Finally, an update.

Eight million BILLION years later…
The problem with being self-published is that when things go off the rails, things REALLY go off the rails. Life smacked us about the head and shoulders pretty good. Serves me right for speculating about things like… oh, say… getting the book out earlier than anticipated? Last time I’ll do THAT.
I apologize for the lack of updates; I really have no one to blame but myself, in the end. The good news is that these books are toxic sludge monsters that refuse to die, and while life derailed our publication dates, it certainly didn’t derail the story. I’m starting to think that, once it’s over, I’ll literally just detonate on the spot, because whatever is channeling these things through me will have no further use for me. At least, that’s what the brain gnomes are telling me. Nasty little jerks.
Ahem! So… here’s where we are:
1. Final edits (mostly persnickety cleanup) are finished.
2. We are still working on layout. 99% of it is fine, but there are a few little extras that need to be sorted before we’re ready to publish.
3. Final touches on the cover are nearly complete.
4. Book 3 is… progressing in a way I hadn’t anticipated. Not sure if that’s a good thing, or a bad thing…
I appreciate all of you, and again, I sincerely apologize for the months of radio silence. I’m not giving up, though, and I hope you won’t, either.
Next: An actual publication date. (Hopefully it’ll be just in time for my birthday?)
