One medical miracle later, followed by a car accident that should have been fatal, and dying doesn’t seem to be in the cards. Michael’s learning something shocking about the universe, and the government wants in. Michael must contend not only with living forever but also with stopping his family from tearing itself apart.

Taking Stock new eBook cover

 

Sheldon Mason wants to be a writer, but ever since his mother was run down by a drunk driver he can’t break through the darkness clogging his mind. A grocery store hires him, and at first a new co-worker seems like a source of hope. Gilbert is well-liked and willing to take Sheldon under his wing. But soon, Sheldon learns there’s a darkness in Gilbert too. As he’s drawn deeper into Gilbert’s drug-fueled schemes, his depression returns worse than before, threatening to undo all the progress he’s made.

Cover 8.5 x 5.5
The King enjoys being King. He enjoys executing anyone who annoys him, and he enjoys inventing creative ways to avoid his royal duties. But the King yearns for love. Sadly, women find him repulsive, for the very things he enjoys doing most. Soon, the King’s misguided quest for love comes to threaten his very position on the throne. If he can’t change his ways, he won’t just be alone – he will be usurped, and his monarchy will be replaced by something far more wretched, like (shudder) democracy.
