Hello, all! Thank you so much for joining me here today at Sinfully for my monthly author column. A little over two and a half weeks ago Smoke & Mirrors was released. It’s the 7th book in the THIRDS series. The day before its release during the THIRDS 2-year anniversary event, I announced the new THIRDS series for 2017. So far the response has been amazing, and it’s incredibly exciting and touching to hear the enthusiasm for the new series. The fact that so many readers are willing to follow Dex and Sloane wherever they go is incredible, and not something I’ll ever take for granted.
In 2017 we have the new TIN series which is still part of the THIRDS world. The difference being that Dex and Sloane will be the focus of the new series. As the two set off on a new adventure together as a part of an elite agency, they’ll have to balance the next step in of their relationship, family life, their new roles at the THIRDS, their new kick-ass identities, and for Dex his new abilities. It’s not going to be easy by any means, and they’ll both find themselves pulled in different directions concerning work and home life.
Wolf made his debut in Smoke & Mirrors, and you can bet it’s not the last we’ve seen of him. In fact, from Book 8 onwards, we’re going to be seeing a lot more of him, along with Seb and Hudson, who will also have a good deal of new to get used to. Change will be hard for everyone, especially for certain members of Destructive Delta. Tony will also be facing some challenges, and making some tough decisions.
The new series will be set up as standalone books. The relationship between Dex and Sloane will continue to grow. Happily Ever After is never the end, and in this case just the beginning. Our dynamic duo will continue to grow, but their missions will be standalone. This means that readers can pick up any book and not be totally lost as would be the case with the main THIRDS series since the plotline is continuous. We’ll also be meeting new characters and running into old characters that may just surprise you. There will be action, adventure, twists, turns, humor, sexy times, and a whole lot more. Hang onto you gummy bears, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Life for Dexter J. Daley has never been easy, but he’s always found a way to pick himself back up with a smile on his face. Taken from his home, and the arms of his boyfriend and THIRDS partner, Sloane Brodie, Dex finds himself in a situation as mysterious and lethal as the Therian interrogating him. Dex learns what he’s secretly believed all along: his parents’ death wasn’t an accident.
Discovering the whole truth about John and Gina Daley’s homicide sets off a series of events that will change Dex and Sloane’s lives forever. As buried secrets rise to the surface and new truths are revealed, Dex and Sloane’s love for each other is put to the test, with more than their relationship on the line. If traversing the waters of murder and secret government agencies wasn’t enough, something inexplicable has been happening to Dex—and nothing will ever be the same.
