I recently was forced to take a brief sabbatical from writing when my laptop was broken. I finally managed to get a new one, and thanks to the suggestions and guidance of several readers, I was able to salvage the hard drive (and the story) from the broken one. I also learned the hard way, the value of backing up my work, often!
Thankfully, my editors, Cassie, Jack, Greg, and LaToya were still there, and they were still willing to help. I am now back to harassing them regularly. Trust me, you wouldn't want to read the story before they get it. But after they work their respective magic, the story just seems to come to life.
On another note, when I was able to get back online, I was sad to learn that Roger, my main editor on Book II, was no longer online. I know that he was having health issues, and since he hasn't responded for six months now, I'm assuming the worst. If anyone happens to know what happened to 'dragonres', please drop me a note... I miss him.
Just a reminder, I really appreciate your emails regarding the story. I try to respond to as many as I can. And if you have a question I can answer, I will.
And as always, thank you for reading my story,
