At long, long (long) last, I'm pretty much (almost) done working on The Seventh Chakra.
I finished up the layout today (a grueling and not very fun process which took me about ten straight hours), and now that that's done, the guts that go into the book itself are just about ready to get sent off to the printer's.
There are a few more things I need to do, like write my epigraphs and stuff, but that's simple. The novel itself is pretty much done, now, and oh, god, that is the biggest relief ever.
According to my notes, I began writing this book in early March, 2007. That's over two and a half years of trying to get this puppy done and finished.
My hope is that the work will have been worth it, and that folks will enjoy the end result.
