I'm probably about 70% of the way through Chapter 13 first write. It's been a busy week for me, but I'm going to give it my best shot to have it finished and in the hands of some pre-readers before tomorrow.
I *can* tell you that Ryan's starting to really feel the effects of the Device - and I don't think it's much longer until it comes crashing between his ears.
Anyway, I'm going to finish up some things and get back to writing. Thanks for all of the emails and messages.
