Ask @lilithsaintcrow:

Would you ever consider writing a book that would tell us what happened to Graves and Dru after he returns? If there is a book already and I've missed it, do let me know. Also which of your books are the closest to Strange Angels? I would love to read more of your works!

Andrea

Good Afternoon, I just got done reading the strange angels serious and I was wondering if you have started or may be thinking on writing another book for that series?

nicole peterson

hi lilith! i just finished reading "reckoning" and i absolutely loved the entire series. however, i really want to ask if you're going to publish Graves' return and if Dru can ever live somewhat of a normal life, and what is going to happen with the maharaj ??

Hi Lilith, I read the dante valentine series in french but I don't find the last book to hell and back.... same reason I didn't begin the banon and clare series....is it an edition decision?I luike your books very much but please I want to know the end of the story...Thank you Nancy ,Québec Can

The best people to ask would be the publisher that did the translations. I have no way of knowing if my books will be translated, and if they are, I don't have any control over whether that publisher will translate the whole series or decide to stop because they don't sell. The translating publisher's information will be inside the front of each book, asking them is the best way to express more interest and maybe get them to do a few more!

I see that the Bannon and Clare series was brought to an end because it didn't sell well, but I am wondering if there is a way to still purchase the audio books of them? I really enjoyed the stories and spend most of my time working with my hands which makes the audio book easier.

Marissa Undercofler
Unfortunately I have no control over the audiobooks. Writing to the publisher--Orbit--is the best way to get this question answered.

Will there be more books in the Gallows and Ragged series? I have really enjoyed the first three.

Forest Betz
I don't know if I'll ever be able to write what happens afterward. Poor Robin has lost enough, I think.

Will you ever revisit the Watcher's series or a sequel to the Demon's Librarian? I love them both & a reread of one leads to the other. Also is Dante's Abra the same as Elise's?

Beth Rasmussen
Yes, Abra is the same. The Valentine series is about 600 years after the Watchers; in fact, the Watchers were indirectly responsible for the Great Awakening.

In the Dante Valentine series is The Republic of Gilead inspired by or in reference to "The Handmaid's Tale," in any way?

Alyssa
Yes. I'm glad someone got the reference. Atwood's work is amazing and formative, and I was glad to be able to put a tiny Easter-egg homage in my own.

I just started Wordless and I can't stop reading. Tell Ms Sterling, she has a new fan. Truly addictive. Also Daily Grind just cracks me up. You have the weirdest and coolest family (including the squirrels).

Jeff Maddox
Thank you kindly, on Ms Sterling's behalf. She's very pleased you're enjoying it.

I just finished your book Nameless and i was wondering if you plan on writing a book in Nico's point of view or his own book?

Asaneth Ruiz
I'm not. Nico is only ancillary to Cami's story, really.

I just finished reading Working for the Devil and thoroughly enjoyed it. At the back of the book, there are sneak peaks from three others, one of which is Valentine's Fall. I can't find this book anywhere. Was it renamed Dead Man Rising? If that's not the case, where can I find a copy? Thanks.

Rhonda Ray
Valentine's Fall was the original title for Dead Man Rising, waaaaaaay back when Working for the Devil was first published. You must have read one of the very first editions! It's nice to know they're still out there.

I am re-reading Jealousy at the moment and found myself intrigued about Scarabus. Would you ever consider writing a short about him?

Brieanna Curnoe
I'm not sure. The djamphir only know most of what happened, not all. The true story is even more tragic, and I've never felt the urge to write it.

Why does Japh call Abra Starak when he first enters her shop with Dante in the first book? What does it mean? Is it her name, or is it what she is, since Dante says that she could not figure out what species she was? Mj Munro

Maria Munro
Just because Dante doesn't know what Abra is doesn't mean Japh doesn't know.

Hi, Lili! As an aspiring writer, I'm looking for an agent for the same genre you're in, namely dark fantasy/detective. Do you have any recommendations? I figure the worst you'll tell me is to pound sand %)

Robert Daniel Hammond
Google. Check out the listings at the SFWA, at Writer's Digest, look for literary agents online and read their blogs. Check the acknowledgements in the genres you think you're writing in, to see if agents are mentioned. Read agents' submission guidelines and follow them precisely.

This is just really silly, but if Deadpool got in a fight with Nikolai, who would win and why?

RAM
I think Nikolai would hire Deadpool because he's effective. I further think Selene would be amused, and Nikolai would put up with Deadpool's mouth because of that. (He likes it when she smiles.)
I really think both Nik and Wade are too smart to tangle with each other.

Firstly, im a big fan of Strange Angels, i have read it over & over 6+ times in the past 4 years. i was disappointed in the end, & recently found there isnt a 6th book but your explaination is good. Anyways, are any of your other books, or books from someone else, similar to S.A. Which are closest?

Hello , I'm Marta , and for a few minutes I'll have 18th birthday. I'm your huge fan . Therefore, please tell me the full name of Dru Anderson. That would be the best birthday present ever. Kisses from your loyal fan - Marta ♡

Marta
Hello, Marta, and happy eighteenth birthday.
I do know Dru's full name, and several fans have made guesses. (Some of them have even guessed correctly.) But I have not written Graves's eventual return yet, and when I do I am not sure I will publish it, either.
It is far more interesting to ask you what you think her full name is, and why. Any answer you come up with will be better than the one I can give.

Why is Dante taller as a hedaira?

Simone
I'm not sure. It could be that the process to make a hedaira swifter, tougher, and stronger makes them taller as well.

Hi. I just saw your advice about finishing the book no matter what. Can I respectfully ask that you finish steelflower? I really really really would like to see the end. Usually I can't write my own ending to somthing that got canceled but Kaia & Driks world is to expansive for me. Please?

Jessica fix
I do not find this request "respectful" at all. If you read my blog regularly you know that the event which halted the Steelflower series was severe, ongoing e-piracy. The thing that killed Book 2 was someone torrenting the bits I had put on Patreon for my subscribers. Additionally, the small press kind enough to contract me to finish Steelflower 2 is going under, and cannot bring the book to print.
When I can open the Steelflower 2 file in my word processor without feeling physically ill from the emotional violation of that thievery to the point I retch, I may very well finish that zero draft. This does not mean I will make the choice to pursue publication of it.
Thank you for your love of Kaia and her crew. It was the actions of thieves that put an end to my ability to continue sharing her story. However upsetting you find this, you may rest assured I find it exponentially more so.

Have you ended the Bannon and Clare series? If so, what a shame!

Leigh Sawyer
*I* did not end the series. It didn't sell well enough for the publisher to continue bringing it out. Originally, there were seven books planned.

what did Lucas do to be abandoned by Death?

Simone
That's simply the gossip Dante heard. It doesn't mean that's necessarily what happened.
If Lucas ever wants to star in a story, we may hear more about what made him what he is. So far, though, he is content not to speak.

sorry, let me rephrase. As a writer, how do you construct the philosophical grounding (morals) of nonhuman species?

Simone
With imagination and logic. I ask the character "what do you want?" and "how are you prepared to get it?" and go from there. One gets rather startling answers when one asks nonhuman intelligences such things, as I think both biology and botany show.
