Thank you

The Clitorides awards are out. Community appears in two categories, eighth place as Epic Erotic Story and third place as Best Romantic Story. Additionally, Kimberly 2.0 is ninth place as Best Romantic Story.

My name is at the bottom of the list for Author of the Year. Yeah, tenth place, but hey!, it's on the list.

When I set out on this odyssey, my intention was to write stories like I wanted to read. Since that time, I've found some authors who achieve that goal for me, but I have also found that I gave live to characters that you and I are interested in, and I keep writing because I want to see what happens next.

Seems like it works.

In all of this, I thank you guys, my readers. I run about 98% positive feedback and you guys give me ideas that often find their way into the stories.

Let's see what happens next.

Still alive...

I am still alive, a bit out of breath from chasing an elusive muse, but I did manage to ratchet out a chapter of Dana which I just sent to the editor. Should be rolling out in a day or two.

I think that will be the final chapter of Dana as a separate story. She's going to be intertwined with the Community in my happy little universe.

That leaves me worried about Dorable, my quirky muse. She likes having three stories going, and I will only be working on two. I have no idea what may pop up.

Memory is the second thing that goes...

I don't remember what the first thing is...

Several of you have written me about my horrible mistake of the surname of the protagonist in Serendipity. One of you listed my errors by chapter. I have just queued up the corrected chapters 2,3 & 6 for re-posting.

This tells me a couple of things -

First, I need to do a better job of keeping notes on my stories instead of pulling these things out to thin air or one body orifice or another.

Second, it means I have eagle-eyed readers who catch things and take the time to write me and tell me. I do appreciate that.

I also want to thank reader 'Ed' for providing so much of the latest chapters of Community Too. His ideas laid the groundwork for the new airplane in that story as well as the meeting at the college over the Munchkin Mafia and the set-up for Cindy's doctoral dissertation defense.

Ed is not the first of you to send me story ideas to use, but of late, he has been extremely helpful.

As always, keep the comments coming. They are a very pleasant addition to the huge checks I get for writing these stories.

Pasted the wrong clip into the new chapter of Serendipity.

Fixed it. The right one should post in a bit. For those who got here early, you got a preview of the next chapter of Community Too

Not ALL my fault

In regard to Chapter 35 of Community Too you will note that about two-thirds of the way through the chapter Alan gets a phonecall concerning Terri. That's an idea sent to me by one of my readers, 'Ed', that just seems to be too good to pass up.

So, a tip of the hat to Ed. I hope I can make it work out to his satisfaction.
