Dear Reader:

Please do not copy these posted chapters: they are for your personal reading pleasure only while connected to this web site. They may not be distributed, transmitted, or otherwise moved from this place. If you think you'd like to post them on your website, please contact me directly. (Small excerpts may be quoted for review purposes as long as you send me a copy of the review after it's released.)

Like most authors I am not entirely sure where this story will take me. I had a plan when I began, as most authors do, but as I write, I often find that the characters have plans of their own. As a writer, you often find your characters develop personality and ideas that you did not give them. They become alive and take you places you had not intended.

Rather than limit myself in any way, take this as your official warning: this material is designed for adult audiences only. If you are under the legal age of majority in your present location, you should not read this novel without your parents' permission. While most of the story will be suited for any audience, parts of it could possibly contain vulgar language, violence, and/or sexual situations which may make some people uncomfortable. If you may be offended by any of this, you should not read this novel. I will not limit my writing to keep from offending those with narrow minds or weak constitutions.

This story tells you nothing about me or my tastes except whether or not I can write an engaging story. Like writers of murder stories, I do not necessarily approve of any of the actions described herein. Any resemblance of any character to any individual, alive, dead, or yet to be born, is purely coincidental. The story is entirely fiction. All characters and events in the novel are fictional. They are made-up, imaginary, and not real. Mostly.

I take my time writing, because if you don't write at your own pace, it doesn't usually come out very good. If you want to see new chapters produced more quickly, drop me a note and say something: it may spur me to spend a bit more time on the story.

I hope you like what's here and I thank you for your time in coming here and reading what my characters and I have to say. Once again, I really love comments, suggestions, and even criticisms, so please feel free to send me feedback. The only thanks and encouragement an author gets is when you take the time to write. I answer all mail. Flames will be cheerfully ignored, but constructive criticism is welcome. That being said, a special word of thanks goes out to those who have written and offered words of support and encouragement for my past endeavours.
