Hi everyone, this is Andy, Anna’s minion writing. It’s been over a year since the last update, so we just wanted to say hi and a huge thank you for hanging in there and sending through your questions and messages of support (we all want to know what happened to Fern!). Anna really appreciates it!

Anna ran into a number of road blocks with writing book 6, but rest assured, it will come, eventually. These books aren’t just books to her, they’re a huge part of her life. To be true to all the characters we know and love, she’s been taking the time she needs to let the series sit, ideas percolate, and the future to take shape. No-one’s more disappointed than she is to not have news in 2019 for the next book, but when there is news to share, we’ll post it here and on Facebook first.

Thanks so much again for reading her books, and from the office of Anna McIlwraith, we wish you all a safe and happy new year, and she’ll be back in 2020!
