This is a very serious question that I am curious about. My "cowriter"/"editor" (who has been slacking) has wanted me to kill off characters and we are planning a sequel to the first book. At least two to three characters that are important to the book die (not going to mention whom) and they are good. One "bad" guy if you will dies. Should there be like a balance of how many people are killed? Or should it not matter as long as i have it evenly space out?
