Rules for Revolutionaries

**Lessons from the groundbreaking grassroots campaign that helped launch a new political revolution**
*Rules for Revolutionaries* is a bold challenge to the political establishment and the “rules” that govern campaign strategy.
It tells the story of a breakthrough experiment conducted on the fringes of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign: A technology-driven team empowered volunteers to build and manage the infrastructure to make seventy-five million calls, launch eight million text messages, and hold more than one-hundred thousand public meetings—in an effort to put Bernie Sanders’s insurgent campaign over the top.
Bond and Exley, digital iconoclasts who have been reshaping the way politics is practiced in America for two decades, have identified twenty-two rules of “Big Organizing” that can be used to drive social change movements of any kind. And they tell the inside story of one of the most amazing grassroots political campaigns ever run.
Fast-paced, provocative, and profound, *Rules for Revolutionaries* stands as a liberating challenge to the low expectations and small thinking that dominates too many advocacy, non-profit, and campaigning organizations—and points the way forward to a future where political revolution is truly possible.

Rod Wars

No one wants to lead a boring life.
Alex Mulholland on the other hand is an exception. Born sucking on a sliver spoon, throughout his life he’s attended nothing but private schools, spent his summers in other countries and received a motorcycle on his sixteenth birthday. With only one year to spare before he inherits his grandmother’s fortune on his eighteenth birthday he gets into an accident. Dropped into a different world he receives the hospitality of Kaiga one of the largest country’s in the region which is on brink of war with Victashia an opposing superpower.
Determined to return home and collect a lost inheritance Alex enrolls into Corpus Academy an institution dedicated to magus prodigies. There he encounters Melissa Bellheart; beautiful and blonde haired with an ego to match she is hailed as the goddess of Kaiga…in her mind alone. An eleven, the rarest of all magus Melissa is perceived as a government tool, thought of as a weapon and a threat by Victashia, her country’s enemy across the sea.
Her very existence keeps the Viate Order—Victashia’s elite soldiers—at bay but with Alex’s appearance the pendulum could swing, the scales could tip and the brittle peace between the two nations could all but fall away as their unspoken treaty goes up with the flames of war. And when a rod—an ancient weapon with extraordinary power slips into the academy, an interruption could prove inevitable.

Revenger

The galaxy has seen great empires rise and fall. Planets have shattered and been remade. Amongst the ruins of alien civilisations, building our own from the rubble, humanity still thrives.
And there are vast fortunes to be made, if you know where to find them . . .
Captain Rackamore and his crew do. It’s their business to find the tiny, enigmatic worlds which have been hidden away, booby-trapped, surrounded with layers of protection – and to crack them open for the ancient relics and barely-remembered technologies inside. But while they ply their risky trade with integrity, not everyone is so scrupulous.
Adrana and Fura Ness are the newest members of Rackamore’s crew, signed on to save their family from bankruptcy. Only Rackamore has enemies, and there might be more waiting for them in space than adventure and fortune: the fabled and feared Bosa Sennen in particular.
Revenger is a science fiction adventure story set in the rubble of our solar system in the dark, distant future – a tale of space pirates, buried treasure and phantom weapons, of unspeakable hazards and single-minded heroism . . . and of vengeance . . .

Forced into a conflict with an unknowable enemy, he awakes to find himself in a strange land, and is soon joined by young woman, Morana, who tends to his wounds and tells him of the battles played out in this impossible place.
She tells him of an Iron Beast that will end the Great War, and even as he vows to help her find it, enemy combatants seek them, intent on their utter annihilation.

