I am extremely happy to report that Revelation (Kid Sensation #4) is finally finished! I still have to do my usual read-through (not to mention getting it to my editor) but the manuscript is done!
I can honestly say that this one has truly been a labor of love, as I have had to deal with a number of delays. One of the most prevalent of late has been the fact that my wife's computer, which she and our kids normally use for their work and projects, has been on the fritz for a while now. The result of that has been a detrimental effect on my output; basically, everyone has had to use the computer that I normally do my writing on to complete their regular activities. (There's not a whole lot you can do when your kid says, "Dad, I've got a project due tomorrow so I need to use the computer..." There's a lot more wiggle room in the writing schedule than there is in the deadline for school projects. Ergo, school takes precedence.)
That aside, I really want to stay in my thanks to everyone - readers, my editor, etc. - for the patience and understanding they've displayed. It is my hope that the next book won't take nearly as long. (Needless to say, one of the first things I'm going to do with any profits from the current book is to buy a dedicated computer for the wife and kiddies.)
