Thanks for asking about the timing of the next chapter and encouraging me. Yes, the next chapter is with the last editor in my editorial chain.
Again, I want to thank my helpers for all they do.
Christmas season was busy for all of us, including our hard working editors. A number of chapters for Fearless are in the editorial pipeline, so I spent the weekend writing an unrelated short story.
Unlike the weekly scheduled chapter releases for Fearless, I will release this story as soon as it is edited. I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts on the new story, after you get a chance to read it. It's only about 13 pages long.
Thank you for all your e-mails. Von has returned in his third story, which I plan on releasing a chapter each week (as long as I can keep ahead of the editors). Thus far I have twelve chapters ready and edited. I particularly appreciate those readers that notice a word usage error and take the time to point it out, so I can correct it. Again, thank you for your support and encouraging words.
Storytelling is fun, but editing isn't. I Soooo appreciate the hours all the editors have taken to assist with the story, they are my heroes. All mistakes are mine.
Thank you for all your e-mails encouraging me to talk about the next story in the Castaway saga. I am writing it actively and the third story will be begin its release once I have twelve chapters in the bag. Currently, chapter six is with the finish editor, and I am eleven pages into chapter seven's rough draft.
Why is "12" chapters the magic number? First, I'd like to have a release schedule that is a chapter each week. Second, building in a delay stops me from rushing the quality of the story. Third, I am less likely to kick myself if I get further in the tale and wish I'd foreshadowed something or tuck a detail in that would help beef up a character or an experience.
I think about the story every day and often make quick notations or write bits of dialogue on a notepad while working and waiting for the company's server to clock while it processes some application; and other times I write some thoughts during lunch. In the end, I am enjoying learning how to write stories and Castaway is my primary training ground for more erotic works.
Thanks again for you continued interest and patience.
I have decided to add an additional pen name for new stories not in Von's universe, which will have no sex or minimal sex.
I want to thank all of you for all your supportive e-mails and your voting for Explorer (book 2 of Von's adventure). I am in the beginning stages of outlining and note taking for book three.
"Dragons and Coal Cinders" is my version of a fantasy, steampunk style story. It will be about six or seven chapters, so not very long. Once again, without Mr. Wolf, Derek and Erik as editors, I wouldn't be posting.
