Tenacious Tiger Progress

The last five days have been notably productive working on my second Balmain Tigers book. I'm getting close to finishing the first draft and I'm eager to refer it to editing within a week. I've stayed up late a couple of nights, but seeing the book grow at a brisker pace has been worth missing some sleep for.

Balmain Tigers Book Number One Back Cover Description

Back Cover Description 

In 1999 the Super League war was supposedly over, yet the peace treaty and unification of rugby league was far from complete, as the seventeen-club National Rugby League (NRL) competition still had to be reduced to fourteen clubs by the year 2000.

The 1908 foundation club Balmain Tigers had been potent over many decades, yet the 1990s was perhaps one of their most challenging periods. Some might have seen them as easy prey to be culled to make way for the fourteen-club competition, but Balmain was a proud club, and while they were not the most winning of teams, they were still one of the most determined. 

Balmain would decide its own future in 1999, and the direction they chose was different from the past. The players that took the field for them in 1999 would be the last to do so at the NRL level. They were a unique group of characters with varying experience, and it was they who took the last steps as NRL Balmain Tigers. Their story comprises the final year of Balmain’s ninety-two seasons. 

With exclusive insights from the coach, players, and the club’s chief executive officer, Balmain’s last season is explored with details from those who were there, and author Nicholas Henning assesses and pays tribute to the final season of one of rugby league’s most admired clubs.

Balmain Tigers Book Number One Editorial Feedback

Normally, I wouldn't share editorial feedback for a book that is still in draft stage, but I'm prepared to take a chance with my two Balmain Tigers books. The titles of both books, though, will remain secret for now. The editorial stage is a key juncture of the process and it's always exciting to receive feedback.
Please refer to the below for an overall comment from the editor regarding book number one.
"This book contains a lot of insight into and interesting anecdotes about the last season of the Balmain Tigers, which fans of the club will really appreciate, along with the nostalgia of hearing the perspectives of former players and coaches."

November Balmain Tigers Book Writing Update

My Balmain Tigers books are making progress with one manuscript in for editing, and I need to draft the final chapter and epilogue for the other. I should receive back the edited manuscript within a week, and it will take at least six weeks before the second work can be submitted for editing. It's a long process but I'm getting there.
