A brief note those who check this space regularly:
Your attention will be rewarded. I have completed my Human pair-bonding ritual and have time available again to write. The first chapter of a new Empyrean story should be posted within the next week. After that, though, no promises about a timeline. The next month includes another fascinating human custom: our honeymoon. It might be late May before I'm able to post again.
We still have a couple of interesting projects simmering in the background, but both dishes require full completion before they can be served. I'll leave that as a riddle to be answered whenever that presentation finally occurs. We hope it's worth the wait.
