I am currently revising the second volume of my Waldmann-Family-Saga and -as a Christmas present- I already translated part of the first chapter. My friend Anke Waldmann who does a large part of the research, put it up both in German and English in her Advent-Calendar. If you want to read a sample check it out.
It will take me at least till march to finish the revision because I am also writing another YA Fantasy-novel that needs to be done by mid-January. Luckily there isn't much left to the first draft (only the show-down and that usually writes itself). And with the one-pass-revision I learned in Holly Lisles "How to Think Sideways" I'll get it done in time.
I hope you'll all make it to 2009 save and sound,
