Sorry this was not posted earlier this morning. I forgot I hadn’t scheduled it, and then I was studying and doing laundry, oy.
A note that this story is going to be an ensemble piece, so the scenes I’m throwing at you with the PCPD and the rookies as well as Ned, Brooke, and the teens are there for a reason and are going to be crucial for Book 2. Just an fy 🙂
So happy with all the response to this so far! Before I give you the link, I wanted to put a mild trigger warning on this chapter (and one for the next). This chapter talks about the effects of drugs and overdoses, so just in case.
Thanks for the great response across all the sites for the first two chapters of Mad World! I’m really excited about where the story ended up going and this week’s chapter has some of my favorite scenes across the whole 19 chapters.
I’ve updated Mad World with Chapter 3.
I’ve posted Chapter 1 & Chapter 2 of Mad World: Break Me Down. I decided to post two chapters today for a few reasons. One, I posted the first chapter about a year or so ago and it’s mostly intact. I wanted you guys to have new material today. Two, Mad World has an odd number of chapters so this lets me complete the story on a Wednesday.
So excited for you guys to read this! Thanks to Angela for beta reading this and providing support!
Since Mad World ended up being an insanely intricate story, I didn’t think that I should put it all on one page at Crimson Glass. Like Damaged and Hand Me Down, I wanted some room to spread out.
Mad World is going to have three separate books published over the next year or two. The first, Break Me Down, will be published starting October 8, 2018 and concluding sometime in December. I will be posting two chapters a week.
Book 2, as yet untitled, should be out sometime in 2019. I had initially planned to post the first two books back to back, but it’s taking longer than I thought to write Book 2, and it may not be ready until January or February.
Book 3, also untitled, will not be published until later in 2019 or early 2020. (Let’s just stop and consider the fact that we’re here right now. How did we get almost to 2019 already? Lord.)
See you guys on October 8 for the first two chapters!
