A Flawed Diamond

The first three chapters of my latest work, A Flawed Diamond, are in the queue. This is the sequel to The Outsider.

If some of it looks familiar, it's because I posted the first two chapters several years ago and then abandoned the story when Daze In The Valley and Always on Guard consumed my time. My trusted editor, BlackIrish, is the main reason this story got past Chapter Seven.

I sent the few chapters I'd finished off to him about 18 months ago and he came back with a dozen suggestions about where the story could go. A simple "Thank You" doesn't seem enough but that's all I have to offer him.

The finished story clocks in at more than 90 chapters and I will post it in serial format. I will keep to Fridays for now until I have more in hand from my excellent proofreading crew.

Please read the Author's Note that appears before Chapter 1. It will explain some things about the story and perhaps keep some readers from growing disenchanted as it progresses.

This was a fun story to write and, as always, I hope the readers will enjoy the ride.
