Walk a Mile (Book Two in the Sixth Sense series): Six months after starting their hunt for a serial killer who is still at large, FBI agents Jerry Lee Parker and John Flynn are partners in every sense. But Jerry has serious doubts about their relationship and whether they would even be together if not for the way Flynn changed after touching a mysterious artifact in a museum.

Flynn hates the extraordinary power bestowed on him by the artifact and wants nothing more than to have a normal life again. Jerry fears that without the unusual connection they forged, Flynn will no longer want or need him. Chasing after a similar artifact takes them back to Flynn’s old stomping grounds in Washington D.C., where his newfound abilities uncover long-buried secrets, the kind people would kill to protect. But they aren’t the only ones looking for these powerful relics, and what they discover will threaten their relationship—and their lives.

  1. I loved the third book in the Sixth Sense series! I know it was just released, but when should I expect the next one? And how many books r u planning to write in this series?

    • Yay! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series! The good news is that there are at least 1-2 more stories planned–the bad news is I’m a bit of a slow writer. 😉 Hopefully, we’ll see the next installment out on 2016!

      • I just finished Truth and Consequences. I lived the series so far.
        Do you have a date for the fourth book? Please tell me it will be out soon!!!!!

        • Oh yay! I’m so pleased you’re enjoying the series! The good news is I’m working on the final installment, Deal with the Devil. The bad news is that writing is going a bit slowly at the moment. I’m behind on several major projects due to illness and family crises. I’ve got one more project on a deadline for the first of August, and then it is back to working on DWTD. Unfortunately, I doubt it will have a 2017 release date, but I’m hoping for sometime in early 2018. *fingers crossed*

    • Oh, I wish I could say it was. I asked DSP once about what goes into the decision making process on that, and they said ‘sales’. Mine aren’t there for the series, unfortunately.

      Sorry about the long delay to responding–the notification got lost along the way.

      I do have *one* book out on Audible, if you’re interested–it’s the sport horse story, Fool’s Gold.

      • I have listened to Fool’s Gold and rated it on audible. I also requested your truth and consequences series. I can’t wait for Deal with the Devil. Have you thought about Patreon? I know most authors use facebook, but I am happy to subscribe and pay a monthly subscription to get pre-release excerpt options or even just process discussions or updates. I would love to get my friends and fellow readers agitating for your books 🙂 I bought your books initially through DSP so amazon ratings are not possible but I have rated them on goodreads.

        • Aw, thank you, Danielle! That’s very kind of you. I have toyed with the idea of Patreon in the past, but the truth of the matter is this past year has been tough for me–so much so I’ve scarcely written a word. At this time, I feel I can’t commit to the pressure of providing new material for Patreon (though it might push me to write more, eh?).

          You’ve reminded me I really need to get back to Deal with the Devil. It’s been on hold for so long, I was afraid no one would be interested. Every bit of encouragement helps, though. You have no idea how much. It’s readers like you that make me determined to get back to writing again. Thank you.

          • I do hope that you do get back to writing Deal with the Devil as I love that series. I have read them all at least 3 times each!

          • Goodness, there’s no higher praise than that! Thank you! And I promise, I will finish. My goal is to get it out in 2019 if at all possible.

  2. Hi! I love this serie!
    I am brazilian, sorry my english! I read his books, even with my miserable English. And i love so much Flynn and Jerry!!!! I’m anxious for the fourth book.
    Come soon 2019!


  3. Hello! I read in a previous comment that you think no one would be interested in Deal with the devil! I’m absolutely shocked you think that, I’m going crazy at the thought of a Book 4 ie. crazy happy. Please please finish this series!

    • Oh, thank you! I suspect my fears lie in the fact that it is taking me so long to get it done and I’m afraid no one will care when I finally do. But encouragements such as this remind me that if nothing else, I owe it to myself and everyone who enjoyed the characters to finish the series. I fully intend to do so–but health issues and a heavy workload are slowing me down. I’d hoped to already have it finished by now, but that was being overly optimistic on my part. Still, you have no idea how pleased I am to read your kind words here. 🙂

  4. I love the Sixth Sense series. I know that real life can interfere with writing so I just wanted to let you know that no matter how long it takes you to get Deal with the Devil out, I’ll be waiting for it. Thank you for all your hard work and pleasure you’ve brought through your writing.

