    Hey Elle, will there be a sequel to Holding Smoke? I absolutely loved the book and reading it in a guy’s point of view. In a way, John reminded me of Reese and I liked that. Speaking of Reese, I’m dying for a trilogy to Nearly Gone!! More Reese and Nearly please! Much love!

      Thanks, Racquel! I’m so glad you loved the books. For now, as much as I would love to write one more Nearly book, there are no plans for any additional books in the series. You can read more about why here: . As for HOLDING SMOKE, this book is, and always has been, a standalone story, so I don’t foresee myself writing any more. John’s story is complete, as far as I ever imagined it, and I’m happy where we left him and Pink.

      All this said, I do hope you’ll stay tuned for my next YA thriller, THE SUFFERING TREE, coming out June 13, 2017. If you loved Reece and Nearly and John and Pink, I think you’ll fall head over heels for Nathaniel Bishop and Tori Burns. And while I try never to pick favorites, I will say Nat is completely swoon-worthy. I know it’s a long time to wait, but if you drop by YA Books Central blog and enter the drawing in the cover reveal post, you might win a pre-ordered copy. Just sayin’… .

      Thanks for reading, Racquel!

    I absolutely loved your book holding smoke and I definitely think this book should be turned into a movie because as I was reading this book all I could do was imagine a movie. I did feel a little empty inside when I read that you weren’t making a sequel. I was upset because it left me waiting for something else to happen at the end.

      Thanks, Molly. I love Smoke, too. HOLDING SMOKE and THE SUFFERING TREE have always been standalone novels. I’ve never imagined a sequel to either of them. In my mind, they’re complete as they are, but I’m glad to know you connected with Smoke and that he’s lingered in your mind. I hope you’ll consider reading some of my other books, too. Thanks for reaching out. All best, Elle.
