in her quest, and I’m going to do my best to finish the series in the hope that one day you’ll be able to read the series to its conclusion. Meanwhile, thank you for writing to let me know how much you’re enjoying the Janna Mysteries; it’s your faith in Janna’s journey that encourages me to keep on writing the series, and I won’t give up on it.
