Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

On the Imperial Side....Nar Shaddaa

Ah the Imperials really do have such cool intimidating stations.

Safety always seems to be a problem. They always have all these open energy beams. People could get ideas, don't you know.

I don't remember if I'd run across this when I was here as a Jedi. But I loved how much this resembles the set ups in the red light districts in medieval Japan. Window shopping was quite the business.

Yes, more lovely carpeting!

A truly intimidating manufacturing area. Had been sealed for a 1,000 years but was going the whole time keeping anyone attempting to come in out. 

Yeah, some peeps didn't make it.




This machine supposedly does EVERYTHING! The secret hidden by a Sith

A yes, the corpses of men and machines who'd previously tried to gain egress. Look at those guns! 

Carpet!

Do love that neon! Hee!

Vast! Vast!

He looks mean, doesn't he?

CARPET!

Dead nasty.

My robotic disguise. This was fun. 


These lamps were just cool. 

NPCs busy at work. 

 An Ithorian! How rare!

Had to go back to Dromund Kaas to report. Must say I never did quite tell her Darkness that the man I brought back was dead.

I'm a little worried about this guy. Oozing darkness while meditating cannot be a good thing.

I NEVER get tired of looking at my Imp Spy ship! NEVER! Oooo! (Really need to remember to take pics during space combat. Argh!)


As I'd guessed, my spy has now been sent to Tatooine. I finally for my speeder! Woot! 

Now to the Republic side...still at Balmorra.

Nice droid weapon cannon. Back away slowly.

Republic scientist hard at work! 

Minecraft! And back to the original graphics as there was a major update and the texture pack peeps aren't caught up.

This is my place! I'd spotted the location I wanted not long after the new world had been created, but hadn't been able to find it again.

Naturally gutted (meaning it was created this way by the system) I've now totally encased it in glass for my own nefarious purposes. Like sleeping! Hah!

View down to the nice small lake beside the property from the highest point of my new home.

Creepers and spiders saying howdy.

From the inside. Found some bricks with moss that are PERFECT for this. Replaced the stone here with that and it looks marvelous! Of course I forgot to take a picture. Sigh. Can't wait to see the look of it once the texture pack is updated! Squee!

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.
