After having owned and raised chickens I should know this by now and yet I offered a release date before editing was not only not finished but basically just started. So I know find myself with the task of explaining that the release date of Balance of the Rose has been delayed.
I should have blogged, "It is complete and it is in editing. When it is done I will start posting."
I promise that the story is better having gone through the process of being polished. I don't have a time line for its completion but it will be and then I'll start posting.
