I've received several messages, mostly on Facebook, concerning this blog, and the pulp story it contains. Those messages have made a huge decision for me.
Here are a few choice quotes from them...
"This isn't the kind of story I would normally read, but a friend posted it on his page. I decided to give it a try. I'm hooked! Please finish the story for me!"
"What is going to happen to Rose and the Black Mask? I can't stand not knowing!"
"I think I'm falling in love with the Black Mask."
"You certainly know how to write a hook. No ending, though? "
"POST THE REST OF THE STORY!!!"
"The last chapter creeped me out. When did the good guy get so dark? I like rooting for him."
Are you going to finish it?"
I sent off a couple of letters today to the publishers, explaining that I have 1236 people who have visited the blog, that I feel they want to know what happens to these characters, and that I have decided to finish the story as it began. Online. For free. At least a chapter a week, until it's over.
For the record, I want to say thanks to all of the people who messaged me. Thanks to all of the people who have read it, so far. Thanks for being patient. Let's finish this thing, shall we?
