For young Freya, keeping her brother hidden is the only real option.

Enemies of the state, Freya must stand between her family and the forces of a fearful world. Although her brother may not be human, there is little else separating her and those of the blue skin.

BLUE SKIN is the first book in a 5 part vampire dystopian, thriller horror series.



Even the Wingless (Princes’ Game Book 1)

by M.C.A. Hogarth

M.C.A. Hogarth’s “Princes’ Game” series is peculiar and compelling (and peculiarly compelling) space opera. I really like it […] because of its determination to make the reader productively uncomfortable. – Tor.com

The Alliance has sent twelve ambassadors to the Chatcaavan Empire; all twelve returned early, defeated. None of their number have been successful at taking that brutal empire to task for their violations of the treaty. None have survived the vicious court of a race of winged shapechangers, one maintained by cruelty, savagery and torture.

Lisinthir Nase Galare is the Alliance’s thirteenth emissary. A duelist, an esper and a prince of his people, he has been sent to bring an empire to heel. Will it destroy him, as it has his predecessors? Or can one man teach an empire to fear… and love?

Caution: This book is violent and contains mature/difficult situations. Readers who prefer spoilers before engaging with triggers may want to read the Reader’s Guide: Princes’ Guide Summaries first.

Danger’s Halo: (Holly Danger Book 1)

by Amanda Carlson

153 years in the future, Earth doesn’t look much like it used to.

Holly Danger’s current assignment, gleaned from a set of foggy instructions and a handful of coin stuffed into a slot, is to pick up a street kid who’s about to terminate himself off a cliff. And, as a rule, she doesn’t turn down currency. Her job as a salvager keeps her fed and clothed above the norm, which isn’t saying much.

The norm in this city is a scrape-by existence in a post-apocalyptic world, where the rain never stops, food is always scarce, and the elite have deserted the ranks in search of something better. Picking up this urchin won’t take much time, even if he’s located outside city limits. Her craft is fast, her weapons deadly, and her tech has been optimized as well as it can be for a climate clogged with iron dust.

But things take a big turn when she decides to become the boy’s guardian instead of hand him over. Outskirts have descended on the city, and their plans don’t include playing nice. When her crew is backed against a graphene wall, it’s a good thing her Gem is primed and ready to go. It’s almost as deadly as she isâ?¦

Defending each other from the evils of men and creatures alike, the last humans form separate camps and race to unravel the mystery of the deserted cities, the swarming creatures, and the threat to humankind. …with the possibility of involvement from other planets.

But mysteries still remain.
Sam and Bohai team up to find answers, making new alliances along the way. Another camp led by a mad scientist is racing to find the same answers, but for a very different reason.
A post-apocalyptic science fiction adventure…blending together elements of monsters, survivalists, special abilities and the mysteries of ancient alien artifacts.

NASA’s 1st Mission to Mars – For What?!!!

by Michael D’Agostino

Penniless, flat broke, sleeping in a cardboard box in a tent city on the South Side of Chicago, this formerly undistinguished man, Stanley Marczek, becomes the first man to walk on Mars. How is it possible? Why would NASA select a civilian, non-career astronaut for the mission? Obviously, living in a confined space for nineteen months for the journey to Mars, is one consideration. Another, his screening test results prove to be exceptional, better than all other candidates. And this is a man of grit and incredible courage. He accepts NASA’s offer, seeing it as an opportunity to remake his life, earn a cool three million bucks, and return to Earth a hero. But the story isn’t just about Stanley Marczek, (aka Joksey), and the mission to Mars. It is also about his relationships with his loyal friends: Gnidek, a Viet Nam veteran, his dog Chichi, his girlfriend Hannah, and all his friends at tent city. His journey is clouded with almost insurmountable personal and technical challenges, and it is his friends who provide invaluable moral support; they are all in it together. But what is the catch? There has to be a catch. The catch is that Joksey is a man of strong will who freely expresses his mind. So when the mission is complete, and Stanley Marczek returns to Earth, he publicly questions the wisdom of all manned missions to Mars, to the embarrassment of NASA. And he does not mince words. He tells it like it is, straight out! This novel features realistic science-fiction. Although it is a comedy at heart, it makes a very poignant argument about manned missions to Mars. As a contemporary work, it contains profanity.

