Semi chaotic last few days, so let's see what I can dig up for this week.

We'll do Minecraft first (mostly because my brain is goo and I'm having a hard time remembering where te swtor folder is. Waaaahhhh!)


Cool wall from Drew made of sandstone and wooden steps. Now that steps will go in more than one direction, it really does open the possibilities!


Cow from the mushroom biodome. Yes, those are mushrooms growing on its back. Creepy, no?


Seems you can color a sheep's wool while it is on the sheep and the sheep will always grow that color wool from then on. The kids have all sorts of colors going on.



And there are kittys now too! Seemingly will help keep creepers away. But they meow constantly. (Really weird having cats meowing at me from both the headset/speakers and around me in RL.



I find this so weird when it happens. 


Orange tabby!


My siamese! In the wild they look like cheetahs, but when you feed them fish and they love you, they randomly turn into a house cat variety. The cheetahs seem quite plentiful in the jungle biodomes.


The son-in-law found a realistic texture pack called Misa's. Love what it does to the torches. From here on down it's all this texture pack. As you can see the Siamese looks more like a real cat now.


No idea what that used to be or is now! lol


The sun is back to being round and the tree leaves are more prominent.


Love the look on the wooden doors!


Sun at sunset. Look at that corona.


The rising moon. You can see my road running off into the distance. Heh heh.


Ah, here are the few Star Wars pics I made. (John felt bad during the day, then I got sick last night so didn't get to play but a few minutes. Waaaah! Weird weekend.)


Not 100% sure, but I believe that is the Balmorra space station. Weirdly enough, now that my spy finally left Balmorra and got sent to Nar Shaddaa, the opposite has happened to my Jedi! lol.


I do so love these 3D maps.


The poorest parts of Nar Shaddaa. Only got a peek.


That's it for this week! Enjoy!

Novels


JEWEL OF THE GODS

(2015) Fantasy

The King is Dead! Long Live the Undead King!


Excerpt:
"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."





INNER DEMONS

(2014) Urban Fantasy

It took everything from her, except revenge!


Excerpt:
The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."



THE PRICE OF MERCY

(2011) Young Adult – Fantasy

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Excerpt:

Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.




CROSS-EYED DRAGON TROUBLES
(2007) Young Adult – Fantasy
“Harry Potter meets Dragon Riders of Pern”

Excerpt:

“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.



WILLING SACRIFICE
(2008) Young Adult – Fantasy
“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”

Excerpt:

Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”



IN THE SERVICE OF SAMURAI
(2002) Adult/YA – Japanese Fantasy Adventure
“The Last Samurai meets Pirates of the Caribbean”

Excerpt:

Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.



VASSAL OF EL
(2004) Adult/YA – Fantasy Mystery
“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”

Excerpt:

Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
