It's done.

At least, it's as done as it's going to be as I wait on pins and needles for first reader responses that hopefully don't say "What are you thinking?? That's not an ending!" (Okay, got one response that approved. Whew!)

Final tally:

397 pages (double spaced)

Draft One of Nemesis, aka "telepathic space pirates", aka Rhien's space opera, is finished. Beta request post is here.

The usual suspects may assume they are already betas. :D E-mail for beta-ing should go out this afternoon, with instructions/comments on what I'm looking for, feedback wise.

I am...I don't know. Too many things going on at once.

Thank you. :D I am happy, but also drained and kind of sad. It's weird.

I mean, I have book 2 planned, so it's not like I'm saying good-bye to these characters forever.

I think mostly I am just glad to type THE END, and I'm actually looking forward to editing. Which...very odd.

Congrats! I wish I could read it, but with school and my own critiques to do, I may not have time. Best of luck with the next stage!
