Also, this is just the rough draft, so of course there will be editing, but: The Dogwatchers is long. 102,000 words, 368 pages. By far the longest thing I've ever written. Which is kind of cool. And I'm glad to note that middle-grade fantasy of this length is hardly unheard of these days.
So, in summary: WOO!
