Solo chapter this week and an update on coming events

Hey all,

Chapter 46 was twice as long as my normal offerings so there is only one file this week.

Only eight chapters remain in the tale and I plan to conclude the story in mid-February.

My next project, a sequel to "The Outsider" titled "A Flawed Diamond" has already been worked over by inestimable BlackIrish and is with the proofreaders now. I will begin posting it as soon as "Guard" is concluded and I have enough chapters in hand to ensure there isn't a large gap between uploads.

At present, "Diamond" comes in at 95 chapters (not including an author's note and an epilogue). I hope to be able to use the same expedited posting schedule I used on "Daze In The Valley" but I can't commit to that just yet.

I have nothing else finished but I hope to wrap up one of several partially written stories (perhaps even the sequel to "Unending Night") by midway through the uploading of "Diamond" so I can keep BlackIrish from growing fat and lazy on us.

We'll just have to see where I head in the coming weeks. I've worked sporadically on about half a dozen stories since I finished writing "Diamond" last summer. So far nothing has reached out and grabbed me like "Daze," "Guard," and "Diamond" did. I'll work a week or two on one story and then set it aside for six weeks while I work on something different.

I keep hoping that one of them will scream out for me to finish it but so far no luck.

Best wishes,
Jay C.
