"Let's do the time warp again!"—The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year!

GOOD writing takes time!
Chapter 18, Take 3 of ALPHA, BOOK 2: WAYWARD SON is still with my friendly neighborhood beta/proofreader. Nancy Hansen promises me that I will have it back sometime in the early part of this coming week. Meanwhile, she is spending the weekend canning vegetables for winter.

Not sure why they call it "canning", since she's putting everything in jars, but anyway...

I do have the first draft to Chapter 19, the FINAL chapter of the manuscript almost finished, but want to wait and see what my F.N.B/P thinks of 18, so if I have to make any revisions that might affect 19...

Therefore, I have spent the last couple of days working on one of the two short stories that I actually committed to in 2015.

Not that I haven't written a few already this year.
One of them has even already been published!
FRIENDLY REMINDER: it was "The Sound of Obedience" in the second GHOST BOY anthology, available in print and e-book formats from Airship 27.

Thankfully neither of my two original commitments have an actual deadline.
While I still owe Airship 27 a Sherlock Holmes mystery, the one I'm working on at the moment is my first foray into comedic adventure (think The Princess Bride), that unfortunately I can't say much more about right now.

It has proven a blast to write, and I'm only on page 5 of that manuscript.
But I will be going back to ALPHA as soon as I get Chapter 18 back.
Still believe that I will have the manuscript done and submitted to the publisher by Thanksgiving for a 2016 release date.
If not, definitely BEFORE Christmas!

In the meantime. I better get back to writing.
Take care, and see you around the Internet.
