Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to find the edited manuscript for PROJECT ALPHA, BOOK 2: WAYWARD SON in my in-box from my friendly neighborhood beta/proofreader Nancy Hansen.
Obviously, I've been working on that this past week.
IF (big word for just two letters) all goes well, I should be submitting it to Pro Se Press for eventual publication by the end of this week.
But Nancy must of REALLY liked the novel, because she posted this on Facebook:
"Today I finished editing Lee Houston Junior's next Alpha book. I have to say, this is one of the best stories I've read in a while. I'm not a big comic book fan but this book has everything a superhero geek enthusiast would love. It's filled with action and adventure, but it's also got heart. You find yourself sucked right into that tale and rooting for this guy as he battles everything that gets thrown at him—and there's plenty of that. So proud to have been able to play some part in getting this one out. I think anybody who loves a good adventure tale told well is going to enjoy it. Can't wait to see it in print!
Kudos to you Lee!"
Well, that's one happy fan. Hopefully the rest will be joining her when the book sees publication release.
All of this, and to greet the first day of Spring, freezing temperatures and a prediction of possibly up to 8 INCHES of snow by morning!
See you around the Internet.
Lee Houston, Junior
