This is the start of a new book, which I don't think will turn into more than one (but you never know). This was posted originally earlier this year but it wasn't done and it wasn't going anywhere. I'm finally getting to a place mentally where I'm willing and able to write again so I'm starting this over. The Prologue (or 0x00) is exactly the same as it was the first time and a lot of what gets posted over the next couple of weeks will be similar in many regards to what was up last time. I will, however, be slowing the story down a little bit so there will definitely be new parts mixed in with the old/original. My goal is to post a new chapter ever 3 or 4 days but no less than once a week. I'm sure that once I really get into the swing of things (likely by the end of the book/story) I'll be able to post more frequently and more consistently. Comments are welcome throughout including corrections, flow and consistency issues, questions for clarity (but I won't reveal spoilers), etc. I'm going to take a page from Christopher's book (heh, see what I did there?) and offer free digital copies of the final, edited product to anyone who offers constructive criticism, edits, corrections, etc. I hope you enjoy and while it's scary for me to jump back into this, it's also a lot of fun. That being said...won't you take a walk with me?
