Those waiting are going to have to wait a bit longer. While this thread will be shorter than the other two threads... I think... every once in a while Jake fools me and we go in a direction I had not expected... which is what just happened to me. Jake has his own way in the world. I am just trying to chronicle it. :-)
I also have the outlines for two short stories belonging to the Second Thread. The stories' working titles are "The Whale" and "An unlikely Peter." The Wives, and double and triple Jakes are talking to me about that second one at the moment as it affects them.
The first of the two short stories belongs to the first of the Jake's Girls stories. I can see more of those in the future. If I don't bore you all to death!
It is clear to me that there are those who like the thematic material I handle, but it is a small group compared to the huge following other writers have. To those of you who like my stuff and have written to encourage me, I thank you very much.
One correspondent suggested I post the stories as chapters to get more readership, but some of my chapters have no sex, some are only sex... they are not even as the chapters are not formulaic. The story exists as a whole and never leaves my desk in pieces, not ever. I place chapter endings where they make sense to me, but not in a place that makes sense for serialized posting. So while I appreciated the suggestion on boosting readership, I took a pass on the suggestion.
