In other other news, the ToC for Chicks Dig Comic Books is out, and it's a doozy. I got paid to write about Warren Ellis!
I'm not actually done with the draft, but I've hit the point where warblogging it is too exhausting and after 72 hours of straight work, I've hit the end of my undivided concentration, so expect occasional progress bars and eventually a --30--.
I have one big setpiece anticlimax to write, and then I have the climax and denouement and inevitable destruction that attends the end of book two in a trilogy--which is, after all, the nadir or crisis point of a three-act structure narrative.

Still hoping to be done by the end of the week, giving me a week to polish and fuss before I have to hand it in.
