I wanted to say thanks to all those who have given me such great feedback. Both stories are moving along. A new chapter (#12) of The Bitch was posted this morning, which takes things in a new direction and adds a new voice to the story. And I am working on a new chapter of It Started With Christmas (#11). It might not go where some of you want it to go. But I guess that's what makes me the author and you the readers.
Anyway, thanks for reading, and hope you're still enjoying my work! Let me know if you are, and if you're not, well, there are lots of other stories you can read.
