Keeper is a novel I wrote years ago, and figured it would never amount to much, but I enjoyed it, and several friends enjoyed it. Then I wrote sequels, several of them. But one day, I got the notion Keeper could be so much more – so I completely reinvented the series. Shaving 30,000 words from the original and shifting the entire plot, then I remapped the sequels and turned them into totally new stories that continued the newly rewritten adventure.
