No he wrote Chapter 4 intending it to be Chapter 3, then decided to write something in between turning Chapter 3 into 4. He is working on the new Chapter 3.

James is correct, Chapter four was originally going to be Chapter three but I had an inspiration while I was editing it.  so I have decided to place a Penelope focused chapter between 2 and 4.   I hope you are enjoying the story.

Special Thanks to the person for the anonymous tip to change "Mondu" would be written "Mon Dieu".

I have corrected this in Chapter 4

will post chapter 3 soon, it's about 50% complete now.

Sorry readers,

I have decided to postpone the posting of Cabal Chapter five.   
I am new to writing and still refining my editorial process.  Last night I received some valuable advice and I am going to incorporate it into my workflow. 

CH 5 is written, 
CH6 is 60-70%   

I will post Ch 5 "Easy Rider" as soon as I complete my new Editorial process, this is in an effort to tighten up my writing and deliver more value to you dear reader.

just finished the first draft of Chapter 6, it's darker, way darker than Chapter 3, but really sets us up for the conclusion of Act 1,  Will probably post sometime next week after I have had some time to fine tune it a bit.

Whatever the "Buy Me a Coffee" link is meant to be, it's broken.  On every chapter.  I'd say check the address and retype it here.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, do not bring technical issues to the attention of the authors: bring them to the attention of the administration, through the contact form on the main site, or by emailing me directly.  Especially with something like this, it is likely that the author will not have the technical knowledge to know how to fix the problem.

In this case, I diagnosed the problem.  The author has used a relative URL instead of an absolute URL in his link, and that won't work.  What he included was:

Code:

<a href="buymeacoff.ee/NvnXxh10l">Buy Me a Coffee</a>

Note the missing "http://www." part.  The server will "recognize" this as a local file, not as a website (because "buymeacoff.ee/NvnXxh10l" is a perfectly legitimate Linux directory and filename...)  What he meant to use was the following:

Code:

<a href="http://www.buymeacoff.ee/NvnXxh10l">Buy Me a Coffee</a>

This tells the server to look out on the rest of the internet for what's being asked for.  In any case, here's the link you need: Buy Him a Coffee

Thanks DC and Eric, 

sorry, my mistake. and the funny thing is .... I do have the technical know-how, I just totaly missed that LOL.

I hope you are all enjoying the story so far.   I have been struggling with the next chapter "Surrogate Serum" for a week or two now.  I should have it out soon as soon as I managed to tame a few personal demons.

No worries, we all goof up from time to time.  My technical explanation wasn't so much for your benefit (though if you'd needed it, there it was...), it was to show others how complicated web-page coding can be, so that they'll understand why I tell them not to bother the authors with this stuff.

But since you know how, get off your butt and fix it!  LMAO  big_smile  just kidding.
