Let's see how much virtual trouble I got into this week. :P

Still on Balmorra on the Republic side at Bug Town.

The bugs main spawning spot. It was eerie, especially with the ooze coming down all the time.

That's the queen guarding her kiddies. 

Back here, there's a datacron behind the dude below. We figured there must be a back way to get to it, but got distracted and forgot to look once we got outside before going off world. :(

This dude looked super duper nasty, so we left him alone.

My Imp spy on Nad Shaddaa. I found these posters rather interesting. 

One of the less reputable areas. Still a ton of neon.

Camp site for a set of baddies inside. Loved the carpet!

Some weird scientific thingie. The floating doohikies looked like giant hemoglobin.

The Flame in all his alien glory.

Couldn't remember ever taking a pic of these plants when I was here before, so here you go. :P

I liked the overall feel of the set up here. They really came up with some truly interesting flooring.

Some NPCs looking way too serious.

Floating cantina.

Some more cool carpteting.

This central hub on the cantina floor just looked dangerous. Lightning bolts shooting all over the place. lol

Imperial advertising. I guess you can't get away from car sales no matter what side you're on. Hee!

Now for Minecraft

View while I was road building.

My wooden bridge across a lake. You can see one of the safe houses in the background. (I build those so peeps can have someplace safe to stop at when it's night time. Not safe out there at night! Eek!

Creeper bidding his time while I am snug inside the safe house.

With the new Misa texture pack the village golems look way cool!

Some nasty spiders waiting to assault me as I try to get somewhere safe in time.

Finally got the moon shot over the kid's castle. heh heh.

One of the skelly models for the texture pack. I really like the skeletal Robin Hood one. Hee! Oh and you can see my gravel road.

Sun rising from the top of the safe house. You can see the wooden bridge going off into the distance. 

Kids came up with their version of Japanese Torii gates for their place.

Daughter did creation mode and built herself a Stargate. Got the effect inside from water. Nice!

Yes, torches are a must have to live in Minecraft.

Hubby's cathedral. He's slowly replacing the stone with brick. The floor is made of obsidian which is super cool in this texture pack.

Waiting for daylight to go out and do more roads. Wheee!

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.
