*****AUTHOR'S NOTE*****

First off, no I am not dead, just extremely busy. I am sooooooo sorry to have to put another one of these notices for not having updated in months. I know it's summer (well, at least it still is for me) but I work full time and have been busy with other things. I have half of the next chapter written so it should be out not too long from now. Again, I cannot tell you how sorry I am about how long this is taking!!

Also, I am looking for a beta-reader. If you would be interested in this, please e-mail me at valkyrieangel67@cox.net.

Thank you for your time!!
