  1. It’s very weird to be Wednesday and not have a chapter to share after 44 weeks straight. 

  2. Sawyer didn't remember which local craft fair Maddie had acquired the handmade calendar. Engraved designs of forest and wolves topped the hardwood plaque filled with rows of changeable tiles marking the months and days. Frivolous and purely decorative, he'd all but ignored it during his teen years. Now with his new knowledge, it took on so much more meaning. The twenty-fifth had been replaced. Between the twenty-four and twenty-six sat a stylized pine tree topped with a star. Sawyer always used to look forward to December and the Christmas season. They were never a religious family,

    Better than Jada going through what Sawyer did under the full moon.

    well, I couldn't answer earlier and spoil it, now could I?

    Nothing is as satisfying as Jimmy's jambalaya...

    I've enjoyed writing this story so much and have to really thank the readers for all the feedback and comments. It's helped keep me on track on a regular weekly schedule I never imagined I could pull off.

    This story is primarily about Jimmy and Sawyer. We may get to learn more about Maddie and Doris, but that would be for a later tale if I come up with one. (Never say never. I try to leave openings to jump off from in case I have an idea I can't walk away from.)

    Sorry. Sawyer and Jimmy's story is coming to a close. We've been running weekly since last May and it's time to bring our boys to a good place.

    thank you! I work really hard to answer the important questions in my stories, while leaving just enough open for a future story if a new idea comes to mind.

    I think our new pack is on the right track.

    Thanks! Cleaning up the threads is always a task. I need to make sure I tidy things up before we finish Sawyer and Jimmy's story.

    I love writing strong, female characters that run the gamut of dangerous to clever.
  14. Daylight breaking through the tree canopy teased Jimmy out of a solid sleep. Blinking, he forced out the grogginess as the world came into focus. The room was unfamiliar, but the man in Jimmy’s arms was not. Blankets up to his nose, Sawyer slept like the dead, not even registering Jimmy’s movements. He hadn’t recalled Sawyer dozing so soundly since the night of Irwin’s attack. Jimmy drew the covers down, exposing Sawyer’s shoulder. Pink and freshly healed, a bite scar left a neat ring in the meat of the muscle. The garish rows left behind by Irwin’s jaws had been wiped clean from Sawyer’s
  15. When Jimmy's condition stabilized, Maddie's gaze flitted to the ceiling, a child-like joy on her face. Sawyer knew this woman was his mother, but her behavior made her practically a stranger. In a matter of minutes, she'd gone from ruthless avenger, to focused elder, to flower child. Her eyes retained their wolfen amber, and the rest of her appearance continued to be youthful and pristine. “Mom?” Maddie's every motion floated, reactions delayed a touch. Her focus drifted as if mildly distracted from her usually sober reality. Pausing, she rubbed his shirt collar between her fingers,

    Got my first shot this morning. I guess that means I don't have to respond for four weeks?
  17. Had Sawyer grown up a religious man, he’d pray to have his night vision stricken and block the sight of the hellish carnage strewn across his mother’s backyard. Sweat rolled over his injured body, soaking his clothing as he stepped carefully, avoiding the fresh corpses. He’d never seen a dead person up close before, and now there were so many, he wished he could forget the horrors he’d seen. The smell… he worried it would be tattooed inside his nostrils forever. His and his family’s survival was nothing short of a miracle. And that’s how he saw Jimmy, Maddie, and Jada: as family, insepara

    I don't want to be part of the clean up crew on this one.

    Danners pretty much answered this one. More is on the way. We're not done yet.

    Chapter 40

    this is pretty damn close to what I had in mind. Instinctive like this would function greatly off of intent. So far, only ranks of delta wolves have been swayed by the howl. Jada and Sawyer aren't wolves yet, so being rabid (or potential rabids) would affect them differently.

    I'm hoping to touch on these things and answer a few hanging threads

    There's still more to come so we can see where our cast will go next. It's been hard lately not to reply to comments, but I risked giving spoilers so I had to hold back for the last few weeks. It's nice to be back.
