Is a 3rd book on it's way?

I just finished reading the second book, and now I just have to know: is a 3rd book on it's way? I feel like I've eaten, but am still hungry! Want more carrots... I mean books! ;-)

Re: Is a 3rd book on it's way?

In a recent podcast Tad confirmed that book 3 should be written this year. But other than that news has been slow about the series.

Re: Is a 3rd book on it's way?

Normally we'd just be complaining Tad wasn't writing fast enough... Now Deborah too... :/

Can't wait for the new installments (buying the paperbacks btw).

Re: Is a 3rd book on it's way?

So 2012 came and went, the year in which the third installment supposedly was written. Yet, here we stand empty handed, deprived of our believes in any of the Williams couple to deliver sequals without antagonizing‎ waits...

WE WANT MORE ORDINARY FARM, NOT NOW, YESTERDAY!!!

There. :)

Re: Is a 3rd book on it's way?

I can asure you that odfarm 3 is in the making. Deb recently tweeted that she's writing but with the marketing of Happy Hour she prolly has not enough time.
Let us all be patient and thankful that we are not in GRRM dimensions ...

Well... OF#3 was supposed to be written in 2012, however in august 2013 Deb tweeted they were writing it, then we stand here in august 2014 and the news about it still hasnt changed much. In the end I prefer quality over speed but 2 years over due without any real progress is a bit of a downer.

I just love the series and can't wait for the next installment(s!).

Re: Is a 3rd book on it's way?

I'm personally very sorry for this, and I know Deb is too.  The problem is mostly scheduling: Deb's had a huge amount of other work to do that has really cut into her writing time.  We're trying to rectify that so she can get back to OF3, and then I'll get my turn, and then we'll finish it up together and it will be a book.

Re: Is a 3rd book on it's way?

Not enough progress if you ask my daughter. She loves the books like mad (she always uses Lucinda Jenkins as online name) and waits for Heirs of Odfarm as impatiently as I do for Witchwood Crown and Door of Stone.

I could use the daughter excuse provided I had a daughter, this 43 year old just loves the series himself... ;)

Re: Is a 3rd book on it's way?

We've been slowed up by selling TV rights to the Ordinary Farm books, so we're waiting to see what they're doing.  We were planning to wrap up the story in the third volume, but we might decide not to if there's interest in actually making the show.

TV rights?  That sounds wonderful. Anything more you can share about that or is it too early for that?
