A reader contacted me and suggested that I post the teaser for "Triptych" as that story and not just as an afterword for "Model Student." That way, people would be able to bookmark the story now and get their alerts when I start updating in June. It sounded like a good idea and I went one step further. I also posted a cast list (something I failed to do with "Model Student") with the names and a brief description of each character. That post went live a few minutes ago, so you can now take a look at the cast for "Triptych" and read the teaser.
Of course, these are only the characters that you already know from "Model Student." I've left off those that are not likely to appear in Triptych, but might...no, will...add others as I go.
In order to encourage new readers when "Triptych" starts, I'm working on a Preface that will catch readers up with where the story is. I don't want to force people to read "Model Student" in order to enjoy "Triptych."
When "Triptych" starts, I'll also be posting a separate piece with interviews with the characters, each timed appropriately. As Tony finds something out about a character, the rest of that character's story will appear in the interview.
Don't give up yet. It's not as complicated as it seems, but I'm getting more and more excited about starting "Triptych" and hope you'll join me for the ride in June!
