Let's see what weird stuff I took virtual pics of this week.

On the Republic side we have Quesh:

Imperial outpost.


Super big robot. We were not expecting him!


I swear safety is not a concern in the Galaxy. All these open conduits. hee!


Quesh has such a unique look. Beautiful in it's putrid/poisonous state


Giant drill. Hubby felt it was important I take a pic of it. Like I need encouragement! Heh


Look at those mined cliffs!


Bad things have happened here.


Another drill, but a better view of the blade at work.


Such funky plants here.



Rather imposing, no?


Remnants of a better time. Once I noticed one, I saw them everywhere. Sad really. 




Factory complex.


Loved the Trandoshan and his outfit. (Trevor, just for you!)


Look at that sky! It's almost on fire.


Beasties of Quesh


Cool texture for this elevator shaft.


Giant, nasty bomb. 



Now to Imperial Tatooine:



Krayt Dragon skull and bones.





Nothing compared to its ancestors.


Giant swamp rats. Ugh


Found this lady giving private dance lessons to a gentleman in a corner.



Bad attitude for sure.


First time I've seen a ship with personal markings. Liked it!


Mandalorean in full armor.


New hat piece for my companion. Ugliest thing EVER!


He smashes with his fists. But not anymore.


A typical scene of the Empire keeping peace in the universe.


Never noticed this cool statue before. Also note the trees we've imported as Tatooine doesn't have these. Makes it 10 degrees cooler just seeing them there. :P


I believe this is either for an ATM machine or gambling kiosks. Found them once I went farther into the station. These were by the main entrance.


Has a feel of Japan's Sons of the Sun to it, doesn't it? 



Imperial Fleet


The Light Side vendor area is almost like a temple. Hmm.



The Dark Side area even more so! lol



More space mission shots. Can't get rid of the UI, fight, and take pics at the same time though. lol.






This place makes you wish for Dramamine super fast. :P




No Minecraft this week, sorry! 

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.
