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.
Awesome! Ill definitely keep my eye on this thread and follow the journey

I'm not sure who's all interested, but the edits are progressing phenomenally. I'm setting a tentative deadline of this summer for publication. It's getting to be a more of a smooth read, and it's coming along. I got very little negative feedback, some neutral feedback, and some good/great feedback. I'm telling you, if you ride or just love to enjoy life, this book is for you.

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

Very small piece from my book:

The waiter gave a warm smile and walked away. The conversation at the table was centered around becoming more acquainted with the two new women joining the group. Continuing to drink and laugh while waiting for their food, Lines leaned over to his new woman.

He whispered to her, "do you want to dance?"

After the shot and a glass of champagne, she was feeling light and free like a silk scarf blowing on a windy Spring day. She leaned over in an attempt to make it look like she was whispering in his ear.

She said to him, “I’d love to” while licking on the edge of his ear.

The couple got up, and they walked over to a small area next to an unmanned piano. Their arms reached for one another, and they began to hold each other in dance position. As the music played in the background, Lines had a firm grip on her torso. It gave her the feeling of protection and comfort. The two of them began to move in unison to the music together. The smell of her perfume made Lines want to pick her up, put her on the piano, and push himself deep inside of her. However, he knew they were in a public place, and he had to maintain his composure. Simultaneously, the emotions she experienced made her feel light on her feet from his presence and his scent. She began to become more and more aroused, and she could feel her vagina getting wet. As the song came to an end, they began to separate. Those two received many smiles and soft applauds from onlookers in the restaurant.

Lines whispered in her ear, “tell the table I’m going to the bathroom.”

Getting ready to head to final proofing. Pre-orders are already on deck. Finishing up on the last of the content editing.

With 80,000 words, there's bound to be a mistake. It'll get taken care of with final proofing.
