Chapter 40: Rally Me.

David meets those that are willing to fight at his side, and they make preparations to march on the Lurk and his army of Soulless.

Special Announcement:
Next week, October 15th, I will post the remainder of The Sum of David online. It will be available in its entirety until November 1st, at which point I will take all but the first three chapters down.

My plan to send query letters in September took a back seat to my obligations to the 24 Hour Creative Marathon. I don’t have any regrets about that - since the only time constraints at the moment are my own - but I would very much like to begin the journey of seeking representation. I think having a site for the novel is a good thing, and could conceivably be an added boon to a potential agent. However, I doubt it is in my favor that a complete manuscript is available, even if it is simply a working draft.

Nevertheless, there is a readership that returns each week to read the new chapter, and I don’t think it would be right to pull it all from the web without giving those readers the opportunity to find out how it all ends. In fact, I believe the lump resolution will ultimately compliment the ending. Hopefully, the two week window will catch everyone that has any desire to read it.

More on this next week.