  5. Is there an update on when the 4th book in the Sixth Sense series will be available?! Anxiously waiting for the next book 🙂

    • I apologize for the delay. Life has been dealing me a series of blows lately, and my recent decision to request my rights from Dreampspinner Press has set me back even further. I’d love to tell you 2020, but I’ve made promises before I haven’t been able to keep. But I will do my best to get it out in 2020.

  6. Hi Sarah! I just discovered this series and loved it! I really hope to read Book 4 this year … I want to know what happens!

    • That’s so kind of you! I’m afraid it’s not going to happen in 2020. The pandemic has changed everything in my life, and unfortunately, work is harder than ever. I’m looking toward 2021 now, but it’s been so long since the last book, it’s starting to feel like a pipe dream. I’m so sorry to disappoint. 🙁

  7. The conclusion to the story of Parker and Flynn is worth waiting for! Delays in the present environment (toxic since the election of 2016, deadly since the beginning of 2020) aren’t only understandable, but to be expected. 2021 promises to be better (lordy, I hope I haven’t just jinxed it!) so I hope you’ll find yourself rested and recovered enough to write again. Best wishes and hugs sent your way!

  8. Hi Sarah,

    please do tell us that you really will release the forth book in the series, and that it will be the final one! (And maybe even this year, pretty please, fingers crossed and all that!) I soo hate to be a nag (and I honestly mean it!!!!), and I’m sure everyone understands that life sometimes happens and comes between us and our original plans (happens to all of us, sigh), but I really, really would get to know how everything ends.
    I had this problems with series before, more than once or twice to be honest, that the end of a series never sees the light of day, and that really is so frustrating to a reader, to spend money again and again on books, and then never to be able to find out what everything that happened originally was about.
    Nowadays I start with a series very much often when all the books are released, and not one day earlier, just to make sure I really can read until the story comes to it’s full conclusion.
    Stepping down from my soap box now, don’t want to bore you to death, lol
    But pretty please, give us book four!!!!
    Thanks and all the best

    • Oh, Eve. I do understand your frustration, and believe me it frustrates me to see that so much time has passed since the previous book. There are a lot of reasons for the delay–initially it had much to do with my issues with the previous publisher of the series. They owned first right of refusal to the series and the characters, and I didn’t want to give more money to a press that wasn’t paying me what I was owed. Then I went through a series of major personal losses: family members, pets, my publisher, my online communities. The words simply wouldn’t come. At the beginning of last year, I started the final installment–Deal with the Devil–but Covid sort of derailed me once again.

      If I am being completely honest, I have my doubts that I can do justice to these characters after all this time and bring their story to a satisfying conclusion. I fear no matter what I write, it will only disappoint after such a long time, and the fear of continuing to disappoint readers is paralyzing.

      All of you who have loved these characters and want to see a conclusion to their story deserve better. But I’m no longer certain I can deliver that. 🙁

  9. I am a lifelong reader and, when I became unemployed three years ago, I increased my reading to about one book a day. So, I’ve read a LOT of books.  I can’t imagine the work and creativity that goes into a book; I lost my creativity years ago. I have great respect for anyone who can write a book and get it published and win writing awards.

    “But for most of us, it’s just that life is tough and we’re all looking for a little something to look forward to, to make things easier. To make it bearable. You say my writing stories is like that. At the end of the day, it gives back to the collective universe because it makes someone’s day a bit brighter.”

    I hope that someday your writing mojo returns, and Jerry/Lee and John can work with Hal on finding the remaining Boudica Box and maybe get drawn into other conspiracy theories.

    Thank you for making my days brighter.

    • Oh, Frankie. Your kind words here mean a lot to me. I’m glad my small effort could and did make your days brighter, as your words did here for me. I also hope that one day that mojo will return, though the longer it’s gone, the less likely that feels. I started something at the beginning of the year, got 10 K into it, and it just floundered and failed. A large part of the issue has to do with an unrelenting day job combined with increasingly terrifying world and national events. I know in my heart that means that even more than before, “writing (stories) to make things bearable” is more important than ever, but at the end of the day, it’s hard to find the spoons. In my fantasy world, I quit the day job and write to my heart’s content. If that were the case, Jerry/Lee and John (and even Hal!) would find their HEAs. But thank you for taking the time to write to me. It means more than you could ever know.

  10. I’ve just finished Truth and Consequences. I truly loved this series. So unusual and really engaging. I read through the comments and I FEEL YOU on the difficulties of the past few years (not even knowing your specific challenges).

    There are readers like me (I read all three books in two days not knowing that you have been struggling or feeling like it was “a long time ago” that you started in with this story), it’s all fresh and new for me!

