This is a tedious process. I'm just about finished up with my second edit. It's coming along.

Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!

I love my R6, but...there's no buts...

At the start of my last chapter for my second red pen edit. It's tedious, but we're getting there.

Re: I'm 48,000 Words In...

This is just a teaser to hopefully wet your appetite.

"...Before anyone could release their clutch, all six helmets turned in unison to see what was approaching from around the bend. To their surprise, they saw a Ferrari 488 Pista, a Corvette ZR-1, a Lotus Exige, a Tesla Roadster, a BMW 1M, a Mazda RX-7, and a pro-touring 1967 Chevy II speeding around the twin north bound freshly paved lanes. The Ferrari and Corvette were leading the pack, while the Chevy II was calmly following the pack a few car lengths behind. As the cars exited the apex of the curve a few feet from where breakfast had just been eaten, the only thing that could be heard was the ear gratifying concerto coming from the steel and titanium exhaust pipes of those magnificently engineered machines. The soothing off pitched hum from the exhaust made the fluid in the six motorcyclists’ spinal cavities resonate sending a chilling yet soothing sensation throughout their bodies. The moment was so powerful and raw as the cars accelerated towards the exit marker, it made each person's body slightly pitch forward onto their toes in a slow climaxing gesture. The sound continued to carry on through the winding road as they moved away from the six motorcyclists.

What seemed like a millisecond later, small rocks and dust could be seen thrown into the air from the 200/55ZR17 Metzler Racetec RR mounted on the rear wheel of the Aprilia RSV4...."

Sounds amazing!!! Really awesome work and exciting finishing a book! I've started the process but my ADHD brain kicks in and I think of other projects I want to work on and start and I get all confused as to where to put my energy

Too much to do and too little time! I'd be interested in reading it when it comes out.

Thanks.

I'm in the final stretch of my second edit. It requires a lot of focus and dedication, and it's completely different from anything else I've ever accomplished. I'm sure it'll get some serious streamlining and smoothing on the third edit.

Interesting spin on the next installment of the 50 Shades series.

Yes, I am. I received the first chapter back from my new editor, and we're about to meet to discuss the rest of the project. The first chapter has been cleaned up a lot to make for a much better read as I'm not a professional writer. I'm still combing through it, but it's coming along.

Thanks for the follow-up. Oh, and I have some Beta-readers taking a dive into it as well. So far, I'm getting if anyone is a gear head or loves riding/action, they'll love it. Also, I've been told it builds up a lot of suspense in the first three chapters that makes readers want to continue reading it.
