Jaye Wells Has a New Series – The PROSPERO’S WAR SAGA!

From Jaye's website:

The final Sabina Kane book, BLUE-BLOODED VAMP came out a couple of months ago, and since then there has been a lot of speculation by readers about what’s next for me. I’ve actually known what’s next for several months, but haven’t been able to talk much about it … until now.

I am proud and thrilled to announce that I have signed a new three-book deal with Orbit for a brand new series. The PROSPERO’S WAR series focuses on an ambitious cop, named Kate Prospero, whose goal is to rid the streets of the covens that sell addictive dirty magic. I pitched it to Orbit as “The Wire with wizards.” The first book will be titled DIRTY MAGIC.

Here’s the Publisher’s Marketplace announcement:
Author of the Sabina Kane series, Jaye Wells’s DIRTY MAGIC, pitched as The Wire with wizards, again to Devi Pillai at Orbit, in a three-book deal, by Rebecca Strauss at McIntosh & Otis (world English).

But that’s not all …

As part of the new deal, I have also agreed to write at least two Sabina Kane e-novellas. That’s right, my friends, I’m diving back into those familiar waters soon with two new stories about Team Awesome. At this point, I can’t tell you much about the plots of these novellas since they aren’t written, but I look forward to the chance to tell some other stories in that world. I am also planning on writing an e-novella set in the new Prospero universe at some point.

I'm looking forward to this new series.  Haven't heard much on it yet, but as we all know Jaye is rather talented and it has to be a great one. :smileyhappy: And glad to hear a few novellas with Sabina again!

 

Wonder if those apples Adam took will show up.... hmmmm,....
