As an additional note, I have a couple questions for people who are reading along. If you're willing to be a sort of question guinea-pig, give me an "Agree" to this post, and I'll probably contact you via IM to run things past you here and there. No spoilers, promise.

Just finished Chapters 4 & 5.

I think Oryx meant, by "bulk it up", that she'd like to see thicker chapters? I know I'd be up for seeing that, too.

Good stuff again, looking forward to the next installment(s)!

If you're still awake, you get the pleasure of being one of the first to read Chapter 6 of Dark Mercury! You'll be the envy of all your friends (or at least of Oryx Tempel and Kick Frenzy, maybe Spaceman Opus...some others...).

Get to it while the getting is good! Be in before the morning's whoring!

And yes, the plot is moving. Starting with the next chapter (which is about 30% meatier than the others, incidentally), we'll start getting more action.

Shh, it's a secret that Chapter 7 has been published yet!

Okay, it's not a secret any more. But I'm still going to whore it out in the morning.

Hey, Augie here to whore himself out a little more.

Chapter 7: Read it.

Also, as if me whoring myself out isn't good enough, I'd like to officially invite all of you to be my literary pimps as well. Since it seems like I'm in a good writing flow, I'm wanting to push the site out to a broader audience.

If you like it enough to pass it around, feel free to link it anywhere you think might be relevant and interested.

If you haven't read it, but like me well enough ( ), feel free to do the same.

If you want me to STFU already, that's cool too.

ETA: If you DO share it around somewhere, and let me know where, I'll offer you some manner of thank-you gift.

Chapter 8 is now up to join Chapter 7 in all its...chapterness. The last chapter was a bit darker, this chapter is a bit lighter.

As always, feedback appreciated, either in this thread, over IM, comments on the website. Hell, I'll give you my phone number if you want to talk about it the old-school way.

But in the meanwhile, read up.

Yet more self-serving : Chapter 9 is now posted at Dark Mercury, so go enjoy the hell out of it.

This chapter was HUGE and ungainly (almost twice as long as previous chapters have been), and I spent all night whipping it into shape. Enjoy!

Whew! Finally read Chapter 8, then 9. Good stuff, some nice developments throughout and... the lock tech on that briefcase was awesome!

And don't worry, the thicker Chapter 9 didn't come off as any kind of a lumbering beast at all... more like a bigger, juicier steak! Mmmmm... steak.
Looking forward to the next installment, as always.

Well, that is (at least in part) because I bludgeoned it from about 5,500 words down to 3,500. I've been a little sick, and when I'm sick, I start to ramble...whether talking or writing.

In a perfect world, I'd be updating Monday/Wednesday/Friday, and you'd get moar. Two chapters a week is proving a pretty aggressive pace as it is, though.

But this time, it's because I forgot to mention that Chapter 9 has two special, secret tributes to Second Citizen in it. Let me know if you catch them

Ok Auggy, I ran out of quarter for the 1-900-AUGGY-LUV and started reading. You are soliciting feedback but I want to know honestly how critical you want me to be. I was both hated and loved in my college creative writing club for my critical reviews.

Ooh, that's a challenging question.

I think that, on the whole, I'm very open to harsher criticism. That being said, while I'm not hoping to keep the comments on the site pristine and complimentary, I do worry a bit about the possibility of being lambasted by an expert scaring first time readers away.

Maybe something like this: If you want to tear into me (which I invite, actually), maybe send it to me in a PM or an email. If it's basic criticism and suggestions, I'd love for it to be on the site, so that others can chime in.

I know that by posting first drafts in relative realtime (Ch9 was more like version 1.5), I'm opening myself up for such assessment, though, which is one of the main reasons why I made the blog...I want to get better.

So, bring it...one way or the other. And thanks.

You talked about a coffee shop in Rogers Park - I wondered if you were talking about the UncCommon Cup...

Ah, Houlihan's is gone? That's good to know...I asked another friend from Chicago to double-check my Chicago-isms, but maybe I should recruit you as well.

And technically, I was referring to the long-gone No Exit Café. I used to live a block from there, and it was where I wrote my first novel (an "epic" high fantasy adventure... ). I'm not naming it, but I *am* pretending it is still there.

All that being said, I *did* choose 111 E. Wacker for a plot-related reason that is NOT the Hyatt.

Oh! Duh! I see it now!

The "geeky club" which I'm guessing the atmosphere is written to match our very own Bunker/forums.

Errr you know what? According to google maps it's still there, so ignore what I said

ETA: Google maps also says No Exit is still there - it's a block away from the Common Cup I *thought* it sounded familiar.

No Exit is kind of still there, but it is a performance space for The Heartland Cafe...which I hear is also having financial trouble now.

I kind of dream about going back to Chicago to reopen the original No Exit someday.

I just wanted to say a quick "thank you" to everyone who has taken the time to read through my online-novel so far, and a second "thank you" to all of those who have given feedback.

The number of site views has been steadily climbing, and this is something I hope continues (or at least stays at a nice, high level) for as long as possible. You folks here have been a big part of my views, and I'm loving that. I may (still an outside shot at this point, though) have made a really valuable contact from this exercise, too.

Chapter 10 will be going up later this evening, and I'm considering throwing in a couple of small character studies on separate pages (outside of the main flow of the book) for people who might like a little more information.

But the support from you guys has rocked.

Well, Chapter 10 is posted now. It's a little shorter than the previous chapter, but considering the contents of this one, I felt like it needed to stay the way it is rather than be unnecessarily embellished.

Click here to go directly to Chapter 10.

Click here to go to the main site if you've got catching up to do.

I'll make it up to you, length-wise, in Chapter 11, promise.

Hey, it's not the length of your, uhm, chapter that matters, it's how you use it.
