  1. Dear Miss Betsy Schow,
    I love your book Spelled; it kept me on the edge of my seat! I was just wondering if you were going to write a sequel to it? If you reply to this it would warm my heart!
    Sincerely, Tekoa

    1. Working on the next 2 books right now. Thank you so much for reading and letting me know you liked it

      1. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for writing Spelled. Gave me a new perspective on life and romance. I really want to buy the book, so when the second comes out, I think I would buy it before reading it! And please can you tell me when the second book will come out and what it will be named?

        1. Working on it now. Hoping to have it come out in winter 2016, but some medical issues with my kids might delay. As for name… that’s still a secret

          1. I loved spelled my favorite book ever and I can’t wait to read the next one

          2. I loved reading spelled and can’t wait till the next comes out. Your book reminded me of another great series I move read before that was great, but ruined the move, ” The Wizard of Oz.” I hope you’ll take my suggestion and read it or look at it. The first in the series is called, “Dorthy Must Die”

      2. When is the release date for the second book to spelled I love it so much and the ending is so nerve-racking. I am on the edge of my seat. All I know is the title is “Wanted”.

  23. Love Spelled! Read it in less then 24 hours. can’t wait for the next books! I felt as I was there with Dot and Kato. Which was a good thing. The book took away my foot pain, as I’m recovering from foot surgery.

    1. Well, sorry about the foot pain, but glad you enjoyed the book :) Thanks

  24. On goodreads it says you have a book called wanted coming out winter of 2016. Is that the sequel for Spelled?

  25. Just started Spelled. I am a few chapters in. It is amazing. Can not wait until the 2nd book comes out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. Absolutely loved Spelled – I just finished it, and I was telling my husband that I wish there had been more young adult fantasy like this when I was a kid. I practically lived in the library in those days, and this would have been a story that I would have HAD to add to the ‘permanent’ shelf – which meant spending my own money :)
    Thank you, for giving today’s young adult readers something to sharpen their imaginations with!
    looking forward to the next installment.

  27. it took me less than a day to read spelled and i am just dying to get the next book. the wait feels so long that i have read spelled 5 times and my favorite parts about 50 no exaggeration

  28. I just finished reading Spelled. It was sooooooo good. I love the Wizard of Oz so this book was perfect for me. I absolutely cannot wait until the next book comes out. I heard that Rexi is the main character for the next book but are Dorthea , Kato and Verde in the story too?

  29. Just finished Spelled. Loved every bit of it. I mean sure Dot is spoiled but I’m so happy she grew up a little. Not to mention the romance between her and Kato is just too cute. I loved how when they first met things just went downhill over the mountain and far away. I almost pixel myself in laughter. Thank you for this. Can’t wait for next installment!!!!

  30. Hi Betsy! I just finished reading Spelled as in literally. I just want you to know that I really love the way how you write it and the turn of events are so good. I’m waiting for the 2nd and 3rd book!

  31. Hi Betsy! I just finished reading Spelled as in literally! I really love the way how you write it and the turn of events is so good. Is the sequel of Spelled already out?

  32. I know the release date for Wanted is on February 1st (it’s on Goodreads) What is in store for Dot, Kato, and Rexi. Also I cried a little when Rexi died Because we are kind of similar.

    1. Well, you’ll be happy to know then that Rexi is the lead character of WANTED… so stay tuned
