In spite of what the meter says, the book is not finished. I'm not sure how far over 70000 words it'll go, but I'll keep updating and will let you guys know when I've reached the end and am beginning edits.
Also...I wrote the first chapter of the new series last night. I'm still feeling it out, but I have hopes for it. When I'm farther into it I'll give more details and post some excerpts.
