After a three week hiatus, The Armored Satchel, my World War II spy thriller oJukePop Serials, returns! Chapter 39 went up yesterday. This is one of the most emotional chapters yet, and sets up the endgame. Max receives his instructions for what may well be the final mission of his spy career: helping a top Soviet intelligence agent defect to the United States. But in order to carry out his mission Max must pay a terrible personal price. Will he choose to go ahead with the mission, or will be stay with Tiago, his boyfriend? Find out in this emotionally wrenching chapter!

As you can tell both from the chapter itself and my summary, The Armored Satchel is nearing its end. After almost a year of writing it, the espionage saga of Max Volcker is finally heading toward its conclusion. While I haven’t specifically outlined the end of the story yet, I project there will probably be 3 or 4 more chapters. I’ll be counting on all the fans who have stuck with the story for the past year to publicize it and vote.

The serial is now within striking distance of 1000 votes! Please, if you’ve read the story and haven’t voted for every chapter, I’d really appreciate the votes. JukePop is changing the way they tally the Top 30, and I need as many votes as I can get in February to stay in the rankings. Thanks as always for everyone’s support.
