I messaged the author of Surfacing in regards to whether he will follow it up with a sequel. This is his response! (I love hearing back from authors that I enjoy!!)
I just read your review for Surfacing – thank you so much! Really made my day!
lol quite honestly, I’m not really sure what’s in store for Zoe and Balt. Personally, I went into it thinking of it as a stand alone story and, as you aptly mentioned, wanted to leave it open-ended like “The Giver.”
There isn’t a plan for a sequel in the cards, but I can say I wouldn’t be totally against continuing the story. I guess we’ll just have to see what the future holds…
I do have some other things in the works but, unfortunately, my agent quit the business so I’ve had to start my writing career from stage 1 again. The book I wrote after Surfacing wasn’t able to find a home but I’m getting some good early feedback from agents with the newest one I wrote. Hopefully things work out ::fingers crossed::
Anyways, thank you so much for the review and spreading the word about my book! If you or any of your students have any questions about it, shoot them my way and I’ll gladly answer them!
Thanks again! Happy reading!
He did the ::fingers crossed:: motion like I always do! He seems really nice, doesn’t he?
Well, there you have it…not a sequel to Surfacing for now, but some other books coming down the pike…I guess that will ride me over!
I offered to review other books by Mr. Magro, and I hope I get a chance to do that! I really like his writing style.
So, don’t let this discourage you from reading Surfacing, as I don’t regret it. It’s just a little open-ended, but still worth the adventure!!
