JURASSIC DEAD 2: Z-volution, out now!

The sequel to JURASSIC DEAD, JURASSIC DEAD 2: Z-volution, by Rick Chesler and David Sakmyster,  has been released by Severed Press. #kindle link above, paperback edition coming soon.

After the discovery of a dormant zombie virus in preserved Antarctic dinosaur specimens, billionaire visionary and megalomaniac Melvin DeKirk proceeds with his plan to unleash a zombie-dinosaur army upon the world, starting with Washington D.C. The U.S. military struggles to prevent the contagion’s spread and to defend against the onslaught of prehistoric monstrosities as all-out war breaks out between the living and the dead. 

However, DeKirk has even farther-reaching plans. Modifying the virus to allow for greater control, he intends to impart upon himself all the benefits of zombie-ism—near indestructibility, immortality and immunity to attacks of other zombies, including the dinosaurs, which he can now direct at will. Nothing can stop him from eradicating civilization as we know it, except possibly returning heroes Alex Ramirez and Veronica Winters. 

The unlikely pair must rescue the one scientist who may hold the key to arresting the zombie apocalypse, a CDC expert trapped in a besieged Atlanta office. Can they secure the antidote and turn the tide before the plague reaches its full potential, or will the planet return to the dominion of its long-extinct masters and a new tide of undead humanity?

Amazon kindle UK link:*Version*=1&*entries*=0

When pirates hijack a container ship off the coast of Somalia, a sinister plan to cripple the U.S. presence in the Persian Gulf and precipitate a war is unleashed. Two North Korean nuclear warheads being smuggled to Iran are the centerpiece of an ISIS plot to distract the world's attention. If they succeed, thousands of people will die in nuclear fire and the world will be at war. 

Enter OUTCAST (Operational Undertaking To Counteract Active Stateside Threats)--six ex-operatives from six of America’s most powerful organizations. Each has been unceremoniously released by their respective former employer for alleged misdoings that leave their pride wounded but their essential skill-sets untouched. After uniting over their shared bond of dismissal from the nation’s most elite outfits, the disgruntled spooks realize that they can work together like never before to take down threats to their beloved country, a country that branded them as outcasts but needs them now more than ever. 

As a quiet investigation in South Africa suddenly goes hot, leading to a Somalian pirate base and a night-time assault on the high seas, OUTCAST is hell-bent on showing America that their way isn't the best way--it's the only way.

New Special Ops eBook Bundle featuring OUTCAST Ops: The Poseidon Initiative

I'm curating a new Special Ops Bundle for, a remarkable collection of eight terrific novels by bestselling authors and rising stars. As always, at StoryBundle, you name your own price—whatever you feel the books are worth, and a portion of the proceeds goes to charity (in this case, Mighty Writers and Girls Write Now).
The Special Ops bundle contains two books in my Templar Chronicles, an internationally best selling series about modern Templar Knights who act as a secret combat squad for the Vatican, defending mankind from supernatural threats and enemies. The books — Infernal Games and Judgment Day — go together as two parts of a whole, with Judgment Day picking up immediately after Infernal Games. Trust me, you're going to want to get them both.
The bundle also contains two origin stories for two of my favorite special ops series; Prime from Jeremy Robinson's Chess Team books and Crucible from Steve Savile's Ogmios Team series. Both are action-packed series from bestselling authors that are sure to be a big hit with thriller lovers everywhere. In addition, we've got a Dane and Bones novel, Dead Ice, from David Wood with Steve Savile and an O.U.T.C.A.S.T Ops novel, The Poseidon Initiative, from Rick Chesler.

The first isSNAFU: Heroes, a collection of four military-oriented horror stories from Jonathan Maberry, James A. Moore, Weston Ochse, and last, but not least, some guy named Nassise. The second, the piece de resistance of the entire bundle, if you will, is Mortal Threat, the latest military thriller from retired brigadier general A.J. Tata. I can't think of a better way to round out a bundle like this with a novel like that!
For StoryBundle, you decide what price you want to pay. For $3 (or more, if you feel generous), you'll get the basic bundle of four books in any ebook format—WORLDWIDE. If you pay $12 (or more, if you feel generous), you'll get the four bonus books as well.
