You can try to find out if the author has a web site. Or go to Fantasticfiction.com and looking up the author.

They try to sort books by publication date and series.

They're not always right, so I'd try the author first.

Kent District Library has a great resource called "What's Next".   Just fill in the blanks and it will produce a list of all the books in the series and in the order they were written.

There's a really great website called www.fictfact.com.  You can add all the series you are reading, mark off the ones you've read and it will let you know which one is next, and when another one in the series will be published.

Rhonda, you beat me to it.  I've been using FictFact.com since the first of the year, and I LOVE it!!

Another big fan of Fictfact.  I love that you can mark off which books you've read and which you own (I use the TBR for ones I own already but haven't read yet to help me see which ones I still need to acquire). And I love the Next books list.  If you keep up with  marking them off as you read them, you can bring up your Next books list and it'll automatically show you which ones you need to read next.  They're super quick about adding series too.  Several times I've sent in feedback to add a book, check the order they have, add an author and usually by the next morning they've already done what I asked or told me why they have a series in a certain order.

Also I find that fantasticfiction isn't always correct.  They frequently have something listed different that what's on the author's website or they don't show books as being part of a series at all.  And as far as I can tell there's no way to contact them to ask.

I wish Fictfact has message board although at the same time, I'm glad they don't.  I already spend way too much time on goodreads and here.

Mary, thanks for the hint using TBR for books you own. I've been printing lists off, writing what I own on the list and then losing the list. I just wish there was a way to designate if I own the book or the ebook. But this would save me lots of work. Thanks.

I use the TBR feature here as well and I just use the note feature to mark the ones I have on Ebook.  I don't have a lot of ebooks though.
