« on: February 02, 2007, 02:08:35 am »
Hi all,

Testa Dura has started her sequel to 48 Days. It's title is Book of Dreams. This is her summary:

This is the sequel to 48 Days, a Brokeback AU presupposing that Jack was saved from death by a rash act on the part of his son. This led him to make drastic changes in his life and his relationship with Ennis.  Book of Dreams follows Jack and Ennis as they build a life together in Fort Collins, CO.

First chapter:

Afternoon.

Have read the most current chapter, Chapter 8, posted on Brokeback Slash.  Really good sequel; lots of soul-searching for Jack and Ennis as they face Jack's Dad's illness, and Ennis' finally telling his family about Jack and him.  And then there's Bobby and his relationship with Jack as he heads off to college, and then there's their friends at work and how/when to tell them. 

It's also posted on Wranglers.  Hope the author can post the links here, too, so it reaches a wider reading audience.  Recommend it to all.

Hey there,

Did you see the recent notice on testa dura's live journal about the delay of updates for the next week or two.  :(  Well, at least it really does sound like it's a temporary situation.

Thanks for this note, bud.  :)
I was waiting for an update, but didn't check her journal (I'm looking at brokebackslash and wranglers for updates).

Since she normally updates like a clockwork, I'm not worried. I'm sure she will be back like she said.
