New Life Afterword by me, the author.

     I'd like to thank everybody who has been following this story as it unfolded.  I know at least a few of you would have liked it to last a little longer, just as some of you would have liked it to be a little shorter.  I was somewhat surprised how quickly it all came to me.  The first paragraph came to me at the same time of day that this story started, under similar circumstances that Ben was living with.  I started it with plans to make it a short story, maybe three or four chapters.  Well 30 chapters later, I'm pretty sure no magazine would want to print New Life in its entirety.  I do have plans on marketing it for sale as either an e-book, or a printed book, or both.  At this time though, I am shopping around for my best options, and I plan on doing some rewrites of a few parts of the story.  I may also change the title, as New Life was only meant to be a working title, and not the actual title.  Somewhere along the line I forgot to pick a new name, but that will be remedied by the time I publish this work.  As a very early disclaimer, all names, places, and events, with the exception of the very real Abbott Labs and Botanic Gardens, and of course the tiny town of Avon, WI located in Rock Co., are works of fiction.  Names and associations are purely works of imagination.  Again, thank you all for reading, and stay posted for updates, or regularly scheduled blogging.  Don't forget to spend time with friends and family, enjoy some good eats, enjoy your favorite beverage, listen to some good tunes, and keep a smile on your face!  Peace out, y'all!
