As mentioned in the previous Volume Seven Status Update from a month ago, I am in the final polishing stage, which is where I read the manuscript over and over again until my eyes bleed before turning it in for a line edit.
I'm feeling pretty good about where things are at. I've plugged plot holes and generally tightened up the overall story while also trimming excess words and shortening run-on sentences. Still, though, I want to devote most of my focus and energy to completing these final checks, so I'm just going to stop this blog post here.
P.S. That is, after telling you that the cover art is also coming along nicely!
P.P.S. Don't be surprised if next week's blog post is just a cat haiku
