Housekeeper Series Info

I’ve been getting questions about what’s happening next with the Housekeeper series so I thought I’d give you some quick info on what I have planned.

Q: Are there more books coming?

A: First, thanks for reading! Second, yes! There are seven books planned in the current plot arc.

Q: Could you hurry it up please?

A: Again, thanks for the enthusiasm! So, the good news is that I’m over here working diligently. That said, I have a day job, and to be honest, I’m not a particularly fast writer. So know that I’m beavering away on the next book and trying to get it into your hands as soon as I reasonably can.

Q: Is there a way for me to find out when the next release is ready?

A: Yes! I’d be delighted if you join my newsletter. My Wynnsiders hear about all the news first and get access to fun stuff like giveaways. You can sign up through the website here (mattesonwynn.com) or through the links in the ebooks. If newsletters are not your thing, I also post on socials when release time is nigh.

  1. Thanks so much for the update. I just found your series in Summer & read all 3 in one go. I really enjoyed them 😀

  2. Really enjoy this series. I’ve checked periodically for new releases. So thank you for the update. I am excited for more, and really just needed to know that there will be more! I’ll wait patiently for the next one.

  3. HOLY HANNAH!……. I absolutely loved this series. Read the first one on KU and enjoyed it so much that I bought all three. I read all three this weekend. I will be watching for more stories with great anticipation. Nothing I love more then finding a great new author.

    1. Oh thank you, Wanda! Delighted you’re enjoying the series so much. Looking forward to sharing the next part of Finn’s story with you.

  4. Found by chance, borrowed on Kindle and then bought because I found it addictive. But… what’s next? When do we hear what happens to Finn, Bayley and Fuzzy. Why is the necklace terrified of the door and what lies behind it. Is Will a dastardly plotter? Will there be coffee?

    Thanks so much for a bright spark in an otherwise grey time

    1. Hi Jim,
      Thank YOU so much for the kind words! They are much appreciated. And I love your questions. Funny you should ask about the neckace…I’ve been having some very interesting conversations with Percy the last few days 😉 Book 4 is well underway and will be published later this year with 3 more to follow in this plot arc. I’m slow, but there IS more coming.

  5. Excellent. At my age time is an elastic and precious commodity so looking forward to it. Finn is one of those rare characters who are both believable and also develop as the story builds up. Also he ability to land in trouble keeps everything nicley on the boil.

    And I read the Pantom tollbooth a long time ago and it is still one of my favourite fantasy doorways into another world.

    1. That’s such a great way to refer to The Phantom Tollbooth—”fantasy doorway.” It really is! And so glad you’re looking forward to Book 4!

  6. Fantastic series 👏. I’m hoping more ooka are coming. Can’t wait to see what happens with Fin & Wil. There are so many possibilities with such an original story. It’s hard to wait for more books after reading the first three. I’m looking forward to the books to come! Be well & keep writing ✍️!

  7. I just read all three of the book in 2 days, I am so in love with this series.

    I hope the world isn’t kicking your butt and that we will soon se more of Finn, Bayley and Fuzzy.

    Love from Sweden

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and for the kind words! As far as I know, you’re my first reader from Sweden, so I get to color in another country on my “places where people have read my book” map! I think the world is kicking all of our butts, to varying degrees, but I’m grateful to report that I am currently hanging in there and working away on Book 4. So glad you’re enjoying the series and hope that Finn and Fuzzy are adding some magic to your day to alleviate, or at least provide a temporary escape from, any butt kicking 🙂

  8. Really glad to see, there will be more books! Found the first book by recommendation and had to wander around the camping in Italy for enough connection to download the other two.
    Read till midnight because I couldn’t stop once started with a book.

    Have a nice summer!
    Greetings from Switzerland

    1. Camping in Italy sounds fantastic. Color me jealous! Delighted you’re enjoying the series; thank you for reading, and thank you to whomever recommended the series to you. So far as I know, you’re my first reader from Switzerland, which means Yay! I get to color in another country on my “where my readers are” map 🙂 Hope you also have a nice summer, despite the crazy heat.

  9. Thank you SO much for this delightful series. I am eagerly awaiting the next adventure! Just the thing to get through a stressful day! The setting is magical (pun intended), the characters are endearing or annoying as they are meant to be, and the dialog moves beautifully! Thank you for the gift!

    1. Hi Shari, You are very welcome! Thank YOU for reading. Helping people take a break from the stresses of life is one of my goals, so thanks for letting me know I’m on the right track. More to come soon!

  10. Just finished rereading Housekeeper 1-3 and really hope the next book in your series magically appears soon. So many hanging ends: what happens with Nor and Mila; how many babies does the Grack have; will Finn finally realize that she should kick the stupid “liaison” to the curb…and so much more! Love the characters, love Bayley and Fuzzy and even Zo. I know you can only do so much. Just know a lot of us are trying to be patient.

    1. Hi Gail, So glad you are loving the series so much! I’m working away at Book 4, so hopefully not too much longer. Thank you so much for being patient!

      1. You’re such a terrific writer. Downloaded Finn’s trip story—thank you!—and it was a blast. Love her ability to see the fun while not sounding like a dummy. So much good heart.

        1. Oh thank you! That’s very kind of you. And yay that you liked the short story! It was fun to write.

  11. Just signed up after reading your series so far (which I loved). Have now finished the short story, which was a lovely bonus. Can’t wait for book 4. No pressure, it’s hard to juggle a job and find time to write, but you are appreciated!

  12. Stumbled over this series on Amazon kindle and read the three books in 2 days (non stop – I really need to get on top of my real life now!) Im Swedish but have lived in Scotland the past 18 years.
    I just wanted to say that your books are an amazing adventure, the story line, the characters, the creatures, the house the humour, the empathy and friendships (- and the baddies of course!) makes it such a perfect world to disappear into!
    Well Done! I can’t wait to read the next adventure 🙂

    1. Hi Maria, Haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Sweden yet, but I love Scotland! So delighted you’re enjoying the adventure, and thanks so much for the kind words.

  13. Absolutely love these books! Read all three on Kindle unlimited the ordered all three to read again and put in my physical library while waiting for the 4th :). Much appreciate your time and effort to make them so enjoyable and addicting!

    1. Hi Jim! Thanks for checking in. I’m doing Nanowrimo this month (National Novel Writing month, a yearly event where writers around the world try to write 50k words in a month). I’m using it to try and finish Book 4. That still means there’s a couple of rounds of editing ahead once I finish, but I’ll be thrilled to have all of the first draft on the page at last. I’m on track for the 50k; as of yesterday I’d written 10k new words. Fingers crossed I can keep up the pace 🙂

  14. Wow. 50k words sounds formidable. More power to you!! I’ll curb my impatience and re read the first 3. Sorry to be importunate, my only excuse is that its such an engrossing series. A bit like Earthsea which also took a while.

    1. No need to be sorry! I appreciate the encouragement. And your continued patience! And oh my, thank you for the comparison to Earthsea. High praise indeed.
