It is impossible for me to reply to you in person, even if you sign your message with a first name. If you have a question and need an answer, I promise I will not reveal your identity or email to anyone.
The new Chapter 8 has been available since 5/27. Try reloading the page if you're seeing the old version.
And I do plead with my readers to indulge me and read the new version. There are some significant changes. I suspect there are many of you out there who have yet to read the new one. When chapter 8 version 1 went up I had over 400 downloads that day alone. In the two days since the new 8 went up I've had only about 60 downloads.
And thank you, as always, for your interest in my stories.
