The forward that wasn't

So I'm working on August and Anderson today.  I had written a forward, then I deleted it because I was just going to do something else... and when I opened it today, I hadn't saved the deletion.

I almost signed a contract with a publisher too. It was an incredibly intense contract.  I'd really rather just keep my stories between you and me. Maybe my stories won't be quiet as easy to read. Maybe they might be more perfect if a publisher were to have a hand in their production. I don't know. I know that they're going to be what they're going to be and I'm going to bring them to you as fast and inexpensively as I can. I still need to make a living, pay my rent, pay my tuition, and I really like food. I'd like to see a dentist sometime soon. So I hope I'm able to tell a story that's worth a couple bux each to you all.  I'm really torn over whether it would be better to just post here on my blog and ask people to throw coins in my box like a story teller on the street, or just stick with ebooks on Amazon. Opinions? And paperbacks, of course.

Maybe I'll try both. Run the story here, with the option of making a donation, buy a tee-shirt, or something, and the option to buy the book as an ebook as well, so you get it all in one piece, no google adverts, no clicking from post-to-post?

The preface that got cut:

Note from Sebastian

Hello most awesome people!

OHH so many things have been on my mind. King Arthur, anarchy, equality, why people behave in strange ways, being part of a group... all good things, mostly.

I've also discovered I'm not an English major. A couple of my classes were fantastic, but one of them was just utterly ruinous. I told the teacher of that class that I'd dedicate a book to them if they could improve my writing. This is as close as that got. Allegations and pompous flouncing about one someone else's part does not constitute improvement on my part, unless we think that increasing my stats in cynicism is an improvement. There are some people who might think so.

A friend of mine brought me a very cool Minato figure. I love Minato. He's Naruto's father. If you don't know who Naruto is, you should look him up, then we can talk about him. I ordered the new Frozen Teardrop books too, the new Gundam Wing story.

So now for August and Anderson... these stories are hardly in order. I'm not done writing them. I'm going to put what I have into a book. If people like them, I'll probably get more of their stories done. I have so many stories to write.

Why the ramble? I don't know. I guess I just wanted to talk to you. If you're here, and you like my stories, then we're kind of family, you know? If you're here and you don't like my stories *scratches head*, I guess we're still family. If you don't like my stuff, I can recommend some other stuff... I had to read a hack and slash with pretensions of historical accuracy this term. ZAM and Ethan Day are both a hell of a lot better than me. You should look them up. This set of stories isn't going to take itself so seriously. You shouldn't either. Be good to you, ne? So - if you're still reading, let's, you know... get on with the story.

“Are you lost,” he asked, voice amused, deep and as comfortable being in the shadow. Panting, the red silk of her gown moved against the curve of smooth breast, The same gown hugged her waist, slowed down behind her almost like a wedding train, but in the brightest red. Violet eyes stared up at him, trying to decide if he were a friend. The question was hard to answer. “I....” He leaned a little, his smile confident, engaged. Dark eyes seemed to swallow her whole as if she were a sugar cube melting in his champagne. “Well, what is it, my pretty cardinal?” Almost as if compelled, as if tell him the truth were her most sweetest desire, she admitted, “I came in with the offering girls because I’m looking for my brother. I think the king is holding him because he’s a journalist and an activist for democracy.” Both her hands covered her mouth, those violet eyes wide with shock. “You think the king keeps political prisoners,” he said, on ha…

“You’re right. There is definitely something there,” Hilde said. On the bridge of their little salvage craft, she touched the data display, the 3d image of the ice shelf they were exploring.
They were, technically, getting paid to disperse oceanographic sensors for the University of Tokyo. Doing a little salvage on the side was just a perk.
“What’cha think it is?” Duo asked, pulling his wet suit up over his shoulders. His hair was growing out again and was down past his shoulders if it wasn’t in a ponytail. Silver touched his temples, metallic and shimmery. Anti-aging technology kept him in peak condition, looking early twenties, at oldest. Anticipating his swim, the gills on the side of his throat opened, tingling pleasantly.
“Early plane, like fuck,” Hilde said. While she had always had a couple years on him, it didn’t show at all. Her hair was flame red curls now. One eye was completely artificial, thoug…

As a side note, my blog now has all 13 chapters of Dark Wolf in one post.

The current ‘safe house’ had been a shipping container at some point in its life. Now buried under a landfill like a hobbit hole with door that used to be a refrigerator it had made a fine home for several months. Power came from solar collectors as well as thermal from sensors sunk deep into the raging pile of trash. The floor was a mosaic of broken glass grouted with some strange gunk that Quatre had mixed up, which made it smooth and pebbly.
The table had the top of a boxy car from way before any of them were born, cut off and mounted in the floor so that it looked like the had just sunk into the floor. Duo and Quatre had been drunk when the table got made. It still generated snickers.
They had a washing machine made out of a large spent artillery casing and an engine from something that had…
