You hopefully be glad to hear work has begun in earnest!
I’ve begun pulling all the fragments written so far into some kind of order, and I’m now establishing the basic timeline for the story. I’ve done a second pass/edit already, with a view to getting proof reading underway early.
I’m aiming for a similar length to Book 1, so around 140,000 words. It’s a long way from complete, but its well underway. I think your going to like what’s going to happen in Book Two… 🙂
