I'm up to two GINORMOUS Pickle Jars worth of change now.....and Im re-reading Book 1.
BTW... how did you make out, out there in the springs? I have heard from friends out there that Black Forrest is a Blackened Desert now.
Hahaha... You must REALLY be getting pickled.
It has been nearly 26 months since I submitted the fixed Book 1 manuscript to the potential new publisher. They notified me last August that they had selected it from the pile -- they average 800 submissions per month -- for closer scrutiny and further examination and discussion. But, there were some submissions in line ahead of mine. So, I continue to wait patiently, which is what I should have done the first time years ago.
In the meantime, MUCH of Book 2 is finished.
WHEN the new publisher notifies me that they ARE going to republish Book 1, it will be another year before it arrives on the shelves. I will take that year to complete Book 2.
