The dreaded Author's Note Chapter.
So I've been much absent from the site lately, and have been working diligently at both my homework and projects for here, but mainly on my Shadow trilogy with my main betareader/co-writer, who is Yoda1976 on here, though he's too occupied to actually write something of his own. It's terrible if there's not someone there to edit for him. Not that he doesn't have his elements in which he shines.
But that's neither here nor there. We have jointly decided that in order to make this third book anything resembling a good piece of fiction, we are going to have to go back and heavily re-write the second book. The whole thing. And probably at least two or three of the stories in Interum. So with that being said, we will be deconstructing this story for the moment, and Shadows of the Sith as well, and then we will begin to put it back up. Actually, now that I think of it, if it pleased the audience, I will put up the rewrite separately. I'm working through in my head what this will entail, and it's going to be difficult, but not impossible.
Major changes: Ages for the kids. Liz is going to be 20 instead of 18, the twins are getting bumped up from 13 to 16, and the triplets are going to be 13. I think this will line their actions up much better with their maturity level. Haven't decided about the pregnancy yet, but we will get there.
We're pulling the Ghost story line as being too contrived and not authentic. I think. I'm writing this at 2 am, about a conversation I had at about 5 pm, and was distracted while having said conversation.
