Update - 6/20/2016
So I've been quite busy!

I've hired an editor for book one and I've made my substantive revisions through chapter 10.  We are making steady progress.

My detailed outline for book two is mostly complete and I've begun writing the prologue.  There will probably be some things I need to change or flesh out, but hopefully this will make the writing process a bit faster.  

I expect it is going to take me a while to write book two since I'm still editing book one, but at least I've started!
