The first draft of Book 4 (still untitled) is probably over halfway done, sitting at 53,000 words. I made good progress on it last week, although I wish I could have done a bit more. Still, it’s coming along a lot faster than the third book, so I’m pretty pleased about that.
The plan this week is to add another 10,000 words or so, and once I’m over 60,000 words, it should be fairly simple to wrap things up. I’m especially excited to get to about word 75,000 because things are going to really speed up then when the surprise twist comes. Well, not really a twist, but something really cool is going to happen that will have you guys very happy.
Anyway, this one will be a fun book. It will feel much shorter than Beacon, but Beacon was also the longest book I’ve ever written. This will be more similar to the first two books in length.
