A big thanks, and the next snippet
Before I get to the story snippet, I just want to send out my deep gratitude to everyone who has supported so far! We have officially met (and surpassed) our funding goal! Of course, you can still back the project until funding closes next Saturday (Oct. 22), so you still have time to order your copy if you haven't been able to so far!
Once the funding duration is complete, I will send a message to all of the project backers to collect mailing addresses, and I will be sending out the copies shortly thereafter!
Now, on with the story!
Just as he rounded the next bend, Richard spotted the sign he’d been searching for. “Mira Cove Campground” it read, with a faded arrow pointing left. Following it, Richard turned off the highway onto a narrow gravel road which pierced its winding path through the trees and down the steep hill toward the lake. A few turns into the trees, he passed a wooden gate with the words, “Mira Chateau”, nailed across in an arc of wrought-iron letters.Mira Chateau was a slight play on words with the surname of the campground owner, which happened to be Chateau. Richard had made reservations with Mrs. Chateau two weeks earlier and caught the wordplay.
