Dear Reader

If you enjoy this adventurous saga and find it worthwhile, you can help fuel it. If you are pushed for time but not interest and means, fuel it by all means at:

All contributions gratefully received.

Otherwise as you peruse  sections of  this work in constant progress, you might  offer me constructive, critical feedback and technical assistance.

Spotting not so much typos but  glaring things of a literary nature that can be improved. Keeping questions such as the following in mind:

Are the language or ideas in places  routine, contrived, hackneyed, corny, maudlin, or clichéd. Are the emotions florid?

What things could I express better?

Does the saga  hold together? Do I come across as  ingenuous?

Am I convincing or entertaining where I try to be?

Is the story credible or far fetched in parts?

Are there gross inaccuracies, inconsistencies, repetitions or unnecessary and irrelevant parts?

Do I spell things out too forcefully?

Do I grab you you by the throat from the outset and never let you go?

Do I keep  you enthralled, even though the kettle is boiling over?

Is there a rhythm to the story? Does it flow?

or does it plod?

Do some parts need re-working or would be better left out?

Would some parts belong better thematically or sequentially elsewhere?

Would you kindly make any comments and suggestions.

For example does it stir those strong feelings of affection or sympathy brought up by Stan Hunt?

And of course  you can tell others about it.
