Book 5 in the Crime Lord Series will be my next work in progress! I know. FINALLY, right? I mentioned in a previous blog that I moved 3 times in 2018, which is why I wasn’t able to sit down and write part 2 of Carmen’s story. The Crime Lord Series is very intricate and detailed and I didn’t want to rush through Carmen’s story so I waited until I had the time to give book 5 the attention it deserves. This will be my next release!

The deeper we delve into the series, the more time each book requires. Navigating around future plot points is like tiptoeing around landmines. I get a lot of requests for certain character’s books. Every story foreshadows the next and sheds light on each character before they take center stage. I have bread crumbs in books 3 and 4 for books 8 and 10. It’s deliberate and the order is not random. Each character will have their time in the limelight. Books 5 and 6 have intersecting timelines so I’ll be writing these back to back before I finish book 2 in the Singed Series.

The Crime Lord Series will be a long running series. If all the “main” characters get a book (Lucifer, Raul, Roque, Blade, etc) the series will have over 10 books, which means the Crime Lord Series will be ongoing for years. In between Crime Lord books I’ll dabble in other things, but I’ll always come back and complete what I’ve begun.

In an effort to make some major headway on my workload, I’m going to be offline. The best way to reach me is through my email: [email protected] My PA Emily and Kelly will be running my social media in my absence and will be handling inquiries on those platforms. I will check in periodically, but inconsistently. I don’t know how long the book will take. Each book is different, but I will announce a release date as soon as I have one!

Thank you so much for your patience and support! I’m really blessed to be able to do this for a living and have an audience eager to see what’s next. I hope book 5 is worth the wait! Wish me luck!

    I am the type of reader that has a hard time not finishing a book that I start. No matter how slow or bad it is. That is one thing I never have to worry about with your books! I know when I purchase one of yours, it will be a winner. Every single time!

    I love your work Mia! I loved Gavin and Lyla, I am excited for Carmen ( even though we lost Vinny ) and hope she ends up with Angel. I am even excited for Jasmine and Roth. Please know that I am anxiously awaiting the next book and hope the Crime lord series continues through the next generation of Nora.

    Mia, Thank You for a great read and an awesome new series to get hooked on. I am late to the party and just finished book 1 in 2 days and now I am eager for other books that are currently out. Thanks again for your wonderful writing!

    • Mia Knight on July 21, 2019 at 4:11 am

      Thank you Cyndi! I hope you enjoy all the stories!

    I was looking for a new author and came upon your book covers. Looked interesting, my style of reading, thought hey, why not give this one a go.
    Well, from page 1 book 1 – Captive, I’ve been reading your books like a sponge searching liquid. They have been captivating, emotional, quirky – I can go on. Most important, they have a storyline as well. Not reading smut only but a storyline with juicy hot sex scenes.
    So looking forward to the next instalment from ‘Crime Lord’ series. What is installed for Carmen… Marcus, Angel, oh definitely Gavin and Lyla.
    Hmm, now to twiddle my thumbs upon next release. Thank you so far. 🤗🤗

    Discovered this series a week ago and have already read them all. I can’t wait to read the next one. I have been going to work with 2 hours of sleep because I could not put these down. You now have a new fan Mia. Keep it up! I’m here impatiently waiting.

  16. Stephanie on March 19, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    Okay I have read all the series and anxiously awaiting part 2 of Carmen’s story. ❤️. When will it be out? Gavin and Lyla’s story had me reading all night. Then when I read about Carmen, I was looking for part two everywhere.

    • Mia Knight on March 20, 2020 at 3:18 pm
