The Christian and the Vampire: A Short Story

by Vikki Kestell

What happens one sultry summer night when a Christian and a vampire meet on a fire escape and agree to engage in a cordial conversation? A touch of hilarity, plus eye-poppingâ??and Undead heart-startingâ??revelation, as vampire myth and legend give way to greater Truth!

Think Anne Rice meets Frank Peretti!

“Oh, I’m just in the mood for some good conversation. Cordial conversation, I assure you.” The shadows twisted and I thought he turned toward me. “What do you say, Taz?”

“I can always agree to a cordial conversation.”

“Ah. Good.” I saw that flash of white again and the faint outline of a sharp jaw. His voice was young and cultured, and I guessed his age at about thirty, but . . . but his elegant manner belied that relatively youthful age. Something distinctly mature emanated from him, and I warned myself not to base my estimation of his age on his appearance.

“I watched you work down in the Glades tonight,” he murmured, “and I confess I am somewhat curious . . . about you. . . Taz.”

He paused before adding, casually, “Dear me. This rusty old fire escape doesn’t lend itself much to comfort or civility, does it? Might we be more at our ease inside?”

“You want me to invite a vampire into my home.” I waggled my eyebrows and just looked at him. Like, really?

He giggled low in his throat, tickled that I’d found him out so quickly. “But surely you’re not afraid?”

I shrugged. “Not afraid. Just not stupid.”

He spread his hands again, a self-deprecating gesture. “It was just a . . . cordial suggestion, Taz.”

“Well, could I offer you something to drink?” I smiled this time. “In the spirit of cordiality, of course.”

It was quite interesting how his eyes flared red. I hadn’t been 100 percent certain where they were until they did.

Annnnnd apparently I’d ticked him off.

The Mansions of Idumea (Forest at the Edge Book 3)

by Trish Mercer

Lieutenant Colonel Perrin Shin is not happy.
Not happy about the changes he’s seen in Edge since he arrived sixteen years ago. Not about his daughter and son turning into teenagers. And certainly not about the Guarders turning the village teens into thieves, or the world not noticing anything but the latest entertainment.
Which also means no one’s noticing the ever-tightening control of Chairman Mal and the Administrators.
While Perrin and Mahrree notice, as does their claimed brother Shem Zenos, there’s nothing that two soldiers and a school teacher can do about those who rule the world.
So when a disaster hits Edge and half of the world, then Perrin receives an urgent message demanding that he return immediately to Idumea–Well, he’s not sure what’s worse: the fact that he has to leave his village that desperately needs him in order to face the government he hates, or that his wife and children are going with him.

Part fantasy, part adventure, part humor, part romance, part mystery all equates to a wholly entertaining and unique family saga.
Forest at the Edge Series–you’ve never read anything like this before.

Shadow of the Storm

by Candle Sutton

Call me Stormy. For today, anyway. Because tomorrow I might be someone else.

I can’t tell you my real name, because I don’t know what it is. The truth of the matter is that I don’t know who I am.

You might be wondering how that can be. Join the club.

My memories begin with overhearing two men planning my murder. You heard me, my murder. I get away from them, but just barely. The only things in my possession are a duffel bag with obscene amounts of cash and a wallet with four driver’s licenses. All with my picture. Don’t ask me how or why I have them – or even if any of them are real – because I don’t know.

I don’t know much of anything.

All I know is those men want me dead. For reasons still unknown to me. So I’ll run. And I’ll keep running until I can piece my fractured mind back together.

But how do you go about remembering the things that most people already know?

His soh – he never even knew Maggie was pregnant when she left…..

Hannah Adams’ heart is broken. Her grief drives her to desperate actions that bring Cam into her life. Her attraction is immediate, but dark forces arise drawn to her for reasons unknown. Her very soul is in danger.

The Ship to Look for God: Book 1 of the Ship Trilogy

by D. Krauss

Otto Boteman suffers a massive heart attack and wakes up in a strange, jeweled city filled with beautiful people, a mesmerizing sky defying all physics, and what looks suspiciously like his first car. Seeking answers, Otto has a disturbing encounter with a murdered childhood friend and is assured by some kind of angel bureaucrat that this is Heaven, but God is not here so don’t bother looking. No God? Can’t be Heaven, then, despite the best danishes he’s ever eaten and residence in a pretty nice condo (replete with tailored suits and HBO). Maybe he’s not even dead, just comatose. But then he meets Claudia, a 5th Century beauty running an Irish pub, who tells him about a group of malcontents building a rocket ship in the far desert. Their mission? Find God.

