Posted by Lindon Weztser

Hey everyone!

First and foremost!! Thank you for waiting so patiently for the release of 21! However, I'm still away on a break but slowly starting to get back into writing... which means I will not be on a regular update schedule yet. Ch.21 is now availble to read, and it is a long chapter!
Hope you all enoy it, and thank you so much for the support! I always enjoy hearing from you!

July 8, 2018: Message from our favorite Cajun
Posted by AC

I received this message from Beaudreaux and I thought it best to pass it on before you read the new chapter of Dear Diary:


Yes, Dear Diary has been updated. This is a humdinger of a chapter though, so be forewarned. There are lines of dialogue from all of the wildest, craziest characters in my division. I'm not sure if our esteemed Clan Archivist (aka my editor) will recover. He seemed to indicate in the negative when he sent the chapter back to me for posting, so in case I need a new editor the position now requires a prescription for valium. If I don't need a new editor, he may need donations to help pay for his valium. Anyway, you have been warned. Read at your own risk.

End Quote

All I'll say is that any donations to help TSL recover will be sent his way!

Enjoy the new chapter!


July 5, 2018: One door closes ....
Posted by AC

Hey all!

Just a small update; besides the events announcement below, there are a couple of other things happening today!

First is that the Fort Family Community ( ) is officially live.

Also, Timmy's Treehouse has been overhauled, ( ), check it out!

As those who have been following our two forums know, there have been some major issues due to not being able to update the software. To resolve this, we decided to take the main forum and make it the central hub of all of the Fort Family Sites that are able to be linked into it. As such, all posting announcements and news posts from the sites that are able, as well as posts of news made there directly, are available in one central location. Thanks to Akeentia for the awesome job!

On the Treehouse side, the software was in really bad shape. What we finally decided to do is dedicate the Treehouse to the most unique feature of the Fort Family - interacting with the characters of stories. Any author who wishes to participate can register themselves and whatever characters they want, and it is an open forum for authors, readers, and characters to interact with each other. We have fun doing it, and it sometimes gives us ideas!

Happy 4th!
