As you know by now, I am posting my current story, Yakima. The logjam was broken by my very able and long-suffering editor, ErikThread. He finished his work and returned it with the notation that it was (I'm paraphrasing here) a Coaster Story, with Coaster Characters and Coaster Dialogue. He's right, of course. It's what I write and what I'm confident with. By the look of the response to Yakima, I shouldn't have worried about it. I'm very pleased with both the score and the feedback.
Now that I'm back in the saddle, I'll be following Yakima immediately with The House at Sand Pines. I've also sent a new story, freshly written, to Erik entitled Accidental Hero. The response to these three stories will tell me if I'm on the right path. I've still got three more in an unfinished state, so there's more to come after a fairly long dry spell.
