I was aware of the problem with tenses in my writing. I tried to fix them, but some got through. I'll have to see about correcting that. It happens with me, because I don't write the whole story at once. One chapter I write in past tense, another in present. Mostly, my intention is to submit a story in past tense; never mixed like it is in chapter 5. I'll make the corrections and post them this weekend.
Thanks for the heads up, Bill.
Yet another example of feedback helping me improve my writing. I do appreciate it.
