So ends the beginning of a saga... the saga of a new, reluctant, and obscure superhero. This being my first attempt at writing fiction, I tried not to take myself or my story too seriously. I do take my writing seriously though, so constructive comments and suggestions are always welcome-- especially concerning plot holes, timeline contradictions and such.
I want to take this opportunity to once again thank my supporters, editors and proofreaders-- Sage Mullins, TeNderLoin, and UnaPrincipessa in particular-- for their time and effort. I would also like to extend a big public "Thank You!" to Old Man With a Pen for his pithy advice on dealing with writer's block.
For those of you who care about such things, this story was outlined and drafted using Evernote (www.evernote.com) almost exclusively on a Motorola Droid RAZR (R.I.P.!), an LG G2, and an Asus Transformer TF101 tablet. Editing and revision was done with the much more traditional MS Word on an Acer Predator with a Seiki 40" 4xHD monitor. Overkill? Certainly. But I can have MS Word, Minecraft, Facebook and the Penguins game on screen in 1080p windows all at once!
There are two more parts to the A&TA "trilogy." I am currently working on Part 2 and Part 3 is outlined. In the meantime I will also be posting some shorter stories to (hopefully) keep you happy. But have no fear, dear reader! The adventures of Adam (and, of course, the Ants) will continue with deeper plots, more powers for Adam and others, and an explanation of where the powers came from. Along the way there will also be twisted plot lines, villains you'll love to hate, and millions of lives to be saved. Oh, and we can't forget Charlotte! Adam may or may not get together with her, eventually... I haven't really decided yet.