Tempting Trade (Desolate Lands Book 1)

by Skye Jones

In a world gone to hell,
I was taken, threatened,
Destroyed.

Or so I thought…

It was a tempting trade,
A deal made with danger.

They would protect me,
Keep me safe,
Be my sanctuary.

But I would give them my body,
Give up my inhibitions,
Give them everything.
Four men–and they all wanted me.

But everything has a catch,
And this was no exception.

It was a tempting trade, my body for their protection.

With the balance of Power in the Daylon Empire hanging precariously in the hands of Deelo’s brother, the self-crowned emperor of the New Daylon Empire, Deelo must decide to whom he should lead to the Portal and grant these destructive powers, and whom he should leave to die.

But Deelo must act quickly and decisively, because the Portal goes both ways. The real invaders are coming, and they’re not just coming for the Daylon’s territories: they’re coming for their souls.

“The Portal is an intriguing action adventure with fully flushed out social and political systems, and a main character that struggles with moral decisions while forced into precarious positions. All the while, there are people being tortured and battles a plenty in search of The Portal, but is this religious icon a saving grace… or the “E”-day for everyone, an end to humanity as they know it.”

“For the sake of a good author’s future please do download the book and email the author a few edits.”

The only starships that come are the ones to take people awayâ?¦

Except for one.

Cut off from the nets, hunted, and betrayed, quantum hacker Denis Richards is only too happy to accept the strange job offer that promises him a way off Earth, and a place on the crew of a small starship operating on the edge of the third horizon. The fact that the ship is based on Rocquamport, a desert colony that doesn’t even have a Charter from the United Planets Congress, suits him even better.

However, when he arrives, the rough, drunken Captain who greets him is very different from the suave, polished, young woman who interviewed him, and his place on the crew is much more dangerous than he was led to believe. Because the Captain has enemies, and her ship is much more than a simple trader. But none of that will matter if Den can’t even survive his first week with the Captainâ?¦

The Captain is the first episode in Jordan T. Higa’s Series The Captain’s Inferno, a swashbuckling, sci-fi, space opera adventure.

Within the Darkness (Wisteria Book 2): A Dark Fantasy Dystopian With Demons and Monsters – Mature Content

by Shelby Lamb

“You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you mad.”

â?? Aldous Huxley

Aubrey has done it. She has teleported herself to “the hidden domain” and have managed to bring along her dream boy, Nathan, and nemesis/ex-besty Adelaide. But how could this be? They were all just at a party. No one knew getting into the backyard shed and saying the “magic words” would work. And the three are absolutely stunned. But the world Aubrey thought would be a wonderful paradise is actually a nightmare. As beautiful and enchanting as it is, Wisteria is like jumping down the rabbit hole with the Devil waiting on the sidelines.

The people are different in this world. They are monsters, and not just physically. The Moss Wall is supposed to serve as a protection, separating the demons from the non-demons, but that doesn’t mean Aubrey and her friends are safe. Non-demon Aristocrats are nasty and cruel, indulging in their favorite daily past-time: the torture of the red maidens.

And as for the handsome demon boy who wants Aubrey’s soul? “You’ll never escape,” warned fairies swooping down on her.

But Aubrey, Nathan, and Adelaide won’t go down without a fight. They simply must make it to the safe house and find their way out of the realm. Thankfully The Underground Annual is on its way. It is the biggest party, an explosive rave that happens once a year. And now it is their only window of opportunity. But will their plan succeed?

Author note: “Honestly I am sorry if any reviewers think Aubrey is too whiney and immature and the book is too dark. But I got to stay true. If you really look into the book you will see that Aubrey is suffering from borderline personality disorder. This is a severe mental illness and Aubrey wasn’t created to glamorize mental illness. BPD is a very painful disorder. To be honest Aubrey in a lot of ways is me. And I wrote her for anyone else out there who is just as tortured mentally. Sure it adds another layer to the horror and psychological darkness of this book. But in the end you will see how she gets through and I hope it will help anyone who is suffering the same. Honestly having borderline personality disorder is so hard. In the end, I wasn’t writing for everyone. I wrote the book for other girls and boys like me. I tried to find books out there with other girls just like me but to me they all felt cookie cutter and like I couldn’t relate. If you get offended by “dramatic” or “sensitive” girls seen as “weak” and not people actually suffering from an emotional disorder and STRONG to still be alive, then I’m sorry this book series (Wisteria) or maybe none of my books is for you.”

