Got through this series of nitpicky updates on Pearl of Fire, finally. Now I have… about 4 pages of “want to make sure this is foreshadowed properly” to get in. Once that is done, it’ll be “start book formatting” time!

“I can hear something,” Eric muttered. “But that static… wait. Are you talking to a ghost?”

(Oh right. Something about punching out a raven-mocker about to eat your liver….)
Have hit a total of 5 K on Tell No Tales so far this morning. *Thud* Going to try for more this evening, because getting ahead of daily wordcount is the only way to handle the inevitable Emergency that will arise.
