Elena Johansen April 1-30 What We Need to Survive
Dystopian, science fiction, romance
After the plague, the world became a web of silent roads stretching between empty towns.
Paul discovered he had a knack for living on the move, finding supplies and trading them with other survivors, never staying long in one place, or with one person. But he wanted to. Life would be easier with someone to watch his back.
Nina found her own way to survive in the ruined world, but the choices she made left her guarded and mistrustful. Not a woman likely to care for a handsome stranger who falls in with her group of survivors.
Attraction can be ignored, and trust has to be earned. But the days spent searching for food and shelter, and the nights spent keeping watch, don’t satisfy their truest need…
When danger is never far away, is love a luxury they can’t afford? What We Need to Survive captures the tension, fear, and hope of two people struggling to build a new way of life from the leftovers of the old, deciding what to hold on to, and what to leave behind.

John Raposa April 1-30. Children of Apis: Book One: Rebel Blood
Dystopian, science fiction, post apocalyptic
Sometimes rebellion flows in our blood, ready to be awakened.
On July 28, 2057 a cataclysmic event occurred in the United States. Careful planning enabled a tiny percentage of the population to seek refuge underground.
Twenty-seven years later the survivors continue the rebuilding process, back on the earth’s surface, in a small community located near Bellows Falls, Vermont.
After all these years, many unanswered questions remain:
What was the event?
Was it planned and could it happen again?
Are they the only survivors on earth?
Follow Cowan, Kenji, and others as they search for answers in a society controlled by a man who rules with an iron fist.
The fires of rebellion have burned in the past only to be quenched. Rebels have sought salvation beyond the Territory’s borders with only news of their demise returning.
Is history about to be repeated?
Rebel Blood is the first book in the Children of Apis series. The book’s goal is to create a unique blend of the post-apocalyptic and dystopian genres. Hopefully, readers of all ages will enjoy the fast-paced action and become attached to the small band of survivors on their journey through the Children of Apis series.
