You guys deserve more status updates than I’m actually giving you

I know some of you still check in to see if there's something new. At least that's what the site stats tell me. So I figure I should let you know that things are still progressing, albeit slowly. So here's the current status of the upcoming four chapters (as it's when those are done I'll start publishing again - these will be updated when anything meaningful happens):

Chapter 040: Done!
Chapter 041: Proofreading done, editing mostly done, only thing left is final touchups.
Chapter 042: About 70% written.
Chapter 043: Something like 5% written, depending on final length.
