Sorry for the delay. At the urging of my editor, I wrote a chapter or two to fill in a time gap he saw in the story. He was also traveling. He is back and chapters 9 and 10 were posted last night. Chapter 11 has been submitted today. I have completed most of the re-write needed to correct the time-line issue. As the editing progresses so will the postings.
I appreciate all of your comments and try to reply to all of them as I have time. I am fixing the typos but will most likely re-post the corrections later instead of trying to re-post the corrections one at a time.
