A Sorcerer in Downtown Atlanta

David Brighton and Madeleine Saxon have returned to 2017 after surviving their harrowing adventure in Camelot.  But now, the challenges of adapting Maddie to the modern world rear their ugly head.  Even with sorcery on his side, can Dave balance the love of his life with the world he left behind?  And what of his newfound powers?  Will he be able to coast through life with his magic, or are things more complicated than they might appear?

Any chance you could find out what is causing the weird characters between your sentences and get rid of them? It's not as bad as some stories where the quotes and other punctuation is modified, but it's still difficult to read.
Thanks.

After looking at it, I'd suggest it's because auguy has (properly) inserted two spaces between sentences instead of one, and in order for that to show up in HTML code, one of the spaces has to be a special character.  Whatever software he's using apparently chose to use a special character that browsers don't like very much.  (It should have used  )

I cannot fix this myself, so auguy will have to look into it.

I should also point out that you should not have posted this issue here, but instead in the Website Issues section, or emailed the administrator (me) directly.

It's an incredibly nice surprise seeing that you've decided to write a sequel to the story.
Very much looking forward to it!

So I have to say... I am a little sad with this story, not that you wrote it, as the writing is great! Only with the fact it is incredibly short. Also I felt the chapter was... rushed? Not sure if that is the right word, of course, just simply felt more could have been put into the chapter rather then the entire chapter be in a single span of a couple hours.

However! As I already said, the story is great and the writing is awesome. I just felt it could have been a little more.

While the chapter was nice, as I previously mentioned, it was very short. Well done, but short. I also remember you mentioning that several of the chapters are already done. So nothing can be done about the next few chapters.

I do get what you mean, Elessar.  The length of my chapters serves two purposes.  One, I have a tendency to be too verbose sometimes, so I work to not drown my readers in unnecessary details.  Two, they allow me to post semi frequently, I'm hoping weekly for a while.  Thanks for reading, and I'm glad you're enjoying!

I posted here because I was actually directing this toward auguy86 as I figured it was something that could be remedied on his end and this being his latest submission.

I have said this before, and I will say it again:

Never bother the authors with site issues.  ANYTHING that deals with the presentation of the story is a site issue, and it is my job to take care of it.  If that requires contacting the author to bug them to fix something, then I'll do it.  But I'm the only person who is going to know where the problem really lies.  Most authors do not have enough of a grasp of the technical details behind website code to know how to fix any kind of display problem that might come up.  When I contact them, I can give them explicit instructions on things to try in order to fix the issue.  This is why I tell people to contact only me for this kind of thing: it prevents a lot of frustration in the long run.

Was really happy to see this sequel. I like seeing how Maddie is adjusting to the modern world. Like the tease there at the end of latest chapter. A way to find a new teacher perhaps.

I enjoyed the latest few chapters. Liked how the meeting with the agency went. Got a few laughs from me with the presidental reactions.

Important update: the story will continue, but progress has stalled for the time being.  Please check my Twitter page for the full details, @auguy86.  Thank you for your continued support and patience!

So. I love reading. Have read a couple hundred books. Unfortunately that means I see a lot of similarity between books. Unfortunately I have found a big one. I will however not say it and I will let the story play out. As it is a really good story as it’s own item.
