In addition to the Mad World update I have for you guys this morning, I also wanted to talk to you guys about the upcoming schedule at Crimson Glass over the next few months.
I had originally planned to publish Book 2 of the trilogy pretty much back to back with Book 1, but Book 2 was a lot harder to write and I had to go back to school. I probably won’t be able to even really get into writing it much until January, so at this point, we’re looking at either February or March for that.
On Thursday, NaNoWriMo kicks off. I’m writing Counting Stars, and I’ll be tweeting/blogging about it. I’ll have links for you guys on Wednesday’s update to follow that. It’ll be roughly sixteen chapters, which I expect to be able to finish entirely in November. I’ll only have to write two scenes a day, which is about the word count goal I have to hit for the event anyway.
If everything goes to plan, Book 1 of Mad World will finish up in the first week of December. I’ll be releasing Counting Stars in January (to run it through beta and give me time to revise). I’ve promised Damaged will return in February, and Counting Stars should take us through the first week of March.
I’m hoping by then Book 2 will be ready, but it means everything in my life has to go just right, and ha, that rarely happens. I’ll keep y’all posted.
Anyway, here’s Chapter Eight. Fun fact: this chapter did not exist in the original draft. I added it later when I wanted more Ric/Liz, Carly, and Jason/Liz material.
