So, it’s implied here in the first answer, but there’s a planned arc and number of books already? I was wondering as I finished the fourth one how many more “to go,” but haven’t found an answer just yet. Anyone know?

Current plan is 10 books together, but one-two extra is possible, depending on how it goes. Based on FB.

This not counting the short stories.

How many short stories are there?? I only know about 2….

Just the two so far 🙂

I’m planning more (or, more accurately, I think there are more lurking in corners, waiting to jump me), but there are also some Very Short City Between Things in my second series of CardCaper Monday shorts on the Author FB page =) The first one is called Pet Vs Vampire and the last is Hockey Sticks at Midnight…

I also thought that Blue was an excellent way to get a better picture of Pet–having someone who is impressed by her and likes her give us their impressions was very interesting.

Yes…he was very gruff and not terribly human 😂😂😂 Glad you enjoyed Blue, though! It was inspired by an episode from one of my favourite T.V. shows, Leverage!

!!! I loved the “blue” short – different narrator sympathetic to pet- I felt I got a good glimpse of pet through it. I couldn’t relate as well to the other narrator in the other short story, but I will have to reread it

Ya, see this is the book that confused me most! It felt… almost sideways. Perhaps b/c of the “unreliable narrator” thing. (I’m on my guard for all WRGingell’s writings now!! Slow learners can still be taught!)

I’ve been enjoying the rereads. Thank you again – to Kitty for the read-along and WR Gingell for the fantastic books!

Summer Read-Along: Between Shifts

We’re going into week two of our Read-Along, which means this week we’re jumping into Between Shifts.


There’s a body beneath the skip bins. Fae on the forklift. A vampire in the manager’s office. And there’s definitely something skeevy going on in the locker rooms.

Hi. I’m Pet. Well, not exactly Pet. I am a pet.

I was meant to stay out of it, but somebody’s gotta do something when humans are being killed by Behindkind creatures.

Lucky for me, my owners are just as dangerous and inhuman as the bad guys…

…maybe more.

As with all the books in this series Between Shifts is available to purchase, or to read via Kindle Unlimited. We’re going to discuss this book this Saturday, June 15.

And to kick off this week, we’ve got another another little snippet from W. R. Gingell herself!

Kitty: I’ve been dying to know–do you have a favorite character out of Zero, Athelas, and JinYeong?

W. R.: I DO have a favourite, but since I’ve already told my fans on the facebook page that I have a favourite and he doesn’t get the girl, so to speak, I don’t dare say which one he is! It will have to remain a secret until the final book, when all will be made clear (and I reveal him in a flourish at the end!)

Kitty: Oohhh, that gives me a very, very bad feeling…. But our next question: City Between is set in Tasmania, why did you decide to place it there?

W. R.: I decided to place it in Tasmania because that’s where I live at the moment, and because Hobart is a delightful amalgamation of old and new that constantly gives me joy (and ideas). Having said that, if I’d still been living in Queensland when I wrote this series, it would have been set there instead.

Kitty: That’s awesome–and very fitting considering the whole between/behind themes of the books! Lastly, as we’re heading into book two of this series, what’s one thing you–as the author–would want readers to know?

W. R: Hm. Since this is Between, things are not always as they seem—and things that one believes to be true, are not always true. Everyone knows about the unreliable narrator, but people sometimes forget that everyone is their own narrator—and the best of us are unreliable…

(Which is my way of saying ‘You fae think you’re pretty flamin’ clever, don’t you? But you’re not always right!’ blows raspberry)

Kitty: Okay, now that was a real truth bomb! And also that’s pretty fun to hear. I love Pet’s Psychos, but I wouldn’t mind seeing them humbled a bit. But thank you again for answering these questions for us! I can’t wait to discuss the next book.
