July 14, 2019: Lincoln 26
Posted by Lindon Weztser
Just and update here, so Chapter 26 will be posted this Tuesday or Wednesday. I just finished the chapter and it needs to go to editing still, but it shouldn't take too long. Also for anyone interested, I've had a mailing list for readers to receive updates on chapter posting. If you are interested in being added to it, just send me a email at email@example.com with the subject line as mailing list!
Looking forward to releasing the chapter and getting everyone's feedback!
July 4, 2019: Let the fireworks commence!
Posted by AC
For those of you in the US, I hope that you have a happy and safe Independance Day. (For those of you in the UK, we understand if you tip back a few pints to celebrate getting rid of us pesky Colonials!)
I just completed a move into a new house -- much more room and less issues with noisy neighbors, so once I figure out where the heck i put everything I can possibly get in some quality time to finish the partial chapters I have done .... you'll have to wait to see which story wins the lottery though!
As a special holiday present, Bill W has given us another chapter of Castaway Hotel: Next Generation book 3 ... I'll admit it, I had to read the chapter first before I could take the time to announce it. If you have not read the Castaway Hotel saga, you really need to -- Bill W has done an awesome job of following the Curry family through muliple generations with new twists at every turn!
I'll see y'all soon -- I've got an appointment with a few bottles of lager!

May 28, 2019: 12th Annual - Random Cake Holiday!!!
Posted by JeffsFort
There are some traditions that were started as a laugh that we refuse to let die. This is one started by our favorite role model and yes, The Fort Family celebrates it to this day...

*Random Cake Holiday* Emailed By Comicality!
That's right! I said 'Random Cake Holiday'! Hehehe! Don't ask any questions, don't worry about the rhyme or reason WHY you should do it...just DO IT! We had a conversation in the chat tonight, and this lack of cake is just unforgivable. So today, I want each and every single person reading this, to go out somewhere and find yourself a piece of cake to eat! I don't care HOW you get it, or WHAT kind of cake it is! But there are just way too many people who have gone TOO long without having a piece of cake!
You can laugh all you want! Feel silly doing it! I don't care! Whatever! Just go out, find some cake, and enjoy it for the simple fact that you CAN! And I'm not talking about some moldy old store bought sliver of cake that you can buy for a quarter at the counter of your local gas station! I mean actual *CAKE*! Go to a bakery, go to a neighbor's house, hit up the old lady that does volunteer work at the resource center in your area, bake your own and give half of it away to someone else who doesn't have cake, play your Cake cd on your car radio..whatever...but don't you DARE let the sun set without getting a taste of that sweet sweet cake goodness! C'mon...don't you want some CAKE??? I do!
The only time we get to have cake is at weddings, birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, and bachelor parties. And that's just wrong! So if you needed a reason to eat cake, then here it is. It's cake day. GO! Get some! Enjoy it! Do it for the simple fact that you have absolutely NO reason to do it other than I told you so! Hehehe! Savor it!
That's right....I'm going to get mine as soon as I get up tomorrow! Believe me! Mmmm cake...
Spread the word!

May 27, 2019: From us to all of you...
Posted by AC
Today, the US is observing Memorial Day. While this is not observed world-wide, I ask all of you to take the time today to thank the people that you know who have served in your nation's military services. Without them, the stories that you read here would not be possible, as the soldiers and sailors of the world sacrifice their time, and sometimes their lives, to give you the rights and freedoms that you enjoy every day.
To all of my brothers and sisters of the world who are now serving, have served, or have given their lives in service to their country, I salute you.
US Navy - 1985-1987
