More things happening with The Book of Drachma

This is kind of good news for friends and followers  of The Book of Drachma. The second book (Coaptation), is now complete, and back to the publisher. I anticipate that it will be available in around 4 - 6 weeks. It should then be released nationally/internationally about three months after that. This, to me, is good news, as sales of Laminar Flow (The Book of Drachma, Part One) seem to be stagnating. I believe that the second book will provide some of the necessary publishing momentum. I have seen the trailer that was produced for Laminar Flow (visible on my blog, a couple of posts in the past), but I haven't heard from the publisher just when, or on what networks it will be visible. Laminar Flow is available on and Barnes & Noble (

And now, I've made progress with the third book (Turbulence and Restoration). I have completed the demanding developmental editing, part one, and I've just gotten it back to the publisher. This took considerable effort, as I've had to trim some big sections, and have eliminated some of the redundancy. My own feeling is that the third book is still the best of the three, and now, in its leaner/meaner form. My only wish is that the publisher had required that my editor read the first two books, as it would have made all our tasks easier. Fortunately for me, I've had a regular commentator to keep me honest as I've written the book. So here's a big huge Thank You to Diego Green.

And so, here is the cover of Coaptation again!
