The Tears of Mars

Ok, so I've been working on this really great new story called "The Tears of Mars".  Like most of my stories I know all the basic elements, but something I didn't expect is happening - it's sort of turning into a continuation of "The Wizard's Tontine" (one of my favs!).  I had planned on revisiting that tale one day, but certainly not in this story! 

I like how it's turning out so far (not that I have much choice - the story is kind of just finding it's own way), and I know how all the original elements fit in, but it's just not what I expected when I sat down to write.  In many ways I think it's better than the original idea I had, and it definitely helps to bring closure (for me at least) to Tontine. 

I'll be sure to let you all know how it turns out!
