Mad World Book 4 exists in a weird universe in the writing. I talk about the writing process — how this used to be Book 3 and how the story changed. Plus — what’s the roadmap, what’s the plan? Am I ever going to see the end of this series? Uh, hopefully.
After reading Mad World Books 1-3 (a whopping 1100 pages and like 480k words over five days), I made some notes about what I want to finish, the characters I want to make sure we get closure for, and what my central narrative conflict is for the whole series. Plus, let’s talk about the tricky balance of writing versions of characters that are recognizable to the viewers from 17 years ago, newer viewers, and also characters who grow over three books.
