try my novel out it is a coming of age novel entitled the mercenary birth of a hero

In Edge City there are four types of people: the criminals, the civilians, the police and, finally, the Mercenaries who are the true defense of the city. To escape poverty, young Tobias Ravencroft wants to become a mercenary. That is, until he meets Nikita Malloy, a femme fatale who seems to be hiding something. Why does she seem so interested in Tobias? Discovering he has strange new powers, he finally gets the chance to join the mercenary group called the Storming Tigers.

The Mercenary: Birth Of A Hero

In this universe there are no chosen ones, just ones who chose.

Enter Vallone. It's a town ruled by a vicious tyrant named Contanis and his loyal but highly lethal army. They've managed to do something that many people can only dream of doing. They've made all of Vallone's citizens equal, but this has amounted to little more than equal oppression. The citizens can't stop him and his men, so they can do nothing more than play the role of his mere tormented subjects. Now factor in the mysterious Tablet of Omainu, which can help apply this same ideology to the rest of the world. Unfortunately, Contanis and his people have it. Fortunately, they don't know how to use it yet.

Meanwhile, a team of vagabonds come to Vallone, and thus, complicate this little maniacal game. Together, they're known as Hex Immortal. They're intelligent as well as skilled in combat. Each one of them can offer up a piece of thought-provoking insight, and then at the drop of a hat, take you down. They can mess you up so bad that even God himself wouldn't be able to stomach it. Their mission is to save Vallone and get the Tablet of Omainu before it can be used by the sadistic Contanis or anyone else. This adventure will test their skills as well as themselves. However, the government of Vallone won't give this treasure up willingly. Therefore, it'll stand against them. In synchronicity with it, Hex Immortal and others will do the same and isn't that what it means to be a hero? Now let the adventure come to light and darkness...

Whether they shall stand or fall, they will surely heed the call.
Whether you shall stand or fall, will you also heed the call?

The Depths of Deception (16 five-star reviews)

"Intelligent, compelling." "Hauntingly beautiful." "An adventure tale on the order of LeCarre's The Spy Who Came in from the Cold..."

America has disappeared some years ago. A neo-fascist Party has come to power in the UK. China is on the rise. A submarine hurtles through the cold dark waters of the Atlantic en route to an unknown destination. Only the ship's doctor knows its true mission, but he is not who he appears to be.

A sweeping tale moving from the violent heart of Apartheid South Africa, to the ruins of the United Kingdom, and down to the edge of the world in the frozen Antarctic landscape, The Depths of Deception is a tale of revenge, served as a shatteringly cold dish.

The Dead War Series The Dead War Series: BOOK 1

....A simple balls to the wall zombie tale. The Rotting Zombie therottingzombie.blogspot.co.uk

My suggestion is... you probably don't want to read this one on an full stomach. Go ahead! Jump on over to AMAZON to get a copy of George's zombie tale now! Michael Clutton Tasty Terror tastyterror.blogspot.com

George Cook's Dead War Series is a fun time (IF you think fun is apocalypse of slow-style zombies! We do!). The Madore Brothers necropology.com/

The US Army doesn't run from any enemy, living......or dead!

In the year 2053 the dead walked. Mankind was caught off guard at first but within six years mounted a massive military assault on the dead.

These are the stories of some of those men and women that fought back. These are the stories of some trying to find a "cure". These are the stories of those that are just trying to survive the nightmare of the walking dead. These are the stories of those that caused The Dead War.

Hello all. Just stopping in to do a little blurb about my book, which was recently published. My book can be found here on amazon and on most major e-book distributors. The title of the book is, "Confessions of a Heretic: How a Right Wing, Fundamentalist, Conservative Pastor Became a Leftist, Liberal Heathen".

As one can guess from the title it is the true story of my journey deep into the world of fundamentalist, evangelical Christianity and my journey back out of that world. The first half of the book is simply my memoirs detailing my journey. The second half deals with doctrines espoused by fundamentalist Christians and the problems which I believe those doctrines cause in the lives of the people who hold to those doctrines.

