Chapter 38, Part 1: New Home, New Threats
Storm

Author's Notes/Warnings: Part 1 - Gun violence, attempted assassination; Part 2 - Explicit sexual content

Hello, wonderful readers! Back with another chapter, and as you can see above, it's going to be a big one! I think I should take the opportunity to point out again that there will be sexual content, beginning in this chapter, so keep an eye on the warnings if you're not into that type of thing. I think you'll like the chapter as a whole, though! And I have to say, I'm kind of excited...this is the first time that one of my chapters was so long that I had to split it into two posts! :D

Also, I wanted to let everyone know that if you've been wanting a free copy of the e-book for Book 1 of this series, you're in luck! I've put it up for download to celebrate the impending publication of Book 2, which should be available at major e-book outlets (like Amazon, iTunes, Barnes and Noble, etc.) by December 15th (hopefully!). I'll give you an update when it's actually out, but if you'd like a copy of Book 1 to while your time away until then, go here.

Thanks, as always, to my editor-in-chief, gwoman for her excellent help in getting these new chapters ready for you all to read.

The vision of hair, bone, grey matter, and flesh passed by so fast that she couldn't separate them as the bullet went through and then tumbled once, falling beside Lex's surprised face...Collapse )

Chapter 37: Battle Royale

Author's Notes/Warnings: Hand-to-hand combat

Hi, everyone! I'm back, with the first chapter of Book 3. I think all of you will like this; I've been having fun reading back through this book and editing it, because I think it drops you in the middle of the action and keeps you there, and I hope you enjoy it. In my world, things have eased up a lot over these past few months and I'm in a lot better of a place. Thanks to all of you for sticking with me through it.

Many thanks to my editor-in-chief, gwoman for all of her help in recent months in getting these new chapters ready for you all to read.

So, we're going to face off against each other, the original team here and our new people.Collapse )

Chapter 36: Plans

Author's Notes/Warnings: No real warnings for this one - enjoy!

Thanks, as always, to my editor-in-chief, gwoman, especially thank you for staying the distance with me on this, as well as all of the other stuff I've written in recent history. :D For anyone who's interested, the first book of this series is now up in its corrected form at Amazon, iTunes, Barnes and Noble, Copia, and Scribd here in the States, and at Flipkart, Oyster, and Ciando for those of you in other locations. For those of you who've been reading and liking this series, I'd love reviews at any location you'd care to leave them.

In other news, due to trying to juggle closing out my sibling's estate, working, and recovering from the surgery I'm going to have in a couple of weeks, I've decided to go on hiatus until October 15. I didn't want to leave you with too much of a cliffhanger in the meantime, so please note that this is the final chapter of Book 2. So, I'm also going to be prepping for the e-release of Book 2 in my time off, as well. Please mark your calendars, because I'll be back on October 17th (changing post day to Saturday!) with the first chapter of Book 3. Enjoy, and see you then!

It's perfect. I think we should take it.Collapse )

Chapter 35: New Beginnings

Author's Notes/Warnings: Stories, moving

Please note that I'm missing my lovely editor gwoman on this chapter, since I'd asked her instead to read over the updated manuscript for the e-book for Book 1 of this story. That's been submitted now, and over the next few weeks will be up at electronic retailers, so hang on to your hats if you want a copy for your e-reader! I'll post a reminder next month, in case you'd like to get a copy. In the meantime, please let me know if anything looks out of order in this chapter, since another set of eyes on it is always welcome.

I've missed having you around so much it's not even funny!Collapse )

Chapter 34: Arrival
Storm

Author's Notes/Warnings: Melancholy, mysterious strangers, that feeling of being set up

Many thanks to my wonderful editor-in-chief gwoman for her work on this chapter, and happy Year of the Goat to everyone! Also, I should let everyone know that I've released the first 20 chapters of this serial as an e-book! You can find it at Amazon, iPad iBooks, Nook, and most every other major e-book retailer out there (might not be posted at all of them yet - keep checking!). I'd love it if anyone would like to leave a review anywhere it's being sold, and if you haven't had a chance to check out Snowzapped's awesome cover art yet, you totally should!

UPDATE: Hey, everyone...I mentioned earlier that I'd released the first 20 chapters of this work as an e-book, and I want to thank my commenters for pointing out to me that there are issues in the manuscript with missing words. As it turns out, the word processor I've been using isn't really up to creating a book-length manuscript and messed up the document as a result, so I'm going to be acquiring a new one and releasing a new edition of the book. In the meantime, please see if you can get a refund if you've purchased the book, and I'll let you know when the new edition is ready. If you can't, I'll be adding text into the book so that you can request a free copy of the new edition. Thanks to all of you for your help in the process of making this story better all along the way!

What else would a bunch of superheroes want to do?Collapse )

Author's Notes/Warnings: No real warnings this time, enjoy!

Thanks to a lack of exams and better planning on my part, my fabulous editor-in-chief gwoman is back on the job! I hope the new year has been treating all of you well.

So, what do you think? Do we match the picture?Collapse )

Chapter 32: Best Laid Plans
Storm
palladian23
Author's Notes/Warnings: Secret plans, bad language, mysterious threats

Here's the next chapter, but it's a bit of a rough edit, due to my lack of time, and hasn't been looked at yet by my editor in chief, gwoman, so please let me know if anything looks or reads funny. I have been getting my sea legs with the estate so I'm not feeling as crazy about it, and I'm hoping that everyone reading this has lovely holidays ahead of them, and a fabulous new year to come!

They may be trying to conceal weapons. If you had to carry something the size of a shotgun, you'd probably want to wear something to hide it.Collapse )

Chapter 31: Breakout
Storm

Author's Notes/Warnings: Bad dreams, violence, mental manipulation

A little true confessions, here, dear readers...a death in my family has forced me to step forward to administer the estate of one of my siblings, for the benefit of an orphaned child. Unfortunately, my very busy job didn't stop, and I still intend to continue posting this according to my schedule, but I have to admit I'm reaching my limits. If any of you have it in good with any deity, please have a word with them to look over me and protect my efforts and my orphaned niece. Also, due to all the craziness, I didn't have time to get this chapter to my editor in chief, gwoman, so please let me know if anything is out of place or wrong; please don't just snicker.

The unearthly calm she often sensed just before a fight fell over her.Collapse )

Author's Notes/Warnings: Not really anything to mention for this chapter - enjoy!

Posting a little earlier than usual today, but I didn't have time to get this chapter to my editor in chief, gwoman, so please let me know if anything is repetitious, out of place, or just plain wrong.

I wanted to ask you guys if you think we could be ready for another tour...Collapse )
