Chapter 24 is up.
As I said two posts back, I’m no longer waiting for specific days or times — when enough money comes in, the chapter goes up, which is why I’m posting this before midnight.
I have $65 toward Chapter Twenty-Five. Another $935 will complete the novel. The first draft is entirely written.
And speaking of first drafts, you’ll notice there’s a note in this chapter about that; that obviously won’t be in the final draft.
I don’t think it comes up in this chapter, but there’s also a correction that’s been made to the manuscript but not the chapters I’d already posted — the Empire of Vond has eighteen provinces, not seventeen. I’d miscounted because I was working from a list of the countries Semma annexed, and it didn’t include Semma itself. D’oh.
