Yes, there is good news this week!

Have gotten Chapter 5 of the revised ALPHA, BOOK 2: WAYWARD SON back from my friendly neighborhood beta/proofreader Nancy A. Hansen, and she has Chapter 6 to review.

Chapter 7 is ready to send her after I get Chapter 6 back, and I'm working on Chapter 8 now.

But for those of you who think this just puts me where I left off before hitting the snag and the supporting cast problems that forced me to start over, I want to humbly tell everyone that is incorrect.

While going back over the last edition of the manuscript and salvaging all the original material I could, I have been also revising and adding scenes where needed.

This means that Chapter 8 to me is actually about Chapter 5 in the previous version, so at the current rate, somewhere between Chapters 11 and 12 I will be reaching the need for all new material to pick up where I left off before the rewrite began to finish the novel.

What this means to you, the readers, is that I will be presenting the publisher a much tighter, more action packed and dramatic story when I do submit the novel.

While I can guarantee that ALPHA, BOOK 2 WILL be finished in 2014, unfortunately I cannot guarantee that it will be published in 2014, and for that you have my most sincerest apologies. Yet, as I have said before, besides preferring quality over quantity, I want this manuscript to be the best I can humanly make it, for the groundwork I do in this novel will establish the foundation for Alpha series from this point onward.

Better get back to work now.
See you around the Internet.
