Independence Day, Book Five: The Big Surprise is currently being written and is expected to be released around mid 2017. It is the final book of this series.

Overview and Theme:

As this is the final book of the series, we will be working on tying up all the loose ends that have remained thus far. You can expect closure for all of the characters' dilemmas...even if it won't necessarily be happy closure.

The Big Surprise is...Me?

In the weeks leading up to book five, we are examining those left standing just a bit more closely in this extra feature.
