Good morning/afternoon/evening! Welcome back!

Close up of my Jedi (couldn't remember if I'd shared it before) Tarrah

And finally a close up of my Imperial Spy Larana. I find them both terribly beautiful, each in their own way. No?

On Balmorra with the Jedi.

Super cool moving 3D hologram of a weapons driod. If you click for the bigger version you can see labels that pop up around it describing systems and whatnot. So cool!

Some super deep elevator shafts at the Droid Factory.

The huge assembly line was way cool.

And what is a giant factory without giant energy couplings!

We were down here twice, second time we found this! Bwahahahaha! (Dang it! I misplaced the coordinates! To get to it though, you have to go to the floor with the assembly line. This one is at the super deep elevator shaft. Behind one of the conveyor belts, there's a recess. You blink, you'll miss it, hubby did. Hee! Had to call him back over.)

Floating dead guy. Heh heh. And he kept swinging his light stick like he was practicing baseball. 

A closeup of the datacron.

Now onto Tatooine with the spy.

Jawas doing what Jawas do best.

Starting Imperial town with their trusty Imperial robot guards keeping the streets safe from Republic interlopers. :P

Took my close up pic from this one. Totally a coincidence the sidekick ended up the same race. lol. I got more bling.

Mos Ila Cantina.

Love the look of the gate area.

Interesting hallway of the medcenter

Love those houses.

Back on Balmorra we logged in to a surprise.

That's a player dancing up there. No idea how he got there. But he was having a good time. lol.

Surprise datacron! In Bugtown there's a locked chest on the middle of a split bridge. Found the key with the Junk Dealer vendor across the lake by the shuttle. Cost 5,000 credits but I decided to risk it and we were so glad I did. Since we were grouped, it allowed him to get it as well. Awesome!

Loved that Balmorra sky!

Hard to reach vantage point, but what a view!

Jealously guarded power coupling?

Dude was not doing very well holding in his lunch. Bleah!

Impressive bot, no?

Tatooine again! I was busy. lol.

Destroyed land cargo ship, still fresh.

Some nice Sand People art!

Now to Minecraft.

The guys have been busy! I finally got back to road building.

There's a Skelleton riding a spider in here. The graphics got weird and riding was done in more than one way. o.O

The kids have changed the wall around the village. I think this looks way cool!

A friend of their has figured out how to make the blocks for a huge circle and it making a round high rise. Looking pretty cool! Haven't checked out the obelisk nearby yet. Once I get a road over there though...

Wow, I didn't take pics of my place. AGAIN! Argh! lol. Finally got all the stone replaced with the mossy stone brick. Looks so good!

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.