Return

The outside world was different than they remembered. Impersonal. Harsh. But that world was the same. It was the survivors who had changed.
When the Treaty between the United States and Russia offered the opportunity for Chuck, Madison and the others to return to Alaska, they seized it, this time leaving modern conveniences behind by choice.
Chuck and the Community have the same mission they’ve always had: to live life to the fullest in a new world of their own making. But that means they must confront the Russian invaders yet again as the enemy tries to establish its own settlement, and the Nagys’ world turns upside down once more – maybe for the final time.
Fans of military fiction like William Johnstone’s Ashes Series and John Gilstrap’s At All Costs will love the power, suspense, and deep family commitment of the End Times: Alaska trilogy.
Cheer for the Community as they try to build a new society on the ashes of the old world … a harsh post-war world where danger and trials stalk them at every turn. **

Retribution

“You’re a hero every fucking day,Tate,” I said softly. “Don’t ever forget that.” –Hawke
Ex Special Forces soldier Michael “Hawke” Hawkins has spent every day of the last ten years waiting for the moment he would get to watch the life fade from the eyes of the men who brutally murdered his wife, but when he finally gets the break he’s been waiting for, the trail leads him to someone he wasn’t expecting.
After nearly two years of running, 24-year-old Tate Travers has become an expert at hiding…until the day a dangerous stranger shows up looking for vengeance and threatens to destroy the fragile life Tate has managed to build for himself and his five-year-old son. Except the life Tate has been struggling to hold on to started unraveling long before Hawke showed up looking for the same men Tate has been running from…his own father and older brother.
Retribution – it’s all Hawke has wanted since the day he held his wife’s hand as she took her last breath. And he won’t give that up for anything or anyone…not even the tormented young man trying to give his little boy a better life. Because Tate is the only one who can lead Hawke to the men he’s been searching for. And if it means forcing the young man to confront the past that nearly destroyed him, then so be it.
Only the last thing Hawke expects to feel is something besides the hatred that has driven him. And he definitely never expected to feel it for a man.
But when it comes down to choosing between the unwanted feelings Tate stirs in him and the revenge he’s finally close enough to taste, will Hawke be able to give up the one thing that has kept him going for a second chance at a future he gave up on ever having?

The Protectors series crosses over with some of my other series, so for the most enjoyment, they should be read in order, but it is not required. You can find the correct reading order at the beginning of each book. I’ve also bundled all my series in the correct reading order under the title of A Family Chosen: The Protectors and Barrettis. **

Renegades

[ *Alternate cover edition for ASIN: B01JDD6PK8* ]
Fleet Captain Sarah Dayson fought the Hive in Book 1. She fought the telepathic adepts in Book 2. Now in book 3 she fights her most insidious enemy yet. Take a look inside for an adventure in betrayal, space combat, discovery of the human potential, and the meaning of loyalty and friendship. The characters you know from the first two books return for more drama, more conflict, more building of the universe in this series.
Sarah Dayson planned on uniting her people and the adepts after the death of the tyrant Merik in book 2. A great assembly is called, but she must abandon it at a critical moment to deal with insurrection among her own people. Will she succeed? Will she lose the hearts of the adepts she fought so hard to bring to her cause? Struggling to find peace for her crewmen, Sarah must juggle the politics of a world struggling for identity, a world trying to reach equilibrium between two species of humanity. Not everyone, however, shares her agenda. Some have their own plans.
As the author I highly recommend you read the Dark Seas series in order. This book builds on concepts and events of the first two books, and is written in such a way that if you start with this book you may not understand all the references. Intended to be an epic tale, Sarah Dayson’s life is chronicled for you volume by volume. Dive in. Enjoy. Email me. My address is in the back of all three books, I love to hear from my readers.

Red Knight Falling

Fresh from their victory over the Bogeyman, FBI agent Harmony Black and her team, Vigilant Lock, face a new type of threat: one from beyond the stars.
They’d always heard the Red Knight was an urban legend: in 1954, three years before Sputnik launched, a mysterious satellite was sighted circling Earth, though no power on the planet had such technology.
But the Red Knight is real, and what’s more, it’s inextricably linked to a supernatural force no one yet understands. Like a moth to a flame, this dark presence collides annually with the airborne satellite. Except this year the Red Knight is on course to crash-land…in Oregon.
Vigilant Lock sets out to find the crash site and secure the remnants before the mysterious power is drawn to Earth. But they soon discover the mission is far from straightforward—and they aren’t the only ones tracking the Red Knight. To stop a deadly occult threat, Harmony and her team must use all their resources: technology and sorcery, science and magic. Fortunately, Harmony has only begun to discover her growing power.
