So ends Trading Up. This is sort of an epilogue chapter with several things being described in narrative instead of detail. It was the kind of wrap-up that I didn't think would justify detailed scenes, but more a general cover of how things turned out. I hope you all love it. There's even a hint about another tale I've been working at.

Thanks to everyone who's stuck with me. This one was a little rough on my ego in places, but there was an overwhelming level of support to offset it. Thanks!

And then there was one

Today's chapter is in. It's sort of the one you've been waiting for with a lot of the revenge against Brad coming out, but there's still a few giggles for the wrathful in Chapter 28.

Thanks to all of you for sticking with me through this one. It's a story I love and I love that most of you appreciate it too.

Chapter 26

Today's chapter is up for posting and it's an interesting one. It covers most of Christmas Day for John and Jane, including their awkward dinner with the family.

Thanks again to everyone for all the support. I'm probably going to be taking a little break after Trading Up is finished to concentrate on getting some of my projects finished, including My Journey, Book 4. I'm trying to pump myself up to finish it in time for a December release, so that means I need to buckle down. Less distractions is the best way to do that.

T'was the Night Before Christmas

Chapter 25 should be up by now. It covers Christmas Eve and John and Jane's shopping trip, their visit with Cecilia and the rest of their adventures before Christmas with her family.

Thanks for all the support you all give me. I've mostly lost all the trolls, since they gave up reading the story long ago, so my email has been a lot calmer. Thanks for helping remind me that they're a very small minority.

Four chapters to go

I just posted chapter 24, so it should be available to read by now. It's an interesting chapter that covers most of the rest of John's week and is important for a few reasons, which you'll all pick up on as the chapter unfolds.

Thanks again to everyone who's stuck with me through the rough spots and through the dry spells. I appreciate all your support and would probably have trailed off writing by now if not for all of you
