As requested, an advance notice: what follows is not the usual fare. It is a first draft of the second chapter of a YA fantasy novel I am working on.
As noted previously, I welcome all feedback, positive or negative. If you can be civil, fabulous. If you can’t, I’ll send your IP address to Elkridge. Thanks for taking the time to indulge me.
Since my current digs are so affordable (rent free, baby!) and spacious, and I have an absentee landlord (one might say he’s … wait for it… out of his mind), I thought I might start a little home business.

Unsurprisingly, his objectivity, own-mindedness, willingness to listen and basic sanity inevitably led him to the same obvious conclusion as the rest of us. In a very short time he became a valuable ally (except for his Mole Moment) and friend.
I will miss him.
So a while back, I decided to scale back a bit here and try a longer project. After the jump, the first draft of Chapter 1.
There’s more in the pipeline, but let’s not be greedy, hmm?
And remember. We loves the feedback! Tell me you hate it. Or not. Just tell me.
I doubt Mark in MD will try to sue me for copyright, since he would have to review his actual name.
