Announcements The Becoming Series

Announcement Regarding The Becoming Series

So I have a little bit of an announcement to make, now that the ink is dry on the paperwork.

There will not be six books in The Becoming Series.

There are a variety of reasons that this is going to happen, but the primary reason is that, contrary to the outlines I drafted almost two years ago, there just isn’t enough material left to get an entire sixth book written for this series. I’d rather give you guys five great quality books than six so-so books. This isn’t, of course, the only reason I’ve made this decision, but this is the primary reason for it.

So what I’m doing is this: Book five is being retitled to The Becoming: Redemption. Instead of publishing a sixth novel, Permuted is going to reissue The Becoming: Origins, BUT Origins will have an added bonus of including two never-before-released novellas, one called “My Brother’s Keeper,” which is a story about the twins Sadie and Jude O’Dell, and a currently untitled story that tracks Remy Angellette when the outbreak reached New Orleans. Both of these stories take place before or concurrently with book one in the series. The Becoming: Origins will still include the novellas “Brothers in Arms” and “Origins.”

Hopefully all you guys are understanding about the need for these changes to take place, but I promise you that, in exchange, Redemption is going to be EPIC.


  1. I’m excited about the release of the final book in The Becoming series! My one request is to get it released on audio as soon as possible. I get all of my books as audiobooks, and it is hard to wait for the next in a series when I know it has been released in print. Also, I hope you are planning to have Origins released on audio as well. I have enjoyed the series and am waiting to snatch up the remaining books when they are released.
    Thanks for your time,
