Thanks pigfender! Just a few minutes before the hard deadline, I found a problematic line in my submission and sent you an email with the correction. Could you please reflect the amendment in my story? Thanks.

At this point the only corrections made will have to be if I've got anyone's names wrong, I'm afraid!

If it's any consolation, I've read the correction you sent 15 times and can't see what's wrong with the line. You're fine!

FYI, the link in people's NIAD footer is currently broken. The link is sending people to 'novelinaday.com' which does not get you anywhere. Only the 'www.novelinaday.com' version of the address is working.

Definitely worth checking out! :)

I have prepared a web version of Auld Lang Syne, replete with all chapter versions. The site enables you to easily browse, compare, and choose between versions on a chapter-by-chapter basis -- so you can put together your own bespoke edition of this book.

There are there similar choose-your-own-version of the earlier niad novels (for the years that had multiple editions).

Best,
gr

Given that this story was set in Chicago, I thought the images of the frozen Lake Michigan in this tweet might be of interest:
