Many of the negative comments were based in fear: mostly fear of pirates finding it, copying it, and publishing (mostly e-publishing) it as their own.
So, here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to post each chapter for a while, then take it down.
So, this is the Prologue, or perhaps it will be inserted somewhere in the middle. Haven't decided yet. As I mentioned above, this is a rough draft. It's a little bit of back story, but mostly characterization.
It's really rough.
Before it is published, I'll fine-comb it for spelling and grammar and all that. Don't worry about that.
Beyond nit-picks, I'd love to know what y'all think. Feel free to leave your comments or email me.
This is the first time I've tried throwing rough drafts out there, and so the caveat is: this is a ROUGH DRAFT. It's pretty close to a FIRST DRAFT.
And here it is:
