Thank you! I fixed it.
I re-read "The Ropers" a couple of months ago, and I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed writing that one. The idea is based on a local band (very definitely not country) where the popular woman vocalist was effectively split from the band. Janie not "being" country was able to recognize what she owed as she grew. I think if she'd gone the path suggested by Danny Charles (bet you can't guess where that name comes from 🙂 ) she'd have been at the mercy of promoters in Nashville. As it is, she may well still make it to the big time, but she'll have a much more solid base to keep her balance, and the guys with her, who probably wouldn't have gotten there without her, will get the recognition they deserve, too.
You'll notice I finally cleaned up all the spam. I've postponed visiting for too long. I'm about to post the closing (maybe?) story in the Helenverse series. Though there will be more Step-Something, and who knows, there may be more offshoots in the future.
