"Normalcy" coming to a close

"Normalcy Is Harder Than It Looks" is finally coming to a close. I'll be posting two more chapters, with an extra epilogue thrown in on Thursday.

"Normalcy" was the longest of the entire Catalyst series, and while the story covered a LOT of territory, after a while you need some change.

Book 4, "Racing the Clock", follows Alex as he sets off to find as many followers as he can. Luckily, it's a shorter book, dealing with a specific period of his travels. Book 5, which is longer, deals with separate topics and deserved a separate volume.

Anyway, I hope you've enjoyed the tale and will enjoy the conclusion. I know I'm eager to hear everyone's reaction to it, either positive or negative.

I think I'll take a week off between books, just to clear my mind. I also need to review Book 4, since I didn't make that many changes in the story when I cleaned it up for publishing, and I'll need to determine just how much of a 'rewrite' I'll need to do as I go along. If it needs a lot of work, it may take longer for me to post it.

Anyway, let me know what you think of the story and how I wrap it up. I'm always eager to get helpful suggestions and critiques, even if I have to pry the explanations out of my readers when I don't quite understand them.

Hope everyone had a tremendous holiday and spent some time (either good or bad) with their families.
