You gotta love self-inserting plot twists. I think I just inadvertently solved a prior problem with my continuity, at least in how the characters end up where they need to go and how. It is still rough and I will save the expansion phase for when the book will be up for editing – 2 years from now. Or 1 year. Depending on how Books 2 and 3 will go and Book 3, easily my favorite, needs little editing.

Also!! Since I know my current readers visit this site from time to time, and do the RSS feeds, I will create a reference section soon… And will likely insert a reference section into Book 2. Oy. Plenty to do!
