Of course, my editors will have something to say about whether I have to go back and rewrite a bunch of stuff, but so far so good. I finished the last chapter and wrote the epilogue yesterday.
In case you haven't figured it out, I'm talking about "Living Next Door to Heaven." I posted Chapter 1 on April 24, 2014. It posted a chapter every three days until August 2015 when I was afraid I couldn't keep up the pace of posting that often. I had a pretty stressful project come up last fall and I thought it was better to keep posting on a regular schedule than to post on the old schedule and risk having to stop while I caught up. You'll be happy to know (I think) that when Part IX: Heaven's Gate begins posting on March 16, 2016, I will return to the every three days posting schedule.
And you'll know the book is finished and the last chapter will post June 14, 2016. How's that?
I've grown very fond of all the characters in LNDtH. They have a lot more story to go. After the end of this story, as Brian says, "It's really the kids' story from there. Maybe one of them will tell it some day." Maybe.
Oh. No one important to the story dies in the last six chapters. I mean three chapters. If you count the epilogue. At least, no one that anyone likes.
