November 19, 2021: Chasing Christmas - Live Reading
Posted by D. K. Daniels

D.K. Daniels here: I'm not usually vocal on the news bulletin. However, I have something neat to share. I'm trying out something new, and since the 12th of December makes Chasing Christmas 3-years-old too, I'm thinking of doing an exclusive reading of the story live. Twenty-two chapters, Twenty-two days, each segregated into an hour a day. Starting around the start of Decemeber. You can grab yourself a copy of the book, and we can read the novel together simultaneously, ask questions, and whatnot. If this is something you'd like to participate in with me, let me know below by voting on it. I think it is cool, something different to look forward to on the run-up to Christmas :) So, vote on it below. The link goes to survey monkey, just so I can guage the demand.

November 13, 2021: Life Renewed Update!
Posted by AC

Despite working 12 hour days AND having to move unexpectedly to a new house, I have managed to get another chapter together! With this chapter, the Michaels family saga gets to within 24 hours of the party at the end of Memories Part 3.

STL and Memories fans will see some familiar faces this round, and we all get to watch as the group that was thrown together start to learn how to be family.

No kiddie pools were harmed in the making of this chapter .. promise!




September 1, 2021: Donations Needed
Posted by The Story Lover

Due to the ongoing Pandemic, a lot of us have gone through financial difficulties. The Fort Family of Sites has been affected by those financial difficulties as well. In fact, for the last eighteen months, we have been running in the red. Due to quite a few of our sites coming up for renewal over the next couple of months, we will go far enough in the red that it will be untenable.

So, please donate to support our Author Hosting and keep all of our sites online. All donations large or small will be greatly appreciated. Anything you can give to support The Fort Family of Sites will go a long way to keep the sites online and Ad-Free.

Thank you for your generosity.

TSL for the Fort Family of Sites.

August 23, 2021: Honeymoon alert!
Posted by AC

The next chapter of "Mikyvis Chronacles: Honeymoon is now LIVE!

In Chapter two, we continue to follow DJ and Tanner as they start their journey in Cory and Sean's footsteps -- and as expected, they're doing it in style!

Hang on, this ride has some serious twists!


August 22, 2021: CSU Status Update
Posted by AC

I thought that you would all like to know what we're working on in the background! After discussion, myself and TheEggman have finally been able to determine a path to move the CSU stories of D&B forward. After Dave passed away, "B" turned everything over to us; the problem was that none of us felt confident at the time that we could do their storylines justice.

I'll give more details when available, but for now we have decided as a first step to include the core "Jigsaw" characters in some future installments of "Honeymoon" to prepare for the continuation of their storylines. For the first time in years, "CSPRD", "Memories", "Jigsaw", "Be Careful...", and "CSV-DSM" are running very close together. With the work we are planning in "Honeymoon", we should be able to have all of the above stories in line to run concurrently when we start the next books of Memories and CSPRD, and we are looking at ways to move forward with the "Jigsaw" and "Be Careful..." storylines without disrespecting the legacy of D&B.

Stay tuned, there's more coming as fast as we can get it done!


July 10, 2021: To go along with the update....
Posted by AC

To go along with the previously mentioned update announcing the "Honeymoon" addition to the "Memories" and "CSPRD" timeline, I just went through and cleaned up an issue that has made even us author ask "Where is ... at?"

The story collection "Mikyvis Chronicles" has had the word "The" removed from the front of its name, as has the first section, "Musical Interlude". This should make things easier from a reader and author standpoint to find things. I also added some quicklinks in the story lists for TheEggman and myself to help your access to the stories.
