Just to keep my avid readers in the loop. I haven't disappeared. I'm busily writing the next installment in the adventures of the Odyssey crew. The next installment has a confrontation with the Erazi as well as a birthday celebration and some pranks along the way. Real life as been slowing down the progress, but I hope to be finished with the story part soon and then will begin the illustrations. I'll try and post some more character backgrounds when I get a chance.
