I'm waiting for normal to return after the holidays. Hasn't happened yet. Meanwhile, I'm pushing myself to keep writing on Risen from the Dead. The book has 90 chapters so far and about 300 pages, so I am getting close. Your responses tell me that the adventures of Nick and Kiki should go on, so I'm putting together another tale, which means I need to tailor the ending of Risen from the Dead (She won't be killed off) and create the setting for more. I really don't like series where there are miraculous appearances of protagonists. It's too contrived.
I do keep revisiting the Evolution River Series in my mind. I'm reading Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler, and the thoughts about God are parallel to those in my series in a lot of ways. It is amazing to me how close, actually. The dystopian society she creates is scary real.
The struggle with getting the e-book version of Penelope the Pooting Spider out continues. Now there seems to be a problem with the not correctly embedded fonts in the epub file. UGH! This is the project that will never finish.
