I have just posted a new story for the NIS universe. It's an idea I had several years ago and have played with a little during breaks from writing Bec. I need to thank Erik Thread for the excellent feedback that allowed me to improve the story as well as his editing.
I have been writing some, but unfortunately nothing that is ready to be posted. Bec4 has made some progress but it is still a long way from being complete. Other projects are in various stages of completion. Thanks for your patience.
Thanks to the anonymous reader who pointed out an inconsistency with names between Experiment 36 and Experiment 37. I have now uploaded a fix.
I try very hard to keep my stories technically correct. Please feel free to point out any errors you notice and I will fix them (If I agree they are actually errors <grin>)
I am continuing to work on several writing projects at the moment, one of which is Bec4. After the difficulties I experienced with delays in finishing previous Bec books I am determined to actually finish Bec4 before I begin posting it. That means you will all have to wait for a while before getting any new Bec stories. In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy the other projects I have been working on simultaneously. I will post them when and if I finish them.
In the meantime, Bec says "Hi." She hopes you are being nice to your family. She very much wants you to find somebody important to you and then give them a big slow gentle hug.
Experiment 37 is now posted. It is a direct sequel to Experiment 36 even though I tried to write it as another stand-alone story.
Once again I intended it to be fairly light-hearted and not to be taken too seriously, though I found that I couldn't help myself and ended up inserting some quite tender moments.
I've said it before, I tend to write about broken people. They react differently and that makes them interesting. I'm not trying to make fun of people who have those sorts of issues. Ultimately, I find myself in awe of Sally's parents because they have built a life and a family despite their issues.
I guess another theme within my writing is the importance of family, regardless of how functional or otherwise the family is. Sally is broken too, in her own way, and her family is vital to her. But she needs more than they can give so she has to find that extra support outside of her immediate family. That is not uncommon.
