From the Author

The first episode was written in hopes of being chosen as a Kindle Single. As it grew, I realized there was a lot more to the Bachelor Battles than a single short story. There is a rebellion brewing against the Network, and the Pruett family will be at the center of it.

She was watching me, evaluating my reaction, and I wondered why it mattered so much to her. Candice owned me. If she chose to register us for breeding, who was I to argue?
"Do you have children, Daniel?"
Raw Pain. "Yes."
She was reading my face for what I didn't say. I could tell she wanted me to open up, but that was a ghost I shared with no one, and I stayed silent, trying to mend the rift in my heart... again. I had to every time the thought of being a father and never seeing the child tore me apart from the inside.
"I might be able to find them for you... if you give me details on their mothers."
Stunned into shock again, I gaped at her with my mouth open. Why would she do that?
"How many?"
I forced my mouth to work. "Two."
"It was recorded?"
I nodded, not allowing myself to hope. "Through the Games."
"I'll see what I can find out."
Her offer came easily, along with a tone that said maybe I'd misjudged this violent female in a lot of ways. It allowed me to form a question of my own.
"If you find them, will I... can I see them? Even if they don't know I'm there?"
She studied me with those unreadable eyes, but after a week, I had picked up a bit about my new owner. I sensed she held a deep sympathy for the torment I'd just revealed.
"If I can arrange it."
She didn't make a false promise or a claim she couldn't back up. It sent that hope I'd denied into my heart and spilling out of my mouth. "Please! I have to know if they're..."
I stopped, about to let go of a secret I'd been guarding for years.
Candice raised a brow. "If they're what?"
I dropped my eyes and hoped she missed the tremor in my voice. "If they're suffering like you and all the others... or if they're immune."

More About the Author

I'm Angie(Pen name)

Little pleases me more than to explore the dark fantasy and horror stories in my head. Knowing other people like them is second only to the magic of this new career I've chosen. As a die-hard Cincinnatian, I much prefer writing to the stresses of being a Taxicab dispatcher. Thank you for making my dreams possible, and for looking at this page!

Now that the pleasantries are out of the way, lets you and I take a little stroll. There's a story I need to let out of its cage and I think it's one you need to hear. It's about the end of the world as we know it...

Note: Many of my books were removed until the new editor (ePubMasters) could get them into top shape. It was clear from the reviews, that we had a lot of work to do. Right now, we have 2 of those files finished and back online for your reading pleasure. The remaining books will return as soon as we finish them.
The edited files are:
The Survivors: Book One
On The Road: Book Two
We are currently working on Safe Haven: Book Three.

Note: Please delete your current copy of these books before you try to download the newest, or you'll get the same file you had.

This book was horrible! The idea is good but no background info on the story about how the situation came about...writing was poor --not enough background info on characters--not worth buying! This book was so short--DO NOT BUY!
