The first decade!

I just realized I've passed my first decade as an amateur writer. It's been a great pleasure to see the positive feedback I've received and it's kept me going. I must admit, after posting almost 80 stories, I've run thin on ideas, but that doesn't mean I don't have a few concepts in the works. Thanks to all of you who have written to comment (criticize or compliment)and have voted to keep me encouraged to continue.
Cheers,

Six Stories Hijacked by Ronald Trumph

Thanks to some keen-eyed readers, six of my stories were stolen and published on Amazon yesterday by some character named Ronald Trumph. His pen name makes perfect sense when you think about it. Now I have to go through the laborious process of getting them kicked off the site. This guy has a lot of balls to think no one will notice when he doesn't even attempt to change the titles.

Fixes for Life on Another Planet & a Sequel

I've have made a multitude of fixes for various errors in this story. I'd like to thank Gordon Johnson and DaveT for their input. Gordon's eagle eye and Dave's technical knowledge have been invaluable.

I may have boxed myself into a corner, but I have already begun work on a sequel to this story. Where it will go and how it will get there are still under consideration. After all, LOAP was started with a different title and plot, then scrapped and started again. I hope I can find a path to a good read for my loyal fans.
Cheers,

Aftermath of Life on Another Planet

Well, the jury is back and the outcome is very rewarding. This was not an easy story to write and it took some time and discussion before an ending was decided upon. I admit I'm surprised at how good the score was and I'm grateful for all those people who voted, regardless of the score they selected. I've had a number of calls for a sequel and I'm seriously considering it. It won't be any easier to write than the original, so don't expect it to show up any time soon.
Thanks again, it makes all the effort worthwhile.
Cheers,

New Story: Life On Another Planet

A new story being posted and I'm already getting some feedback about minor errors that have slipped through the scrutiny of both editors and myself. I'll wait a day or so to see if any more show up before I repost the first set of chapters, then move on to any other fixes as required. Thank you to those eagle-eyed readers for their help.
