Honor Restored - Draft Complete

I have finished the first draft of Honor Restored: A Thomas Devareaux Alternative History Military Adventure. I will be sending this out to all of my Alternate History list subscribers once I have finished with the editing. This story follows immediately on the heels of The Last Airship to Khartoum. It resolved Lieutenant Alexander Almond's story line and was fun to write. I hope that it will be fun to read. I anticipate having this done and ready to mail out by May 15th. Watch your mailboxes. I am trying to get the cover sorted out for this project now.

I also made some progress on the first novel of my Sci Fi series. I have not come up with a name for it yet. But I do have at least three or four books in mind for this series plus a giveaway book from the series. I believe that I am about a 1/4th of the way through this one. Thus far, I am really enjoying working on this one.

But what about the third novel in the Devareaux series? Fear not. I have not abandoned it. I pushed it aside for the moment to work on the two above projects before returning to it. Devareaux, Stoe and the boys still have more adventures to go.

I am currently working on a short story for subscribers to my Alternative History list. So far the story is coming along well. I have broken the 10,000 word mark today. The working title is Honor Restored. It follows Lieutenant Alexander ALmond following the events of The Last Airship from Khartoum. The Third book in the Devareaux series has been started but I did not have a place to continue on Almond's story within it. So the idea for the short story to wrap up his unresolved issues at the end of the last story. I am working on this for Camp Nanowrimo and hope to get a draft complete by the end of the month if all goes well.
