Epilogue

Submitted: March 05, 2018


Just want to say that I’m glad so many have read Jackrabbit. I’ve written it three times now, and I plan on rewriting it several more before I consider it good enough to publish. It’s not quite up
to my standards yet — not even close. But I appreciate all those who loved it.


As for the ending, it’s up to you whether you think Rachel came back or not. Personally, I’m working on a sort of sequel, but I won’t tell which outcome leads to it. Right now I’m busy with my
screenplays, but I do appreciate it. Thanks to all of you.
