Does anyone know when the next book in the Alpha & Omega series is going to come out?

Thanks!:)

No.  She changed her schedule.  She is rewriting Masques and it's never published sequel, Wolvesbane.  So next is the Mercy book Silverbourne, then Masques, then next Alpha book.

Really Emily? :( That will be a long wait I'm sure, and I just can't get into the Mercy books like I did with Alpha & Omega.

Mandy -- which did you read first?  I wonder because I love Mercy more than the Alpha and Omega -- I like them, but not as much.  I wonder if it is becasue I read them first.

Same here Rachel, I read Mercy first and I enjoyed Alpha & Omega only because I liked the Mercy series so much and it was related.

Thats probably what it is then, because I read Alpha & Omega first, it just drew me in. For some reason I just can't connect with the characters in the Mercy series. I read the first book and got half-way through the second. I put it back on my shelf to give it another shot later.....and it sounds like I'll have a lot of time to read it before another Alpha & Omega ;) lol  I'm still pretty new to paranormal and trying to figure out exactly what I like to read.

Alpha & Omega fits better into the catagory of paranormal romance.  Mercy fits more into UF.  I can see some folks tastes running more to one than the other.

And while Patty's updated schedule looks far away, do remember that Silverbourne is finished being written and comes out in March.

I love Mercy...not such a fan of the Alpha Omega series. I can't remember her name...but I'd like to choke her if pssible (Anna?).  God I find her annoying.  IF the books weren't tied into the Mercy series I probably wouldn't even bother.  In fact I have the most recent A&O book and I can't bring myself to start it...hoping I like it better than the 1st!

Marie, if you hated the first book so much, I honestly wouldn't bother with the second, the characters personalities don't change.

Marie -- did you read the short story before A & O?   I think that explains why Anna is so timid.  In this last one she is growing stronger--braver.  I hope that as the series progresses that the character grows and becomes stronger.  Kinda like Kitty -- in the first ones she is more timid, but grows as it progresses.

Yeah...I read the short story still don't like her....neurotic must read in order person here!   I'm currently reading the most recent O&A book...not as bad but Anna certainly isn't Mercy!

It looks like Cry Wolf came out in hardback under ISBN: 9780441018482  I found it on overstock.com, but amazon doesnt have it listed.

Rachel I havent read the short story yet, but while looking for the other book a while back, I found the short story was released in hardback too under ISBN: 9781596062870

Several of the books that were originally published in PB have been released as HBs.  I think SciFi Book Club is doing it.

okay, this is a Mercy question, but anybody else like to see a little something happen between Stefan and Mercy?  I mean, I like her with Adam, but sometimes....
