This new version should have fewer errors.

TFD: Chapter Six has been Uploaded

Chapter six has been uploaded along with an updated chapter five. The changes to five were all minor.

Six begins the tying up of open threads. Characters are moving into position for the resolutions to their stories.

Chapter seven is in progress. It has a good structure, and many of the key scenes have been written.

I've learned a great deal while writing this story and am considering a future rewrite of the first two, maybe three chapters.

Feel free to contact me with questions or comments. This story is far better because of the feedback I've received. My readers are the best!

Thank you.

TFD Progress Update

Chapter six is with my editor. At nearly 16k words in length, chapter six is the longest to date. It includes details that have been hinted at but not fully explained.

Chapter seven is in work and progressing well. Currently, it's about 8k words long. For those wanting more action, seven will be your chapter.

I plan on uploading an updated chapter five soon.

Feel free to write with any questions or comments. Even if it's the "YOU TAKE TOO LONG" type of comment. If I had known how TFD would be received, I would have held it back until complete and published it a chapter a week.

TFD I've uploaded an updated Chapter Five

An astute reader caught a mistake. It has been corrected.

Somewhere between versions two and three, I deleted a scene where my protagonist learns his future father-in-law had a misunderstanding.

I have replaced the scene as well as corrected a few minor errors.

If you wish to locate the addition, search for the word "misunderstanding." the first two instances of the word are what you want.

Also, I would like to thank my readers. With the release of chapter five, my story had more downloads than with any other single chapter. Currently, chapter six is 28 pages long, and I have more to add. It may prove necessary to split six into two chapters.

TFD - Chapter Five is Finished

I will be uploading it within the hour.

Five is over 13K words in length. It covers about a week of time, and a week with Aunt Deborah is too long.

My apologies for taking so long with it. Large sections have been rewritten. The ending alone required three rewrites. I hope you enjoy reading it.

Chapter six is coming along. At one point, it neared 10K words in length, and it still wasn't finished. It was too wordy and I cut it down to more of the essential elements.

Chapters seven, eight, and nine have all been started.
