Family, Friends & Supporters:
Thank you for the breathing room to date. Recently several of you have commented on recent postings I've made to this site. You have mentioned how my writing has improved (note: is improving... hopefully it will continue to do so... I am not done... not by a long shot... not if I have breath). Some of you have used these conversations to express your excitement and have then tried (unsuccessfully) to persuade me to reveal works that I have penned or am penning under pseudonyms. I am sorry but I have not changed my position here. My name does not have to be associated with works I write. Sometimes it will be. Sometimes it won't. It's still me writing them all. And I know—roughly—where I am in relation to where I want to be and my goals regarding my professional endeavors in creative expression are as simple and straightforward as they have been: improve, have fun creating stories meant to entertain or enlighten in some (even small) way, make a reasonable living (a modest, sustainable life), and build a self-expression system and framework from the outset that allows me to retain as much privacy and anonymity as I am able. Thank you for the recent kind and encouraging words. They are a wonderful Christmastime present.

P.S. Obviously "Delay" and all JACOB'S LADDER stories, whether finished or in-process, will be pubbed under my name since I posted an excerpt of a first draft here. I hope that is some consolation to a few of you who have commented about this story specifically. Cheers.
Author's Note: I busk online, for tips and grins. Tipping is always appreciated. Here's where you can. Thanks!
