There were a couple of places where the directions weren’t just exact but nothing that kept it from turning out great. Here’s a photo of it under construction and one as a finished project. Just over $300 in materials, not bad at all and plenty of room to expand, add a deck, store toys underneath or put in a sandbox, etc. Plus its portable if you want it to be and can be moved if you think the grass needs a rest in a certain area. It is not in the pictures but we did put poles in the ground and secured the fort to them, the wind gets pretty ridiculous sometimes. Later we are thinking about attaching it to a tree with environmentally friendly bolts so that when the kids a re a little older they can go up in to a tree house from the fort. Lots of possibilities.

Tawrett Fames is determined to find Durakuss. He believes that the curse from Sabimn had transported his bodyguard to another realm known as Kralust. But there are risks. The Admiral Council already suspects that he and his crew are lying about their adventure on Sabimn so they must keep quiet about their discoveries. That isn’t easy, with a few missing comrades and questions lingering.

Tawrett is impeded by an Abuth warship and the murders of some crewmen. They are surrounded by enemies and terrors that they cannot fully perceive.

With a new bodyguard trailing him and some old acquaintances, Tawrett travels to Kralust without orders. But Kralust is filled with terrors and nightmares exiled from the TMB corporations many years before, the aftermath of horrors abandoned by terrible minds.

But there is an unexpected twist to his secret mission; he will discover the truth about his wife’s death and the false accusations against his friend, Ragilla. But those truths will shaken him to the core and force him on a path that he has feared walking.

playhouse

Build a 8×8 playhouse with an optional porch area and flower boxes.  The deck is 6” off the ground and the roof is roughly 10 feet tall.  This is a guidebook to construct this fort with diagrams and instructions.

Cost:  The price for the materials to build this project would be dependent upon what material that you purchase.  Some lumber is more expensive than others.  However, the original structure was created with standard pine so the general cost would be around $600, which would include hardware.

Time:  I am not going to waste your time to estimate how long it will take you to assemble this fort.  Every person has a different speed and it depends on your tools and expertise, obviously.  As well as how much free time that is available to you.
Theoretically, it could be completed in one day.  Also theoretically, it could take you a week.  If you hire some of the contractors that I’ve heard complained about, it could take them a whole year.

Lonely House: haunted mystery, romance

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Jennifer Alexander was searching for a new life.  She packed her possessions and set out to find a job in a new city.  During a heavy thunderstorm, she is detoured from the highway and led towards an abandoned house on top of a plateau.

This house is not ordinary, packed with antique furniture from decades ago.  The technology is antiquated.  The house appears to be abandoned but there is evidence that someone had once lived there recently.

The thunderstorm drives many people to seek the comfort of the house, a family of three, a manager, a female couple, an old man and a couch potato.  The heavy rains strand them there, some of their cars falling off the cliff in mudslides.  The house is like a time capsule of 70s and 80s furniture and items, except there does not appear to be any outlets or phone jacks.

On the first night, strange sounds scare the new residents, odd and spooky noises.  The following morning, they discover someone missing.  After searching the house, they are clueless as to how and why the person disappeared.  People are frightened that something haunts the house and seeks out to harm them.

Thomas Dreckerd is the only person that does not believe in ghosts; he is determined to learn the answers to the disappearances and the source of the noises.  Jennifer grooms an attraction to Thomas and follows him on his exploration of the house’s many mysteries.

As people continue to disappear, the mystery intensifies.  The other residents begin to blame Jennifer.  The others turn against her after several days of pummeling thunderstorms continue.

Jennifer and the others realize that they are not the only ones in the house.  There are secrets.  But something else lingers.  Will they be able to stop what is happening?  Or will they each be doomed to fate?

This story is set in the Blue Star Series universe but it hangs independent from the epic story.  This story relates to a specific marker mentioned in Restoration of Atlantis.  It is a haunted mystery and romance with science fiction elements.

Help Wanted

Welcome to the Wild West on Mars…

Gatling Gun Charley is a poor cowboy recently robbed by his latest employer.  If that wasn’t bad enough, he is chased through the canyons of Mars by an angry farmer after he accidentally walked over his crops while fighting through a resolith dust storm.

