SCARS OF YESTERDAY is Michelle MilesÂ romance serial following the lives of three sisters and their dying father published through http://www.KeepItComing.Net. When high powered casino owner and hotelier Murphy Jackson learns he has cancer, it spurs him into action to contact his three estranged daughters who have no knowledge of each other. The story follows Faith, who is looking for Mr. Right and just wants to live happily ever after; Hope, who is trying to escape the horrors of her own loveless marriage to an alcoholic man; and Destiny, a young mother who mourns her youth and struggles to raise her son alone.
Issue 135 marks the final issue and just over one yearÂs worth of subscriptions. The author says she has a sense of accomplishment and sadness, too. ÂIÂve spent so much time with these characters, itÂs going to be hard to let them go.Â When asked whatÂs next for this story, Ms. Miles said she would consider developing it into three novels or novellas. ÂI think IÂd really like to take it to the next level. IÂd like to see each sisterÂs story stand alone in novel format.Â
Ms. Miles plans to begin revisions at a later date as she continues to write her other popular, award-winning time-travel serial, THE ADVENTURES OF RANSOM & FORTUNE. ÂIt was a challenge writing two at the same time,Â she laughs. ÂIÂm grateful for the experience. I wanted to challenge myself, to see if could write by deadline.Â
ÂOf course. IÂm sure you have some questions.Â
ÂYes, I do.Â She mulled them over as they started down the sidewalk. ÂLike, why did he wait until now to contact me? And why does the salutation read Dear Daughters Â plural? Do I have a sister? Or two? Hell, maybe I have three sisters. Who the hell knows? I havenÂt seen the man in twenty years.Â She knew she rambled, but her nerves couldnÂt stop her. ÂI never saw him again after my mom divorced him and we moved to Texas. She never spoke of him except on occasion when she was cursing his name.Â
ÂYouÂll have to ask him those questions for yourself, Faith,Â he said.
ÂThatÂs not very helpful.Â She frowned, reading the letter again as they walked. ÂMy future and fortune waits? And IÂm supposed to go with you wherever you take me. Just where might that be?Â
ÂLas Vegas,Â Jarrett said. ÂWe leave tomorrow.Â
Faith stopped mid-stride, gaping at him. She couldnÂt believe her ears. Leave tomorrow? What about her job? Her apartment? Her cat, for GodÂs sake? Was she supposed to just pick up and leave all of that behind on a whim? Because her long lost father asked her to? She shook her head.
ÂI canÂt do that. I have responsibilities here,Â she said. ÂMy job is important to me.Â
ÂHeÂs well aware of that. HeÂs willing to pay out the lease on your apartment and you can even bring your cat with you. As for your job, youÂll need to give your resignation.Â
