The End of Part VI: El Rancho del Corazon

Chapter 30 of LNDtH2 will post this evening. That's the end of Part VI. Wow! Getting all these kids down to Bloomington has been quite the task. I often tell people that I just sent forty kids to IU and didn't have to pay tuition! Can you imagine what it would be like if we had to pay for our fictional characters to attend real universities? Sheesh!

So that also means that Part VII: Hearthstone Entertainment starts tonight with the introduction and cast list. When Part VI started posting, a lot of people sent email asking questions that I answered in the introduction. It's not as revolutionary an introduction this time as last, but worth the read, especially to refresh yourself on the terms and relationships. I included a cast list with the names of all the characters who appear in this part--I think. It also includes who is in what casa, and if they have any specific job related to the casa, clan, ranch, or production. It includes a couple of new casa that will be formed during this part. Read and Enjoy!

This last bit, I'm burying at the end. I've resisted it out of a sense of pride and nobility that is foolish. Many readers have asked if they can make a donation to support my writing. I always love to get money, but the idea of asking for donations grated on my nerves until one person asked me what the difference was between that and trying to sell my books on Amazon. Touché. So if you'd like to contribute to the writing life, my PayPal account is It happens that it is the account I use for transactions under my mystery and thriller persona, so the email response will not show Devon Layne as the recipient. Just to let you know it didn't go astray. If you wish to contribute and prefer not to buy books on Amazon, I humbly thank you.
