Ta-daah!

The Grass King's Concubine is finally done. Every last line revised and reviewed, format sorted, pages numbered and headed and so forth. It runs just over 147,000 words, which seems odd to me, as I kept thinking, while writing it, that it was too short in the middle. That's a bit longer than Living With Ghosts, but at present that seems to be the length it wants to be -- I cut quite a lot as I went along anyway.
It's okay, I think, after all (although I still have my doubts about chapter 21. Not to be trusted, that one.) Now it goes out into the world (or to the Appropriate Authorities, at least). I hope they like it. Ferret women aren't to everyone's taste (though I like them).

And even better, weather permitting, I should get the marquis back later today.
Now all I need to do is have lunch and clean the kitchen.

Fantastic. I remember when it was less than 15K. I look forward to seeing how it turned out.

I am rather fond of that title too, it has to be said.
Well, I have to writer the WF story and I have to get on with some research reading.... I did take yesterday off, though, as the marquis is home again.

Am very pleased and look forward to reading it .

In the meantime, would you like to borrow "Pride and prejudice with Zombies" to decompress ?

Well done on slaying the beast of a novel (I'm pretty sure you called it that once in front of me).
