Potential

After a series of world wars that divided the United States and left its cities abandoned, the surviving citizens live in small towns. The government provides for their basic needs and oversees the education of the children. The schools use standardized tests in the senior year to determine which job in the community each student will be assigned to, and it’s time for Gwen to take the exams.

Gwen is not thinking about the tests or what type of work she wants to do. She and her best friend Ruth are in love, and they dream of starting their lives together after exams. But Gwen is also keeping a secret from her mother and Ruth, as well as the government officials administering the tests. If the secret is discovered, it has the potential to tear apart the simple life she has always known.

Leona is one of the soldiers guarding the hallways of Gwen’s school. She seems to be everything that Ruth isn’t. Leona’s dark beauty and long wavy locks are a stark contrast to the sparkle and sunshine that come with Ruth’s short cropped blonde hair.

Or more? Gwen will journey far from home through a land left behind by war and with limited resources to find her way back to love.

Get ready for a dark, smutty, softly futuristic romance novel that reads like a film (think Spike Jonze’s Her and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). -Premiere Reader

Romance for millennials. -Premiere Reader

First Look Through the Window: A Journey of Self-Discovery

This short and simple book uncovers the universal truths about our world and answers complex questions that we so often wonder about: What makes our heart race? What makes us anxious or depressed? What brings us together and what separates us? What is love? What is the meaning of life and how to find it and embrace it? What are the means to start loving yourself and doing what you love?

Loving your life is important but first and foremost you need to know where to begin from. I invite you to join me on this journey of self-discovery that I also embarked on with the purpose of a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

If I were to use a metaphor I would say that I am a ,,seeker”. I started this quest and journey because somewhere deep inside I knew there was more to all of this and I needed to find the answers that would offer the insights and tools for a happy life. As years passed by, these answers turned out to work as a guide and as a compass pointing towards the right path.

Thank you for your support and let our first journey begin!

Stupid Humans

What if all the intelligent humans abandoned Earth… and we’re what’s left?

Samantha is a journalist who travels through the wormhole to New Atlantis and discovers that embarrassing reality when she meets the People, humanity’s more intelligent—and smugly superior—distant relatives. Unfortunately, thanks to humanity’s penchant for fighting, a Human/People conflict is brewing. She could almost forget she’s not on Earth, except the People have tails and don’t slap idiot warning labels on everything.

Plagued by anti-Human sentiment on New Atlantis and unwilling to return to Earth, Samantha moves to the Five Alpha, the space station closest to the wormhole, where Human—and People—stupidity lurks around every corner. Then the conflict worsens, causing concern for the security of the wormhole—and its closest neighbor. Naturally, politicians from both sides decide they can provide a diplomatic solution by holding peace talks on the station.

When sabotage puts both Five Alpha and her only route back to Earth in jeopardy, everyone blames Samantha—including a manipulative politician with her own agenda—forcing her to fight to uncover who is plotting to destroy the wormhole and cut off Human/People relations for good. Can she find a way to save the wormhole—and her sanity—before it’s too late?

 

The Mummy’s Curse 

Laney and two of her friends win a trip of a lifetime to see the treasures of Egypt. Their tour guide, Tarrick drives them around, showing them the famous sites, giving them a history lesson. Along the way, Tarrick talks the three friends into seeking out a hidden treasure. Laney’s friends see this as an opportunity to snatch up treasure and fame, while Laney seeks to learn more about the lost mummy. There’s only one problem — the hidden treasure comes with a mummy’s curse.

Will the mummy’s curse be too much for Laney to handle?

Though this is a book in a series, it is a standalone and does not tie in with any of the other books

Hot Rod

Jake takes his beautiful girlfriend with him to a local car show, where he finds the car of his dreams. Before he knows it, the two of them are roaring down country roads. The mixture of leather seats, her perfume, the roar of the engine, and the intoxicating power of being the one driving this steel beast has more than just the powerful motor throbbing.

In Hot Pursuit

Police Officer Jeb McKenna is out patrolling a neighborhood when he decides to park his cruiser and wait for potential speeders. Moments later, a car that he has always loved roars by. Noticing it was going well over the speed limit, he excitedly follows pursuit. He soon discovers the driver to be a sexy, mysterious woman that takes him on a wild ride, leaving him exhausted, yet satisfied, but wanting more. It will be a night that he will not soon forget. Note: This is a stand alone short story, but one steamy read.

Why We Never Repeat Jokes?

Sit-down comedy? A phenom that should never be a phenomenon. Late great comedians Robin Williams, Charlie Murphy, Joan Rivers, Greg Giraldo, Don Rickles are turning over in their graves with a thorn in their side. Take my word: Share & salvage the little wit being reserved by the only true /real comedian to have ever graced the stage. Otherwise you ought’a be ashamed of yourselves!

Make sure to follow the authors on Amazon, Facebook, and Goodreads so you’re notified when they release new content! Please like and share this list, or any of the previous ones, and help spread the word about some awesome indie books.
