I have finished the revision of The Castle of Heavenly and posted it on Smashwords here. I will post it on Amazon shortly.
The intensive style and text revision was for a new paperback edition. Except for a small but important adjustment to the character of Estella in the final chapters and additional material to bring the story more into line with In This Vale of Tears, there has been no change to the story. The minor adjustment to Estella aimed to bring out character traits established in the previous chapters whose consequences did not emerge clearly enough in those final chapters. Because most of the story takes place in 1975, I expanded the background of the vast social and political changes of the 1960s. This background is indispensable for the story. Otherwise, I trimmed the text and corrected faults of style as pointed out by reviewers and readers who were otherwise generous in their praise. I am confident the revisions present a far more polished and consistent story leading into In This Vale of Tears, the second book in what will now be at least a three-part series.