An independent cowboy down on his luck, Charley is pursued by a poor Spurn girl, Clarissa, wanting to be trained so she can exact vengeance against those who killed her family.  Even in desperate need of cash, he refuses to help, afraid to be associated with the poorer race, once enslaved a few years back and then emancipated.

But his escape from Chantyville is not easy.  A mangy dog won’t stop pestering him.  A domesticated lion stalks him.  A beautiful horse is attracted to him.  These creatures can‘t reduce his mounting losses.

He runs from town and tries to find his way to Aurium City while needing funds and distancing himself from his enemies.  But instead, a voodoo witch doctor, half human and half Spurn spells him.  Fighting away his destiny, he is forced onto a mountain near Clarissa.

Charley relents to help Clarissa but only to train her to use firearms.  He doesn’t want to have anything to do with her enemies, the Rotger Brothers.  Begrudgingly, he teaches her to shoot a seven shot revolver on Blackhead Mountain.  But there is something else bothering him, a lingering feeling…

But his path leads him in circles until he is faced with an inevitable choice.

This book is intended for adults only: it contains violence, language, and adult situations.

Dragon Perched on the White House

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

 

The animals of myth and extinction have returned to Earth.  The prophecies are coming to pass, from Revelations, to Nostradamus and Hopi.

The Earth is at war.  World War III has erupted.  Famine and disease is spreading.  The governments are strained.  Militaries are short on manpower.  Resources are dwindling.

But there is hope…

Colonel Poul Flagstaad and the Phoenix have returned to Earth.  The governments debrief them and separate the team.  As each one returns to their nations, they are immediately sent on other missions.  Immediately, they are conflicted, each one struggling with the need to follow duty or to make choices contrary to their orders that will save lives for the better.

The innocent, the poor and the displaced are stranded.  Some seek protection at the spiritual monuments of the world.  Beneath each monument are portals that can take them to the safety of Fifth World.  But there is only one group that can successfully open the portals.

Across the Atlantic, Vice Admiral Gunner leads a ragtag fleet led by Coast Guard and supplemented with military and civilian contractors.  Fighting through procedural problems and helicopter accidents, he must guide the Urda’s mothball fleet into the Mediterranean Sea.  Along the way, he saves many stranded civilians, collecting them under his protection.
He struggles to find a way to save the civilians while completing his mission.

Poul and his son Knud learn there are secret societies pushing them to secure portals that could reach Fifth World.  These societies are controlling the war for their own means.  The governments want the portals to manipulate the human race into one New World Order.
Poul needs to make a choice to follow his orders or defy them.  He witnesses the suffering of the people and wonders about the morality of denying them a new life in an untouched world, or subject Fifth World to be scavenged for its resources for the benefit of the governments and corporations.

Will the human race survive the Apocalypse?  Will the Phoenix rise from the ashes to enact good for the meek of the world, or will they follow orders and subject the people to their doom?

This book contains violence, adult situations and adult language.

sabtop

TMB Inc. is a corporate power that protects the human race from Abuths and other dangers in the galaxy.  With adults incapacitated by a disease, the company uses teenagers and even younger to serve as soldiers to fight for them.

After the loss of his son and then his wife, Tawrett finds himself returning to the planet where he declared his nuptials.  He has been given an important mission to retrieve an object that could steer the war in favor of the human race.  But after a battle with Abuths and unforeseen events, their starship is whisked across space and crashes on Sabimn.

The human population of Sabimn are terrorized by a race called Coerallins.  The Coerallins use organic technology for weapons and machinery, as well as to enslave the humans.  Their leaders attempt to coax Tawrett and his soldiers to help defeat their foe by destroying the Eye Ruby.  Tawrett is reluctant, not willing to get involved with their dispute.  But the mysteries of Sabimn keep growing as he discovers the secret to his brother’s death and much more.

Not sure if his colleagues survived and his ability to complete the mission, Tawrett must make a decision to help the human race or discard their hopes.  Surrounded by friends and enemies, he is unsure who to trust, and Sabimn’s magical properties force the past memories to surface and haunt him.

Will he return to their old ways, or continue acting on the company’s desires.
