I know you guys have been asking me for months if FLASHBACK was going to be the last book in the series—and today I *finally* have an answer for you! Behold:
Yes, that’s right—there will be a Keeper #8 and a Keeper #9 (currently scheduled to come out in Fall 2019 and Fall 2020!!!)
*happy dances and tosses confetti*
I always knew Sophie’s story was a loooooooooooooooong, complicated story that would span many books in order for me to tell it properly. But I’ve never known exactly how many books that would be—partially because publishing is a business and, in the beginning, we had to make sure people were reading the series before my publisher could commit to too many books. And partially because it’s really hard to tell exactly how much I can fit into each book until I write it. I’m really good at thinking, I WILL DO ALL THE THINGS when I start a draft and then slowly realizing that since I have so many characters to juggle and so many threads to keep track of, I can only cover a small portion of what I thought I would.
And I’m telling you that because I know the inevitable next question is, “so will book #9 be the end???” And the answer is, “I don’t know.” I won’t know until I write it. So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see? It’ll be an adventure for all of us!
In the meantime, mark your calendars for more KEEPER ahead. And keep counting down the days with me until FLASHBACK. I would say how many days are left, but I’m trying really hard not to think about it because I’m still writing it. (*cue panic*) I guess I should probably get back to work, huh?

I know you were probably starting to think it would never launch (I know I was…). But it’s here! And now we can finally be free of my clunky old blog, which I’ve been holding together with digital duct tape for years. Just to clear up any confusion, this—shannonmessenger.com—is now the only website I’ll be…