Love, Shelby

Killer Minds: Near future science fiction

by Stephen Sackleigh

Simon Carlisle investigates a death in a world where killing is near impossible

The population has brain implants that prevent violent actions!

Simon Carlisle is a police Technical Support Officer who is called to the scene of a violent death in a world where this is an extreme rarity. The population has cranial implants from birth that prevent them from committing violent acts. He is hiding a secret of his own – He has mental control over his implant.

In this near future story, Simon is called on to attend the location of anyone who has died to carry out the initial examination. His ‘patch’ is Wimbledon in South London and one October night he is called out to examine the body of a young woman who has been stabbed to death and left on the street. It should be near impossible for this to have happened as everyone has a microcircuit embedded in their head that causes the secretion of calming hormones when they become stressed. Violent crime is virtually unknown.

Carlisle keeps secret from his family and work colleagues the knowledge that he can, if he concentrates, effectively turn off his implant. He has a remarkable mental ability that allows him to interface directly with electrical devices and this even extends to the nervous system of the human body.

Intrigued by the extraordinary murder, he checks the autopsy report when he returns to the office and finds that the case is even stranger than he first thought as this woman had no brain implant. He decides that he will make an investigation in his own time as he is not a detective and cannot do this officially. He uncovers a world that he did not know existed but, in so doing, he puts his life and the lives of his loved ones in danger.

The murder victim’s implant has been removed by a shadowy organisation that soon becomes aware that Carlisle is delving into their affairs. Government agents want the information to be kept confidential and soon he finds that his colleagues turn against him. He finds himself friendless and in grave danger.

Sometimes super powers aren’t all they’re cracked up to be…

Kate has enough problems – a boss that’s a little too friendly, a sex life that’s non-existent, and a cat with zero tolerance for late meals. The last thing she needs is to be kidnapped, even if it is by a hot Brit.

Afterwards, she’s mysteriously returned and has no memory of what happened. She learns, with the help of an eccentric sexy woman, that she’s been modified – given a power unique to her talents. Sounds cool, right? It would be if she knew how to use it without killing everyone around her…

All credit cards have stopped working. Today. This morning.

What cash you have in your wallet is it. ATMs and bank systems are down. You can’t get gas, groceriesâ?¦ Commerce has essentially come to a halt. Such is the backdrop of THE BACK DOOR MAN.

Our society is computercentric. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. We’re plugged in. Managing our finances online. Downloading apps for our iPhone. Reading the WSJ on our Kindle.

There are things out there on the cutting edge we don’t even know we need to fear. THE BACK DOOR MAN takes us there.

We see it through the eyes of James Kolinsky, a simple family man who works in information security. His day goes from bad to worse when he discovers that his greatest fear is his fault and what’s happened to him has happened to millions of others.

He’s been set up. His familyâ??make that the worldâ??has been taken hostage. The next twenty-four hours we find out what James Kolinsky is really made of.

Interview with the Author

Q – What makes the Feast of Weeds series special?â?¨

An epidemic ravaging the human population. A world spiraling into chaos. People doing whatever it takes to survive. I wanted to write something I would love to read. I’ve always been drawn to the post-apocalyptic genre and thought about end-of-the-world books I’ve loved–Stephen King’s The Stand, Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower. But also recent stories like The Girl With All the Gifts, The Passage, and even Stranger Things. I’ve always found stories with big epidemics/events that reinvent the world so thrilling. I also love getting into some of the science, like the genetic engineering, that would make the situations plausible.

