Reading Order

Normally it would be obvious what order a person would read a series in. And that is true when someone is organized and never veers off onto tangents. 

That’s not how it happened. I went off onto tangents! But then I came back. 

Due to this hilarious situation of me, Nicole, writing stuff out of order, well, we find ourselves here, don’t we. 

No problem. 

So, first of all, I’ll give you the order I wrote everything in. 

Then I’ll organize it for you on timeline and tell you precisely when to read each book in case you’d like to have events straight in your head. 

Someday I may hire my designer to do a cool illustration of all this, but for now, I’m an author and not a graphic designer. So, you’re getting the very unattractive, barebones look at the reading order. Built around type and columns. 

Because I’m a writer.

Ultimately, the timeline order follows publication order, the primary difference being the 6 Moons short story, “Across the Aether.” So we don’t even need to compare them, but I’m doing that. Just because…

Currently the only series that needs a reading order detail is anything in the 6 Moons universe. That includes the Holly Drake Jobs books and the 6 Moons Side Jobs.
