My latest in-progress novel, "The Menagerie II" is continuing to move forward. I'm presently working on Chapter 14, which is around two thirds of the way through the book, based on the previous book, "The Menagerie".
In this sequel, it is the end of 1982 and the start of 1983. Pretty much the same characters are in this book but they have developed more as would be the case for anyone in real life. There are, however, some new characters who have been added that readers should find interesting as well as some career changes and advances for others.
This is still a stand-alone novel, but I did make an extra effort to create character ties to the original story.
