Cryptid Hunters vs. Tentacles 117

I’ve gotten a a lot of emails the past week from readers who are a little confused about TENTACLES…

Just to clarify TENTACLES is the sequel to CRYPTID HUNTERS.

Can you read the novels out of order? Yes, but it would be better to read them in order.

TENTACLES begins almost immediately after Marty and Grace return from The Congo in Central Africa.

Will there be a 3rd book in the series? The short answer is yes (and probably several more). The longer answer can be found by scrolling through these blog entries to “Will there be a sequel to Cryptid Hunters and Tentacles?”

I’m delighted so many of you are enjoying Tentacles. If you haven’t read Cryptid Hunters I’m certain you’ll like it just as well Tentacles.

    If you’re talking about a 3rd Cryptid Hunters book. The sequel, Chupacabra, will be out in 2012. While you’re waiting I suspect you will enjoy my other novels, if you haven’t already read them.

    Mr. Smith,

  • Unknown :)

    Mr. Roland Smith.

    You must understand that most of the people commenting on this are simply not patient enough to wait a whooole year to read the next book in the series.

    So, simply put, please hurry 🙂

  • Haley Da Bomb Diggity

    Hey mr Smith! i just found out that there will be a third book, and i am so excited! i have read cryptid hunters twelve times! it is one of my favoritests series ever!!!! thankyou for writing them! 🙂

  • Diane

    My 4th grader shared with me the Cryptid Hunter Series and even made a model of the Coelecanth ship from Tentacles. I just finished Tentacles (would love to do the exploring that the characters get to do!) and found your website to find out if there’s a third book in the series. We will look forward to Chupacabra in Sept 2012. Why does it take so long for a book to be published if you can write in 3 months? Any chance they can get it out sooner, so we have some fun summer reading??

  • austen

  • Addison

    Hey mr. Smith. Last night I planned on reading like three chapters of cryptid hunters but instead had it finished by 2 am. Lol. Tonight I also planned on only reading a few chapters of tentacles but guess what it’s 1 am and I already finished. =D if you could please answer this question that would be almost as brilliant as Ted. What month do you believe the next book will come out?

  • roland Post author

    I’m still working on it, but hopefully it will be out in September. I’ll post the exact publication date when I know what it is.

  • Addison

    And ok. Thank you very much. =D will any new cryptids be introduced in this book? If so might you tell me? Lol jk. I know you won’t ruin the surprise. But could u give us a brief description of the new book? Like what would be on the back of the book please?

  • Alicia

    Hello, Roland.

    I absolutely ADORED Cryptid Hunters. Make it come out on May 1st! EVERYONE in my grade has read Cryptid Hunters and Tentacles and is talking about Chupacabra. Can you please come to Tampa, FL Berkeley Preparatory School? I think you should write a fourth book about Bigfoot, and a fifth book about The Loch Ness Monster. Don’t forget about coming to Berkeley!
