On The Way: Based on true events

by Michael McKenzie

They have their own basic training. They have their own weapons systems. They have their own history. They have their own boots.

When something absolutely has to be destroyed, they’re the ones called. They have control of the most advanced and destructive land vehicle on the planet.

They can do more damage on the battlefield in two minutes than any other group can do in two days.
They are the king of battle. They are the United States Armor.

All James McRae wanted to do was to serve his country and prove himself in combat. In 2003, he got his chance as he deploys for Operation Iraqi Freedom. His brilliant mind has made him an exceptional gunner on the M1A2 Abrams main battle tank. His platoon, the War Pigs, join an infantry unit and are tasked to establish peace in a remote part of Iraq.

With no support. Surrounded by enemies. With all their training. Nothing could have prepared them for the first war of the 21st Century.

The Genius

by Theodore Dreiser

The “Genius” concerns Eugene Witla, a talented painter of strong sexual desires who grapples with his commitment to his art and the force of his erotic needs. Young Eugene escapes the confines of the small town in Illinois where he has been raised to make his way in Chicago. There he studies painting and enjoys the excitement of the city. Eugene becomes engaged to a young woman named Angela, and the couple move to New York City, where he makes a name for himself in the art world, but finds his marriage with the increasingly conventional Angela painfully limiting. Eugene finds it difficult to remain faithful as life based on monogamy seems beyond him.

Valley of the Lesser Evil (A Hawke & Carmody Western Novel Book 1)

by Carl Dane

At the end of a deadly trail lurks an unspeakable secret.
Bareknuckle fighter, gunman, and itinerant marshal Josiah Hawke is up against a stacked deck: He’s been called in to investigate the murder of an old friend and lawman in a town that’s suddenly and inexplicably been overrun by thugs and goons. As he gets closer to the truth, the outlaw gang draws on seemingly unlimited resources to up the ante, and Hawke faces a series of increasingly determined and deadly adversaries who want him dead.
But Hawke, a former college professor who became addicted to the rush of combat a decade earlier during the Civil War, brings a very special set of skills to the table – trickery, deception, and battlefield smarts he acquired in a secret unit conducting raids and sabotage behind enemy lines. And he teams up with a formidable Tennessee mountain man named Tom Carmody, a giant woodsman who can read tracks like anyone else reads a newspaper.
Together, this Old West odd couple battles hired shootists, a gang of hired gunmen, and raiding Comanche war parties – and in their spare time occupies themselves by creatively getting on each other’s nerves.
At the end lies the shocking solution to the mystery and a final confrontation with one of the West’s deadliest hired guns – along with the realization that behind the puzzle lurks an unspeakable secret that has been hushed in the shadows of the Valley of the Lesser Evil.
