Chapter 16 is posted. The story, while purposely meant to move along with action and suspense, is not going to be an on-going bloodbath. The killings at the Pahsimeroi cabin were the turning point for our characters. Warriors in this story will strive to learn a new way. This chapter is a big turning point. There are many ways to evade or defeat an enemy without killing. Accidents may happen, and that will be unfortunate, but wholesale killings will be avoided. I hope you enjoy the trip.
We're off to north Idaho again Wed a.m. for a week or more; the wife's elder siblings are presenting a daunting health and recovery challenge. Wish us all well. I'm taking writing tools and will spend evenings working on more chapters. =GB=
