April 19, 2019: Fantasy Faire Chapter 9
Posted by Boudreaux

Yes, another chapter is now available for your perusal.   It's finally time for sweet Frodo to get a new wardrobe.  Nothing could happen while going shopping for a few pairs of jeans, right?  Ahh who am I kidding?  This is one of my stories.  ANYTHING could happen while shopping.  Hope you enjoy this one.  Oh fair warning.... I have added yet another language that is not exactly English, but I'm hoping most people won't have any trouble with this one.  Let me know if you do.

April 8, 2019: My new story is now live On Jeff's Fort and The Story Lover
Posted by Jules Porter

Well I've taken the plunge and posted the first chapter of "Mending Wounded Hearts" I wasn't expecting the kind of feed back I received for  my last story. And frankly I thought that it would be my only story.  So thanks to Guys like Jeff, TSL and an author called Juju I took another shot.

Please let me know if you like it or don't like it.  I look forward to hearing from readers and authors alike. 

April 2, 2019: Spring Short Story Event ~ A Story Mashup:
Posted by The Story Lover

Posted by Fred DeElve

What is it? Well, you take two different stories by two different authors (The Fine Print - They can be the same author if you want.), put them together and run with it. As always, you must have permission from the authors involved to use their story and characters. For Example - Sentenced to Haven, Dragons Across Space, The Operant Unconscious Memories, Another Priorities, or you can create your own title. However, you do need to give attribution to the authors whose stories you are combining. Have fun go wild and crazy. Did I say have fun yet? Yeah, do that!

I will post stories Monday, May 27, 2019, on Memorial Day.

  1. All entries should be in by Friday, May 24, 2019, at 9:00 PM PDT (give or take a day or three.)
  2. Entries should be between 500 to 15,000 words give or take.
  3. Send all submissions to Spring Short Story Event.

Happy Writing,

March 31, 2019: Fort Family Announcement
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Family!

As one of our favorite holidays is right on top of us, I'm afraid our plans for it have been unavoidably put off. We got an announcement from our hosting service that there will be some much-needed maintenance being performed on the machines that we rely on for hosting. Which means we can expect intermittent outages throughout the day. Now at first, we thought "Hmmm... Maybe THIS was intended as an April Fool's joke..." before we considered how serious our hosting service takes their job. So, even though all year long we have been planning something a bit out there to make up for missing past April Fool's opportunities, we regretfully need to let it go this year. For those of us who think THIS is an April Fool's joke, we have trained you well but, this year that training will not serve you as well as it should. <giggle>

I also want to remind you all that tomorrow, our hosted author "Garrett D.M." ships out to boot camp with the United States Army. I hope you all were able to send him off with good wishes and I personally can't wait to hear some of the stories he comes home with. Those of you who would like to send him a quick message to wish him luck, you can reach him at his listed email: I'm sure he would appreciate knowing that we are all with him in spirit.

Til the next update,
- Jeff P. -
