Obsidian Queen Book Four

(Writing as Shannon Lynn Cook)

  • Expected Release: August 2019
  • Series: Obsidian Queen
  • Genre: New Adult Urban Fantasy

Book One in the Greybrow Brothers Series

  • Expected Release: Autumn 2019

Status: Still in the planning stages, and I am SO excited.


2020 and Beyond Projects

(These may change)

Untitled Glitter & Sparkle Companion Novel

  • Tentative Release: Unsure
  • Series: Glitter & Sparkle
  • Genre: Young Adult Contemporary

Status: I’m a quarter of the way finished with the first draft, but I’m not sure about this one yet. It’s Zeke and Zoe’s story, and due to the nature of their relationship, it might be a little too mature for the series. We’ll see.

Just the Essentials Two: Agnes’s Story

  • Expected Release: 2020
  • Series: Sequel to Just the Essentials
  • Genre: Sweet New Adult Romance

Status: Not-so-long ago, I wrote and sent the first chapter to my contemporary newsletter subscribers. They liked it, and now I’m working on an outline.

Fairy Tale Kingdoms Book 4

A retelling of Goldilocks or Cinderella or Jorinda and Joringel.

Status: I haven’t settled on a fairy tale yet, but I’ve been brainstorming fun plots for all of the tales listed above. In the case of Jorinda and Joringel, I know exactly what my story is, but I’m not sure it’s time to write it.

Untitled Romantic Epic Fantasy

(Writing as Shannon Lynn Cook)

Status: This is a series I’m working on with my husband, and we’ve been plotting, plotting, plotting for over a year now. We’ve written a few chapters, but we don’t want to begin another project under my Cook pen name until Obsidian Queen is complete.


A quick note about Hair of Gold: it’s in the Fairy Tale Kingdoms lineup, but it must be later in the series. I promise Rapunzel’s going to get her story.
