Ishta’s Companion/Relics of War: Progress Report Fifteen

Chapter Fifteen has finally put in an appearance.

Chapter Sixteen is written, as donors should know — I’ve been e-mailing chapters to donors as soon as they’re ready, rather than making them wait for the postings. Chapter Seventeen ran into Thanksgiving and other delays, and is still less than half written. I’m now estimating that the novel will run about twenty chapters, but that could still be off a couple of chapters either way.

I’m going to finish the novel, and Wildside intends to publish it, regardless of what happens to the serialization.

Thanks to a “clever” spammer, as of last night no e-mail from my ISP is getting through to Hotmail addresses — or certain other domains, but I’m not sure exactly which. At least one is in Australia. If you think you should have received a notice of some sort from me and you haven’t, that’s probably why. We’re working on getting it fixed.

I think that’s it for now. Happy holidays!
