THE FORGE

Remember we're all here to help us make progress on our dreams.
Sometimes to do that we need to bang and hack at our talent until we get it right.
A LOT of times we need others to help.
So in the spirit of HELPING, both give and receive criticism in order for all of us to get better!

Not at all related to the last story I posted here. The setting is technically fantasy, but the fictional kingdoms all have historical inspirations which I hope are self-evident to readers. In a sense you can consider it a retelling of the old…Continue

I just wanted to take the time to join this pretty cool Group. I met the founder of this group who is also (the creator of Dark Universe) on the recent community Radio Talk Show Call we had today and I really liked his life perspectives. I wanted to just post this character I Created, Own and have test marketed in a few areas in southern Calif, as a way to get some insight from those in this group. I'll post some story content soon as well. I look forward to your feed back 

Thanks

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
