I talked to the publisher and he said that, if nothing goes wrong, then the second devil's panties book will be out in two months.
I've given up anticipating it. I'll just be pleasantly surprised if it ever does come out.
Steps are being taken to set up my own self publishing company so that I will know what's going on and have control over the situation. Even if it's just knowing that the truck broke down or the boat sank. At least I'll have an answer for people when they ask "Where's the next book?" instead of answering "That's a great question. If you find out, could you let me know?"
