A violent attack on a remote human colony. A corrupt colonial official. And a lone special operations advisor sent to uncover the truth and ultimately save the colony.
Chief Warrant Officer Rave Dekko, Space Force Reconnaissance Commando (Recondo), might be just the kind of warrior monk you want to see dropping out of orbit when things on-planet are getting out of hand. But what if the problem is of your own doing? Rave lands on a remote colony planet on orders to investigate an attack on the colony by indigenous creatures called skwatch. Believing the attack to be an isolated event, Rave soon discovers that human-skwatch interactions are more pervasive—and sinister—than he was led to believe.
Now he has two problems: prepare the colony for defense against the indigenous creatures, and navigate the political landscape where corrupt officials and unscrupulous colonists take advantage of every resource available. Ultimately, Rave and his rascally rule-bending AI starship have to sort out all the issues before the skwatch decide to attack again.

A battle with cancer. A struggle to weave a meaningful tapestry out of the threads of life. And a woman fighting simply to see the sun come up over the ocean one last time.
Josephine Kerner, a retired school teacher and widow, lies dying in a hospital on the Atlantic coast of Florida. Between visits from her surly nurse, estranged daughter, innocent granddaughter, and long-dead husband, Eddie, Jo explores the meaning of her life, the impact she may have made, and how she thinks she will be remembered.

Is today’s sunrise the last—or will there be a chance to see just one more?
THE SEA AT SUNRISE is a poignant look at how we cope with dying and the legacy we leave behind. If you like a story steeped in philosophy, joie de vivre, and hope, then you will love Teague de La Plaine’s heartfelt and poetic farewell story of love, life, and loss.

When a mysterious group recruits him to help locate a portal leading to the Underworld, Jack is thrown from his lackluster job into a dark magic conflict no amount of military training could have prepared him for.
