To those it may concern:

Well, first of all, thanks for reading this. As you know, I haven't published anything since the tail end of January. I know, I had a good turn going. Well, as things do on occasion, everything came to a screeching halt. I haven't touched ChangeDay: Advent since then, nor my more acclaimed Dream Come True. Of course, this is not because I didn't want to or that writer's block caught me.

How would you react if all of the sudden everyone around you began a fifteen-minute-long metamorphosis from one sex to the other, including yourself, only to learn that it isn't an isolated incident but happens worldwide? Then, exactly twenty-eight days later, the whole thing happens again, only in reverse. Over several years, humanity will adapt and this sort of thing will become common place. But, we witness this crucial advent through the eyes of an average American teenager, Micheal MacAllister, and learn how he copes with the fact that for half his life he will now be known as Mekayla.
