You know how I said over in the FAQs that we were going to be finishing up the series with Pink XI with Jane’s book?
This is exactly why it also says in the FAQs that when I say these things, you should take it with a grain of salt. Or great gobs of salt.
The original plan was to have Jane’s book follow immediately after Miss Gwen’s book, The Passion of the Purple Plumeria (coming to a bookstore near you August 6th!). But….
(You knew there was going to be a “but” there, right?)
The timing just didn’t work. Miss Gwen’s book is set in 1805. Jane’s book, for very specific historical reasons, needs to take place in November of 1807. That’s quite a gap. Not to mention that Eloise and Colin’s story still has some twists left in it.
The bad news? You’re going to have to wait an extra year for Jane’s book.
The good news? There will be twelve Pink books instead of eleven. (For symmetry’s sake, there’s something to be said for the rounder number.)
As for the new heroine of Pink XI….
Wouldn’t you know it, just as I was contemplating these pacing problems, Sally Fitzhugh flounced onto my computer screen and announced that it was really quite time that she had a book of her own. Because if Turnip has one, clearly, she deserves one, too.
When we bump into Sally in the autumn of 1806, she’s been on the marriage market for a couple of years already, and is more than ready for a little mischief.
More about Pink XI soon!
