So it looks like Rachel Caine will be continuing her Weather Warden series. She will be self publishing book 10, and has a Kickstarter page. It's supposed to be released July 1st, 2016. At least that's what Goodreads is saying, as there is no official Amazon link. Nor official news on the author's site.
Wow the last book came out in 2010! I wonder if Caine had to wait to continue the series so that she could get the rights back?
So let's take a peek at that cover!
Red Hot Rain by Rachel Caine

|Series: Weather Warden, book 10 |
Add it: Goodreads | Amazon
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Matches the series well enough. It probably won't look as seamless as all of the others sitting on my shelf.
Yet I do like that it signals something new, that this is the self pub continuations of the series.
I love her stance. It makes me think of killer tango!
RED HOT RAIN starts a few years after the end of TOTAL ECLIPSE, in a world that seems to finally be settled. Mother Earth isn't mad at us. The Djinn have kissed and made up (sometimes literally) with the Wardens, and the two sides work together to solve whatever problems do arise. All good, right?
When Joanne Baldwin first hears about a freak monster storm that destroys the rebuilding community of Lubbock, Texas, she takes a personal trip to find out what's going on. Problem is, seems like it's exactly as it appears: a freak natural occurrence.
But when the same kind of storm tears a killer swath across the country to follow her home, and all her Warden powers can't put a dent in it, it's clear there's more to this storm front than physics. Soon, Joanne's embroiled in a deadly struggle against a mysterious, powerful opponent, and her husband David--most powerful of the Djinn--seems strangely unhelpful against whatever's coming for her. Even Lewis, her long-time friend and ally, now an otherworldly consort to Mother Earth herself, doesn't seem inclined (or able) to help. Someone's got the mother of all grudges against Joanne Baldwin, and they're coming at her hard.
And not just her. Joanne's not just fighting for her own life. It's coming for her son, too.
It'll be up to Joanne to save herself and her son from the storm that's coming for them ... a storm that wants to erase Joanne Baldwin and everyone she loves from the face of the earth.
I confess I haven't read past book 2. But it sounds cool that after the official ending this takes place some years after the first series.
I wonder if this means she might bring back the Outcast Seasons books? If this one goes over well. It also makes me curious if a book is successful if she'll end up making more money then going through a traditional publishing house?
Well are you guys excited?
