HATCHES
CHOIR then noticed just after time the related CHORAL
Louise's way
COAST
MAIMS
8*100-(5*3)=785
LAZING (presumably not to many alternatives?)
6*(7-1)*25-9=891
x DEVIATION (phantom I)

I'm afraid that's too many H's in your round one answer, Mike. Indeed, not too many alternatives for round 7 -- AILING and GENIAL are by far the most common (I've not checked the validity of others yet). Nice solution to round 8!
