A surprising number of people have read and enjoyed Waif, with downloads through Amazon now around the 6,000 mark. I decided I ought to write a follow up, and that’s what I’m now doing. I think it will be longer than the original, and perhaps a bit darker. Not sure when it’ll be finished; hopefully this side of Christmas but it may stretch into the new year. Anyhoo, today you can read the opening to the new tale (Contessa). Hope you enjoy, and do leave feedback.
