I've been getting quite a few emails and private messages asking me about the next books in The Dragon Portal series. I decided to create a little FAQ to help shed some light on this series:
Question: How many books are going to be in the series?
Answer: Right now, I'm planning on six. There's a small chance it may extend to a seventh book, but I won't know for sure until Sabine tells me.

Question: I heard By Blood and Magic doesn't take place in the dwarven city. Is that true?
Answer: Yes. They're heading in that direction, but "unforeseen circumstances" have delayed them. The second book takes place on Malek's ship and in the area surrounding the city of Karga.

Question: I love the demons! Does Dax reappear later in the series?
Answer: Yep. You'll see a lot more of him and Bane later on.

Question: When can we expect the next book?
Answer: By Blood and Magic (The Dragon Portal, Book 2) is being finalized right now. It's scheduled to be released on March 26th, 2020. The third book will be available in September, but I'm hoping I might be able to move up that release date even sooner.
Ideally, I'd like to have the first four available to you by the end of the year. Each book takes place in a separate location with different cultures and characters, so it's taking me longer than usual to write each one.

Question: Will Blossom get her own story?
Answer: Eek! Why'd you go putting that into her head? Now she wants her own story! I might try to give her a bonus chapter at a later date, but I don't have any specific plans. If I can swing it, I'll make it available as a free download for my newsletter subscribers.

Question: I want to read By Blood and Magic right now! Can you tell me anything about it?
Answer: Argh. You're killing me. I'm trying really hard not to give any spoilers, but I will say it starts out with a bang! I'll have the first chapter available as a free download VERY soon (no later than the end of February). I'm finishing up with the edits right now.
In the meantime, I'll say the Merfolk have decided to make their presence known and they're NOT happy about Sabine's choice of companions. ;)
