She might not escape the mission without a few bumps and bruises either.

Burner Phone– Valerie Puri- When Jimmy signs up for the Area 51 raid as a joke, he gets more than he bargains for. As his pursuit for the truth intensified, he teams up with a like-minded inindividual. Together, they infiltrate Area 51.

She had no idea that she would find within the walls of the government’s secret facility. The media speaks of aliens and conspiracy theories , but there are no aliens at Area 51.

In their task of creating an indestructible army, their failed experiment creates something far worse that the world has ever seen.

Them versus Us– Cass Alex-  The Area 51 gate-storm party goes more awry than anyone thought, leaving a small group of survivors to try and escape the base before what’s hidden inside does.

Taking Initiative– Lori Jospeh- Poor Hannah! Almost 30, alone in the world, and about to be evicted. But that all changes when she applies for a position with the US Government. Accepting a position with the GEDI proves to be the opportunity of a lifetime; a promise of a better future, friends, and the chance to earn some real money for the first time in her life.The favorable circumstances Hannah has been handed comes with rules, unexpected processes, and a dominating authority figure. Will impulsive Hannah be able to comply and keep her lavish new life or will she be returned to her bleak existence?

LGM Duty– Katherine LE White- It’s hard being part of a platoon. When one of you screws up, all of you get punished. And sometimes, that punishment has to do with ridiculous things that happen at a desert facility before ridiculous people decide to storm the desert facility.

What We Became– Jennifer Wedmore- The Year is 2519. The integrated society of humans and aliens have been around for 500 years. This is the start of the story passed down through the ages of What We Have Become.

The Anniversary– Carrie Humphrey- Fifty years ago an idea hatched out a desire to prove the government system wrong. The results weren’t what anyone expected, and as the crew of the first interstellar space ship adjust to life among the stars, a few friends get together to remind everyone that a smile can travel the distance of time.

The Worst of the Worst– Katey Tattrie‪- Trapped underground, one mile to Central Control, injured, and possibly meeting up with the United States’ deadliest serial killers escaped from their cells. “Freaking fantastic. Not exactly your typical day at Area 51. Nick was right. I should have stayed home.”

Not Your Father’s Area 51– C.L. Roman- Getting in won’t be a problem. The real challenge will be getting out alive. It sounds simple. Get in, grab the gems, get out, free your grandparents. The ones you didn’t know were still alive. The ones who are witches of exceptional power. The ones who were imprisoned by an enemy looking for the jewels you’re about to steal. Oh, and did I mention that the stones are in a secure facility, guarded by elite military forces and advanced technology? From planning a wedding to stealing a magic crown, nothing is simple for Thomas and Dana — because this is Not Your Father’s Area 51.

Detective Heavenborn– Chrys Fey- Who is Detective Heavenborn, and what’s in the package she needs to retrieve from Area 51?

Marshall Striper chooses to rescue her from a broken down car and offer to drive her to her destination: the Area 51 Alien Center. How will he react when things start adding up to equal that she’s not human? He’s about to find the answer.

The Road to Groom Lake– Debra Parmley- A Navy SEAL and a belly dancing herbalist on the run from big pharma controlled government in 2040 arrive at the mysterious and abandoned Area 51. But someone is in there waiting for them.

The Road to Eden– Beverly Ovalle- The civilization of Jannat Adn was slowly dying. Unable to procreate they searched the galaxy looking for compatible civilizations. They find one. It’s Earth. Not only are earthlings compatible, but gene markers show a common ancestor.
Pavolok is amazed at how different life on Earth is. Tasked with safely bringing aboard colonists, the Storm Area 51 Raid is the perfect opportunity to round them up. When the US Military tests a weapon on their own citizens, he steps in to save them. What he doesn’t expect is his body’s reaction to one of the human women. Her purple hair and violet eyes draw him instantly to her.
Amy joined the raid for the heck of it, along with her siblings. Naruto running and clapping cheeks appeals to her sense of humor. It’s not that she believes in aliens, just why miss the chance if they really are there? Transported to a space ship that really doesn’t live up to her expectations, she can’t seem to keep her hands off Pavolok.
Amy hadn’t planned on having an alien in her life, but once she clapped him, she’s not willing to give him up.

About Those Brothers– C.L. Williams- Leo and Lionel are two of the few lucky ones to make it inside Area 51 and make it out ALIVE! But as they discovered with Area 51, not everything is as it seems.

