    6 stories are in the Ebook Prototype already, another few submissions should arrive me by tomorrow (real life bringing about delays). I don't mind, as I'm busy watching E3 anyway.

    I'm very excited to get reading, and am proud to say that this time I've got a story of my own in there as well.
    If I can pull off reading and editing during E3 downtimes, I hope to get the preview shots out to the participants by the weekend. Wish me luck.

    I would just like to say, good job everyone, hopefully this one is going to be full of surprises and high quality stories, and good luck in advance for it.

    It is a shame some people didn't enter, some had to withdraw as well, but in the end, this has been a fun project for myself, and I am looking forward to viewing everyone's stories.

    I have only read @Rinneko's story so far, but holy cow, please look forward to it.
    She's done something very exciting here, and I can't wait to see how you'll react to it!
    It kinda looks like Rinne's already found a niche for herself, and she does very well within it.

    Nine stories. That's pretty nice. And way more than I really expected. Though, will take quite some time to read, I guess. Considering the genre, I think most stories should be quite big.

    The whole PDF, with page numbers, index, everything, is 47k words total. 105 pages in the PDF. A good batch, really. Most stories are between 3 and 4k words, with Frey and me being around the maximum 7500, and some stories set in-between.

    I'll now be closing this thread.

    The participants have received their copies of the ebook already.
    The public release will be done, as before, with a separate thread.
    The thread will be live tomorrow, Friday 13th. Look forward to it!
