I wanted to let everyone know that I just queued the Epilogue for The Consequences and Rewards of Playing Hooky. I really want to thank everyone for their kind words and strong support. It has been a bit of a roller-coaster ride with voting, but I guess it is just the nature of the beast. I also realize that some people might have wanted me to focus more on "Derek's harem", but I needed to take the story in the direction my muse wanted me to (or suffer seven years of "writer's block", lol).
Hopefully fans of the harem aspect of the story will find some satisfaction in the ending (as the girls play a big role in the Epilogue).
Anyway, thanks again for all of your support, ideas, questions and good wishes. Posting Hooky here has really been a positive experience and for that I'm really grateful!!!!!
