Super Seven
So, it's a year later than I had hoped for, but The Chronicles of Delarun is finally, finally complete! Taking these two days off work gave me the blessed time I needed to wrap up section 2, at last.

I daresay the reason I have been most eagerly anticipating finishing my seventh novel is not just for the sake of the story itself, but the dedication. They completely deserve it, and it has been hard to wait.

For the Towner Tribe, especially Joe and Mary, whose home has been a type of Delarun in my own life.

There! The waiting is ended. Well, for the dedication, anyway. Those who have been waiting on the .pdf of section 2, I will ask for just a few more weeks to finish bashing it into shape. I certainly intend to have it ready by t'DoL's birthday.

As for paper copies, that might be December. Assuming I'm not completely broke by then until February, ahem. Haven't had paper copies on my mind, so they haven't been in my budget. (Besides the fact I've been so slow what was the point? ;)

Last but not least, to make anyone like Hu-Hov out there happy, gotta have some NUMBERS!

Congrats! I am so glad to hear it is done. I am looking forward to
reading section 2.

A very fitting dedication. You need to let the Towners know.