So begins Otto’s journey across a fabulous world peopled with the likes of Doc Holliday, Prester John, and a Mongol horde led by an accountant from West Kankakee, Illinois. Drawing the wrath of a frenzied, suit-wearing army of angels (or demons, can’t tell), Otto discovers that launching the ship just might end the eternal struggle between good and evil.

Jesus Returns to Earth (After Judgement Book 3)

by Denise Jenkins

The end of days on this earth will come. Jesus will return! First for all believers who are His at the rapture. He will meet us in the air and take us to heaven. 1 Thessalonians chapter 4 verses -18. ” But I would not have you be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him. 15 For we say this unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord, Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and the trump of God: and the dead in Christ will rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Then He will come back at the end of 7 years. It will be 7 years of wrath that you do not want to be here for. There are so many things already foretold in the bible. God’s word also tells us that love will grow cold. Mathew 24 vs 10-12. ” And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many, 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” No one can imagine how it’s going to be. I like to think about the rapture and the return of Jesus to earth 7 years later. I like to imagine how this earth will be when Jesus comes back and makes it like the garden of Eden. Most people don’t realize that there will be a heaven on this earth, but there will be. The millennium will be mostly Jewish people at first, but some others will live through the tribulation. If these Gentiles are believers, then they will be here too. Having babies with no pain and families growing as fast as they can. No more hard times and no more sickness and pain. That is all history. Until the end of the 1000 years of course. Then Satan will have to be set free so that the people being born into this heaven on earth will have a chance to decide to believe and follow Jesus. It’s hard to believe that a lot of them will not. Even having no Satan to test them until then. Growing up in a world where all is good and wonderful. Revelation chapter 20 verse 7 ” And when the thousand years are expired, Satan will be loosed out of prison, 8 and shall go out and deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth” It will happen. Just like it says it will. So many prophecies have been fulfilled already. The Jews back in their land after it laying desolate for so long. All told about before it happened. This is the end of a three-part series just to give some food for thought. Again no one knows exactly how or when any of these events will take place, but God. We do know they will take place. Just like everything else in the bible that has already been fulfilled. Just do a search of fulfilled prophecy and see all the things that have already happened. Jesus own crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection were all predicted in the Bible. Isaiah 52 and 53. King Cyrus was named before he was even born. So many prophecies already fulfilled. There is no doubt what so ever that the rest of them will be too. Knowing that God is in control gives me peace beyond measure. I can’t go to hell because I know He died to pay my sin debt personally. I know He was buried and resurrected by God our Father. That is what it takes to be saved. Believe God and spend eternity in Glory. 1 Corinthians chapter 15 verses 1-4 says that so clearly. Many other places say the same thing. Read Romans through Philemon. That is written to us gentiles and everyone else after the cross. That is Paul writing to us in this age. The rest of the Bible is still very important, but it was written to the Jew in the time of the law. Romans 15 vs 8. Not to us.

Riding Out The Devil (The Jack Harper Trilogy Book 1)

by Hilary Walker

Jack is only interested in helping horses. Period. Human owners irritate him.

He’s working with an anxious gelding when a mystery woman calls his cell phone. As she does once each year, she makes the same short statement before hanging up.

Already rattled, that evening he receives bad news which sends him back to his native England for the first time in 17 years.

The evil secrets he’s had under tight control for nearly two decades quickly begin to unravel, and on returning to his Maryland farm he is forced to share an embarrassing truth with total strangers.

A wounded Jack opens his reluctant heart to a boy in dire need of what only the trainer can offer, and discovers a talent for healing more than horses.

