Intriguing take on the deserted island genre. Well paced with the classic Rawly elements.
Found this after reading Cursed Recollections, fantastic writing once again!
Yes, people wanted a continuation of that story, and this seemed like a way to do that.
I am most definitely a fan of this one.
Can’t wait for this story to be picked up again.
This was a commission from a long time ago (when I used to do commissions). The commissioner had to leave suddenly. I have no plans to continue this story without him.
Hi, I think maybe you could pick up this story, Lance should go back with his mother and family to the city and continue to enjoy his mother while he begins to take his sister and the sexy neighbor with his daughter. Just to give an idea.
Continuing this story will be an option when one of my main novel slots open up.
I know there are illustrations in this story, but I can’t see them in either version. Is that one elsewehere?
I didn’t upload some of the old stuff JDseal and I made, but maybe I should. I’ll add them today, look for those chapters in the illustrated section.
Okay, Curse of the Shadow illustrated is live.
I hope there will be a follow up soon because it is a great story, as always.
The option will be available in a vote at some point.
I cannot see their family going back to normal. Once Emily allowed her son inside, that was it.
Well, yes. Things certainly won’t go back to normal.
This is a terrific story. It’s up there with “Dark Stone”. I’d love it if there were more chapters of this.
The commissioner will give me an outline for six final chapters, so we’ll hold a vote to see if we continue this story when it’s time to start something new.
I think the links are broken. They go to Enki’s Puzzle and Coyote’s Trick.
I screwed up the links when I was updating them yesterday. Thanks for letting me know. It’s fixed now.
I really wish this story had continues.
Sorry! The commissioner disappeared and don’t want to continue it without him.
That sucks I love this story and would love to see where it goes
Yea Bring it back! Where is the Commissioner at!
For those that don’t know, Diesel is the commissioner. And he’s back …
I’ll explain when it’s time for a new story, but he’s giving me an outline for the final six chapters (text only). When readers vote on a new story, the option to finish Curse of the Shadow will be part of the poll.
