But she can only dismiss it for so long.

Caitlin Paine, her mom, knows too well what’s happening to her daughter. She underwent the same transformation to vampire once, centuries ago. But now, in the present day, as a mere human, she has no memory of it. All she has is the journal she found in the attic—her mysterious vampire journal—telling of her exploits in another time and place, and of the vampire race being eradicated. But was there one exception to the rule? Could it be that Scarlet, her daughter, is the last remaining vampire on earth?

As Scarlet tries to fight who she’s becoming, she also tries to fight her intense feelings for Blake, a boy in her grade who she has a crush on. She can’t tell, though, if he’s into her, and with the big Halloween dance just days away, the pressure is on. She would do anything for Blake to ask her. But Vivian, the meanest of the popular girls, is also on Blake’s radar, and she’ll do anything to make Blake hers—and to make Scarlet’s life a living hell.

Luckily Scarlet has her own clique of friends to back her up, including her best friends Maria and Jasmin. They, too, have guy troubles—but it isn’t until Sage appears, the mysterious new boy, that her friends become obsessed. Scarlet finds herself attracted to him, too—and is surprised when it is her, of all the girls in the school, that he pays attention to. But her mind is set on Blake, at least for now, and she continues to hope he’ll ask her to the dance.

Just when it seems that Scarlet has what she wants, her body changes. Soon it may be impossible for her to be near her fellow humans. Soon, she may have to choose between her desire to live and her desire for love.

It’s the end of the world as they know it!

The planet Darklands doesn’t know this yet, but their days are numbered. Life as they know it is about to come to a violent end and they are not prepared for the battle that is about to take place.

Wildy is a gang leader in Darklands City, and he is the most notorious criminal throughout the land. His gang is so large, and so infamous, that he is considered both a military threat and a law enforcement threat. No human being outside of his gang has seen his face and lived to describe him.

In his final battle as Darklands City’s biggest gang, he faces the one being that could destroy him and who has come for that sole purpose. Wildy stands in front of Draygon, the second most powerful supernatural being on the entire planet.

As Wildy faces down Draygon, the Warrior appears out of nowhere and shows Wildy the one thing he never thought he had: his Soul. The Warrior saves Wildy’s life, and then disappears, asking nothing of Wildy. Yet this glimpse of his own Soul, seen through the eyes of the Warrior, leaves Wildy desperate to find his Soul, and to do so he must find the Warrior.

In his search for the Warrior, Wildy meets Rusty; a young man who has been sequestered in The Fortress of Light. Wildy’s meeting with Rusty is no accident, and while Rusty does not recognize the Warrior by that name, he does know him by another name. Wildy is stepping into dangerous territory, and the last thing he wants is a young neophyte on his hands, but the only way he will find the Warrior will be for him to take Rusty.

Soon these two are running a gang even larger than the gang Wildy ran in Darklands City. Together they would lead a new band with a worldwide reach. If Wildy thought he was notorious before, that was nothing compared to the fame and infamy he would see at this moment. He and Rusty would become both heroes and villains, depending on which side of this ultimate battle you wished to side.

LZR-1143: Perspectives
In a world overrun by the living dead, every victim has a story. These are some of those stories. This collection of six short stories from a world ravaged by the LZR-1143 virus tell the tale of six different people, all of whom fell victim, in different ways, to the deadly plague. 

From the pilot of a commercial aircraft, overwhelmed in midair, to the lonely soldier stranded high above a world of the undead, the six characters each face their own fears and mortality in different ways. 

This 20,000 word short-story collection features a unique selection of characters from the original zombie novel by Bryan James, LZR-1143: Infection, and from the recently released sequel, LZR-1143: Evolution. Each character appears only fleetingly in the longer novels, but each has their own unique thread in the LZR-1143 storyline, all of which are exposed in these short excerpts from their final hours alive. 

The collection includes The Pilot, The Boy, The Inmate, The Fry Cook, The Subway Passenger, and The Sniper. In The Pilot, a commercial aviator sees his last flight end in a way he never could have imagined. In The Boy, a family trip is cut short, and a lonely homecoming is not at all as he anticipated. We see the surprising genesis and true identity of a traveling companion in The Inmate, while The Fry Cook reveals the final moments of a teenage fast food worker. In The Subway Passenger, we learn that in the case of zombie apocalypse, you’d probably rather be aboveground. And in The Sniper, the surprising truth that there are some fates that cannot be fought, even with a fifty caliber rifle.

Inside a reinforced bank office building, insulated from outside news for hours, the men and women inside work obliviously, unaware of the rising tide of horror. 

As society outside crumbles, the power fails. Phone lines are down. Communication is impossible, and those trapped within know nothing of the world without. 

Outside the single locked door, an incessant pounding punctuates the oppressive darkness of this modern catacomb, as the employees trapped inside struggle to understand what is happening.

But soon, they will be fighting to merely survive as they come face to face with the threat that appears from where they least expect it: within.

When he looks into their eyes, none of their thoughts are safe.

Jonathan knew that his working life as a Hollywood special effects expert was over after a devastating car crash but he was still searching for something to challenge his mind. That challenge came from an entirely unexpected direction.

Following a chance meeting on a train journey, he finds himself being drawn into the shadowy world of “Operation Checkmate”, an organization dedicated to exposing corruption and deceit in the British government. Jonathan did not realize just how useful his strange mental powers could be, but Operation Checkmate does and they will make good use of the powers that he acquired as a result of the car crash and the brain changes it caused.

Jonathan meets Sir Fergus “Mac” McKinnon, a retired MI5 officer who runs Operation Checkmate from his castle in Scotland. Soon, Jonathan is thrust into his first front line operation. Using his ability to see into the thoughts of people and induce hallucinations into their minds, he uncovers a British government conspiracy to bring terror to Britain’s railways and blame it on al-Qaeda.

But their pursuit of the bomber takes an unexpected and dangerous turn when they discover that they are not the only ones who have an interest in catching him and it soon becomes a question of just who is chasing whom. And why?
