Not much to report. Book 08 (Part I) is coming along at about 2-3 pages per day. Its form is pretty much set. It should be ready to be on-line sometime between Labor Day and Thanksgiving, barring additional life setbacks. The way it has evolved puts Eliza Change at center stage, and I get to explore her character in the way I wanted to in Book 07.
The story is locked and loaded. What has to happen now is to make the dialog work, and try to bring out the personality quirks in the lead characters... particularly Eliza Change.
