I know it has been a while since I've brought my status up to day. My apologies. My mind has been on other projects. I'm sorry to report that I haven't gotten much more done on Book IV than I had at the time of my last update.
I haven't abandoned this project. I enjoy the characters and the story, and I plan to continue it, but there is some stuff that I've got to finish before I'm free to get back to writing fiction.
I'll leave another post when I've resumed the story.
