    Just to be clear, chapter 1 is a revised version of the short story from this thread.
    Hofstadter's Law: It will always take longer than you expect, even if you take into account Hofstadter's Law.

    I meant the title of this thread, sweetie. I think your chapter titles are just fine! Although I would have to think about Fraud. It might need some changing.

    Oh, ha.

    If you want to, sure. I am pretty excited about it.

    Yes, if you're looking for lots of action, monsters and stuff. I enjoyed them, especially Alpha. But I would recommend reading them in order to get the most out of the series, as the characters develop nicely.

    Now at 87,000+ words (278 pages), and I finished a very significant chapter last night. Actually tired me out pretty well. I think I now have one chapter and an epilogue remaining, which will probably put me around 95,000 words at The End. A good length, that should leave plenty of room for cutting and more brevity, since 95k words in this genre seems on the long side.

    Here's the announcement I was supposed to make on November 1st:

    The first draft of my novel is done! It is just over 95,000 words long (or 302 pages), complete with an Epilogue.

    Now I just have to rewrite it all and make it actually good.

    Edit: Only two months late!