I wish I could say it was a perfect book (I have already found several editing errors), but I hope that people will be able to read it and at least be caused to think. Thank you for allowing me to mention my book here. The link to my book on Amazon is: Confessions of a Heretic: How a Right Wing, Fundamentalist, Conservative Pastor Became a Leftist, Liberal Heathen

If you do happen to read my book and enjoy it, if you write a positive review and let me know (bmac3130@yahoo.com) I will add your name into a drawing for a signed copy of an original copy of the manuscript.

Also, feel free to ask any questions you might have. :)

The Nog Sisters
An adult fairy tale.

"disgusting...witty, funny, quirky, and entertaining." "well written, intriguing and original...twisted and clever"

The Nog Sisters is NOT a story for children.

In a world very close by, on a small island beneath a brown sky, two fairies still believe in the existence of humans.

Their friends, the jungle monkeys think they're crazy. The local giant Worms are nervous...Even the Goblins aren't convinced.

But the fairy sisters, Fritha and Tirna Nog have other ideas...

In a world very close by, two little creatures set out on a big adventure.

Story Time

over 37- 4 and 5 star reviews-nominated as the best read of 2011 by the PRG- only $2.99
She has drawn from the many scientific and geological projection and fears published by noted individuals about the future of the northwest - earthquake in Seattle, eruption of Mt. Rainer (Remember Mt St. Helens?), Yellowstone Park area along with demonstrated human nature to describe a frightening but possible disaster scenario. One only has to observe the local terrain and land forms, still smoking volcanoes, past lava flows and fault lines to realize similar disasters occurred in the past and remain a likely future possibility. The only real question is not "if" but "when"! When the even occures I hope the aliens will be there to rescue. I recommend reading the book, but you can expect to loose some sleep as you lay awake pondering the questions of what if and when. Scary thoughts!

Shorts, Bombs and Wall Street Dons

Wall Street in the late `90s was a wild place where everyone tried to get an advantage to make money. Some got inside information, others had politicians in their pocket and then there was Morgan Merrill who's strategy was wholly original, very illegal and so out of the box that no one would ever consider it. Not even the mafia capos who's money he managed. "Shorts, Bombs and Wall Street Dons" will discuss this groundbreaking strategy and those who were trying to stop it.

ONLY 99 CENTS!

Canopy: Volume 1

My science fiction romance, Canopy, is available on ebook now for $.99!

As Earth's pollution problems increase in the year 2042, Jash Lepitt has decisions to make. Does he take the responsible route, fusing by inhaling DOOGS: specialized alien species of gnats that will genetically enhance him? Or does he remain flawed; be discriminated against by a society rewarding fused people? Desperate to win over Lissy Darrish, he questions it because she's a Danat-a purist opposed to changing the body. In addition to her convictions, she's also falling in love with a Danat, Tryst Navar. Devoting his time to protecting her from Tryst is harder than it seems for Jash. Tryst witnessed a friend of his being attacked by aggressive DOOGS while on the job building houses in the treetops. What will happen when all three of them become involved in the secrecy of the canopy's DOOGS? And will Lissy risk being with Jash when being intimate can possibly contaminate her?

Project Hope - a contemporary dystopian novel.

In the Zones, a troubled society walled off from the outside world, nineteen-year-old Dylan lives in the crossfire between rampaging gangs known as hoods, and tyrannical government guards.

Trapped in a brutal reality, he confronts the helplessness of his situation the only way he can-through his art. By day, he takes on the role of protector, caring for his little sister, Lil. By night, he lives a secret life, breaking the curfew and braving the dangerous Zones to paint the perimeter wall with his subversive images. But with the eye of the warden upon him, and the hoods tightening their grip on the Zones, inaction is no longer an option. He must do the one thing no one else has dared to-unite the downtrodden residents and reawaken their hope.
