It's done!  Yes--Mina's story is finally complete! :)

As a new writer (or an old writer if you go by what my driver's license says) there's always a niggling fear that somehow the story will dry up before you can finish telling it.  Heck, maybe all writers feel that way, but as a NEW writer I don't have any proof that it's just my own fear and not really, truly, the end of the world.

I was so excited by the conclusion that I went back and re-did the covers on the earlier installments so that all three parts would look nice together--

And the newest title Making Mina: Compromising Positions

Compromising Positions is approximately 22K words--the longest installment so far--and tells the story of Mina and Marco in Italy.  Our couple finds themselves having to deal with misconceptions, mistrust, and misery. There's a lot of drama, but that's what makes it exciting, right?

I have heard from several people that they like the story but they hate the format.  Serials are annoying, expensive, and they hate having to wait for the next "chapter." For those readers I have gathered the complete story together in one place-- Making Mina: The Collection.  

(Now my best friend can stop grumbling about having to flip through listings to read the whole story :). )

I hope you all enjoy these updates as much as I have enjoyed creating them.  Every day that I get to put something new out into the world is a great day.  Thanks for coming along for the ride with me!
