Wow, have I been busy!

I have just now posted the next chapter in Extraordinary Part 2:  Chapter 11 - The Other Side of Joy - Is Fear.

Waking in Alex's arms should spell the start of a wonderful day for Cassie.  Well, this is Cassie we are talking about.  Trouble seems to follow her, and this day is no different.  What starts as a day of amazing dreams, and pure happiness, will soon lead to a frightening encounter, and some terrifying events.  

I've been a bit slack in posting the newer chapters, because I have been so busy completing my final edits and reposts of Extraordinary Part 1.  I'm almost halfway through.  I am surprised it's taking so long, but I guess now I'm down the itty-bitty-gritty details, that seem to take forever to complete.  I'm happy with the storyline, happy with the conversations lining up with the same conversations in The Secrets We Keep (which I am editing at the same time, so that when it releases it doesn't take nearly as long!), and I'm happy with the small details in the book.

When I say the itty-bitty-gritty details, I'm talking about sentence structure, and grammar, and placement of full-stops and commas and semi-colons.  I'm also formatting (which in itself is not too difficult) but it means keeping an eye on the number of spaces, ensuring there are no funny characters or funny formatting styles making an appearance in my ebook (Smashwords) manuscript.  Yes, it's really really boring, but someone's got to do it!

On the other hand, I've posted 3 re-edited chapters, plus a new one for Part 2, since Friday night.  I'm pretty happy with that.  If I keep this up, I'll have a ready-to-go manuscript by mid October.  I'm aiming for the end of October, so that means there are allowances for any issues.  

Now, its time for me to post yet another request for feedback.  If anyone has completed reading Part 1 (and yes I know its not the complete story, as Part 2 will finalise the story) I would really really appreciate getting some feedback, even if its to point out a misplaced comma!!  On the other hand, if you are not into giving detailed feedback, then feel free to use the comments form on the Comments Page, or the survey form/feedback form on the Extraordinary Part 1 Table of Contents Page.   There are only a couple of quick questions on the survey and I'd love to hear back from my readers.  And, as always, if you leave me a feedback comment, I will post it on the Comments page (unless you request otherwise, of course!)

Otherwise, those who are interested can "Follow" me on Twitter, or "Like" my Facebook Page... links to those pages are at the very top of every page on this site.

Hope to hear from you soon!
