I just read that chapter myself, it´s wonderful!  I´m another newbie ... I couldn´t decide where to post comments yet, here or at TC reader or on the "Rookie" discussion or at the end of each new chapter or everywhere. I´m a mess! But I´m getting there. Clara

Welcome, Clara!  Great to meet you, and I hope to be talking to you soon.

The Long Way Home - is DONE.

Whew!

Now I only have... um... four? more books to edit and who knows how many short stories?

Next is 'The Red Stallion' which is so big I have to decide how to break it into two volumes - and what to call them.
 
Suggestions?

Oh God-I am so far behind-how wonderful!!  ;D

Well-one volume could be "Legbone Blues"  ;) or is that part of A Small Circle of Friends??  :-\
You're the love of my life
And the breath in my prayers
Take my hand, lead me there

I can't forget the taste of your mouth
From your lips the heavens pour out
I can't forget when we are one
With you alone I am free

that is GREAT news!

Regarding suggestions about titles, perhaps the second half of The Red Stallion could be something like, 'Coming Full Circle' - (without giving away plots to new readers)
symbollically for many reasons, in particular more than one character's realization/acceptance of being queer; and literally, for two, round gold reasons....I must say I dreaded reaching the last page of TRS.

Damn I had to leave Ellery in LWH 60 laid up in the hotel sufferin in front of normal people porn, cause I´m pretty much in the same situation right now, minus npp and room service. I can only sit at the computer for work it sucks. So I won´t be reading the last chapters of LWH for a couple of days.

Well, anyway, those Prescott "vacation" chapters were interesting, Lauras reaction especially. I like it that she obviously hasn´t abandoned all hope for a fulfilling sexlife for herself - despite all her religious crap & calling others nasty & whore etc.  Okay, she ain´t dead yet! How she dressed down Steve for his poor performance, that really wasn´t the christian thing to do. Seeing that "perky" look on Colsons face to boot would´ve been too much for me too.
And when he scares her off with something along the lines of "I may not drink as much as I used to, but I still have that temper" I felt for her, cause the more endearing parts of Colsons personality have obviously been for other people. 

Plus: the mysterious Jeeves appears. I´ve already read Chesterfield Fortune, but I still can´t picture him too well. I live in a world of happy stereotypes, so british & gay & stuck up equals Rupert Everett for me, I´ll make do with that for now.

you must be psychic, because Rupert Everett was the favorite in our casting call for Jeeves!

Hang in there, you will get to the rest of Long Way Home soon enough!

That's a much better visual image of Jeeves than the one I get of John Inman from Are You Being Served?  ;D

 :laugh: :laugh:  It sure is.  I think there is still a Rupert Everett/Jeeves picture in the gallery somewhere.  I'll have to look for it.
