  • Hi Geoff.

    That was a good story. Thanks. Lets you wonder what he’s in for. Were there any hints about that, and I just missed them?

    Something odd with the epub. The cover shows up in the ereader on my computer, but not on either of my actual ereaders. And on one of them, the outro doesn’t show up either. I had a quick look in Calibre’s editor, but soon realized it was beyond me.

    Keep writing

      Thanks Jim. There are no explicit indicators, just possibilities. I’ve had thoughts for a sequel or two, but wonder if it is best left to the reader’s imagination.

      I did find one issue with the epub. I made a last minute change to the cover and forgot to mark the new image with “Cover” semantics (I use Sigil). Some ereaders use the image directly rather than the html, so that might be it. I’ve uploaded a new epub if you want to try it.
