  1. I’m a bit late to the party but this was too good. Is this going to be part of a book or are you slowly releasing on this blog? Good writing, as always!

    • Thank you!
      It’s part of an ongoing series. I haven’t decided yet what I’ll ultimately do with it, but I will probably keep going for a bit more. Eventually what I’ll probably do is publish it as an anthology, and add some stories that don’t publish online, probably including but not limited to the climax and conclusion.
      Linked are all the other stories in the series in chronological order. The intent is that you can read them in any order (I didn’t write them in chronological order–I’m filling in the gaps as I go along) and the pieces will fall into place as you go.
      Thanks for reading! I appreciate the feedback!
