Jack Montgomery is a freelance investigator for the CDC's Global Health Center, and soon stumbles upon a medical mystery that threatens to change everything he thought he knew about the world--and might change everything he thought he knew about himself.  As the pieces of a world-wide conspiracy fall into place, Jack awakens a sleeping giant that could crush him without a thought.  One that has now turned its attention to him.

The machineries of government grind slowly, and one man with nothing left to lose just might have a chance.  A chance to free the sleepers.

Sera Storme

Eight years ago, Sera Storme was forced to give up her baby daughter, Lani, for safekeeping. On the run from the Trillium criminal organization, she became a bounty hunter and mercenary for hire, taking jobs where she could, staying low-key. 

On her most dangerous assignment yet, she and Lani are reunited. Sera Storme is a hotheaded bounty hunter, a crack shot and a master of unarmed combat. Being a mother was not something she was prepared for. 

Now Sera must track down and defeat Xane Mori, a dangerous psychic from Mars, in the Sol system, while keeping eight-year-old Lani safe from the Trillium soldiers hunting them. Her only ally is the icy Sabian Delain. Sera’s mission will force her to confront her past, and to find a way to forge a bond with the daughter she left behind.

Lockheed Elite

After Anders Lockheed unwittingly hires an undercover operative, he takes the bait that draws the attention of the very mastermind he’s been avoiding.

Now Anders must flip the military and use them to pull off a monster heist to extract his crew from the heat mounting from both sides of the law.

the robot & Roy: and the Big, Kosher, Dinner: Chapter One

If you have to know more than the title tells...

Let's just say the dinner isn't so much 'Kosher;' by either definition, as it is... not really a part of Chapter One anyway... directly, anyhow.

It's really more about an arcane relationship in a world not necessarily too far away from our own and the philosophical minutia that lies therein, ‘Pseudo-(Philia)sophically speaking;’ if you were worried the kids would be getting into some sort of romp through a Robo-Socratic-love based story.

Which they won’t.

There’s like- Blade Runner and Japanese Anime for that.

The Swiss UFO Mystery; Book One: Conversations with an Alien

Jack, an American kicking around Europe, meets a beautiful brunette, an alien-human hybrid, at a UFO conference in Zurich and she invites him into her confidence re an effort to save humans from nuclear war and other impending disasters. The CIA, Russian FSB, a student terrorist group from Berlin, and a group of expat Russians planning to undermine the dictatorship in their homeland, all mix together in this international thriller with sci-fi overtones, while some other interesting characters come and go.

Vulpine One

Andrus Ovega is accused of murdering his own parents. He is a fugitive from Earth and AWOL from the space army of the International Space eXploration Commission. Left for dead aboard a burning ship, he is forced to assume the role of a notorious mercenary, "Vulpine One." But as he hunts for hope for the future, his past chases him through the cosmos. He'll need all the weaponry, cunning and help from the artificial intelligence "Foxtrot" to survive the criminal underground, corrupt government agencies, evil secret societies and space mutated monsters as he searches for revenge and clues to the origins of the mysterious order of Vulpine. 

The Power Of Creatures

2168, the last human survivors have fled to a remote island in the Pacific Ocean. Jeffery Reid has received intel that a missile will end all human life tonight. As a last resort, Jeffery and his assistant Maria has sent futuristic items into the past to eight warriors, in the hope they can change the future.

Each warrior will come against a supernatural creature. It's down to them to change the future. Teamwork and communication are essential. They have the ability to pass items between time and space, but will this really help them?

A fight to save the world and the human race. Can changing the past really change the shape of the future? Or will the ending always remain the same? Fate is fate after all, right?

The Death of All Ghosts is set in 1692 during the Salem Witch Trials. Our main character, Lora, is a ghotamery (someone who can see, touch and talk to ghosts). The incantation to pass ghosts on to the other side no longer works, and ghosts are coming to her for help; but with the witch trials surrounding her, she'll have to be discreet and be careful of who she can trust.

Army of Zombies Dexteria is at war, her coven is severely outnumbered compared to the growing zombie army. How do you kill zombies on a mass scale?

Vampire Sovereign Vampire King, Callum Knight, has had the toughest few years, from being in the wrong place at the wrong time to learning vampire life to becoming the ruler of the UK & Ireland. Now people want his power, his reign. It's to kill or be killed. To be Vampire Sovereign he'll need to defeat Queen Rachelle of the USA & Canada. It's not as easy as it sounds.

The Hunt for the Truth James' wife and kids were murdered by werewolves, he is on the hunt to expose their existence. Is truth really worth it, especially when James and Rachel's test of friendship comes into play?

They Reap What They Sow is set on Ribald's home planet Beschala, three clans coexist in harmony. When fire and ice attack Beschala, it's down to Ribald to fight for his life and the future of humanity.

The Knowledge of Creatures It's been a long wait for Kate and Alex who has helped each hero with their mission, now it's their turn but are they up to the task? Can they really stop the extinction of the human race? 

Crossing the Streams

Non-human romance. Tarot-powered difference engines. The bureaucracy of the gate to Hell. These and more appear in this anthology of strange stories by Jeremy Zimmerman. This anthology collects five genre-bending tales from fantasy to steampunk to cyberpunk.