Tribulation: After Judgement Book 2

by Denise Jenkins

Tribulation. This is a continuing novel of people left behind after the rapture. All believers will go with Jesus in the rapture when He comes. Might be in our lifetime and it might not be. It will happen. Only God in heaven knows when. When I say all believers, I mean everyone who has faith in Jesus suffering so horribly to pay our sin debt, when He had no sin at all in Him at all. Faith in His blood that He shed there for us as He died on that cross, and faith in His resurrection by God our Father. Every single believer. The ones left behind will be left to face the wrath of God. They will be unbelievers and be going their own way. They will be living for themselves and not allowing Jesus to lead them into a good and happy life. The people left behind in this series knew God’s word or at least some of it. But they were still trusting on themselves and not on Jesus finished work of the cross, plus nothing else to save them. Only Jesus, who paid the price for ALL of our sins can save us. And He has! So few people are willing to just believe it. Once the tribulation starts it will be so hard to live. There will be so many deaths and so much natural disaster and man-made disaster. So much evil! The characters in this series are believers but it took seeing the rapture and all believers gone to make them realize that they had not believed. What were they waiting for? All we have to do is trust and believe the maker of all this earth and everything and everyone in it. It took me until I was 49 years old to see it. All that matters is that you do see it while you are still here on this earth and still alive. Seek Him while He can still be found. The characters in the book will still be saved and be in heaven if they die here, but they will have so much hardship and evil to face. The Antichrist is in control of the earth once the tribulation begins. There will be a one world fake religion that everyone is forced to follow. They who follow him and take the mark of the beast will be on their way to hell. They will think he is God, but they don’t know God, and this person in control in the tribulation is not Him. If the believers that believed after the rapture happen to live until Jesus return, 7 years later, they will go into the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God that will be here on earth. They will go in their human bodies to an earth that Jesus will make like the Garden of Eden. The people who have died before Jesus return will be in their resurrected bodies. A body that can travel at the speed of light, and walk through walls and eat! It will be better then we could ever imagine! But they have to get through this 7 years or die trying to get through it. It will be worse then it had ever been on earth. This is all right here in your bible as it is in mine. You can find me on Facebook and question me if you like. I live in Benton City, WA. It’s all right here in our Bibles if we take the time to study it. Jesus was the word and the word became flesh. Jesus is His word. You can trust Him. Don’t let anything keep you from Him. Eternity is a very long time. It will be in heaven with Jesus who saved us and all other believer’s, or it will be in a dark and painful lonely hell. There are only two choices and we are making our choice right here on earth. If we realize it or not. This is the time to seek Him and Know Him. Know what He has done to save you and me and every other soul here on this earth. Every soul who ever was here. Don’t try to save yourself. Following laws and trying to do good will not save you. So many people think they can do it themselves. Only faith in the finished work of Jesus on that cross, His death, His blood, His burial and His resurrection will save you. 1 Corinthians chapter 15 verses 1-4 is the clearest place in the bible that explains salvation so simply. Yet it is all supernatural. Once you truly believe Him, He does all the rest. Just believe God and what His Son has done to get us to heaven with Him.

Virtually Eliminated (The Ethan Hamilton Cyberthrillers Book 1)

by Jeff Gerke

He had a theory that the “accidental” electrocutions killing people online weren’t accidents at allâ?¦

Excerpt from Virtually Eliminated

Once he decided to kill himself, the rest was easy.

He took a last look at the candle burning on the bedside table, then willed the interface open.

The world he saw through the goggles was dark, as it always was at the beginning. But with a nudge of thought, a portal of light opened and he flew through, leaving his body far behind.

Back there, his name was Louis Parks. Here, he was Sentinel.

In a few moments, he would be neither.

This local net no longer satisfied him. He knew every node, every subdirectoryâ??even every userâ??all too well.

He hurried to the GlobeNet interface. There was the usual long queue. Sentinel wrinkled his forehead, and a collection of small three-dimensional objects appeared in the “air” before him. A computer-generated hand reached out from his invisible body to grasp something out of his inventory. It looked like a bullhorn. He activated it.

Sheep, he thought, moving through the now-unpopulated net. He closed his bullhorn subroutine and sped invisibly through the interface.

He had existed as Sentinel for two years, now: watching, listening, piecing things together. The inescapable conclusion grieved him, turned to stone what was left of his heart. It became clear that the time for sentinelsâ??always so passive, quiet, and immobileâ??was past.

The turning point had been Senator Griffith’s rebuttal. The lesser officials to whom Sentinel had divulged his findings had turned him away, but that had neither surprised nor discouraged him. But if a full Senator would turn a blind eye to the indisputable facts, however, America was in worse trouble than Sentinel had first imagined.

That was when Sentinel had left the beaten path. If the United States government was not going to combat America’s invaders, then he was going to have to defend her himself.

Sentinel breathed more easily once inside GlobeNet proper. He lived for the freedoms offered here. Freedom of expression, of presence, of information. Freedom from all restraint too: physical, monetary, legal, racial.


