I have, as of this writing, just completed posting Chapter Sixteen of The Promised King, in which our heroes race against time through a wood where some dark things lie. (I know, I know, a standard epic fantasy trope, the dark wood where dark things lie. Sue me!)
Go forth and read; and if you need catching up, all of the other chapters are available there as well. Look under "Contents" at the left, and all shall be forgiven.

UPDATE: I have just completed the task of removing the blogroll from the sidebar and into a post inside the blog itself. The blogroll post is dated yesterday, August 20, so you can just scroll down to see it; but the link to tbe blogroll is here and you can also find it linked in the sidebar, in the section just under the self-photos.
