It was just pointed out to me that I got the date wrong when I announced the beginning of book 8. Ordinary posting schedule would have it beginning on Tuesday, October 8, rather than Monday, October 7. I regret the error.
However! For the next two weeks, I'll be posting not twice a week but twice a day. That means that by the end of the month we should have nearly finished book 8, and then skipping my usual break between books to go straight into book 9. The idea is to bring in more readers and improve my ratings, so if you've been meaning to share this story with someone and putting it off, now would be a great time!
Thanks for reading, everyone!
