It is my pleasure to report that I have, this evening, finished the first-draft manuscript of the final volume of the Star Trek Destiny trilogy, Lost Souls.
I still need to do a read-through and polishing draft, and it then it will need to go to my beta readers for seriously rushed comments and revisions so that I can turn this in before I leave for Mexico...
...but the manuscript is done, and I feel good about it.
It clocks in at 108k words, 490pp. I have been slogging away on this project for 16 months now, and there are still more months of copyediting, line editing, rewrites, and page proofs to come.
But at least all the fucking manuscripts finally exist. Hallelujah.
