It’s official. Pink XII– aka the book after The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla— will be the last book in the Pink Carnation series.
Twelve is a pretty good number for a series, don’t you think?
Here’s what I can tell you about Pink XII so far. It’s Jane’s book. It’s set in Portugal in autumn 1807. And it will presumably make its appearance at some point in 2015.
The first book in the series, The Secret History of the Pink Carnation, was published in 2005. It’s hard to believe that the Pink series has been going strong for nearly a decade– but the decade mark seemed like a good time to wrap it up, before it begins to go stale.
Wrapping up the series doesn’t mean that we’ll be leaving the world of Pink forever. I’m not ruling out the possibility of novellas or related novels. After all, there are still far too many characters who need their stories told….
More about Pink XII soon!
