Called To Be A Soldier, by L. Wayne Smalls
Written from the heart and experiences of L. Wayne Smalls, ‘Called To Be A Solider’ personifies the sometimes inaccurate accounts and assumptions made about the personal lives of the nation’s military heroes. Smalls bares all to take readers to the training grounds, onto the battlefields of the Middle East and then all of the way back home

– where the fight for a normal life often continues for many years. It’s heartfelt, shocking yet ultimately uplifting....
The Heirloom, by Edita A. Petrick
Sometimes, what we hunt can capture us.

When CIA Agent, Ted Bester, meets a woman who was publicly buried as an assassin's victim, he’s understandably skeptical of her far-fetched explanation. She expects him to believe she’s tied to the assassin's mind through a four hundred year old locket with an ancient curse on it. And she’s alive because the spell has protected her.

It takes meeting a presence he can’t explain to convince Bester Amelia might be telling the truth. And if she’s right, Bester has a lot more to be worried about than a curse. The unorthodox link between Amelia and the killer shows that he takes inordinate pride in his perfect kill record, and Bester knows that it's only a matter of...

Due to the high likelihood of an android attack, the security precautions are greater than ever. Nonetheless, androids manage to infiltrate the ship, leading into a disaster.

Yet Tito's own problems are big enough as he finds out the hard way t...

This Is A Time Machine, by K. Enola
'I am dying, in a few seconds they will find my corpse splattered on the pavement, the Santa clause suit soaked in my blood and a dumb look on my face. I am dying; if the revolver pointing at my head fails then the fall will do the trick, so I guess I've got options haha. I am dying, and all I can see is a little boy waving a finger at me, disappointed, pouting, wishing he never had to grow up to become me. I am dying and... holy shit, I am dying. I am dying.'

In his final moments, a mentally unstable New Yorker attempts to save himself by altering the memories that are flashing by before his eyes, hoping to change his past and avoid his imminent demise....
