I purchased the MEAP option and have enjoyed the initial chapters of your book, but there have been no additional chapters for months. When will the book be completed?

Predicting the completion of a book is tricky business.

I was supposed to have finished the writing phase in October. Clearly that didn't happen.

My new goal is to finish the writing phase by the end of March. I think that's do-able, but it requires me to stay *VERY* focused. If I do finish by the end of March then it should be on the shelf mid-summer.

Short status: I have 3-4 chapters left to complete. That sounds like a lot, but those are the chapters that haven't changed dramatically since SiA2...so they should go really fast.

Follow the book's Twitter account (@springinaction) and I'll keep the status posted there as I finish chapters.
