The Hobbit is 95,356 words long.
Book 3 is currently just over 94,000 words, and there is still a bit of plot left. With my publisher, I can go up to 120,000 words.
In the words of Remy Zero: SOMEBODY SAAAAAAVVVVVVE MEEEEEE!
As of the writing of this post, I am going back and reading what I have so far. Because I want to make sure my perspective is clear so I can give you all a slam-bang finish for the series…though, I know, book two (HOLES IN THE VEIL) hasn’t come out yet.
My sister has said time and time again how fascinating it is being related to a writer. She didn’t have perspective of the process before I started my career. Like how I’m writing book three while proofreading book two while promoting book one, which just released a few months ago. Madness.
Keep your nose in a book,
