Extermination Day

by William Turnage

Survivors of a deadly virus must time travel into the past and warn the world of the coming Apocalypse.

A surprise meteor shower comes cascading down from the sky one winter night. Most people think it’s beautiful. Others fear it, as civilizations have throughout recorded history. They are right to be scared. Several hours later people start to die. It begins with a simple cold. Within an hour, a horrible cough. Finally your lungs fill with fluid and you drown in your own blood – a painful, crippling death. The horrible virus spreads through the world, viciously killing everyone in its path. U.S. Congressman Jeff Madison is one of the few survivors. He and a team of scientists at the secret underground government base called Project Chronos try to figure out the truth of who is behind the attack.

But the virus is only the beginning.

What ensues is a desperate struggle against an overwhelming malevolent force bent on the total extermination of the human race. The survivor’s only hope may be to escape into the past and try to warn humanity of the impending attack in the future. But what can they do when the very air they breathe can kill them in under an hour? Time is running out, something is hunting them, and there is a traitor trying to undermine their efforts at every turn.

Can Madison and his team survive this disaster and figure out who is trying to kill them, or will humanity become just another extinct species?

A Shenandoah Christmas

by Lisa Belcastro

Andrew Roberts has picked out the perfect Christmas present—an engagement ring. His Christmas wish is to marry the woman he loves. But where has she gone?

Andrew Roberts hasn’t felt such anticipation for Christmas day since he was five years old. This year he has plans, life-changing plans. He is going to propose to Allyson Flanders, the woman of his dreams. He’d lived his first thirty years as a confirmed bachelor, contented with dating, managing the family’s fleet of ships, fishing, and sailing anywhere he wanted, whenever he wanted.

Until . . .

One date with Allyson, and Andy was hopelessly caught by the smartest, kindest, most beautiful woman he’d ever met. He had no complaints. Life with Allyson was better than anything he’d ever imagined. They spent hours of every day together, casting lines into the waters off the shore of Martha’s Vineyard, talking, laughing, and dreaming. He hadn’t spent a day without being in Allyson’s company.

Until . . .

Something happened after Thanksgiving. Something he can’t figure out. Something he can’t name. But that something has created more distance than a two-month sail from Vineyard Haven Harbor to Sri Lanka. Allyson had no time for him, barely spoke to him, and made secret plans without him.

The diamond and sapphire ring resting in the black velvet box looked lonely, but not as lonely as Andy felt. Where was she spending her time? Why didn’t she return his phone calls? Had she found someone else? Was there any hope his Christmas wish might still come true?

Arriving at The Greening, a boarding school for orphaned teens, she can finally stop running. Or can she? The Greening is not what it seems. Students are rampaging out of control and as she cares for the secret Fireseed crop, she experiences frightening physical changes.

And how is she to stop her dependence on Oblivion to find a real beauty within, using her talent as a maker of salves, when she has nightmares of Stiles without it?

When George Axiom, wealthy mogul of Vegas-by-the-Sea offers a huge cash prize for the winner of a student contest, Ruby is hopeful she might collect the prize to rescue her family and friends from what she now knows is a dangerous cult.
