Trolley is almost ready for beta readers. I have done the beta-preparing edits, and now it’s just combing through the chapters with a spellchecker and some rudimentary grammar checking (which does catch some issues, but probably not nearly enough).

If you have signed up to be a beta reader with me, you’ll be hearing from me in the next couple of days. I am drafting an instruction letter.

It’s at about 109k words. Depending on what edit, it could cross 110k, or drop down to about 100k, but I was right on target.
