High Ground: House of Adair - discussion thread

Post by dogbane » Thu Aug 02, 2012 1:03 pm

Anyone interested in updates, early deleted chapters, or author correspondence can contact me at jamesjimmyadair@yahoo.com

I realize there are readers who are not forum members who cannot send me private messages through the forum and who cannot comment on the thread. Feel free to contact me via the address above. Forum members, too, will find me easier to reach by email than via PM.

Maybe someday I'll go pro and have a website or sumpin.

Thus begins the post removal project. I'm sorry if you have not begun the story. I'll let you know if/when the book is published. Thanks to everyone who has read the novel in part or in whole, and for the feedback I have received. It's been a fun experience.

Any questions or confusions so far?

Our protagonist has been a lucky fellow. I wonder how long his luck will hold out.

Here is a crappy map to give an idea of how this place is laid out:

Concentric lines are contours. The red line is the fence. The OD line is the fall line.

I guess Little Jimmy and James Adair are one and the same...I hope he held on to Pop-Pop's master key.

Yes, this is the one where his great-grandfather died, from the flashback scene.

I'll try to restrain myself. :lol: I want the words to tell the pictures, but I also want to share what I see in more visual ways. I also want to leave some things vague so people will project what they want. For example, I don't specify his weapon besides "rifle" and "carbine".

All right, I'm in.

You can really lay it on with the imagery; I have been enjoying your descriptions of the setting.
