The next Jacob/Beth story is being written. Current word count is 3105. Progress will go faster once I get to the pre-written material I have to edit (part of a previous incarnation of their book with a slightly different plot).
There will be a pause to read the next Dresden Files book as soon as I get my hands on it (offical release Tuesday). I've already read Jim's 5 sample chapters and OMG - so jealous of the fans at Comic Con this weekend that got to buy the book early. I know at least 2 people in the UK that got their book from Amazon already, grrrrr. If you have Ghost Story, don't spoil me! I'll have to thwap you.
On a sad note, Borders is being liquidated. Are you losing your local bookstore? Mine closed a few months ago when they were getting rid of the underperforming stores. It was nice to have one within walking distance for me, but oh well....stuck with the B&N across from the mall now.
