Holly Danger’s current assignment, gleaned from a set of foggy instructions and a handful of coin stuffed into a slot, is to pick up a street kid who’s about to terminate himself off a cliff. And, as a rule, she doesn’t turn down coin. Her job as a salvager keeps her fed and clothed above the norm, which isn’t saying much.
The norm in this city is a scrape-by existence in a post-apocalyptic world, where the rain never dies, food is always scarce, and the elite have deserted the ranks in search of something better. Picking up the urchin won’t take her much time, even if he’s located outside city limits. Her craft is fast, her weapons deadly, and her tech has been optimized as well as it can be for a climate clogged with iron dust.
But things take a big turn when she decides to keep the boy instead of hand him over. Outskirts have descended on the city and their plans don’t include playing nice. It’s a good thing her Gem is primed and ready to go. Her laser fire is almost as deadly as she is…
Amanda is a graduate of the University of Minnesota, with a BA in both Speech and Hearing Science& Child Development. She went on to get an A.A.S in Sign Language Interpreting and worked as an interpreter until her first child was born. She's the author of the high octane Jessica McClain urban fantasy series, the Sin City Collectors paranormal romance series, the Phoebe Meadows contemporary fantasy series, and the new Contemporary Futuristic HOLLY DANGER series. Look for these books in stores everywhere. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband and three kids.
Holly and her crew are on a quest to uncover the locations of the medi-pods following the clues Roman left behind, hoping to find at least one that hasn’t been destroyed before the government catches on.
The only problem is, someone already has. Strange UACs are popping up all over, and in order to take the drones out, the crew risks exposing itself.
When they do, what they find is chilling. The secret government group has a dark purpose. Holly and her friends have no choice but to launch an all-out war to set things to rights. But some factors have already been set in motion, and undoing them might take too much time and come at too high a cost.
The hunt is on…
Holly won’t rest until the outskirt is found. The militia who kidnapped him believe they have the upper hand, but they know nothing about what Holly carries in her pocket. With the status reader, Case is as good as found.
But once she arrives, things get dangerous fast. Tillman and his crew are expecting her. There’s nothing left to do but break through the walls before it’s too late. But what Holly finds is beyond shattering.
Once they arrive South, it’s a race to save the outskirt’s life. The scientists have some tricks up their sleeves, but time might run out before danger descends. When it does, they barely have time to make it out alive.
Jessica Monroe's time is running out. A survivalist group is intent on eradicating Jace and all others of his kind, and it's up to her to rescue him from the stronghold of the Immune. With the survivors developing a weapon that could quite easily tip the scales in the war between human and djinn, Jessica is determined to save the man she loves -- even if means betraying what's left of humanity.
Would you sacrifice it all for the man you love?
When a group of rogue djinn attacks Taos, Jessica Monroe has no choice but to activate the device that was created to rid the elementals of their supernatural powers, even though the machine's very existence threatens to ruin the lives of her lover and friends. It's up to Jessica to launch a desperate mission to retrieve the one person who can help: Miles Odekirk, the mastermind who created the device.
The threat of retaliation by the Los Alamos survivors is not the only danger Jessica must face. Enemies lurk around every corner, and when an ancient rival returns to carry out his own revenge, Jessica may have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the man she loves, as well as the entire Taos community, human and djinn alike.

This year's show puts convicted felons in a race with genetically engineered monstrous creations. Murderers, rapists, terrorists, and thieves--they all will take their place at the starting line, and the most notorious among them is Jenna Duvall, the college student who shot a Senator.
Jenna swears she's innocent, and as she runs for her life in the Tetradome, a small-town journalist uncovers a shocking counter-narrative that suggests there is more to Jenna's story than anyone knows.
A mashup of dystopian thriller and riveting psychological suspense, The Tetradome Run is a novel that doesn't need to look far into the future to find a world gone wrong. Instead, it looks at America right here, right now, and dares the reader to ask a provocative question: What if we already live in dystopia?
One hand of cards and it's all over but the crying...
Cass Kennedy finally gets what she's been dreaming of for the past ten years: a drifter ship to call her own. All the sim time and battle training is going to pay off in spades as she sets her course for the future. She'll be living on her own terms, not those of her father.
But drifting through deep space with a crew of nutty strangers on the DS Anarchy carries a lot more surprises than she bargained for. Nobody told her that her ship is falling apart, that dead chickens are something you really want to hang on to, and that the OSG has big plans for the universe that don't necessarily jibe with her plans for herself.
Jump onboard with Cass and her crew as she charts a course toward an alliance that will either make her or break her as Captain of the DS Anarchy.

HERE'S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT DRIFTERS' ALLIANCE, BOOK 1:
“I couldn't put it down! The feel of the story reminded me of FIREFLY! So for you sci fi geeks like me I would say this book is SHINEY! for everyone else its a great story and I enjoyed it a lot. I highly recommend buying it, you won’t be sorry.” ~ Deanna, Amazon reviewer
“Page turner… Just like with other books by Elle Casey once I picked this book up I couldn't put it down and before I knew it I was done… I can't wait to see what happens next. In fact I have already pre-ordered book 2. Happy reading.” ~ Jana La Pelle, Goodreads reviewer
“Drifters’ Alliance is very different than Elle Casey's other work, but it is still just as amazing! Elle has a talent for making the characters come alive... I can't wait for the next book in this series. If you have never read sci-fi or space operas before this is the one to start with!” ~ Ken Kennedy, Goodreads reviewer
“Hooked! Absolutely, positively LOVED it! Devoured it in a few hours and now I'm craving more. As usual, with Elle's strong writing and blend of humor packed into a butt-kicking female heroine, you're going to get a great story. Also typical of her writing, it will be easy to get lost in this world.” ~ Laura Shipp, Amazon reviewer
“Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—Washington Post
According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
