A number of readers have inquired whether Pasayten Pete will continue anytime soon?
I could plead that the dog ate my papers, or keyboard, or monitor cable ... but she didn't.
Short answer: yes, Pasayten Pete will continue. Absolutely. I'm working on the next chapter now, really, really ... now.
Here's more info that I posted to a kind inquiry earlier this evening:
"I got caught up in an overload of teaching classes, then November and NaNoWriMo. The good news about that is another serial, a sci-fi novel centered around Antarctica called 'Masi'shen Stranded' will be offered on FS when it's finished. I've got 50K words of that done, and another 60 or 70K to go."
I anticipate only a few more chapters to conclude Pasayten Pete. That will be 'book one.' I've already got a complete outline finished for book two, which will be called "Gold Mountain." This will see Graydon and Marilee working together, with the full cast of characters.
I don't plan to begin posting new serials until they're finished, so we'll avoid falling into these embarrassing 'holes.'
