When I said Chapter 43 would be a few days late, I may have been to optimistic. It's taking some time to get through editing. The upside of several editors is fairly clean text, the downside is it takes time. And with my writing even more so (those of you who say an unedited chapter get posted know what I'm talking about). There will be a chapter next Sat (chapter 43), and I am dedicating a chunk of time this week to try and get Chapters 44 and 45 written and into the editing process before then.
On the upside, 38 of the 42 chapters currently out are getting an update today with additional editing.
And a note for the future. Book 1 is set to end at chapter 52. I will be taking a few weeks break between the end of book 1 and the first posting of book 2 to try and get some buffer content ready. But book 2 is fully outlined and plotted, so it is definitely coming your way after book 1 finished.
