The Future of the ROUGH RIDERS

Slick from Guilty Pleasures:  Since I just finished reading Redneck Romeo, about the last McKay man standing, Dalton, I have to ask: who will be the focus of book 16, and is that truly the end? Because I have to tell you having Ky driving and into girls is going to open up a whole can of worms about when the kids' stories are going to be told.

No fun, I know, but no comment on Rough Riders book 16 yet...I'll clue you all in a bit further down the road. I get a bajillion questions about why I'm ending the Rough Riders series at book 16. And yes, I could probably write a second generation of McKays (Love Love Love my readers but you guys are driving me insane with the "When will you write Boone and Sierra's book?! Crazy rabid fans, I keep threatening that if you keep nagging me, it'll be...never--ha ha, yet I'd never do that because I want to know what happens, too!) but I've always considered this a western saga that DOES have an end. I've been fortunate that I've been allowed to write the books how I want, at the pace I want, with the subject matter I want--all with 100% publisher support. That is rare. Since the books have such a great following, there is that mindset to continue to "cash in" on the popularity of the series and characters. But I won't do that, because at what point do the new books just become a rehash of the older books? I'd much rather end the series on a high note, at the height of popularity, than wait until the series might be considered "tired", and I start to lose readers. Plus, I have lots of ideas, situations, characters and areas to explore in other fictional worlds. I hope readers come along for the ride.
