All Maggie Kelly wanted was a quiet life. She came from out east, looking for a fresh start, and somehow ended up worse off. Her husband, Rían, works as a low-paid junior constable for the Bytown magistrate, which puts him in harm’s way more than she’d like. But despite the chaos all around them, Maggie and Rían find comfort in each other, and the little sliver of civility in an unruly world.
But not for long.
Bytown releases a new chapter every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from March to November, 2020. The story is broken into "episodes" (13 chapters each), culminating in an explosive finale. While most of the writing is done well in advance, I'm leaving room to adapt and finesse the text in response to audience feedback--so feel free to react!
