Next Town Over is on a semi-hiatus due to my first kid, my eroded buffer, and the first NTO collection (thanks for your unbelievable support!) I didn’t want to leave the place sit idle during this indeterminate span, though, so I asked you what you wanted to see in the interim, and you overwhelmingly voted for a visually simpler short story I could keep up with updating while I try to square it all away.

Black and Hunter will return in Next Town Over Book 5: Wayward, on April 13th ... or maybe 20th. I haven't decided yet.
