Wow, I can see why you'd need to have a time line for your books.

I love a timeline! And a glossary... and a map... maybe even a character guide... HINT, HINT!

oh, yes, in my multitudinous spare time...Yes this timeline was for me. Each of the REGULAR books does have a cast of characters, there is a map there, too, and several on my website...

Enjoyed Heart & Swords very much. Liked the look at various characters ancestors and what happened to characters from other stories. I had just read through the entire series over the past couple of weeks, finished Heart Search on Friday. Since it was all fresh, I was able to follow the time line. Will you post it to your website?

I enjoyed all the stories, Genista's a little more than I was expecting to but as you intended she grew & changed. I'm glad she found her passion & a man to appreciate her for her. Loved Walker's reaction to the heart bond, "What the hell is that?". Robin a question, what name or did the Boundry's even take another name? The Ashes were Ashes from the get go. With Fern's violet eyes I was guessing that somewhere in the Hawthorn's famiy tree, maybe?

Cindy, I actually recalled from Heart Thief that the surname of the last Captain was "Elder." So Kelse and Fern became Elders...though, of course, over 400 years things intermingle.

And the pilot of Nuada's Sword became the founding mother of the Hollys...

I couldn't find any copies at the Barnes and Noble when I stopped by tonight -- they called another store and all their copies in inventory weren't on the shelves. Here's hoping that it means they were all sold out!

Sorry they aren't in the stores, that makes me REALLY nervous, and, yes, sold out would be good, but sold out of 3 is not so good...

I just finished Heart/Swords and really enjoyed visiting this world again. These books on auto-buys for me! I thought I saw someplace that Vinni's book will be coming soon? What is coming up next?

Good to see you Blonde! And thanks for the lovely words. :) Next up is Heart Secret featuring Garrett Primross (the private eye in Heart Search) as the hero and Artemisia Mugwort (the Healer, and older sister to Tiana Mugwort, Camellia's friend) as the heroine...and man that sounds complicated, but it really isn't so much.

I think I've put other stuff on this blog about Garrett and Heart Secret, and I keep folks up to date. :)
