**LIMITED-TIME LAUNCH PRICE**
I wasn’t supposed to survive.
The station has been hit. Everyone around me is dead.
I have 11 hours of life support left and no way of contacting Earth.
I’m alone. I’m stranded. I’m desperate.
But I’m alive.
The more of the station I explore, the surer I get that this was no accident. Someone did this, and I don’t think they’re finished yet.
Making it home feels like an impossible task, but I’m not just fighting for my own life.
I have to protect my family — whatever it takes.
And as long as I’m breathing, this isn’t over.
Because whoever did this almost pulled it off… but they made one big mistake:
They left the wrong man standing…

The Heinous Crimes of Sara Slick is now completed and YOU can get it all in one giant boxed set now!
I was innocent, and they called me a monster.
Maybe a monster is exactly what the earth needs.
Escape the Deep:
My name is Sara Slick, and I was an average teenager. I worked hard. Followed the rules. Took care of my family. But normal dissolved the night that the hidden world of The Far showed up to accuse my dad of heinous crimes against the magical community.
To protect the ones I loved, I took the blame and the sentence of ten lifetimes in The Deep.
No human had ever been sent to this paranormal prison.
They didn’t think I’d last the night.
They couldn’t have been more wrong.
I survived by becoming the kind of human the magical world feared. Now, a decade later, I need to escape from hell before the home I sacrificed everything for meets its end at the hands of a maniacal, master wizard and his army of fanatics.
What’s one army against the heinous Sara Slick?
Kill The Wild:
A dead body. A strange cult. A terrified people.
Sounds like the perfect place for the Heinous Sara Slick.
OK, so I escaped from magical prison, saved my home town, made some friends, and managed not to die in the process. Not too bad for the Heinous Sara Slick.
But now what?
Hobbes, mastermind of all things evil, has gone into hiding, and all my leads have dried up. With the Philosopher’s Guild hot on my tail, the smart choice would be to lay low, bide my time, and take things easy.
Or, I could investigate a brutal murder deep in the woods of rural Apalachia.
Dead bodies keep turning up outside a small secluded community. And these bodies look weird. Like, giving-off-major-Farsider-vibes weird.
So, of course Ally and I are going to investigate. Who doesn’t love a road trip? The trick is solving these murders before getting my friend killed in the process. I can deal with Farsiders, but sometimes there are worse things than monsters living in the wild.
Fight The Peace:
International intrigue. Deadly assassins. Tacos!
Just an average day for the Heinous Sara Slick.
When a daring rescue uncovers new intel into the Harbingers’ next plan, we do what we do best: rush in fists raised to stop the bad guys.
But this is no backyard brawl. A coalition of world leaders have assembled to sign a peace treaty, and Hobbes has marked them as his next target. The fate of the world is at stake, and I’m the only one who can save it.
As long as I can get past the TSA.
You know what they say, to make an omelette, you need to break a few eggs.
And to save the world, sometimes you need to fight the peace.
Invade The Heights:
The end of the world is near.
There’s danger upon us.
And only the Heinous Sara Slick can stop it.
This is it, the moment I’ve been dreading since I escaped the Deep. Hobbes has unleashed his war upon the world, and the world wasn’t ready.
Angry Farsiders are attacking without mercy, Rand and the Philosopher’s Guild are out for blood, and the Near is in flames.
The good news is I have a new ally.
The bad news is, it is one of my many sworn enemies.
But beggars can’t be choosers, and I’ll need all the help I can get if I’m going to pull off my most dangerous mission yet.
I have to Invade the Heights.
Unfortunately, invading the heights will be the easiest thing I do today.

“A slice of yummy cake. Quickly devoured and highly enjoyed.”
2018 NEBULA AWARD FINALIST: BEST NOVELLA
Floribeth Salinas O’Shea Dalisay is an Off-Planet Worker, employed as an exploration pilot by the giant corporation, Hamdani Brothers. Sent on a routine mission to analyze one of the millions of systems in the galaxy, she stumbles across something that could threaten humanity’s very existence. She barely escapes with her life, but in the process, has to shut down her scout’s AI.
As with all OPWs, she has few rights, and instead of being lauded as a hero, the corporation thinks she is lying. Her managers believe she found something valuable and shut down her AI in an attempt to hide that fact, hoping she can sell that information to the highest bidder. Grounded, and with a huge debt now over her head, Beth has to convince the powers that be that a very real danger to humanity is lying in wait out there in deep space.
War with the aliens has broken out, and they seem to have all the advantages. Engineers and scientists are scrambling to develop weapons to stand up to the threat, but when all is said and done, it is the Navy fighter pilots who have to take the fight to the enemy.
Petty Officer Third Class Floribeth Salinas O’Shea Dalisay, one of the new enlisted fighter pilots, is on the front lines with VFX-99, the “Stingers.” Sent out as guinea pigs, they collect needed data on the enemy weapons systems by being targets. But even guinea pigs have teeth, and if she can survive, Beth is determined to use hers.
I’ve been carrying a torch for a wolf defender, but he’s never looked my way. Why would he? I am a dragon and the daughter of an accused traitor.
When we get news of mystery and intrigue in the corrupt Timber Kingdom of the wolves, he wants to go there to avenge the death of his fated mate. I’m sure this is the key to proving my dad’s innocence.
If I can convince him to band together we both might get what we want, including a chance at love. But neither of us know who to trust when demons and wolves have joined forces to bring the dark Unseelie to our realm.

If they’re coming for us, who’s coming for them?
The galaxy is vast, and not everything is what it seems. The invasion we always feared is here.
Which begs the question: what do the invaders fear? If not us, then what…or who
And what happens to the would-be peacemakers when they find themselves in the middle of something else? Something dangerous, something highly advanced, and … something familiar?
If humanity is wise, we will prepare for everything we can imagine.
But we cannot prepare for what we cannot imagine.
It might be benign, it might be malign, or it might be a sign.
You just have to know where to look.
