I had planned to have Vol 1 published two weeks ago. Everything is done but the final copy edit. My wife is doing this for me, she is a high school English teacher and much better at copy editing than I am. Unfortunately week before last the bug she caught from the students after thanksgiving reasserted itself as a sinus infection so she was unable to work on it that week, and last week we both had food poisoning on Monday and Tuesday, so she was not up to it then either. Finally Thursday and Friday, I had a kidney stone attack, had to go to the hospital and have laser surgery, She spent most of those days either with me in the hospital or running back and forth to our house to take care of things there. To make a long story short, oops too late, within two days of her finishing, I will have the corrections made and it will be available. That is provided, Lemony Snicket has nothing else planned for us.
