Dryad - 'A Dream of Awakening' begins here!

I don't know why it is, but I almost feel more anxious about releasing this second Tales from Outside The Circle story than I did with the initial one, The Wilds Will Bide.  Don't ask me why that is, because I really don't know why! Maybe it has to do with this being 'that difficult second album,' or maybe it's because the release of this second story makes the reality of what I am trying to do that much more concrete. It's almost as if by doing this second story, there's no turning back! But I don't have a fear of that at all. I guess it's just a plain old fear of falling flat on my face with a property that nobody has any interest in looking at. Now that is quite scary.

But anyway, all I can say is that this 8-page story contains my heart and soul. I didn't leave anything off the drawing board here, I just dove right in and gave it everything I had. I'm pretty happy with the resulting work and I hope you find it enjoyable to read and look at.

So I'm going to be releasing this 8-page story at the rate of one page a day. This is an entirely vacuous and marketing-minded ploy to get as much traffic coming to this site as I possibly can. I'll make no bones about it! It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I haven't quite finished all of the pages just yet... nothing at all.
On the eighth and final release day, there will also be the accompanying 8-page PDF of the story released as well, so it can be easily read in one convenient spot.

But that's quite enough of my prattling on! Here now, for your reading pleasure is page 1 of...

I'll be back tomorrow with page 2 and perhaps a little bit more information about this mysterious creature of the woods.
See you then!
