A number of people have asked me, "What’s up? Why haven’t we gotten new chapters in a while?" Thanks for caring and apologies for being so slow. I’ve been doing a bit of rewriting. Okay. LOTS of rewriting.
For those of you reading along as I edit, I've moved things around to make it easier for you to find the new chapters. The first section on the page says Chapter 1, but it's really 1-8. In the box that used to be Chapter 2, you'll find 9-11. More to come soon....
Thanks so much for your support. Please don't be shy about letting me know what you like, what you're looking forward to, etc.
I've posted Chapter 8, which may give you a bit of deja-vu. Faith A, who wrote the delightful "A Cup for the Dead" (first chapter on Inkshares!), had some great suggestions for cuts and rewrites to Chapter 2 -- which I did, as well as move a paragraph from there to Chapter 8. So if you run into it, it's not a repeat. It's a relo.
Thanks for reading.
For hardcore readers only: I've made some changes to chapter 2. The story remains the same, but there are fewer flashbacks and a longer introduction to Phin. Thanks for the feedback. Anne
Really enjoying the story and can't wait to see when you go into the funding stage!
