I have just submitted a belated Author's Note that occurred to me as I was writing Chapter 13 of In the Darkness Falling. I was writing up the next chapter and I got to thinking about the scene in Chapter Twelve where Alice talks to the Russian Foreign Minister. I realized I have been rather free with the characters of actual people and that got me to thinking about the credits in movies where they have the disclaimer that the film does not reflect real persons. So I wrote up my own disclaimer, somewhat insincere though it is, just so people reading know that I did as little research into those characters that are actual historical figures as I could get away with to satisfy my own historical nitpicking. If you are into that sort of thing, enjoy. If not, you can ignore it.
As for Chapter 13 of ItDF, I have it written but I need to type it into the computer and that might take another couple/few days. I will endeavor to get that done and edited as soon as possible and then posted. Your patience is appreciated.
