    Hi Peg

    Yes. The release has been delayed due to several incidents. A system crash wiped out close to 40 pages and the USB device with the backup failed. That set me back a couple of weeks. Also, Sony Music have dragged on release permissions. I may need to go back and rewrite a part if the permissions do not come through in the next little while. Fortunately I had another almost complete backup so the recovery wasn't too bad.

    I also experienced some delays getting research info from the US Coast Guard with respect to the drug intercept patrols at the time in which the book is set. Similarly getting certain info from Venezuela took longer.

    Hope it will all be worth it in the end.

    Book should be out in early/mid January. The beta readers have returned positive comments so far.

    Thanks John! I had been watching for it and checking Amazon. Coming from a publishing background, I know what those permission releases are like. Hope you don’t have to do a rewrite! Will look forward to reading it towards the end of January!
