I finished the first draft last Friday (just like my boss <me> wanted). It took me a couple of days to whittle things down. I didn't want the ending to be overly dramatic. I think I hits it right, but I guess I won't know until you tell me.
Here's what I want to say as I conclude this most recent journey: THANK YOU for letting me show a little bit of my spiritual side. I'm usually a "keep your trap shut about 'that' stuff" kinda guy, but I really felt that telling a story through Daniel got my feelings out too. Thanks for allowing me to share, and thanks for continuing to keep me in line :)
Last, based on your feedback, I'm going to start The Loyalist, the second book of The Patriot Protocol series next. Here's a first look at the cover and then you can get started with the ending of Tested. Enjoy!
