Next three weeks  
Right. I think I've got the rough drarft done. I'll snippet the rest of it this week.

_Then_ I am going to Taiwan for my younger son's big traditional Chinese wedding dinner. And touristy stuff. I doubt I'll be posting at all. May or may not even be writing. Given the itenerary my son has suggested, I won't have time.

So, I'll put _On The Run_, _God of the Sun_, and _Cannibal World_ up on Google docs and you guys can have at them.

I'll be back Nov 2nd. And write like mad to catch up on NaNoWriMo. Umm, scratch that. With a 15 hour flight, I'll probably be well started on NaNo. Assuming the laptop battery holds up or there's power aboard.

Enjoy your vacation!
and forget about the writing, unless you get bored.

Everybody needs a break, occasionally. I very much appreciate what you have created, but if your next books come out marginally later, it won't bother me at all.

Enjoy Taiwan! I have never been there, so I am jealous.

The writing will wait. Your loyal readers will also wait :).

Off subject question
What are the chances of seeing a more finished version of Black Point Clan anytime soon? I just re-read the rough snippets and was simply blown away by the complexity of the story, and it really does need to be told before we get to far into the rest of the Directorate series.

But I guess Cannibal World does come first doesn't it.

It's going to be awhile.

_Cannibal World_ (suggestions for new name welcome!) needs a hideous amount of work. And I need it done before _Trouble in Paradise_ the Directorate #3--their senior year--for plot purposes. Then I've got the three directorate stories that I'll probably do as a collection. They're pretty much done, so I'll put them out right after.

Then they finally get to trash the Cannibals. Needs lots of work.

Then I can finally publish _Black Point Clan_. With continuity problems fixed. I really can't do it earlier, Ajha's too busy to be an Alternate Philosopher until then.

So of course I just had to open it up and take a peek . . .

_Shadow Zone_ might work.
