On January 2nd I put out a call for questions (in conjunction with a contest) and many of you asked some great ones! Every Wednesday (until I run out of questions), I’ll be answering them here! There may be ones that are related, so I’ll answer multiple questions at once. You can always add a new questions to the queue by posting them as a comment here.
So a whole BUNCH of people asked: Will there be more Dave and Sarah books?
I love this question because I love how so many of you are so invested in Dave and Sarah and their stories. It makes me so happy because I put a lot of myself into the writing and promotio of any book I write, so I love when I see those stories and characters get fans and love of their own. I especially have a soft spot for Dave and Sarah because… well, they’re Dave and Sarah! They are badasses.
But all good things must come to an end. Dave and Sarah have saved their marriage, started a business, fought mad scientists and even gotten zombie powers, oh and then there’s that baby thing. They’ve been through a lot. I really can’t see them having more to happen that could carry another book. They’ve done what they need to do, they’ve saved the world and now it’s time for them to smile, wave and ride off into the sunset. I think they deserve it.
Plus, I have so many other stories in my head. I am so in love with my monster books that start April 29 with Club Monstrosity. I love Natalie and Alec and all the other monsters in my neighborhoood. I feel like it’s a fresh start for me and new people for you to hopefully fall in love with. And that’s why Dave and Sarah are done. They’ve finished what they had to do and I’m ready to give them a warm hug and try a new set of stories.
I’ve always been frustrated when sitcoms ended one season too late (um, How I Met Your Mother, I’m looking at you). And I don’t want Dave and Sarah to wear out their welcome.
So bring on the monsters!
