Unfortunately, this is just an update. However, the next chapter is in the process of going through its final edits. Barring unforeseen tragedies, it will be posted next weekend.
In all likelihood, I'll be splitting it into two chapters. But! I will post them both at the same time. The chapter is that big. It covers the entire Tuesday, so you should have plenty to chew on.
I hate that it has taken me so long to post chapters this year. The summer turned out to be much busier than I had anticipated. While it has been busy, I've been able to do a lot of writing as well.
I started to post updates to my blog, but then didn't know what to post as an update since I really didn't know when chapter 56 would be posted. I've also totally neglected my email. I've partly done that because in the past it has slowed me down even more when I'm struggling to find time to write.
So, for those I owe emails, I apologize. For those waiting and checking every week for a chapter, I apologize as well. It's the nature of being an amateur writer with a husband and kids.
Nick, my editor, has been very patient with me as well. I very much appreciate ALL the time he devotes to helping make "Melissa's Secrets" what it is. As I head down the homestretch with this book, there are so many continuity checks that have to be made. Needless to say, this story would be a mess without him.
Again, thanks for hanging in there ... one more week!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
