The Blasted Lands, Update

I wanted to update the links page I did a while back. I really should have done this at the beginning of the latest book. The series has grown more than I wanted, but at least I think I know how it is going to end. There is one book added from the last update post. ufortunatley an edit pass means that I am in a race with the current book being postes

I want to point out that the chapters here are my raw writing. There will be spelling errors and possible inconsistencies. Later event in the stories may force changes in the earlier books. Most of the books do not have their prologues written as yet, with all sorts of good stuff. I hope to have the edited versions on kindle soon. Where things will go from there is a mystery even to me at this point.
