I'm alive and I can emerge from my hidey-hole of Must Finishdom where I've been hiding since mid-April in my never-say-die effort to get this draft done with so I can move on to other projects. And finally, I am done! Wooo!

The first draft of Soul Machines (the Vampire Novel o' Doom) is now officially complete. It's overdue and overweight, but at least it's OVER!

It stands at 186,513 words (by Open Office's account), but I think I should get points because I finished it on vacation with a case of swimmer's ear so bad that the doctor gave me darvocet for the pain and two different kinds of ear drops.

Yeah, that's hardcore.

So I'm going to enjoy a couple days of relaxing and letting my brain blank out before I a) start a new job and b) start a new project.

Oh, and if you've been wondering why I've been absent from the world for a while, it's because I've been finishing a novel, taking an epic road trip home to Tennessee (guess what, we arrived just in time for the flooding in my home town of Jackson - an hour and a half outside Nashville) and then flying to Florida and then getting a new job (which I start on the 20th) and generally being busy.

Now, once my life finally reaches cruising altitude again, I can get back to work on whatever is next. Which I think is either the Untitled Steampunk Extravaganza or the Hell!Romance thing or maybe finishing up the nanoproject, Bound for Canaan. IDK. It all depends.

For now, I'm going to get some victory sleep.
