In order to list a few more details about my book's final four of six stories, which were not posted publicly, I have decided to list the summaries of each story along with their completion dates for reference and curiosity seekers. The later date for "To Have Loved & Lost" is due to the fact that I heavily revised it after its original completion date in December of 2016. I also realize these summaries are not the greatest or official if used in the book when published, but they should pique interest for anyone curious to know what the stories will involve.
