Changes to "The Catalyst"

Now that I'm getting closer, I've got news about what's happening with my "The Catalyst" series. Due to space limits here, I'll post details on my Discussion Group, found at:

groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/the-catalyst-discussion-group

The rewrite of the first book is turning out to be more extensive than I'd first thought. Here's the breakdown on the stories in the(revised) "Catalyst" series:

1) An Unknown Attraction - New Title! (Major rewrite - progressing nicely)

2) Trying To Be Normal (Split into 2 books - little actual changes)

3) Normalcy Is Harder Than It Looks (few actual revisions)

4) Racing The Clock

5) Touring Under Pressure

6) Building a Legacy (First draft almost completed--after extensive delays)


I'm planning to release the first book shortly after "Grappling" finishes (crossing my fingers!). I'll post "An Unknown Attraction" at my standard one chapter/month (just to give me time for work on the other books). After that, Books 2 & 3 will remain largely unchanged, so I'll post that two chapters each week (Tues/Thurs). I'll decide whether to rewrite Books 4 & 5 (which I'd like to 'clean up', but it depends upon the response to Book 1 (if there's enough continued interest in the story to warrant it). Unless I get involved in another major rewrite (instead of merely cutting out major segments), I plan to continue twice a week postings.

That will give me time to finish, revise and clean up Book 6 (the one you've all been waiting for). And I'll dedicate the time it takes to post that one to write "Great Death 3".
