This time last year I had every expectation of publishing in the spring of 2016, and the writing over Christmas 2015 went really well.
But 2016 has proven a very busy year -- those of you who know me outside of the board will be aware of my obligations (family / work / church) and these parts of my life have demanded much of my time since the year began, hence the delay.
The book is divided into three parts: part one (major section) is complete and typeset; part two (another major section) is almost complete and will be ready to be proofread in January; part three (a small section) is being written and I hope to finish it early in the New Year.
I've lived with this story for over six years and my editor (a Mr Gordon Minto) tells me the work he's looked at so far is unique, fascinating and a damn good read.
Although part of the story has already crept out (and that was painful, believe me) the full story (Axton, Durden, Parker, Killen, et al) puts the song and the story in a whole new context, and the support I received from this board at the time of the leak moved me to tears, I can assure you.
A note I recently saw said, "If you can't be the first, be the best" and this is my intention: it'll be worth the wait.
Thank you for your patience and your support. Clarence nailed it: "No man is a failure who has friends."
Happy Christmas and God bless us, everyone.
