   March 2017

book cover General Lee Strikes Back!

After a terrible setback at Gettysburg, General Robert E. Lee does not retreat across the Potomac and his ultimate surrender at Appomattox. Instead, he turns the tables on Union General George Meade with a vicious counterattack that sets the Union Army on its heels. While Lee sets across Pennsylvania, a crazed actor closes in on President Abraham Lincoln. Standing in his way are Major Steve Thorne, and Cassandra Baird. The time has come to strike a blow for liberty—or go down swinging!

Face Off against an Alien Menace

U.S. Army Sergeant Randy Knox is sixteen, and already a seasoned veteran in the war against the alien Creepers. Randy has convinced a Creeper base to surrender. The war may finally be coming to an end. But when the surrender effort turns into a bloody ambush, Randy must accept that the powers-that-be may not want the war to be over. Now, as his hodge-podge military unit makes a desperate stand at a remote outpost, Randy will learn just how far he will go to protect those he loves—and what it takes to save humanity from alien domination.
