So, there will eventually be 50 books, with each one focusing on a different state?

Vivian Zabel said...

That's correct. IF the CPSIA doesn't shut us down, Elysabeth will have 50 books out in the next few years. She has a life-time contract. *laugh*

lol - Lifetime for you or me? Actually the contract is for the next roughly 12+ years since Vivian is wanting to publish one book every 3 months. And again, like she said as long as the CPSIA gets repealed and reworked and doesn't shut us down, we will be good to go.

I want to encourage the readers to guess the state along with my characters. So the series is fun and educational all wrapped into one. E :)
