In the Darkness Falling Chapter 15 Submitted

I just posted the next chapter for In the Darkness Falling. Sorry it took so long but I got sidetracked with Rage VI, which should be wrapped up soon. Speaking of wrapping up soon, I am thinking two more postings for ItDF, Chapter 16 and the Epilogue. My plans for Alice post-ItDF have changed and I think there might be a pause between this book and the next so that I can work on other things that have languished unfinished while I tried to wrap up this one. Barring any interference from my Muse, of course.

So check out the new chapter and feel free to let me know what you think.

Nearing the End

I just submitted Chapter 14 of In the Darkness Falling. Many apologies for the delay on it, but the latest Rage story crowded out my writing inspiration and then I got caught up in the holidays. For some reason, my muse demanded I write Rage before finishing ItDF and so that is why I was tardy with this chapter. I am thinking there are probably only two, maybe three, chapters left in ItDF, the finale of which is already written. I will probably need a chapter, maybe a regular chapter and another short chapter to connect the end with Chapter 14. I was hoping to wrap up ItDF by New Years, but that wound up not happening so look for the end to come early in the new year.

So I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season. Check out Chapter 14 and feel free to let me know what you think.

Having grown up in the military, I spent a good bit of my childhood around all things Army and playing soldier with my friends. So imagine my chagrin when I get an e-mail pointing out my rather idiotic misspelling of "rappel" by using "repel" instead. For those reading that at the end of Chapter 12 of In the Darkness Falling and then again in Chapter 13, I have fixed it and resubmitted. All I can say is that I was a bit rushed in editing (and writing for than matter) this chapter thanks to my muse's effort to help me write the end of this story before I have even gotten there.

Sorry for the Delay

I just got Chapter 13 of In the Darkness Falling submitted so it should be up later toady, tomorrow at the latest. I wanted to have it posted yesterday but I ran out of time and energy to give it a last read-through before submitting it. Give it a look and enjoy.

Author's Note and the Next Chapter

I have just submitted a belated Author's Note that occurred to me as I was writing Chapter 13 of In the Darkness Falling. I was writing up the next chapter and I got to thinking about the scene in Chapter Twelve where Alice talks to the Russian Foreign Minister. I realized I have been rather free with the characters of actual people and that got me to thinking about the credits in movies where they have the disclaimer that the film does not reflect real persons. So I wrote up my own disclaimer, somewhat insincere though it is, just so people reading know that I did as little research into those characters that are actual historical figures as I could get away with to satisfy my own historical nitpicking. If you are into that sort of thing, enjoy. If not, you can ignore it.

As for Chapter 13 of ItDF, I have it written but I need to type it into the computer and that might take another couple/few days. I will endeavor to get that done and edited as soon as possible and then posted. Your patience is appreciated.
