I got a response from my genetics professor quicker than I thought I would. I did not know how long it would take him to read my book, but I finally got a reply with his opinion of it. It looks as if he did not find any specific problems with Transmogrified, so I am thinking of publishing the novel in a couple of months. I think sometime mid-February (2017) would be good. I figure that by then, more people should be able to afford to purchase a book for themselves after spending so much over the holidays (Christmas, especially).
