Despite the setbacks over the last year, despite having an infant in the house who still doesn't sleep through the night at eight months (*sob*), despite a toddler who has decided hanging off my leg is the greatest form of exercise and respect, I somehow managed to finish the first draft of The Reaper Rises.
I feel like this right now...
I guess you can say I'm ecstatic. I still have a few months of editing left, a beta round, and some quality time with my editor, but THE FIRST DRAFT IS DONE!
I'm already itching to start the last book in the series, so hopefully I'll get the chance in the next few weeks.
In the meantime, some stats for the curious (these will change, of course; I have a habit of slicing a lot while editing):
Total Page Count
Total Word Count
October 4 Word Total (finish date)
Words Written Since "Operation Finish Book 4" Began
And finally, for my stats junkies, here's the final report for "Operation Finish Book 4" from my project app...
Stay tuned for more release information as launch date nears. You're going to LOVE this book :).
