Editor’s Note: INTO THE VAMPIRE CITY follows Selah Brown as she looks for her missing father in the walled-off vampire city of Miami.
The story is truly entertaining, suspenseful, and well written.
Book Description: When Selah Brown’s father disappears while investigating the new designer drug Blood Dust, she realizes that the only clues as to his whereabouts lie within Miami, the terrifying and controversial walled-off city of vampires. It’s the year 2024, and seven years have passed since the War ended and the vampires were given a city of their own to rule. The world watches, fascinated, and people begin to wonder: is coexistence possible? Yet, as Selah’s inquiries lead her deeper into the rotten heart of Miami, she begins questioning everything she thought she knew about the vampire city. About the vampires’ intentions. About herself. For there is more at stake than Selah can possibly imagine – and the secrets she uncovers are so terrible they might start the Vampire War anew.

Phil Tucker is the author of several works of urban fantasy, horror, and dystopian fiction. He lives in Western Massachusetts with his wife and dog Simon, and dreams of writing books as meaningful and moving as the ones that inspired him to begin writing in the first place.
Editor’s Note: DOG ALIENS 1: RAFFLE’S NAME is a silly far- fetched science fiction read for dog lovers of all ages.
The story is just plain FUN for everyone!
Book Description: This dog is an alien from outer space who has mind control abilities … and communicates telepathically with his home planet. This book is about how dogs want to be alone for awhile each day so they can engage in intergalactic trade, and how the big dogs and the little dogs are from rival planets and they compete here on Earth for a resource that we humans don’t use.
Author’s Inspiration: How our real-life dog Raffle got his name, but in a tall tale way. He is the most obedient dog I ever met, and I wrote this story as a fanciful explanation of why he is so obedient, and so smart.

I’ve always imagined I could hear my pets conversing with each other, especially what the cat would be saying to the dogs. She is in this story, too. She knows the dogs are aliens, and she is trying to tell us humans, but we are just too dense to get it!
Editor’s Note: ALLIE’S WAR is a gritty, intense romance with an epic plot that takes place in an unusual world.
Book Description: This is the Introduction to the Allie’s War series and to the heroine, Allie, who lives in a version of modern Earth that is populated by a second race of beings called seers, discovered in Asia in the early 1900s and more or less enslaved by humans in the time sense. Allie grew up human and believes herself to be human, until a mysterious seer named Revik appears in her life and tells her she’s not only a seer, but that she’s prophesied by seers to bring an end to the current reign of humans over Earth.
Readers who love authors Jacqueline Carey, Dannika Dark, HM Ward, or Karpov Kinrade will love this book.
Author’s Inspiration: I actually dreamed about these characters for years, especially Revik…it just took me awhile to figure out how to get their story down right, and to work out the details of their world. Trying to capture their world and the specific characters is actually one of the major motivations I had to learn how to write novels in the first place.

I’m JC Andrijeski and I’m a writer of words and a dreamer of dreams, with a (perhaps overly?) friendly appreciation for my own dark side, at least when it comes to fiction writing. That being said, if you read my stuff, you’ll discover pretty quick that, at base and in my heart, I’m a big, sappy, pie in the sky idealist, and always want the light to win, love to win, the good guys to win, compassion to win, the bad guys to be redeemed or at least to find love…even if they have to crawl through mud and blood and crazy sex and betrayal and broken fingernails to get there… I primarily write new adult urban fantasy, dystopian and paranormal romance, although I also write crime fiction and some other genres, too.
Editor’s Note: PATRIOTIC DUTY is a hot military romance with an ending that will leave a smile on your face and a sigh on your lips.

C.J. Pinard has a weakness for sweet red wine and men in uniform. She also loves the supernatural, but is usually good at separating reality from fantasy. Her romance books are highly-charged, hot, and sexy, and her paranormal books are full of fantasy and fun. Rarely does she cross the two. She became an author after too many stories were bouncing around in her head, begging to be let out. And she still hasn’t unleashed them all.
Editor’s Note: In SOVEREIGN: Escape is not possible. Survival is not likely. Citizen 1206 will fight anyway.
You’ll fall in love with the characters!
Book Description: Cori (aka 1206) is a 17-year-old bent on escaping her colony twenty years after the world went up in flames and few survived. Chemical fallout turned people into savages and the colony’s leaders into ruthless dictators. Now, all Cori wants is her freedom but the unknown outside the colony’s fences is a lot to risk and what’s out there might not be just what she thought. Friendship, loyalty, and budding romance make leaving without looking back nearly impossible.
Author’s Inspiration: It started with a dream of the opening sequence. It resonated with me long after I awoke and I had to write it. I originally tried to pass it off as a short story, but there seemed to be so much potential. I then developed the world around the character from that short story which became a large portion of the first chapter of the book. I had been on a dystopian reading bing prior to having the dream so I’m sure that contributed to the inspiration as well.

I love books! And movies…. and MUSIC… and my baby boy and awesome husband! I’m a bit of a tomboy and it shows in my work because my heroine is one tough cookie. She’s flawed and jaded and I’m so proud of her. I became an author after many, many years of writing many other things. A few years back my passion for reading was ignited and it was a natural progression for me to begin writing books, and I’m so glad I made this journey into prose.
Editor’s Note: A.I. APOCALYPSE is a tense scifi thriller about the growing threat of artificial intelligence.
Book Description: In 2025, Leon Tsarev is forced by the Russian Mafia to build a new computer virus for the mob’s botnet. The virus he creates, based on biological principles, infects all the world’s computers from phones and PCs to cars and payment systems.

Leon and his companions must race against time and the military to find a way to befriend or defeat The Phage and restore the world’s computer infrastructure.
Author’s Inspiration: I wanted to fill a gap in science fiction about realistic ways that AI might emerge and explore all the wonderful complexity of what it means to share our planet with a new intelligent life form.

Editor’s Note: THE TUBE RIDERS is a unique dystopian thrill ride through a chaotic future Britain.
Book Description: In London 2075, the city is enclosed by towering walls and ruled over by a cruel and mysterious dictator. With no families and no future, a group of young people led by Marta Banks hide in abandoned underground stations, playing a dangerous game with trains. Then one day, after a run in with a rival gang, they witness a government assassination, that if found out could bring war with Europe. Suddenly they are running for their lives with government killing machines on their tail.
Author’s Inspiration: I don’t like following trends so I wanted to write something unique. Hence the dystopia with trains.
I first won a prize for writing in school at 10 years old (I still have a dog-eared copy of the Black Beauty movie tie-in book that I won in the attic somewhere) and have been writing ever since. I started getting published in magazines in the mid 2000s, with a high point of getting in Weird Tales (original publisher of the Conan the Barbarian stories in the 1920s) issue 352 in 2008. In 2012 I published my first novel, The Tube Riders, and since then have published four others, including the two sequels and two other stand alones, Head of Words and The Man Who Built the World, as well as dozens of short stories. I refuse to stop genre-hopping because writing to me is art as well as an income, but the Tube Riders series is currently in the process of being expanded, with a prequel series and a mid-series serial both in production.
