I am working to overcome my post hurricane malaise.

I have resumed writing, but in fits and starts. Ever since Irma ravaged Florida, I have felt a bit unsettled. We evacuated to Georgia, near Atlanta, and have long since returned and cleaned up trees and limbs. My only problem now is regaining focus and purpose. I feel it's returning and I have been working on my next chapter, along with a short western story for an invitational. I thank everyone for their patience and support and want very much to get a chapter out by month's end. Thanks!

In response to a suggestion, this is an update.

Summer has been very good to me. I had a nice 2 week vacation and have been spending time with family. As one ages, time becomes far more important than money and time with family is the best.

All of that said, I plan to diligently work on and complete my next chapter in LiR 3 within days and get it edited and out. Back to work for me. Thanks for the interest and the encouragement.

I have been asked about the future of Lena and Saint. Their adventures will be separate from this series, and involve incredible heroics, sacrifice, compassion, and will take place in a world far different than the one their parents know.

In the editor's hands.

I should be posting the next chapter of LiR this week. Once Tex sends the edited version back and I make the corrections, I'll post it. Thanks for your patience.

I am pretty far along on the next chapter

of LiR 3. Nobody wants to hear how busy a writer is or any other problems they may have. I understand that. One of my obstacles is that I have been borrowing a little from current events to help visualize problems a wealthy person in government could have while serving their country. I now have too much information and am trying to keep my story centered. I have no political agenda and am trying very hard to keep that fact obvious to my readers. My characters will be both liberal and conservative, depending on the topic. I do not want my characters to seem Republican or Democrat. I want something better for them! How about honest, intelligent people wanting to improve the nation and the world? Remember, this is fiction! Thanks for your patience.

Coaster2 said he has had 7 stories stolen.

I guess that can be considered a compliment. I sent the following email to Amazon. I hope to not bother you with any further tales of woe about this lying bastard called "Ronald Trumph".

Anne Tarpey,
If your employers had more integrity, you would remove all of this guy's stories. It is obvious that he has stolen all of them. Who writes about Eastern Indian culture, lesbianism, S & M, Romance, incest, and uses different spellings for words, like colour and color? You need to have a one strike rule and toss him out. I recognize quite a few of his stories from Literotica and Storiesonline. He is a liar and a cheat and you encourage it by allowing him to stay on your site once he was proven to be a thief. Thanks for taking mine down, at least.
