THE LONG PATROL Still Captures the Imagination

Sometimes a story just sticks with you. The words pass from the page through your eyes and are spun into vivid images in your mind. Occasionally, those images linger somewhere within you.

I was literally about to turn off my computer at work when I remembered that I had not scheduled anything for today. I haven’t missed a post in I don’t know how long (it’s probably not as long as I’m letting myself believe), and I’ll be damned if I miss one now.

Manuscript: Beta has officially surpassed 190,000 words, and I still have a chapter+ to write.

Happy Happy Hour!
