it definitely wasn't there before. i'm sure of it. and its not on the tech tuesday page. makes you wonder.
as for this week's installment, i was very well able to imagine the discomfort he was having hiding out in a 'brothel'. he's both an innocent and jaded which is quite an interesting combination for a character. i like the wizardy aspects of him, but also that he's completely flummoxed around women (and has a major crush for joules although its also a big brother like protection).
they reset the schedule so there wasn't a Finn Fridays last week. Don't know why. HEY TOPPER, WHAT GIVES?
TALES OF BUFFALO COMMONS is a work in progress, that meaning it's not finished yet. Various parts, sometimes whole chapters have been given out with instructions to follow a certain story framework developed by Gary years ago.
Each writer is given a deadline for their part and most meet it handily but every once in a while circumstances interfere with that.
In this particular case a later installment was in progress when that writer realized if a certain plot point had happened earlier it would open up some interesting opportunities. To accommodate that meant rewriting the installment that was due last Friday.
As our policy is to allow the original writer first stab at rewrites, and as that writer was already busy we had two options, do the rewrites ourselves or delay a week.
We decided to bump the schedule a week. But fear not! We intend the post the entire book, we might have hiccoughs every once in a while but it will happen.
I hope that answers all concerns. Thanks for your Support!
Thanks TOPPER, nice to hear from you again (I thought you guys were all on vacation) I like the way KEEN is progressing and I like the longer installment lengths you've been posting lately, but if you posted the whole book tonight I'd be done reading by Sunday ; )

you know if they were to post this entire book now on a pay site, I'd pay. I can't get over what we've experience so far, I mean think about it! we're only on Chapter 11 and look at all the people we've met, all the places we've been. I've never read a book that told this much story and we're not even half way through it yet! and the worst part is that there's not last page to flip to (not that I think it would help) AARRRGHHHH!

this chapter is so refreshing. it's more drawn out sure but now that the heat's arrived it just feels like the perfect chapter for the weather, i mean i can actually relate to Joule's laying on the ground exhausted. and now that she's at her Starbus, with the same transferred maternal instincts for a "thing" one would normally only see a female character have for a child, well, just gonna say i haven't seen a character this strong since Janeway.
We really had thought we'd posted Finn Fridays before leaving early on Friday. Turns out we hadn't. Thankfully someone caught it during the weekend and we got a rough version loaded, with the proper, authorized one going up just now. Our apologies.
But with that comes an admission that such things might not be an isolated incident this summer.
Titan is a collective of people who work elsewhere in and out of the industry and as such most of us are required to go when and where the jobs are. Lately this has made coordination and authorization of posting material very difficult but its all part of getting the pieces in place to return to full production as we had been.
And for those whose jobs do not require wandering there is the plain and simple: we've entered the season of Vacations and Summer Hours.
But re-assured, if the date is posted on the FINN FRIDAYS page it will have an installment. We'll try hard to avoid a delay like this week but should it happen again remember this one. And the installment is longer than normal too.
Thanks for your loyal readership and we hope you continue to enjoy TALES OF BUFFALO COMMONS, the best is yet to come!

noticed they've extended KEEN an extra installment but it looks like a firm ending because they've already posted JUNE 30 as the start date for LEAGUE Part one. Looking forward to it, the Joules arc has been great but I'm way more interested in Finnegan's Squad!
