I know. It’s coming in the next update. I felt (once the chapter was completed) that including the next two scenes distracted from the rest of Chapter 36, all of which is important to what’s about to go down. You won’t have to wait long for the next update. It’s going up on December 20th. […]





…and we’re back!

And almost fully functional. I’m still working out the kinks in the whole subscription process (I know several of you have mentioned you’re not receiving alerts) but that should be the only area of the site not functioning. Though I haven’t been posting, I’ve been been writing quite a bit. The update schedule for Fall […]

About the New Chapter…

I began writing Chapter Thirty-One of Fall to Ruin One Day on November 7, 2010. Though details changed during this time, but the main events remained the same.
