Baby Girl: an urban fiction novel

by Smokey Moment

Bang! Bang! Bang!
Shots rang out and echoed in the night. The assailant walked away and looked back once. She walked away cool and calm, vanishing into the night. She had stopped running. In her mind, he deserved it. All she could see, as she pulled the trigger, was the look on his face when he was assaulting her over and over. All she could think of in that moment, was the fact that he would never get the chance to kill another woman’s spirit. Killing her spirit was the same as her dying.
Ursula felt dead. She had nothing to live for, except for the other young women who were being victimized daily by June and his crew. But June and the five men who attacked her unknowingly picked the wrong victim that day just a few years prior. The trauma and injury inflicted upon her by the men proved too much, and her resilient and tough exterior crumbled under the strain. Things went from bad to worse when June and his crew take the life of someone near and dear to her. She emerges from her depression as all bets are off and she hastily returns to where it all began. Ursula hits the streets, determined to seek revenge on those responsible and to take back a neighborhood gripped in fear.

Will Ursula be victorious in her war against six evil and diabolical men? Will she survive the war she wages or will she fall victim to its mean streets? Will a detective who has a lot to lose, risk it all to get the answers he desperately seeks? Will his partner catch an elusive criminal as the clues pile up? Find out in this gripping, well written page turner.

A novel about loyalty, drugs, sex and murder!

Read along in this gritty, raw street tale about a woman who decides to take on a group of dangerous, arrogant and heartless criminals.

The First (A John Smith Thriller)

by Glen Kenner

The first page hits you like a deadly punch to the throat and never lets up!

John Smith is a First, one of a few men that walk among us seemingly as normal as anyone, but with a secret so unimaginable that their very existence is a threat to humanity. But times are changing and the Firsts are eager to live openly and take their rightful place in the world once again. The only thing stopping them is John, who has seen the best and worst of all of mankind and knows that some truths are best kept secret. He has kept his own life simple and unassuming because he knows it’s the only way to stay out of the system and under the radar of world governments, secret organizations, and assassins alike. But when an old enemy shows up on the same day that a beautiful young woman needs his help, John quickly finds himself in the fight of his life against elite hit squads, ruthless psychopathic murders, and a black-ops cutting-edge technology that was specifically designed to track down him and other Firsts like him, all while trying to unravel the mystery of this new woman in his life without getting her killed and keeping her from killing anyone who doesn’t deserve it. From the American Midwest to Syria and Paris, John Smith is both predator and prey, but he can no longer survive on his own, and so with the help of the only people he hopes he can trust and more luck than he deserves, he faces down his fears and takes on his enemies the only way he knows how: with everything he’s got.

Soon Kat is fighting for her life, and even though Jake is by her side, she learns that her new crush is hiding a dark secret far more deadly than the men who want to kill herâ??an otherworldly evil locked behind a wall of iron and stone, waiting to be fed, waiting for a chance to escape.


by Samuel Parker

Having forfeited his youth to the state prison system, Michael moved back to the only home he’d ever known. An empty shell of a man who now lived–if it could be called living–in the still vacant house of his parents in a town with one stoplight. A town that hated him. Had always hated him. And was ready to pick up where the prison system had let off.

Now he’s on the run from men who’ve tried to kill him once; but Michael is more than an ex-con. A powerful, sinister force creeps inside him, threatening and destructive. Who–and what–it will destroy next is the only real question. From the bold voice that brought readers down Purgatory Road comes a new pulse-pounding, spine-rattling tale of vengeance and justice that will have them up all night.