Feast of Weeds gives you some of that classic Walking Dead zombie fare, but…without giving too much away…I guarantee you’ve never read a zombie series like Feast of Weeds before.â?¨

Even though my cast of characters are teenagers I’ve definitely had plenty of adults write me about how much they’ve enjoyed the series. I think Feast of Weeds hits the sweet spot of older Young Adult that will appeal to plenty of adults too.â?¨

No matter what your age, the Feast of Weeds series is designed to keep you furiously turning those pages.â?¨

Q – What order should I read the books in?â?¨

I think the complete series would be most enjoyable in the following sequence:
–Germination (prequel short novel)â?¨
–Contamination
–Infestation
–Eradicationâ?¨

Q – Why should readers give these books a try?â?¨

The prequel hit #5 on the New York Times and #8 on the USA Today bestseller lists. I’ve gotten tons of emails from readers letting me know how much they loved Feast of Weeds (stay-up-all-night-even-with-work-the-next-day love). But more than that, as a reader myself, I am always looking for the next Stranger Things, The Passage, The Girl With All The Gifts. THAT’S the kind of story I hope you’ll find in Feast of Weeds. Smart. Dangerous. Gritty. With rip-your-heart-out intensity (literally and figuratively in some cases).â?¨

Feast of Weeds is a fast, dark apocalyptic ride. Just remember…nothing is what it seems.â?¨

Cast in Sand (Atlas Cycle)

by Dustin Porta

On a failed expedition to the heart of an ancient space station, Edwina wakes in a land of fierce warriors and drifting sands, in a mechanical body that is not her own.

With no memory of why, or how many bodies have come before this, one thing is clear: she’s trapped and time is running out.

An ancient citadel looms over the barren land and a cruel sultan rules the scattered people. Edwina finds a new body, one real enough to feel human, and strong enough to challenge the sultan. But the android body comes with human weaknesses, and like the others it has a mind of its own.

When her allies begin to quarrel, Edwina must find a way to make empathy and hatred work together. To do that, she may just have to listen to what the android is telling her.

This is Station Atlas, where the fall of humanity is long forgotten, where history becomes fantasy, science becomes magic, and basic survival is high adventure in a strange, fragile world.

Los hombres y mujeres conviven en una sociedad alienada que no cuestiona el pasado, el presente o el futuro; el elemnto cohesionador y que les permite seguir adelante es el miedo… miedo a lo desconocido, a lo diferente. Miedo a los mestizos.

La historia reflexiona sobre el interés de unos por subir y la necesidad de otros por bajar, una intriga constante llena de juegos de poder, venganza y odio. Se trata de una aventura constante por alumbrar lo desconocido, redescubrir el pasado para poder hacer frente al futuro.

A message from the author

Please read before downloading

In October 2014, I decided to write a little book inbetween the Snatchers series (a little tradition of mine) and began writing a story about a father and son that were trying to survive in the Zombie apocalypse. I called it Dead Dayz

In December 2014, I decided to ditch the first draft and concentrate on a new Snatchers book, Snatchers 5: The Dead Don’t Yield. I didn’t like the finished Dead Dayz, but some individuals who had read the book liked the father and son story, so I decided to incorporate it into the fifth Snatchers book.

The story was about David Johnson and his son, Harry, (Paul and Kyle Dickson), and I saved the best bits from the Dead Dayz book and put it into the Snatchers book.

The following you are about to read is the original Dead Dayz book. If you have read the Snatchers series, then this book still has many parts/chapters that you haven’t read before, but the story will certainly be familiar. And if you haven’t read the Snatchers series before, then everything I have talked about doesn’t matter.

Dead Dayz was initially a standalone novel, before it was dissected for the Snatchers 5 book that was eventually released in February 2015, and it seemed a shame to leave it sitting on my hard drive in its original form.

Abducted By The Fire King (Viking Mate Book 1)

by J. S. Wilder

Two dying alien races and one human female. What’s the result? A dating agency. 
Stevan, the leader of the Fire Planet, wants to save his people, once he shifts and lands on Earth. He abducts Catherina in the hope of preventing the races from facing extinction. The women are no longer able to mate and the first birth in centuries has resulted in a stillbirth.
They discover that they need a way to connect the aliens together. Catherina uses her skills of working for a dating agency to connect them.
Catherina has a dead end job back on Earth, with the rise of technology – dating agencies have become a thing of the past. She enjoys bringing the two races together. Her focus shifts from connecting the races to a hot passionate night with the seven-foot leader.
Sereni has other ideas as she wants to claim Stevan and she doesn’t want a small, pale-blooded human to take her place as Stevan’s rightful mate. 
Sereni is out to get Catherina before Stevan begs Catherina to stay. 
Can Catherina win against Sereni for the heart of the leader?

