Almost Finished

I'm almost there. Two scenes to write, and Beyond the Pale is done. I'm taking it to the Moxie tomorrow to see what they think, and then I'll polish and edit for a week or two, depending on what issues come up, what details I need to verify with the nice Irish internet friends who've helped me with fact-checking, etc. I tend to write lean on description, so I may need to add in a layer here and there. But the end of the book is very close, now. In fact, I'll probably write at least the first part of the big climactic scene tonight.

I can hardly believe it's almost done. I started this book last March. Sheesh, that's nine months. Congratulations, folks, it's a book. For a moment there, it seemed as though that took a little longer than I'd planned, but then I remembered that during the same time I started Beyond the Pale, I was still writing Shifts of Perception. I only got to write on Pale a little bit here and a little bit there for roughly the first six months, until I finally just caved and told Bob I was going to set Shifts aside for a while to finish Pale. Now we'll see whether the switch to urban fantasy paid off.
