Since THE SWAN & THE JACKAL released on March 5th, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about Fredrik—many of them asking the same things—that I decided I’d answer them here, hopefully to clear some things up as well as ease some minds. And I will do this the safest way I can without revealing any spoilers.
Q: Will Fredrik get another present day book?
A: YES! Remember, this is an ongoing series! There are no set number of books and I have no end in sight. There will be more books on all of the characters and even some that you’ve yet to meet. Think of this series as an ongoing television show—more shit will happen, good and bad, people will die, relationships will be made and broken, etc.! Just because someone new gets a book, doesn’t mean you’ve seen the last of the characters who you read about previously.
Q: Why write Fredrik’s prequel/back-story since we already know what happens to Seraphina and Cassia in THE SWAN & THE JACKAL?
A: Because his back-story is important and will reveal more about his past that you don’t know, including people that will appear in his life in present day. You don’t have to read it, but I wouldn’t write it if it wasn’t necessary to the building of his character and his present day life. And keep in mind, all characters in this series will get one prequel/back-story book. Because all of these characters have big secrets—Izabel’s secret, for instance, will…well, I can’t tell you that. ;-) NOTE: This information changed and a full back-story was was not written! Instead, I chose to reveal the character’s back-stories in bits and pieces throughout present day books.
Q: Will Fredrik get…(how do I put this without spoiling it?)…Will he get what he deserves? (Those of you who have read THE SWAN & THE JACKAL probably understand the question.)
A: Well, I can’t tell you yes or no because that would spoil it, wouldn’t it?! But I’m only in the business of breaking hearts on occasion (because not every book in an ongoing series like this can end with an HEA, or it would be entirely UNREALISTIC and BORING and EXPECTED, and did I mention unrealistic?) Remember, this is a crime, suspense and thriller series about KILLERS, people who live a life of crime and darkness. If every book ended on a loving, romantic note in a series like this…well, need I really explain further?
Q: Will we see more of Victor and Izabel?
A: YES! See the answer to question #1 :-)
So, I hope this helps! I’m so glad you’re all enjoying the series so far! :-) I’m definitely enjoying writing it and I look forward to delving deeper into this world and shocking you some more. :-P
