As noted before plans are for two books in 2020. Did get some traction on the Blue Mountain story but discovered the need to recreate the very first character I tried to develop which will also create a need to change the story.
On what is now CMD 6019, I have not even attempted a beginning, actually did write one sentence. Plans now to finish draft of Blue Mountain story by end of March then go full bore on the Arab-Jewish/Muslim-Christian-Jewish story. Fiction but historic and cultural background requires a great deal of research. The first two books also required a great deal of research, but the third will be even more challenging. Still determined to write it.
