Thank you to all who have read and enjoyed my first effort at a serial novel. The post-apocalypse theme is a favourite of mine, and one I’ve wanted to properly explore for some time. I hope I've articulated my vision into words adequately.
The ‘Parasites’ need a better name. I had theorised that the invasion happened so quickly there wasn’t time to officially name them. I attempted to classify various stages of evolution and function with names such as ‘Creep’, ‘Crawly’, ‘Host’ . I figured isolated communities would invent their own names such as ‘Gloomers’.
And I know the media would have dreamed up some memorable tags within hours of the outbreak.
A special thanks to everyone who asked questions, pointed out broken links, and led me down paths I may never have taken without your input.
Having errors in my work is my pet hate. It really interferes with the flow of a story. Your mind hits a spelling mistake like a speed-bump. It takes a moment to recover momentum and get lost in it again. So I send special thanks to those of you who picked up my slips and omissions. Some, (less secure), writers may not appreciate this, but I for one, love readers who take the time and effort to do so.
The words ‘For Now’ leaves the story open for a sequel. I have many ideas and even a few pages already written, but I would like to complete a bunch of short stories first. Something in me feels a need to be published and paying my way around here.
P.S. I'm really sorry about using word verification to leave a comment but I'm getting slammed by spam. I will make it as easy as possible to access comments as better methods arise.
