Dear Readers–

I hope you’ve been enjoying the stories about Gloaming Gap and it’s … erm … residents? … as much as I have. For those who haven’t been keeping track, Andrea Cumbo’s just-completed story, “The Spinster’s Secret”, was our 13th story, marking just over a year since this site came into existence. (By the way, I will be posting Andi’s story in its entirety here within the next day or two; sorry for the delay!) In addition to her work, I’d like to also extend a special thanks to the rest of those who have contributed to our little town: Beth Dombach, George Buss, Susan Pogorzelski, Vicky Burkholder, and a very special thanks to my wife, Jeannine.

We’ve got some significant life events happening within the next month or two, so I decided it might be a good idea to take a little bit of a breather here in July, but fear not: More everyday stories featuring less-than-everyday characters will be just around the corner. In the meantime, feel free to browse through the previous stories. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we’ve enjoyed writing them.

Until next time…
–Jeff Burkholder, Editor
