After thinking about it and reading over what I had written so far on the space opera I was working on before I started writing Knocking On Door as a single short story quick vacation, I realized I didn't have all that much more to write before I came to the end of what would be book one of the space opera.
So now I have re-edited all of the first 14 chapters and only have to finish chapter 15 to come to the end of Book One of The Flight of the Code Monkey. This story series will be part of the Growing Home in Space universe. And yes, there is a connection.
So, now that I am writing this, heck, I'll post the first chapter while I am online...right now.
