I have started writing The Veil of White (The Final Book in A Throne of Souls)... I'm not going to say much about this book except that it will shatter all of your preconceived notions and make you want to reread A Kingdom Forgotten all over again to see all the missed clues that were provided at the outset of this journey. This is the book (if the first four didn't do it already) that will test your belief system to its very limits as the research required to write it (and The Rise of Hope) has tested mine.
A little more information on what has already been committed to paper thus far... As most writers will do, I created the framework of the overall story, by writing the beginning and ending of each book. Given that this is a 5+1-world story of Man and Creation itself, there was already a ton of cross-genre content to cover without adding the complexities of foundational elements of physics and the nature of our shared reality. I'm speaking of things like the pseudo-Riemannian manifold (M) in Einstein's General Relativity and other foundational elements (like spinners) that go deeper than that. So, with all these elements plus the asynchronous storylines and all the time jumping and all the hundreds of characters, this has been a monster for me to contend with and I've said this before, but I won't attempt anything like this series ever again... Having said all that, I am now detailing the 40+ milestone events that flush out all the minor and mid-level details in between the major milestones already committed on paper. It's a process and if you've ever tried to write a serious, full-length novel before, you know what I'm talking about. But, I am committed to finishing this for you, for me, and for the living spirit of Robert Jordan.
I will be dedicating The Veil of White to you. With all my hopes and dreams for you... Charles
