Woohoo. I just queued up two more pages of Rita. Admittedly this is because I’ve arrived at a place in the story that needs to be super-minimal again, so I was able to knock them out very quickly. In an attempt to not completely try the patience of the people who’re actually reading each new page as it comes out, I’ve queued them both up for the coming week.
I think this is pretty close to being the halfway point of the whole story, too – book 1 was five chapters, and I’m hoping to keep books 3 and 4 about the same length. Though I would not be surprised if each successive book is a little longer than the previous one, as I realize there are more things I have to set up for the ending than I’ve anticipated, or things I thought would be brief throwaway lines that turn out to need more exploration.
