Jennifer Lacewing is a lonely teenager whose father is too important to be around. Surviving in Helix, one of the last bastions to the small human existence on a decaying Earth, she longs to be a peaceful farmer. But things never go as planned. When Jennifer and Collins, her best friend, are forced to join the Wanderers, a small group that can mysteriously survive outside the safety of Helix’s fences, she is devastated.

And something else is amiss. Was it a coincidence that she became a Wanderer at the same time her father has been falsely accused of murder?” In a rush against time, Jennifer must complete her Wanderer training and clear her father’s name…or lose him forever.9781943050833-ebook Curse 290pg Rework.jpgAvailable on Amazon.com

All to do with Beth

Beth came from a your typical overworked household.  She was the youngest of two. Her mom was a office manager at a accounting firm. Never really home and when she was never off work.  Dad was no different he was a clinical laboratory scientist. The company he worked for kepted downsizing the staff to make their quarterly earnings reports look better.  You know what every company has been doing. Jobs are hard to find and even harder to keep. Unless you toe that company line. Her dad worked worse hours than her Mom. There was no aunts or uncles in this state and both grandparents had long since passed away.  Will did his best to take care of her. (more…)

Day  179

Mom was the first one up today and she knew right away something was wrong.  I was making breakfast when she sat down to ask if I was okay.  There was no point in hiding it, so I told her about my dream last night.  She told me that things will be okay and that it was just a dream.  It was hard to hold back my emotions.  At some point during our talk I started to cry and she gave me a huge hug.  The kind that only a Mom can give.  After our talk and breakfast was made Mom went to wake everyone up.  I did not want to face Lily, but knew I had to. (more…)

I had my three of my main characters drawn by the talented. Let me know what you think.

Day 178

We are starting to run into things that were not accounted for with all these people.  Interesting things like not enough light bulbs, electrical wire, and other day to day items.  Even with the new septic system you need a way to clean it efficiently and maintain it. People also forget that light bulbs also don’t grow on trees.  Even LED lights have to be replaced every once in a while. The point of prepping is to think about the short term and long term. The compound has enough supplies to last for a while, but with all these new people we will are running out of things quicker than expected. Thinking about all that I can see why Colonel Rives can up with his plan of attack.  (more…)

Day 171

It has been a month since the military joined us. Colonel Rives has proven to be a natural leader.  The military did not end up taking over the camp, but worked with the structure that are already in place. In the last 30 days we have come together as a small society. There have been a few problems and only one intense standoffs. Two people that came here from the military camp decided not to live in this world anymore and ended it. Injured a few people on the way out to. They  looked like the type of person that had everything handed to them in life. Shame what happened, but why would you want to hurt other people in that type of circumstance? (more…)

The Reader of Acheron

By Walter Rhein

Review By Jacob Pelley

BOOK BLURB

Book One of the Slaves of Erafor series: Reading is forbidden, and the penalty for non-compliance is a life of slavery enabled by the forcible administration of a mind rotting drug. Yet, there are those possessed of the will to seek illumination. Kikkan, a former slave on the run, and Quillion, a mercenary and self-taught scholar. Together they seek out a small band of rebels living in hiding who offer the promise of a better world. Their leader is a mysterious figure known only as The Reader of Acheron (more…)

Day 141

The military made it to the compound today.  Most saw it as a welcome sight.  People cheered as the convoy rolled into town.  Three Humvees, two jeeps and a lot of normal cars drove right to Fremont’s home then circle and stopped.  That is when the last remaining  helicopters landed on the crude helipad we had made a few days before. Since the world has gone quiet it was no surprise that they were close.  We were officially occupied. (more…)

Day 138

Still on  Brooke duty for the next few days. Thankfully I am prepared for babysitting activities.  In the beast a while ago I found something I have been saving just for this. There was whole pouch full of Data packs of kids shows for my slate. Also Beth took pity on me gave  me a 64 count box of crayons and a coloring book. Now before you think Brooke duty is great and I just get to sit around all day it is not. Babysitting also comes with a list of chores.  Laundry for one and there is a lot it. Dad and Mom’s laundry is the worst out of everyone’s.  It is like they roll around in dirt all day.Lily and Courtney get all sorts of mad if you don’t wash their clothes just right. Plus according to Mom there is a right way to fold a towel. Then there is dishes, preparing dinner, sweeping, mopping, dusting, and battery maintenance. Dinner is not as fun as it once was. Everyone gave up half of their food storage to go into the community pool. For  all the new people here. Even the easy days are full of busy work. Chores may not seem that hard, but add a 4 year old into the mix and it gets interesting. Like after you mop the floor and Brooke helps you. By tipping the water bucket over into the living room. Don’t get my started on potty training either. It is like she knows I just finished her laundry, so she goes out of her way to make more. It is no wonder Mom quit her job after taking care of kids it is  hard work. (more…)

Day 137 For the most part of my life I have been a homebody. I have only been to a city with more than 5,000 people living in it a number of  times. It was always the same city to. A odd city with a even odder name Canson. Most of the people that go to Canson are migratory. The City of Canson only claim to fame is its  airport. It is where people like Fremont with a lot of money like to park their private jet fleet. Fremont is not the only rich person to live in these parts and when you get to that level of wealth people fly to you for meetings not the other way around. I asked Fremont about it once and he told me that when you are rich people never leave you alone. You can’t walk down the street, go to the store or even a have a nice family outing without getting harassed. That is a little bit why he moved out here. Then some of his other billionaire buddy followed him. Canson also had the necessity framework to support these rich peoples net works. Like schools, hospitals, police stations, 5 star restaurants with super high speed internet. Mind blowing how just a few people need so much support to run their day to day. (more…)
