The whole thing is up. Novel complete at 50,996 per the official validator.
I'm not sure the old links will work, so here's an updated link as I renamed the bugger a little hoping to make sure it got into the $2,000 drawing over on wattpad, which is why the novel now has the nanowrimo13 at the end of the title.
Book One: Cybersp@ce

When the world approaches the brink of World War III, however, he comes to realize that he must find whatever means he can, however unorthodox, to prevent a massive cyber attack that will cripple the United States, and trigger an apocalypse.

This year I'm joining the scrum, I guess.
So, should you like to read the progress so far, here's the link.
Expect sporadic updates, I'm going to try to keep updates to once or twice a week.

Hoping I can get closer to "par" over the weekend, though getting distracted by setting up on Wattpad hasn't helped.

Other than that, as story gossip, I've picked up Burnout from last year (I

Recently I published my first book called Fourteen Shades of Horror - a collection of fourteen short horror stories available from Amazon for download only on to a Kindle, Tablet or Smartphone.
