Hey Kat! # 23 you have listed as Dream Weaver? I thought it was Dream Chaser....at least when I looked last on Amazon (maybe they have it wrong). Can you let me know what's right?

Thanks :D

swetergrl said...

What a fantastic idea -- a source for keeping track of the most popular series in one place. Great blog.

Kat said...

Angela - you are right.

LOL - I was talking software with my mom as I was typing.

Angela said...

This list has been absolutely invaluable to me. I hate to read things out of order, so I check this everytime I finish one of her books, to see which is next...LOL

Thanks Kat!!

Ginger said...

My copies of DWTD and Sins of the Night do not have the short stories you posted. They only have the preview for the next book. Any idea where I can get the short stories?

bunkerwendy said...

Thanks for the list Kat!!
Only 9 more til Acheron!

Anonymous said...

Ginger, the short stories are available on the website. http://www.sherrilynkenyon.com/series.php?id=7# Just click the titles and they are in the excerpts.

is it possible to read all the short stories without having to buy them? I checked the website mentioned above but the stories are not complete

Lyndsay said...
