Chapter 90 effectively ends the saga of Up From the Depths. While there are still unanswered questions as to who lives and who dies, that is best left for another day.
I want to thank all of you who continued reading it although there wasn't a set posting schedule. What you have read is the 'beta' version of the novel that had heavily redacted and edited chapters. None of the chapters no matter how long they were, were the full length chapters as they appear in the novel.
This was done to generate interest and feedback to determine if this was something to legitimately seek real world publication.
While the planned end of the novel was chapter 100, that has changed given the shortened chapters as they appear here on this site.
Not to worry, you the reader didn't miss out on anything major that affected the overall storyline. If you read it from start to finish, you know what's it about and hopefully enjoyed the ride along the way.
The epilogue will close out some of the character plot lines but does leave open the possibility of a second book. Doing a second book remains to be seen based on time constraints and real world issues that will, obviously, affect writing and research.
To all of you that sent me feedback, thank you.
Your efforts are very much appreciated and I read each and every single one that came my way.
I want to send out a big thank you to all my proofreaders and editors. Without you, this story would be a convoluted mess.
