Winter Ghost

WINTER GHOST

All I know of her is her voice, it quietly whispers through the blowing snow, which still falls. Her voice, it quietly calls for help, and cries in pain, drew me from my path and onto this chase through the snow filled streets of Mt. Airy. She always seems to be near, around the corner, behind that fence, just over that hill, but I never draw close enough to find her, never come close enough to see her.

*help*

Again I hear her voice and I twist in the piling snow, my… Continue

A Summary of first book Pure Blood- followed by an Excerpt

A great division occurred after the creation of the human species. The first division happened when Lucifer, Prince of the Morning chose to defy creation and the Celestial Hierarchy. The second occurred when the Order of the Watchers, chosen to assist the human species defied the rules and engaged with them. The Celestial Hierarchy was made up of several orders, each with different status, positions and task. One of the Orders was the Powers, the Guardians of Universal and Cosmic… Continue

Excerpt from a novel I'm currently working on, tentatively titled Visitors to NeoAfrica.

“Those ships are huge,” Von Dellums, Director of Fleet Intelligence voiced in a subdued tone. “How much do you think they mass?” He turned to look up at the very tall man standing beside him.

Robert Mensah, Chief Advisor to the President of the NeoAfrican Federation blew out a thoughtful breath. “Hmmm. I’d say they’re twice the size of a Sofa Class Assault Cruiser. How well armed they are remains to be seen.”

Both men were in a surveillance room inside the Command Complex, a military… Continue

An excerpt from my upcoming book, Twilight.

I stared out the forward drop pod window as the planet below expanded from a curvature cutting across our view to a dark, rugged blot. The nearer our descent the closer that blot revealed discernible surface features: mountains, trees, bodies of water, blast craters; swathes of land scoured black by thermal bombardment. Much of those areas encompassed space where population centers once existed.

I soaked in the grim scene, tallying the numbers of dead Vingin in my mind. Reverse thrusts… Continue

Earth Squadron Action Figure Delayed 2 Weeks.

Unfortunately, The action figure prototype which was sculpted in India is being delayed for two weeks. There was an error in shipping which will push the arrival date back 2 weeks. Lord willing, we will have some ready for the holiday season. Once this one is here we plan to make some custom figures for those that have supported the project so far.

Next month we begin development of the enemy characters and then our first female character. This project is a bit ambitious but I am… Continue

Sarah Caullings Private Journal 4

Why couldn’t it be contained? Why could we not control it? The purpose of the virus seemed so clear to me, yet the way it evolved from host to host made it so complex. We were such fools to think that we could control such an intense for of nature. I was such a fool to think that I could escape fates cruel joke. I was so selfish to allow things to get this far yet blame everyone else for my families fate.



I still remember the day the corpses were brought back from Japan. There was a… Continue

Sarah Caullings Private Journal 3

If any of my journals are being read, I imagine that I am either dead or under investigation by the United States government as well as many others. I cannot say that the leaving of these journals is any attempt to clear myself of any wrong doing in this specific incident. Rather these journals are my attempt to shed light on a matter that may very well cost the entire population of the world their lives. I am just as responsible if not more so than the virus for the deaths of so many people,… Continue

Sarah Caullings Private Journal 2

So much death. So many good innocent people now lost because of our misguided actions. This was never meant to cause such a tragedy, but it shall go down in history as the single most destructive event in the history of man. Maybe this is how Judgment Day was supposed to come. Maybe this is the will of God that we have acted out. Man against man, in a battle for supremacy; Darwin's survival of the fittest at its most extreme. No….. this is no biblical prophecy. We get no pass from the death… Continue

Day Eleven

Day Eleven (revised)



Told you I'd be back didn't I. Just in time to tell you that we have all officially lost our shit. I am not joking, playin around, or bullshitting in any way. We are all officially committable as of yesterday. How do I know this you might ask? Easy, cause I have never laughed so hard in mu friggin life. And I imagine that if you saw a couple of slow walking douches that were trying to eat your face off slipping on cooking oil you'd laugh… Continue

Day Ten

It's like all we are is flies waiting to get swatted down. The plan somewhat worked, but now we're down three more people. Will gave his life trying to help get the power back on, and April and Cujo have gone A.W.O.L on us. Things are a bit hectic right now so I'm gonna keep this short and sweet.







About two days back when the power went out on us we came up with a plan to get everything back on. We were still using the exercise bikes as back-ups while Freddie finalized his… Continue

Sarah Caullings Private Journal 1

It's finally happening and I can't stop it. I told them that this day was going to come, but they didn't listen. They've activated their total quarantine initiative but I fear that it is all too late. Though all the tests showed mixed results they went ahead with this….procedure that we shall all pay the final price for. This has cost me so much so far, that I can no longer hold it to myself; this has to get out so that someday someone may now the true story. My name is Sarah Caullings, Quality… Continue

That fucking Brian and his smart-ass ideas. Ok so the plan worked in getting the others here, but now the powers out. It was delayed a good bit, but I think that's because the shock wave from the blast shorted out a few wires in the line. There may be some shrapnel in the side of one of the boxes outside of here or something. I dunno, but whatever it has us in a world of shit right now.



This Freddie dude use to work for an electric company around here,… Continue

Day Eight

I love when thing go Boom! The plan that Brian came up with worked like a charm. We loaded the charger up with a ton of propane and aerosol cans and sent it into the abyss of walking douches out front. Cujo and Will popped a couple of rounds into her and that was it for at least a few of them. The other people that were in the rig came barreling through making speed bumps out of the anything else that was in there way and almost leveling the store as well. Mastaff, Freddie and Kizer are there… Continue

Day Seven

She's Dead. Theresa is gone. Regardless of all of the things that we did to keep this place safe, they got her and I couldn't save her. I swear I never wanted this to happen, not to any of us. I don't know how to feel not at all. I know I've said some things to her and about her that weren't great and were sometimes rude, but for it to end like this. Why?







After the video stronghold thing was set up everyone met to chill out and get there mind of things for a while. I… Continue

America after World War I

Changes in America after World War I

            World War I (WWI) is an influential occurrence that had a great impact in the social, economic and political environment of the United States of America. However, as I was writing for one essay writing serviceunderstanding these impacts also requires an analysis of the period preceding this war. Between 1905 and 1915, America relied on the debts they collected from the international capital markets.[1] Politically, the country adopted an isolationist foreign policy so as to conquer other countries such as Cuba and the Philippines. Socially, the country had good relations with Europe but it remained feared by other countries. These situations changed after the war. This paper analyses the social, political and economic situations in America after WWI showing that the war had both negative and…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
