I have gotten so much feedback on the stories I have submitted so far that I can't hope to reply to each and every one as has always been my custom on other sites. I am not complaining, because I really need feedback in order to improve my writing as well as to see what type of stories the readers on this site enjoy.
Please continue with the feedback. I read each and every one, and I do make notes of what you liked and didn't like about each story.
A special thanks, with an embarrassed apology, to all those who pointed out the incorrect spelling of Auckland in my sailing story. My spell checker caught the error, and for some reason, I ignored it. I especially apologize to the readers from Down Under.
