I know that it's been a while since I've posted a chapter of the story or a blog entry. I have to apologize but I've been (and actually still am) vacationing with my family. It means that my writing time has dwindled to next to nothing but I HAVE been writing. I'm working on getting chapter 9 ready to post so I hope that will be up soon. Chapter 10 will, hopefully, not take as long. I hope that you will all be patient with me while I spend some quality time with my wife and kids.
