America is falling, ready to join the Roman Empire as a distant memory in the annals of history. The year is 2027. Tired and desperate, the American people are deep in the middle of The Second Great Depression. The Florida coastline is in ruins from the most powerful hurricane on record; a second just like it is bearing down on the state of Texas. For the first time in history, the Middle East has united as one and amassed the most formidable army the world has seen since the Third Reich. A hidden army of terrorists is on American soil. This is the story of three men: Howard Beck, the world’s richest man, also diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome. Richard Dupree, ex-Navy SEAL turned escaped convict. Maxwell Harris, a crippled, burned out Chief of Police of a small Texas town. At first they must fight for their own survival against impossible odds. Finally, the three men must band together to save their beloved country from collapse.

Praise from Amazon readers:

Sweeping, character driven apocalypse
"... held me in its grip from start to finish, a fast paced, character driven story that explores the best and worst of humanity.... Most of all, Stephenson tells a riveting tale that starts with a bang and doesn't lose momentum."

Terrifying glimpse of what could be a reality!
.... a post-apocalyptic rollercoaster ride....The fact that it is only 15 years in the future is extremely frightening to me because this book is so realistic."

Dystopian science fiction page-turner
"...Stephenson dares to imagine the worst case scenario ..The ensuing chaos makes for great reading."

As scary as it is plausible
"Author Richard Stephenson has hit one out of the park... entertaining, intriguing and scary as hell."

ON SALE NOW AT AMAZON

#1 !!!

A very teenage OMG! to find Lust and Honor at #1 (again) on Amazon's short story bestseller list this morning. So thrilling. It's a very short short and a prequel to my novel, Legacy of the Highlands.

I've run out of time to both market my novel and write my next book and do all the little quotidian things I need to do to get by, so I've decided to stop marketing. I still want to get the book into as many people's hands as I can, so I made it free on Smashwords.

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/125214

To Trust the Wolf is a modern fantasy retelling of Little Red Riding Hood in an original setting. Sixty years after the Coven of witches defeated the demons who had enslaved mankind, the youngest member of the Red Cloaks finds herself having to defend the leader of the rebellious werewolves, Lupus Rex, as he seeks rehabilitation for his horrible war crime of devouring the Gran Mater of the Coven's grandchildren whole. As the wolf reveals his secrets to her, ancient prophecies unfold as plots and machinations are set in motion. To save the world, she must decide if she can trust the wolf.

If you are interested, you can read a little bit about my self-marketing experiences here: http://raioume.com/?p=135

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.

I am a first time author trying to promote my anonymous autobiography. I grew up with deaf parents in an abusive household before finding my own path in life, which included making a decision on whether or not to end life support on my deaf, abusive, disabled mother. As much as I hope that my story helps those who have survived abuse, I am fairly certain you will find the unique combination of events interesting (much like a car crash). The most important piece to my story is that I didn't come out of my experiences angry or abusive; I'm a pretty happy guy when it comes down to it. If this sounds at all interesting to you, I invite you to check out my preview, or even to purchase the book, at: http://www.lulu.com/shop/guido/adytu...-20298452.html Thank you for your time, and your consideration.

Just released (after much procrastination), my first novel is now available on Kindle!

Scattered Debris is about loss, grief and forgiveness in the wake of 9/11.
Almost a year has passed since the two planes crashed into the World Trade Center and Paul Barrow still lives in a cloud of memories. In the course of one weekend he is pulled from his isolation by an old friend, a new relationship and a mysterious online contact.

find it on the Amazon Kindle bookstore here: http://www.amazon.com/Scattered-Debr...d_rhf_pe_p_t_1