About the Anthology

In July of 2019, author Terri A. Wilson contacted other authors with a simple idea. “I think it would be fun to create an Area 51 anthology and release it around the time of the big invasion. Maybe a charity anthology- all genres. Any interest?” 

 

The idea caught fire among her writers community, with writers she knew sharing the idea with writers they knew. In the end, 47 authors of all different genres agreed to try their hardest to craft a story that honored Terri’s few stipulations. 

 

  1. Stories didn’t have to include aliens, but they needed to incorporate Area 51
  2. Stories had to be professionally edited
  3. Stories had to be submitted on a tight deadline so they could be professionally assembled and formatted
  4. All proceeds from the book would go to the United States veterans foundation selected by the group. *Due to legal reasons we cannot directly name the foundation in any book marketing.

 

In the end, over twenty authors submitted stories to the anthology. 

 

“I am so blown away by the response to this antho.” Wilson said. “The energy is overwhelming.” 

 

Ebook and print versions will be available September 20, 2019 to coincide with the original date of Alienstock and Area 51 Bootcamp, the two major events planned for the Area 51 raid.

An Area 51 short story

The Road to Eden by Beverly Ovalle

The civilization of Jannat Adn was slowly dying. Unable to procreate they searched the galaxy looking for compatible civilizations. They find one. It’s Earth. Not only are earthlings compatible, but gene markers show a common ancestor.

Pavolok is amazed at how different life on Earth is. Tasked with safely bringing aboard colonists, the Storm Area 51 Raid is the perfect opportunity to round them up. When the US Military tests a weapon on their own citizens, he steps in to save them. What he doesn’t expect is his body’s reaction to one of the human women. Her purple hair and violet eyes draw him instantly to her.

Thirst Blood of my Blood ~ RP Channing

Book Title - Thirst Blood of my BloodThirst by R P Channing Cover240+ Pages
WITH BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHS

 

~ Kira Sutherland ~

 

After a near fatal accident (and getting cheated on by her ‘boyfriend’), and beating up the lead cheerleader (with whom the boyfriend cheated…), and being labeled as having ‘issues’ in her school because she, uhm, sees ghosts, Kira is left with two choices:

 

  1. Continue her ‘therapy’ (where she’s told the ghost is a hallucination and also gets her legs ogled too often…)

 

Or

 

  1. Go to Starkfield Academy, a boarding school for “Crazies and Convicts” (as the social media sites call them.)

 

She chooses the latter…

 

~ Cory Rand ~

 

Cory Rand has not had an easy life. His mother died in a car accident when he was twelve, and so did his mother’s best friend…sort of. You see, Janice made a promise to take care of Cory just before she died, and so she lingers. Undead. A ghost that watches out for him.

 

Brought up in an abusive home, Cory quickly falls into a life of disreputable behavior. After his third offense (which was prompted by a girl, as usual – he has a weakness) he’s left with two choices:

 

  1. Be tried as an adult and share a cell with a guy named Bubba (he thinks…)

 

Or

 

  1. Go to Starkfield Academy, which Cory is pretty sure is run by vampires. But, hey, at least he’ll get an education.

 

He chooses the latter…

 

It’s at Starkfield that Kira meets Cory Rand, a boy with an insatiable Rage who sees ghosts, too. As well as other things, other things from his past, things that confuse him, things like fire and witches and demons.

 

Things he’s always ignored.

 

Until now.

PROLOGUE -1-

The Puppy Eyes

My life was perfect.

I had the perfect shoes and the perfect friends and I lived in the perfect house. My nails were perfect and my hair was perfect (except on Sundays, it was always windy on Sundays) and I had the perfect clothes. My lips were a perfect red and my hair perfectly straight. My eyeshadow was perfect, my hips were…okay, and my waist…well…also okay. Nothing was wrong in my life.

But then there was Jack.

Jack was a problem.

He needed to go. I mean, when you’re dead, you’re dead! I had told him this endlessly. Somehow, Jack didn’t get it. I mean, I felt sorry for the guy. Sure. Being stuck between this life and the next. But just because I found him, does that mean I needed to keep him?

I think not!

Sadly, when Jack got that look in his eyes, that weary, almost teary (if his tearducts worked) look, I melted. I just couldn’t send him away. Not even Jack knew where he would go after he died.

Would he, like, die? As in — dead, nada, kaput, finito, gone, no more? Bye bye, sayonara, ciao, hasta la vista baby and all that? I couldn’t have that on my conscience. No way.

I lay on my bed, wondering what to do about him. “Jaaaaaaack,” I hollered.

“Jaaaaaaack!”

Still no answer.

“Jack!”

