You don't understand - he HAS written most of Vol. 2 already. He doesn't just have a bunch of research notes laying around. It is all on a computer and backed up on an exterior hard drive. I personally spoke to him about it in Aug. 2019 in Chicago at the Fest For Beatles Fans. As he finds out something new or confirms something, he just goes back in and adds it.
I'm quite surprised by that because judging by the way Vol 1 flowed in its narrative, I didn't get the impression that Mark was constantly adding bits in as he discovered more information. From what he told you, he must be constantly deleting whole chunks of writing everytime he finds something new that contradicts what he's already written? That's a strange way to write a book.
Not necessarily - it consists more of ADDING things rather than deleting/changing things. He doesn't write anything unless he knows it is true, and if there's any doubt about it, he mentions that there is. (like if there are contradictory stories about something)
