This is where it tentatively stands. And all is still not settled. I am very grateful to my patient and long suffering editors right now.
The final manuscript was over 1000 pages. So, I regret to say, the book will have to be broken into two volumes. I feel very bad about this, as I told readers it would be a single-volume, stand alone book. The story simply got out of hand.
At this point, the two volumes would be published less than a year apart.
I don’t have a lot of specifics that I can share right now, but thought an update was owed!
Right now, the first 500 pages is getting a serious makeover, with an eye to providing a somewhat satisfying ending to the first half of the book.
Thanks for your patience
