More News about Dahveed 5

Well, the complete plot overhaul is finally done.  It was well worth the time, since over 55,000 words have been cut from the manuscript!  However, the re-plot took twice as long as I imagined it would, and I now have to go over each scene and edit the details.  All of this is a prelude to breaking the news that the book may not be ready for print by Christmas 2013.  It is still possible, and I will do my best, but I'm not making any promises at this point!

The plot has been streamlined, and, taking my cue from one advance reader to "simplify, simplify, simplify," I have done my best to make the story much more straightforward.  I believe the result is a much better book.  After I get the editing done, we'll have to see what the advance readers think now.

As always, your prayers are appreciated!
