Live Safe Haven Event- ALL Survivors Welcome!

Hi! (Waving at you.)

It's great that you came. I'll have Kyle add another tent to the Qz. He's on Point today.

So what's all the fuss? Why are you here?

Safe Haven. Online and interactive. The entire camp, including the people, free and at the world's fingertips anytime they want to stop by. Let me explain:

I'm building an interactive version of Safe Haven. From the Qz, to the guards and areas. I have a small chunk online now and have invited you here to get your approval before I go any further.

What does that mean?

I'd like you to check it out and then vote. If more people think it's too cartoonish for the gravity of the story or that it's an insult, I'll tear it down and just stick to writing.

I love the idea of having the actual camp online, of having the readers in it, finding the deleted scenes or the character details that didn't make it into the book. It's another way to make this story live forever as far as I'm concerned.

You'll find a lot of things that are not available in Demo mode, like the supply trucks, which btw, are the only place in Safe Haven where you'll see any ads or items for sale. This site is not about getting you to buy my work. I have Amazon for that. The links that are live will give you an idea of how things will work and I plan to make it as interactive as my budget will allow. 

When it goes live with the release of book four, you'll be able to join the camp, add your DoppleMe avatar, put your own graffiti on bathroom walls, and even be assigned a job based on the information you provide. There will also be secret areas you can earn a pass into and forums so you can talk with your fellow camp members. I suspect that Ft. Haven will be in there somewhere as well, along with a form of Eagle training and tryouts.

I have a lot of ideas for this site and it will all be free and optional. No fees or upgrades, just Safe Haven refugee camp brought to life in another form by those who've become attached to the story and it's people.

So that's it? Check it out and come back here to vote? No new books to be had? Where's the deleted scenes and freebie?

If you'll look to your left, you'll see my newest titles are now available for pre-order. To your right, a free, PDF(Only) copy of The Bachelor Battles. The cut pages are in the demo for you to find.

I'll be live on here until midnight, Ohio time, so feel free to vote and leave a comment or question. I've got my chair outside the flap, my strong coffee at hand, and the Eagles are on guard. For the next five hours, Safe Haven and I are all yours.


The Survivors recently went to #2 on Amazon's bestseller list for a fantasy series and that's all because of you. For the first time ever, I'm finally able to give my family a better life and I need you to know how much that means to someone with my background. My kids are happier, healthier, and I look at the world in a more forgiving way every time I think about all the wonderful people who purchased a copy of this book and made that possible. I'll never get tired of your comments or emails. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You.

The Quest

They came from the west
seven fighters to the end
One stunning blond warrior
leading six hard-ass men

Through magic and death
demons and fire
clever ambushes
and Nature's ire

Stand in their way
nothing will
bone dust or bullets
to pay the bill

To find Safe Haven
They'd scale any wall
And for their leader
They'll give their all

Through now decayed cities
filled with the stuff of nightmares
following a path
forgotten over the years

Looking for a place of change
of safety and light
striving for honor
and American might

Wrapped in the future
the year is 2017
If they'll find what they look for
remains to be seen

Alexa's Travel's
Apocalyptic fiction
An impossible quest
and a haunting new vision

Adrian's Eagles-Female Fury-NEW-(Cautions:LV)

"The hard way or the easy way?"
Angela paled, but didn't hesitate. "Hard. I want to be able to kick his ass anytime I feel like it."
Adrian didn't doubt who she was talking about. All of this mess was Kenn’s fault. Steeling his heart, he stepped back, eyes unreadable. "I challenge you."
Angela immediately swung a roundhouse, sure he wasn't ready for it, and the blond staggered back at the blow… then returned the favor.
It was only a light sting on her cheek, but shocked sounds echoed from the dim cracks around them. Adrian had hit a woman!
Angela wasn't shocked; she knew what she'd asked for, and she leaned into her next swing, telling him she could take more.
Adrian let her hit land and then delivered another slap, this one a bit harder.
She swayed, caught her balance, fired back.
Angela's hits became steadily harder, and each slap he delivered was received with a pinched up face and a healing heart. Before the War, she would have been on the ground already, begging not to be hit again.
Adrian's blow knocked her down and Angela felt her rage spring to life as she picked herself up, blood dripping from her lip. How many times had Kenny done that to her? A hundred? A thousand? And she'd had to sit back and take it.
Her grin was ice as she moved toward him. Not anymore. Now, she got to fight back! Her hit was full of fury, solid and well delivered, and Adrian staggered back again.
Blood dripped from his nose, but his thoughts were still calm, safe.
"Again, and mean it this time, Bitch!" he snarled, making his voice sound almost identical to Kenn's and she did just that, using the new skills she'd learned from Neil. Blood sprayed at the hit, rocking his head back.
Three of the stunned men watching through the cracks in the bales moved closer to the doorway as the tension grew thicker and the hits harder, not sure who to protect.
The insult had Angela swinging again, Adrian grunting at the impact. Neil had done his job.
"Never get away! Mine!"
Angela's fury was firmly in control and even though Adrian was no longer hitting back, she couldn't stop, shiny tears of rage rolling down her red cheeks with every swing.
"Hate you! Fuck you! Pig!"
Adrian stayed as still as he could and felt bitterness grow heavy in his heart for the Marine. Such a piece of shit Kenn had been.
Angela stopped swinging, shoulder on fire. She rested her hands on her knees, getting her wind back.
Adrian wiped his sleeve over his bloody face, waiting, not sure if it had been enough.
"I'm not... either," Angela panted.
He looked casually at his wrist. "Another five?"
She moved toward him with fire burning in her depths.
