As we start to wind down all the Court of Midnight and Deception I thought this was a great time to discuss the future for my urban fantasy world! First of all, I have an exciting announcement–the world is going to have it’s own name, which will make future series in this universe a lot easier to identify. I’m calling it the “Magiford Supernatural City” world/universe. 😀
I already have quite a few plans for this world, but I thought I’d go over what you can expect. As of now (2021) the plan is to release one series per year. Currently I plan to write only trilogies in this world, and most likely they’ll all follow the same launch pattern of approximately two months to get all three books.
There will be an arc that tangentially follows the Paragon and his mysterious quest–which we now know from what he’s told Leila that he’s searching for someone. The Paragon’s search will have four series total, with two of them being Hall of Blood and Mercy and Court of Midnight and Deception. (This means you’ll get two more trilogies to tie up the Paragon’s search.) I’m guessing some of you will assume that means the Paragon will be the hero of one of the two remaining trilogies, but he’s not. The Paragon has a very…strong personality, and it’s very unique which is honestly a bit difficult to market. At this time I have no plans for him to have a trilogy of his own, but I might give him a standalone novella or novel depending how everything finishes. (I still have other series to work on, after all.)
The next Magiford Supernatural City trilogy–which I’ll release in 2022–will not involve the Paragon’s quest. It’s going to be a spin off of sorts–I’ll get into the specifics of it in the next post!
I do already have plans for a few additional spin off series–besides the trilogy that will launch in 2022. All of them will tackle different kinds of supernaturals and issues, but you’ll always get to see a few old characters in each trilogy. You’ll find that I’ve planted seeds to these spin offs in the four trilogies that make up the Paragon’s quest!
Even better, we’ve seen and heard of the heroine that will fill out the third trilogy of the Paragon’s search! We saw her in a Hall of Blood and Mercy short, and she was discussed in one of the Court of Midnight and Deception books and a short as well. 😉 Can you find her? (I am planning for this heroine’s series to launch in 2023.)
That’s all for today, Champions! In the next post–which is the last Magiford themed post–we’ll talk about the next Magiford Supernatural City trilogy!
