This is my second trilogy but it's a little older and darker than the Kaspar Snit books. And while those have separate stories, this one follows one arc from the first book to the last.

I just finished up reading The Boy in the Box. I had no idea it was a trilogy and was bummed out at the end since it seemed to come to an abrupt halt. I can't wait for book two. Do you have a time schedule for the release of the next two novels?
