Wow, Minnow, that is so cool. That you think that the join is done well, and that the book is nearly complete... I really wasn't counting on ever having another DWJ book to read and the fact that I will, no matter how long it might take to get published, is cause for celebration indeed!

I think "Freaky Families" must be another collection of previously-published work, like "Vile Visitors".
The new book is pretty-much finished, I have read it in near-final draft, and I am awaiting with interest people saying that they know where she put down her pen! (I do because I read the manuscript as she left it, needing to be deciphered and typed out, but the join is pretty well-done *I* think.)
The working title was "Islands", but whether it will stay thus named I don't know.
It has nothing whatever to do with Castle or Howl; it is a stand-alone about an archipelago of four islands.
When it will actually be published I don't know either. That is a process which can take longer or less time depending on so many factors that it won't be worth second-guessing.
I hope that may be some use.