Broken Vows: Obedience, Chastity, a runaway teen (Broken Vows Trilogy Book 1)

by Marty Langenberg

How can a priest be â??unchaste’? How can he love a married woman?
Imagine a priest who has his own interpretation of his Vow of Chastity, and holds to it, even after it forces his Bishop to relocate him to a new parish. Imagine further that this man unexpectedly meets an ex-parishioner, who tells him she is separated, but still married. Will he provide intimate comfort and support to her, just because she confesses that she plans to divorce her husband?
When ten-year-old Alan Whittenby commits suicide, his older brother Desmond is wracked by guilt. His parents’ unwillingness to accept the truth drives Desmond away. He disappears from his boarding school but, when his father calls in favours from friends in the media as well as the police, Desmond’s whereabouts remain a mystery. When he meets backpacker Pennie Irvine and they decide to team up, she reluctantly shares stories of her own difficult childhood and they grow close. An act of heroism leaves Pennie in a quandary and she decides she must go on alone.
And, when Fr. Jack McCaffrey’s pneumonia attracts help from an unlikely source, nothing will stop him from breaking his Vow of Obedience to his Bishop and his Church. Because nothing can stop Jack acting on the greatest commandment Jesus gave his followers: Love one another.

The Lucid Series: Android Uprising

by Den Warren

Awarded Badge for Redemptive Fiction by Reality Calling.
Suitable for Young Adult.

. . . In a dystopian cyberpunk 2215, the former US was fragmented into multiple small countries.
. . . People in the UN proxy state of Homeland are controlled by psychotropic drugs, corrupted education, propaganda and oppressive laws.
In this story . . .
. . . Computer hacking clones are trying to get rich no matter what they have to do.
. . . A garbage collector hates everything about his life and goes rogue.
. . . An entire strain of genetically-engineered children is to be culled because of an imperfection.
. . . A tyrannical government robot unit is led by a ruthless being hiding behind a synthetic presence.
. . . A clone couple is living off of the grid and expecting an illegal child.
. . . A series of androids vow to fight for the truth even to the point of war.
. . . And a boy asks, “Is God real?”
The Lucid series is a unique clean-language novel that has heavy hitting, brutally honest edgy Christian themes and some graphic action.

Cyberpunk is the science fiction world of androids, clones, cyborgs, synthetic presences, nanites, virtual reality simulations, or any other such high tech thing that affects Man’s reality.

I contend that cyberpunk is the perfect vehicle to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our world where the populace spends its time consuming the far-out products of pop culture.

1. Cyberpunk is the most relatable speculative fiction sub-genre. It is more relatable and realistic than space travel or any fantasy. Unlike Amish romances, It is something men may read.

2. It is easy to believe that a cyberpunk setting, in its high tech attempts to make a perfect world, will have severe problems resulting in dystopia. We know from our current situation (sexual identity, same-sex marriage, abortion, etc.) that Man typically messes things up.

I have spent a lifetime reading Christian Apologetics, and I believe that I have written a compelling case for the Gospel in my novel: The Lucid Series: Android Uprising. My goal is to win souls with it.
So I prayerfully request the help of Christians with:

1. Please pray for my work like you would any other missionary.

2. Please get my book and do a review on it. Reviews are what keeps the book in the front of the lists. My book is competing against many books in the “Christian Fiction” category that never even mention Jesus. My e-book is priced as low as is allowable on Kindle.

FEMA Camp Parent Trap

by Ilyan Lavanway

As a nation, we have ignored almost two centuries of prophetic warnings. The stage has already been set by those we have allowed to hold sway in our country. Do we recognize what’s coming? Will we merely react to the crisis after it happens, or will we act in time to change the course of our nation and prevent the crisis? Can we take a lesson from 1940s Austrian history and prevent a repeat? As though ripped from today’s headlines, Christian author Ilyan Kei Lavanway explores what might happen to American families if parents fail to recognize how government alphabet agencies might legally – yes legally, lawfully – use school children as bait during false flag exercises or feigned emergencies to lure parents into internment camps under the guise of public safety. Do you own a gun? Is it registered? Are you loyal to the United States Constitution? If you answered yes to all three of these questions, you are probably on somebody’s list of potential enemies of the state. FEMA Camp Parent Trap is a wake up call. For those who think it’s implausible, ask a 90-year-old Austrian. If you can find one.
