Yesterday, #SneakReader Keisha B sent a long list of books she has read of mine.
Seeing the list, I was shocked someone was walking around with that many books of mine on their eReader.
She then asked the question of all questions:
When can she get her eyes on Stealing Innocence III: Lethal Heart.
Even though I answered her in private, I decided to repost my updated answer here because I know you guys are asking me the same thing.
So here goes… The () means I added to the response from her, except when a book is mentioned.
Originally Stealing Innocence was planned for a January 2013 release.
My laptop got stolen in early 2011 and the finished book with it. (Actually it got stolen twice. Once in 2010 and early 2011).
So I started re-writing it and then I came to a halt because I realized in order for Lethal to have peace I’m going to have to settle his family issues.
Meaning, I need two books before him.
One to explain what happened and why the family is divided (Emperor’s Addiction & Emperor’s Heart)
And the second was King Heart. (King’s Paradise)
Well, because Lethal would have no peace. He needs peace.
Love cannot live in negativity.
Plus, there is a lot more crap King’s done to Lethal and I need to get that out too.
(Fast forward past the horribleness of 2013 when I got absolutely no writing done except after November)
Currently, I’m working on the second Emperor’s book now and King’s Paradise is almost finished outlining.
So the original question was, when is Stealing Innocence III: Lethal Heart coming out…
I’m hoping by the end of this year… (again and I know I’ve said that before, but it’s an intricate story and I want to do justice to Lethal Heart or he’ll come after me and WE don’t want that.)
Maybe I’ll sell a 100,000 books and can quit my job so I can sit at home and write, so it can come early.
But right now, I can say, the end of this year.

I have just read the Heart series for the third time and Stealing Innocence I n II for the third time as well. I’m now going through all your books again and I fall in love with them all over again. I don’t know what happened with you and your family but I’ll pray for peace n blessing to cover you all. I’m a soldier and all your books take me away from work for a while so thank you for that. I can’t wait to read your other books.
