For a variety of reasons, I've decided to concentrate on editing "Remember Him" and my mainstream novel, which has been sadly neglected. This means shelving "The Adored One" indefinitely. Reaction to the story was luke-warm anyway, so I'm not that concerned.
I'm sorry to disappoint anyone who was particularly taken with "Adored." Maybe sometime down the road, I'll pick it up again.
Thank you all for following my sporadic progress. Crossing my fingers and hoping "Remember Him" will be accepted by someone and "Not Human Enough" will follow. I'll keep you updated.
