The reason(s) for the delay

My apologies to the fans of Magik Beans for the long hiatus. In the middle of a fairly relaxing summer working at Service Alberta, I was contacted about teaching appointments for this fall. I'm teaching two sections of English at MacEwan College, and one at The King's University College, which is one class short of the light side of a full time sessional teaching load, six being the maximum before you're sent to Arkham. I am also doing my coursework for my PhD in Comparative Literature at the University of Alberta, so I am, as always, very busy.

I wrote the main of Magik Beans book one in my thesis year while I was enjoying the benefits of a scholarship which freed me from the need for gainful employment. So I had an extra hour or two here or there to write. As it currently stands, I'll be lucky if I write an entire episode in a month.

But I am still writing. And making lots of notes while I'm in class! But weekly will be unlikely. Please don't give up on checking in. I'll do my best to make it worth your while.