Author’s Note:
This was previously called The Fire Planet Vikings. Now, it has a new title and cover. The content of the book is the same as was previously published. It is a stand-alone novel and the first book in the Viking Mate series. I hope you enjoy the action-packed adventure with plenty of steam in this alien love triangle romance.

Zero (The Fringe Collection Book 1)

by Jacob Whaler

A Trump-like character ends democracy, casts out the poor and builds a wall 1,000 meters high. 150 years later, his descendants have infinite wealth and control the Sanctuary, a high-tech paradise for the rich where money equals rank. A young woman from the slum vows to tear down the Wall and end the madness. When she hops on her chopper to kick off the revolution, she’s an instant celebrity, and everything changes.

It all started with the first President Quinn, a master of propaganda and manipulation. After winning the Presidency, he sparked a civil war and took over the USA as a virtual dictator. Six generations later, the wealthy live in the Sanctuary, insulated from the outside world by the Wall.

On the other side of the Wall is the Fringe, a vast slum of bombed-out buildings and ruins left over from the civil war. There, the poor toil in toxic waste plants and massive brain labs where their minds are hijacked to generate computing power for the Sanctuary elite. In the midst of its grinding poverty, the Fringe has evolved a dangerous new idea that may trump all the Quinn family has achieved: a society that functions without money.

Armed with this idea, a young woman sets out from the Fringe to unite the people on both sides of the Wall. Her goal is simple: capture the attention, and the heart, of the Sanctuary and open its eyes to the truth before it destroys the Fringe.

The Fringe Collection is a series of science fiction/thriller novels set in a dystopian/post-apocalyptic near-future. Each book is a fast-paced read with a strong female protagonist. You’ll be thinking about deep issues in the midst of non-stop action and suspense. The books contain elements of speculative fiction, mystery and cyberpunk in a techno-thriller setting and are recommended for ages 13 through adult.

Each novel in The Fringe Collection is a standalone story; they can be enjoyed in any order.

The alien attacks came out of nowhere and left the entire system reeling, but the aftermath caused twice as much destruction to the old social orders as psypaths like Micah Ariesis and near-humans like the Hathori became scapegoats for an inexplicable devastation…and then rebels against the repressive, reactionary government that rose from the ashes.

The last psypath has one chance at victory for the rebellion…but it’s the Huntress who holds the key.

1776: The Washington Divergence (Infinity Engines: Missions Book 1)

by Andrew Hastie

What if George Washington was killed before taking office?

The year is 1776. New York is on fire. The British fleet are in the harbor, and Special Agent John Anderson still can’t believe he’s here…

It began when the FBI counter-terrorism system picked up suspicious activity at Mount Vernon. Anderson was assigned to find out why a crazy old man dressed as a British Redcoat was trying to break in and how the same guy could show up five minutes later at the Smithsonian.

The Colonel claims he is trying to change the past and prevent the assassination of General Washington. Anderson assumes he’s just off his meds – until the old man runs into a broom closet and disappears.

Infinity Engines: Missions takes you on a journey into an alternate history, one that might have been if it wasn’t for the work of the Oblivion Order and their mission to save the future, by changing the past.

An otherwise ordinary summer trip to the countryside is upended when sixteen-year-old Sarah first hears about the bombs. They’re detonating in every major city in the world, and as far as anyone knows, they don’t stop when power and communications suddenly go down. When her aunt and uncle don’t return from a supply run, Sarah sets out in search of help, but with no idea how she arrived there, she instead wakes up in Elysia, a seaside children’s prison, where the Guardians who watch the gates aren’t the only enemy.

While trying to outwit a gang of perilous teenage thugs who rule Elysia, Sarah and her new friend Atlas sift through propaganda explaining the establishment of the New Order that has put them here. Deeply buried, they discover the existence of a mysterious Failsafe, left by the engineer of the New Order, that promises to return life to normal. With no hope that rescue is coming, it’s up to Sarah and Atlas to find the Failsafe and bring an end to the Watchmaker’s New Order. But first they have to get out of Elysia alive…
