Welcome To The Apocalypse



The Apocalypse Games is a state of the art virtual game designed to entertain doomsday preppers, gamers, and cosplayers. But not everyone who enters is there to play the game the way the creators intended. Some players don't belong at all and some enter the game to escape reality. Whatever the reason, over 100 people are hooked up to the mainframe computer with one goal: survive twenty-four hours of an apocalypse. Instead of game over at the end, they're plugged straight into a new game. Then another. It's clear to the players the computer has malfunctioned. What isn't clear is why. And if the computer programming has failed, how long do they have before their simulation pods fail?

It's "The Hunger Games" meets "Jumangi" in this exhilarating start to a new sci-fi survival series.

Apollo's Raven
by Linnea Tanner

Can a Curse Control Ancient Britannia?

The world is in turmoil. Celtic kings hand-picked by Rome to rule are fighting each other for power. King Amren's former queen, a powerful Druid, has cast a curse that foretells Blood Wolf and the Raven will rise and destroy him.

King Amren reveals to his daughter, Princess Catrin, the grim prophesy that his former queen pronounced at her execution for treason to him.

The gods demand the scales be balanced for the life you take. If you deny my soul's journey to the Otherworld by beheading me, I curse you to do the same as mine. I prophesize your future queen will beget a daughter who will rise as a Raven and join your son, Blood Wolf, and a mighty empire to overtake your kingdom and to execute my curse.

Catrin is trained as a warrior and discovers she is the Raven and must find a way to block the curse of the evil former queen. Torn between her forbidden love for her father's enemy—Marcellus, the great-grandson of Mark Antony—and her loyalty to her people, she must summon the magic of the Ancient Druids to alter the dark prophecy that awaits her.

Will Catrin overcome and eradicate the ancient curse? Will she be able to embrace her forbidden love with Marcellus? Will she cease the war between Blood Wolf and King Amren? Will she save Ancient Britannia?

Apollo's Raven sweeps you into an epic Celtic tale of love, magic, adventure, intrigue and betrayal in Ancient Rome and Britannia.

Night Noises
by Lisa Beere
Sam is a young child who can't sleep, distracted by the many noises of the night.
Each family member attempts to help him. Eventually, his Nan discovers the issue and sister Junie comes to the rescue with a solution that reassures Sam of how much he is safe and loved.

This story will appeal to children who have concerns about being alone in the dark and those older ones that will be sleeping "away" for the first time. While written as a picture book, this text is also accessible as an early reader.


 
Throughout the ages, messiahs have come and gone, and all have fallen. After centuries of exile, Bantaka the Godslayer is active once more. The Seer manipulates the strands of Time and Space to bring together Pankea’s only hope: the most unlikely motley of misfits and cut-throats in the land, and a godling half-breed who’s bloodline heritage holds the key to saving—or dooming—all Existence. Destined to fulfill an ancient prophecy to “pierce the heart of her ancestor,” Marian Silverblade is hailed as the current messiah of her age. But prophecies often get misinterpreted. And Lord Calahan Darkblade—Marian’s ancestor and Bantaka’s Herald—has plans of his own....

The Silverblade Prophecy is the first book in The Messiahs War Trilogy. When destinies collide in a war unlike anything before seen on Pankea, the choices made by the most unlikely of heroes may determine the outcome.


 
Just a regular day at the mall, what could possibly happen?
 
When worlds collide, as those in Diaspora by Greg Egan and The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin, a new dystopia emerges in a far-off future. Andrometre is one such world where Gliese Libra, a Librarian of considerable power, is pulled into the final war between humanity and its oppressors. Along with Albert Hollows, a human and forerunner for the Insurgency, Gliese uncovers truths of her race; truths of their planet and their biology.

Follow Gliese’s story as she battles with herself and the oppressors, to overcome her conflicts of identity and guides humanity to salvation.

Nothing is ever as it seems.
 

Her Destiny Is Change
by Beth Cohen
A new wave of feminist utopian and dystopian stories are upon us. Beth Cohen’s imaginary world stakes out all the necessary grounds for why women are driven to recreate the world they might live in, and who the women need to become in order for such worlds to exist. Her cast of bold and memorable characters include the warrior, the healer, the negotiator, the lovers, and more -- those who create new ways of living and working to make a new society as it splits from the old. There can be no going back once women have found their destiny, and their “destinies are change.”
 
I wrote “Liberating Inner Eve” as a result of my encounters with female clients from a Christian background who struggle to find a sense of personal strength, high self-worth, love, and acceptance.

“Liberating Inner Eve” offers psychological insight around the impact of commonly found interpretations of the teachings of the Old Testament (in particular the Genesis account of Adam and Eve) and New Testament (the lifetime of Jesus), on various themes relevant to women’s daily lives, such as how they experience their identity, self-acceptance, and self-worth.

Every Chapter of this book includes simple exercises, encouraging readers to take time to review their thoughts and feelings, relating to a particular topic. 

Through “Liberating Inner Eve” I long to share with others how empowering the Bible can be in helping women find self-love, self-acceptance, and personal strength.


 
As water quenches a runner’s thirst, God’s word refreshes your weary soul. Runners of all levels will be awakened to powerful parallels between running and the Christian life, equipped with scripture, encouraged to persevere, and inspired with determination. You’ll be challenged to plunge deeper in your walk with God.

Chloe, on the other hand, has been dealt a rough hand in life. As details of her heart-wrenching past emerge, she fears she might lose Gavin for good.

Together, though, they discover solace in each other’s arms. While Chloe blossoms as Gavin’s submissive under his tough but tender tutelage, she wonders if he might just be the one to break the façade of fear that surrounded her heart.

Just as emotion transforms Gavin and Chloe from reluctant strangers into unlikely but enduring lovers, heartbreak strikes their relationship again, forcing an unforeseen reversal of roles.
 
No power is greater than the one you’re willing to sacrifice.

Princess Violetta Flame lives her life according to rule, but those rules require her to pay a heavy price. Haunted by a devastating loss, she longs for freedom. When a handsome ruler takes a special interest in her, she senses greater things lie ahead, but behind the handsome façade lies a dark secret – one that can usurp her efforts and cast her back into the life she detested.

The throne was never promised to Emperor Ryore Frost, but now that he has ultimate power, his world is filled with possibilities. Citizens bow at his feet, but their fleeting adoration is no match for his obsession with the young Flame Princess. As his feelings for the staunchly independent princess grow, a new threat emerges, bent on undermining his efforts and betraying his sensibilities.

When past tragedies, malevolent behaviour, and strong wills collide, which will reign supreme?

The Last American Senate
by Greg Meyers
For those paying attention in the year 2040, right on cue, the sun turns her back on the solar system; plunging the world into the deepest solar minimum since 1640 but the ice-age conditions are the least of the catastrophic changes on the planet. Western Europe is on the brink of war with a united Middle East as the United States grows weary of being the world police. While war is deliberated in the U.S. Senate, an obscure committee discovers they are already involved, but on which side? The technological and military domination of the West is quickly becoming meaningless due to the devastating global changes brought about by the Minimum and it appears that the next world war will be fought with swords and unimaginable magic. Too late, the Senate learns who is behind the global unrest and that their enemy has had a ten year head start as they use the solar minimum in every way to their terrible advantage. The rich and realistic storytelling of Greg T Meyers will leave you cheering and perhaps fearing that the actual solar minimum we are now experiencing just might have dire consequences for us all.
