All 1st Drafts of ProMySQL are Complete

Tonight I sent off the last 1st draft for the MySQL book I'm co-authoring, ProMySQL. That's not to say the work is done, most of my 1st drafts are already back in my inbox and waiting for attention to the comments from the techincal editor, editor and project manager. I've turned in four chapter 2nd drafts so far, seven more to go and then we get into the copy editing round where we less about the technical and more about the use of the English language. After that there's the round of layout approval and feedback and then I think we're close.

Needless to say, I'm spending all of my free time (except a little bit for food, family and selling our house) working on this.
