Pages 277 - 283 posted...

Mark and Pizza venture into the house where Timothy died in search of answers. Are they ready for what they find?

Chapter Eight begins - "Sins of our Fathers"...

Well, it sure feels good to get back into writing. I did certainly miss it. Funny how writers block can leave just as quickly as it arrives. Hopefully I have seen the last of that particular dysfunction for quite some time.

I again have to offer my sincere apologies for falling off of the horse with my writing, and also for my error that caused confusion with my last week's blog posting. Seems I forgot how to count - I just plain ran out of fingers!

Thanks again for all the wonderful emails of encouragement - I really appreciate the time that people take to write to me - It is overwhelming to say the least!

Well, back to work - enjoy this weeks portion of the story!

Till next week!

Mort is back - and he's looking for Mark....

Hi everybody! What can I say - I apologize for the long absence - Writers block (and life) happens. In the famous words of Stephen King in his book "On Writing", I felt as though "I was shoveling Sh** in a sitting position." - Ah, Stephen King sure can put things into perspective...

However, I'm now back on the writing horse again, and plan to get to the good stuff... Time for some action!

Thanks for all the emails, and for your patience...Lets get back at it, shall we?

Enjoy, and come back next week...

Pages 263-269 Posted...

Doug shows the large inmate the hard way to be "narrow minded". Mort re-enters the story...

Pages 263 - 269 posted for your enjoyment!

I am finding less endless time to write this time of the year - the work outdoors is seemingly endless - The renovations are not helping any either - I will get back on a steady routine as things calm down, but unfortunately right now, things are crazy.

Thanks again for all the letters of encouragement. They are downright inspiring - Keep them coming!

Funny thing - The Guard character that is about to meet his untimely demise - Craig - is named after a fellow that I work with. It holds absolutely no meaning, and the real Craig is a really super great guy - just seems funny to give his name to a character that gets killed off - Sorry Craig, absolutely nothing is meant by it, buddy... Heheheh.... really....

Well, back at it - Till the next posting!

Think you know what happened to Doug in the jail cell?

Pages 259-263 are posted for your enjoyment...

I know, I know - a day late and 2 1/2 pages short - I had a bunch down, but I didn't like it, so I decided to re-write it. Rather than make you wait, I posted what I have - more to come asap!

The Novel's Baaaaaack......

Now we can get to the good stuff!

The boys, with the addition of one, start off on their journey into the unknown. They go to meet destiny, and unknowingly, death itself...

Pages 244-258 have been posted for your enjoyment.

Sorry for the long absence - The wedding was wonderful, and life simply could not be better! I took an extra week away from writing to enjoy my family, and just to enjoy life overall...

We have had an addition to our family - Bailey (Mojo) Moses - A seven week old Shih Tzu puppy who is the cutest little thing - he now keeps me company as I write, and is the perfect addition to the family. What a little cutie!

Well, onward with the story - the regular posting schedule will now be back in place after this much needed rest, and the story will now progress....

Thanks for your patience, and your understanding - Till next week!

Grandma Rose decides - It's time to fill Mark in on the horrible family secret... Is he ready?

Pages 241 - 247 have been posted for your enjoyment...

Sorry for the delay - I am now only 12 days away from my wedding where I officially become the luckiest man in the world, and marry the absolute love of my life, Bonny. We have been busy, to say the least with all the preparations and such. I am sooo happy, and a little confused as to why someone as wonderful as her would marry a schmuck like me... I can only hope that she doesn't get her eyes tested prior to the wedding on the 30th...LOL!

I will be taking a bit of a break from the Novel as Friends and Family are coming from the other side of Canada, so I will be giving them my full attention and enjoying life for the next 25 days or so... I will come back after a much needed break, and we will get to the absolute meat of the story... It will be well worth the wait... The next post can be expected on the 15th of July...

Hang in there, and wish me luck! This is truly the happiest point in my life!

Till next time!
