Chirogeoff - the pre-meltdown manuscript count was 1086. (manuscript pages do not correlate to print pages; they condense by about 1/3 when typeset).
I don't know what the count is now; I won't consecutively number the files until the final day; and I haven't totted up what the melt down edit did, yet.
It won't be a short book, if you are concerned about that.
Not concerned in the least thanks Janny. Just curious. Thanks again.
So excited! Currently involved in re-read of Traitor's Knot. One of my favourites of the series together with CotM. Next is Stormed Fortress which I am particularly looking forward to as I have only read it once so far.
It will certainly be great to get a publishing date so I can make a big note on my calendar!
And Janny, the bigger the book the better.
Greedy, greedy me!!
All of Ch 1 set is in proofing; Ch 2 set will be, very shortly.
