Here we have it; the last chapter of Shadowchild is now online. I'd say something sentimental like "I hope you've enjoyed taking this journey with me," but that'd be too cheesy, and also, there's nobody here! Echo! Echo!!!
Anyway, if you DO stumble upon this at some point I'm glad you're here, and here's your bit of trivia for the day: The title of this last chapter is a reference and a tribute to my all-time favorite TV show, Babylon 5.
So anyway, the story's done updating but the series is far from finished. I'm working on the audiobook, and relaunching the rest of the trilogy, so while this blog may get even quieter than normal, there's plenty still going on behind the scenes. So check back on occasion, or just follow me on social media. All my posts are announced across every platform.
I'll be around.

Chapter Twenty-Six is now up and running. Bennie and Sandra finally have a bonding moment.
I think I mentioned before a lot of Bennie and Sandra's mother-daughter dynamic stemmed from the strained relationship my own mum and I had, which, about that age, gave way to our now very strong relationship. Reaching this chapter was, and is, a point where I can breathe a sigh of relief. Bennie, like all girls her age, needs a good, strong woman in her life, and who better than her mother? It's also a growing point for Sandra, to know that Bennie is turning into a woman and needs her in a different way, and to face her own fears.
On a more cheerful note, I'm happy to say after some unexpected delays, Shadowchild is now available on BookShare! If you or someone you know has a print or a vision disability that makes conventional reading difficult or even impossible, BookShare is an online library that provides reading material in accessible ways. Navigate to the Books tab for a link straight to the book's directory page.
I'm also working on an audiobook version of Shadowchild but more on that later. ;) Stay tuned!

Chapter Twenty-Five is up and running! We finally get some answers, from a "ghost" unfortunately.
I have to laugh a little at this posthumous-conversation setup I employed, as I used it in my fanfiction back in the day, and this book first came out the same year as the last Harry Potter book, which coincidentally also employed this method. Seems we had the same brainwave. The same occurred regarding my concept of Rends and Lisa Shearin's Gates if you remember!
