This is the last episode I'll be posting. It's been a wonderful experience and I
deeply appreciate the support of all the readers who have followed A&A. It's
been a great motivator for me to hear from you while the work was in progress.
Now, in preparation for submitting the story to a publisher, I am halting the
posting of new episodes and in one week (on 11/13/9) I will be taking all of the
Ameranth & Ash episodes down from my website.

The latest episode of my unedited novel in progress is up today on Friskbiskit:
http://www.friskbiskit.com/2009/10/ameranth-ash-10.html

Ameranth & Ash (working title) is a futuristic X-M/M. Ameranth is a vasai, born with both male and female characteristics, and the ability to heal. Ash is a chel, a member of the underclass. Ash gets caught where he's not supposed to be and is brutally punished for it, but when Ameranth brings him to his home and heals him, that is really breaking all the rules. What begins as an act of compassion grows into a bond of love and ignites sparks that could set Ameranth and Ash's whole world on fire.