“I won’t spoil the ending, but I will offer that the imagery in this tale is so wonderful that the settings sometimes transported me away from the main character’s conflict. The scenes in this story, like Impressionist art, consist of ordinary subjects displayed in mesmerizingly vacillating light. Whereas I usually care most about plot and about character development, these descriptions were so robust that I would gladly read additional pages of Zimmerman’s work just to reimmerse myself in his language.”
– KJ Hannah Greenberg, Tangent, regarding “A Crazy Kind of Love”

“Unchained Melody is a sharp, beautiful blow to the heart. Zimmerman wrote a heroine who is recognizable; a woman who is defining herself, on her terms.”
– Lillian Cohen-Moore, author of The Imperial Companion, and Hatavat Chalom

Machinery of Man

Explore this exciting new story by the author of The Everything Factor (2014)

 Everything we've known is wrong! ​Prepare for a truth that will shake humanity to its core!

Machinery of Man follows Doug Vasiter's visit to the hamlet of Bandigan Bay as he oversees the production of a new Denathynol plant. Denathynol is a revolutionary new fuel source mixing minimal amounts of oil with natural materials found in the soils surrounding meteor impact zones.

Though the project can provide much needed employment to Bandigan Bay residents, while also serving as the first step in extending mankind's warranty on Earth amid our impending energy crisis, there also exists a sect of people aggressively  and strangely opposed to any new development.

A series of seemingly odd, "abort" messages across modern day technological devices, peculiar acts of vandalism and mysteriously cold, detached people all culminate in a mind bending truth.

Everything that people have regarded as facts about who and what we are as a species, where we come from, and the evolution of life itself, will be completely rewritten.

The truth will either set everyone free, or destroy everything in the process.

One man's passionate project, designed to be socially and environmentally responsible, will end up being the very thing that the fate of our entire universe rest upon.

Wings of Silver and Blood

After a thousand years of protecting the last of humanity, the City of Gabriel is dying. When it goes, the domed city will either be the womb that gives birth to the next step in human evolution, or it will become the largest tomb on Earth. Below the city, inside a vast warren of caves, Elliott Dawning awakens to find that the last three years of his life have been taken from him. His will, his body, his very identity, has been usurped and wiped away until the moment he opens his eyes. His body has been changed, more so than the rest of the humans inside the domed city. He begins his third life as the unstrung puppet trying to find his sister and stay away from the artificial archangel that had abducted him. By the end, Elliott will be forced to either take up the role of puppet master, or condemn a hundred million people to death. 

Sarah Dawning has known loss in her life. When she lost her parents, her brother kept her from giving up. When her brother died, she anchored herself to the Holy Order of Archivists and the man she loves, Bishop Galen Rostum. Together they will learn that the city's Archangel A.I. has plans for both of them, and their love for each other will be the catalyst that ignites the terrible purpose hidden within Sarah. 

When brother and sister find each other again, they will launch revolutions, unleash monsters, give rise to miracles, see the birth of magic and legend in a world of technology, and perhaps discover something about who and what they have become. That's assuming they survive, of course. 

War Eternal

     In a future where wars are waged for ratings, and the truth hidden from humanity, Colonel Damian Randel has learned secrets that only a career military man could have access to.  Forty years after his enlistment with Smithfield Communications, he will sacrifice the life he has earned to tell the galaxy the truth.

What does he know? How did he find out? Follow this serial of his career to learn the truth for yourself!

An Opera In Space

The year is 2157, and the crew of ASC Fermata has, like so many others following the destruction of Earth, taken to the stars in search of work. Follow this ragtag crew of singers and musicians (and a kitsune) on their quest to stage their original opera, The Y2K Chronicles, while repeatedly finding themselves in baffling, humorous situations among colorful worlds.

Elsewhere Unknown

Elsewhere Unknown chronicles the life of a resistance leader's daughter long after the war has ended and the enemy stands victorious. The debut novel by Michael Leonard, mixing new adult themes with urban fantasy.

As the daughter of a former resistance leader suffering from dementia, Lenith Thaymen has blended into a simple life among the residents of an abandoned pedestrian mall for the past four years. A fire in one of the shops has alerted the forces of the Chimayri to their location. It’s only a matter of hours before everything changes.

Join Lenith as she fights to adapt to a hostile culture, reunite with lost love, ignite an inner strength, and resist becoming the enemy she was taught to loathe.

Ardent's Contract

Man is bound by it. The world is fed by it.

The grand Contract pulses until the day it expires and man dies.

The Ardent of legend must decide for all.

 

Tyrants rule while their vassals wield gun and sword. Magic exists that gifts body and mind. Buildings sprout from nothing while men summon destructive elements. Technology is given, for a price that is not quite clear.

All is given by the contract. 

Emilyn and Izhan may have shared a womb but their view of the world could not be any more different. The twin brothers have been placed onto the center stage of the city, gifted with the ability to determine its fate. 

An undeveloped society gifted with the technology of the future. Vurosis is a paradise to the content, an opportunity to the ruthless and a prison to the disenfranchised. All is granted by the contract, binding agreements that citizens enter into for power and prestige within the city. There is a new revolution being born below the streets. Can an unlikely hero destroy paradise and end the contract forever?

Ardent’s Contract is a story of love, friendship and brotherhood amidst a revolution. It combines high fantasy with strong elements of science fiction. Action, magic, adventure, intrigue, and romance are all present. The culture of Vurosis is explored heavily, bringing its vivid imagery to life.
