Update on the coming chapters

Hey folks,

I just wanted to let you guys know that I am over halfway done with chapter seven and chapters 8, 9, and 10 all have scenes that are finished. Now, they aren't done yet, but with several large chunks already done, they should be done pretty quick.

For those of you who are beta readers, I will not be handing out more then six chapters at any given time. To keep you from getting lost, there will be chapter summaries for all the previous chapters not included in your beta copy. So those of you who have the Preface and chapters 1-6 will have only the summaries for those chapters when you get 7-10.

Does that make sense? o_O

Anyway, I may post quotes from different chapters occasionaly, but I'm not posting clips. Its just too darn easy to steal stuff off the internet these days, sorry folks.

I'll post a new blog when I have more chapters completed, so keep an eye out ^_^

I'd also like to ask you again to keep me in your prayers. This is a dream I've had since I was about 12yrs old, and I would love for my story, and the ones that follow, to make it out there. I'm not hoping to make it big, I just want to share the stories that are floating around my head. I just want to be able to show my future kids that they really can follow their dreams if they put there minds to it.

So if you pray for me, pray that this story, and others, keep coming to me. That the words I need keep flowing, and that the stories that make it to paper get published.

Thanks for everything, guys.

On beta copies...

Hey folks,
Just a heads up...I only have three beta copies in circulation. They are all currently with a beta reader, so if your one of my readers and you don't have a copy, I'm sorry. I will not be handing out anymore then three at a time because I dont want to lose track of how many are out there.

Only two betas have chapters 3-6 as well as chapters 1-2 and the preface.

Heres the kicker...chapter 5 is going to be added to, but I need your help. What kinds of questions would you ask if you found yourself in Kristal's senario? What would you want to know before accepting such a responsibility?

For those of you not reading for me...heres a clip to explain what I mean. Here the Elders are telling Shadow what she must do. She, in turn, tells this to Kristal when she asks if Kris is willing to help...

“What is the task, honored Elders?”
Elder Dragon heaved a sigh of his own, “The task is simple, lewa. You must go to the human world and find the girl that will give our eggs life. You must bring her back here alive and aware, to spill her blood upon the eggs. And in this, she must be a willing sacrifice.”
“Sacrifice? She will die?”
Elder Gryphon shrugged, “We don’t know. It may well be that she will die. All the same, she might not. But if she doesn’t know the risks, and if she does not come willingly, it will not work.

This is all I'm going to post, but it should be enough for ya'll to get the picture ^_~

I am still working on outlines for each chapter and I'm happy to say I have outlines for chapters 7-16. I will continue to do more outlines to help guide the story and hopefully it will result in it being done sooner rather then later, lol.

Anyway, I still have more work to do so I'll check back later.

P.S. If you do leave a question for the story...leave your name too. If I use your question I'll put your name in the Thanks/Acknowledgements saying how you helped(this will be in the published book). Credit to where it is due ^_~

Thanks a bunch!

More chapters finished

I don't have much time so I'll keep this short.

I now have chapters 1-6 done. I'm still not happy with chapter five, but for all intents and purposes...its done.

Chapters 7-10 have been outlined and I will start work on them soon. For now I need to finish and old fanfiction before my readers kill me, lol.

Well, thats all for now, I'll post more later...