    I’ve followed you on Amazon! All my best to you.

    • Oh, I’m so delighted you’ve discovered this series–I wish I could tell you I have the final installment in the bag, but I don’t. I’m also not promising a release anymore–too often I’ve seen my deadlines come and go without making any progress. I don’t want to encourage hopes when I can’t deliver. I’d like to believe there WILL be a resolution to the series, however. If only I hadn’t left so many loose threads! But we shall see, and thank for you for the lovely feedback and support.

  11. Hello, Sarah. Greetings from Brazil.

    I just finished the Sixth Sense series in two days and I’m writing this while having the most intense book hangover I’ve ever felt. Literally, I cried and sobbed while commuting to work over recalling some of the toughest altercations between the main characters. That´s how much I was invested in the story and how painstakingly raw they felt.

    P.S.: I just teared up again.

    At first, when I realized the third book was not the final one, I had an internal temper tantrum (didn’t we all?) then immediatelly went searching for the remaining ones. However, as I read your blog posts and noticed your struggles, my hopes dimmed. On a slightly brighter side, my private judgements also faded, replaced by an impending wistfulness.

    I don´t exactly know what my goal is by writing you this, still the uniqueness of your stories compelled me to at least reach you and tell you I wholeheartdly loved your series. Even if the fourth book never comes to fruition, you already brought out a lot inside me. Nonetheless, I can´t help but mighty hope that you and the inspiration may find each other again. Not the perfunctory type inspiration, but the real one.

    • Wow! Let me say here, it’s feedback like this that warms my heart and encourages me not to give up hope of finishing this series (or really, writing in general). There is a real sense of “how many years has it been since you released the last book? Too much time has passed and no one will care…” and that is definitely a factor in my inability to move forward on this series. But you also nailed it in the last sentence: “Not the perfunctory type inspiration, but the real one.”

      For those of you out there who love this series and want to see a conclusion, I *don’t* want to slap down 70K words and call it done. I want to do do justice to the series and tie up all the loose ends in a satisfying manner.

      What I’m no longer doing is promising a potential release date. I’ve done that for several years running now, and I’m just setting both readers and myself for disappointment. I went as far as starting the final installment (was it this year? last year?) but got about 15K into it when it stalled on me. The last couple of years have been hard on everyone, I know. But I came into them already low on fuel, and now my car is out of gas in the middle of a desert.

      I can tell you this, however. Every email, every comment like this one, refills the canteen with water. I might be stranded in the desert, but water is life, and it helps me get a little closer to civilization.

      All of you who love this series deserve more than I can give it right now. But I haven’t given up because of readers like you. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your words mean more to me than you could ever know.

  12. Hi Sarah.
    I came here looking for news on the next book but what I found was a fellow writer in much the same position as I find myself with my own writing. So, please know that you’re not alone. I’m sitting on the timeout chair beside you.

    I’m so sorry that we’re both floundering, but I have all the confidence in the world that we’ll find our ways back to the joy of writing. Just please be kind to yourself and know that you have many eager readers pulling for you. (Me! Me! Me! *jumps up and down and waves*) We’ll all be here when the words finally come. I promise. ❤

    I’m eyeballing 2022 for a comeback. I hope I see you there. And if you ever want to chat, you now have my email address.

    • Oh, I wish you weren’t in the same boat because it is a sucky boat to be in. I think if I hadn’t already been struck so low by personal events in 2017-2018, I might not have been flattened by 2020 onwards. I was *just* starting to catch my breath and feel normal again when normality went out the window. As an essential worker, I had to keep going no matter what, and that meant my creative well was dry with no way to refill it.

      Here’s hoping to a better year for all of us ahead, one in which our imaginary friends begin talking to us again. And thank you for your kind offer of chatting if needed. That door is open for you too.

  13. I just finished re reading your Sixth Sense trilogy. I’m sad to learn that there may be no resolution but understand where you are coming from. I’m wishing you all the best and hope you’re doing well.

    • Aw, thank you very much. I appreciate it. I suspect there will not be a resolution–in fact, I’m giving serious consideration to closing down this website (it’s up for renewal). So I’ve stopped telling myself (and others) that I will finish this series. I’ve let so much time pass now for various reasons that in my own mind, I can’t see bringing the series to a satisfying conclusion, and that adds another element of pressure to the block.

      I’m pleased you enjoyed the series though, and took the time to let me know. That is very thoughtful of you. I’m touched that anyone is still reading the series, to be honest. I’ve ghosted everyone for so long. 🙂
