THE END! Yes - I got to write that Saturday night, on schedule! It's just over 73,000 words, which is a bit short for a commercial fantasy paperback, but not too short to be submittable to agents and editors.
Specifically, I now have to edit and proof it for Friday, which is the deadline for the Suvudu novel contest. First prize is a complete edit by a Del Rey editor. Runner up prizes are a shelf load of Del Rey books. And even if I don't win the contest I will have won myself a complete manuscript that can then be sent out to editors. Let the editing binge begin!
