Okay: I have to rant…
Colleen Houck, although I ADORE her, has really let me (and probably many others) down. On her blog she admitted that Tiger’s Dream has been put on the ‘back-burner’ while she continues with her new series. I don’t agree with this irresponsibility. She made a commitment to her fans by promising a book in 2014, and yet here we are in 2016 and it still hasn’t been released. And not only that, but we haven’t heard much about the book or it’s progress in months. In my opinion this entire ordeal is very unprofessional. Yes, I TOTALLY understand when authors are swamped with other aspects of their life and they just don’t have the time to write, but Mrs. Houck obviously has the time because she has written two entire books since the time when she mentioned Tiger’s Dream. It also would have been understandable if Mrs. Houck had just been considering the idea of another book while not actually writing it, but she put a sneak peak in the back of a prequel she published (Tiger’s Promise). This led many people to believe that she had already started some of the newest novel and that it would be done soon.
So I don’t know. Maybe I am overreacting. Please don’t think that I am shaming Mrs. Houck in any way, I think she is AMAZING, I am just a little disappointed with how things have played out with her book releases lately.
