I have recently learned that the email address on this story, while reading correctly, would send the email to a nonexistent address if clicked on directly. The Nifty Archivist has been kind enough to fix that problem for future emails. My apologies to those of you who were unable to get through, and please feel free to write now.
To all my readers who have been able to reach me, I thank you for your encouraging words and I apologize for how long the next chapters are taking to post. My hope is to begin posting again by April.
