First Draft of Mad World, Book 4 Completed!

Hello! Just dipping in for a moment to report that I did the impossible — I completed the alpha draft of Book 4 today! It’s around 522 pages and 186k words. I will be checking in tomorrow with more news about revision plans and NaNoWriMo and when you can expect regular posting to come back to Crimson Glass. I appreciate your patience while I focused exclusively on getting this done by October 31. There were definitely days when I didn’t know if we could do it, but I was able to pull it out.



  • That’s great
