After much consideration and deliberation, I have decided to turn the four part series A Realm Hereafter into five books.
I had originally planned for Book 4 to be a three part story. Parts 1 and 2 are one story, each telling a different half. The third part, which I had planned to incorporate into the book, is a storyline that is completely different. It takes off in a totally new direction. Considering this, I think that including the third part would actually detract from the first two rather than add to it. For me it feels as though I am putting too much in one book. I really want the main focus for Book 4 to be the first two parts. Therefore, the current title I had planned for #4 will actually be converted to Book 5 and I must now come up with a new one for #4.
