I'm shelving the sequel for the moment. I've reached the point where a solid story is in place--plot and structure, character and thematic arcs are done. I know the whys and hows of it all. Close to five years, that took. But save for what you've read in the preview, the actual script is far from finished. I need to rest. I need to try something new.
I will go back to the sequel, yes. But its time of completion is anybody's guess, and it would be prudent not to wait. I apologize.