Jack…materialized.

His eyes rolled down to the ground. He was making those puppy eyes again. “Jack, I told you not to do that. I told you not to play on my sympathies.”

His puppy eyes became worse.

His skin was gray and, well, dead.

“Oh, brother,” I said. “I have to do something about you. If mom finds out I have another ‘imaginary friend’ — at my age — well, I’d die of embarrassment. But, like, really die. Not like you.” I wondered about this. Would I die? Was Jack a freak accident, or did all people live on like him? Think of the cemeteries…

The idea excited me somewhat.

“What would you have me do, Miss Kira?”

“Knock off the Miss Kira crap. I told you it’s just Kira.”

“Yes, Miss Kira.”

The dead. There’s just no reasoning.

“Fine, Miss Kira it is then.” Rover barked like a lunatic in the garden. No one else might be able to see Jack, but I was sure my dog could.

“I have to do something about this,” I mumbled.

-2- The Rat

Mike knocked on the door before I had time to leave the house. Mike was the guy I thought (at the time) was perfect.

“Who is it?”

“It’s me, baby.”

Baby, urgh — I wasn’t his baby. I dated Mike because he was the quarterback, because girls are supposed to like the quarterback, because it’s just so darn perfect to be seen with the quarterback, like we’re brainwashed into thinking these things from the first romantic doll set mom buys us.

This was my previous life.

“Mike.”

“Uh-huh. Gonna let me in?” So you can try rub me up and then complain when I don’t let you? This, dear reader, was the big problem with Mike. The second we first kissed, his hand went way too far south for me to be comfortable — and I pulled back.

Mike suddenly wasn’t so perfect.

“Uhm, I was just on my way out,” I said.

“Kira? C’mon, open the door.” He sounded upset. “Is there someone in there with you?”

Boys. As if.

I didn’t know much about love (nothing, actually) but I knew this wasn’t it. “Uhm, now’s not the time, Mike.”

“C’mon, Kira, what’s going on?” He banged harder.

When in doubt…lie. I opened the door a crack. “There’s a dead rat in the house, Mike. Been here for days. I gotta go get some detergent and stuff to handle the stench.”

Mike stepped back. He peered through the crack of the door.

“It’s really bad,” I said.

“I’ll drive you.”

“I’m afraid the smell” — I stuck my armpit to my nose — “has found its way all over me. I’ll drive myself.”

“O — okay. Fine.” And then he grinned like he wanted something. “Later? My place?”

Urgh. “Uhm, sure…er…later. Not sure when though.”

“Six.”

I fought the urge to roll my eyes. According to girls at school, he was apparently so damn good looking — theoretically. But for me personally, he did nothing. Moved nothing. Twisted nothing. “Look, I gotta go, Mike. I gotta — ”

“Kira.” His eyes grew stern. “You’ve been avoiding me…”

Bingo! Well done contestant number one! And what have you won? A brain!

I tilted my head. “Mike, look, this…rat — I need to deal with it. We’ll talk later, okay? Bye.” I closed the door, not waiting for an answer, and peered out the peep hole. Mike hung around for a second, shoulders wide and eyes glaring straight at me through the door. Could he see me? Did he know I was looking at him?

He kicked something off the ground, and I had the distinct impression he mouthed the word Bitch before leaving. But I wasn’t sure…

-3- The Mack

“Roll down the window, Jack.” Jack was recently dead, so he still had a smell about him. (Which only I could smell…)

I had purposely skipped breakfast. Maybe Jack would help me lose weight. I was (still am) a little wide, although it had never stopped guys flirting with me. I know how to dress.

But I could be skinnier.

Lucy Rogers was skinny. All bones and no boobs.

Charlene Carverton was a babe. Cheerleader. Big chest (which she pushed out generously with a push-up — if only guys knew). Toned thighs. Charlene only dated college boys (back then), which I still think is pretty gross for a girl her age.

“He’s not for you,” Jack said out the blue.

“Hmm?”

“This…Mike — he’s wrong for you, Miss Kira.” For all Jack’s faults (mainly, being dead), he has a good heart. Factually, probably it’s why I kept him around at first.

“You think I don’t know that?”

“Then why don’t you dump him?”

I braked at a stop sign. Looked left and right. “Because I’d look like an idiot. I flirted with him and showed interest, and one kiss later I can’t stand the sight of him.”

“So dump him.”

“It’s not that simple. Kids at school — they can be vicious. I have to let it fade slowly. If I drop the bomb on him, I’ll never hear the end of it through senior year.”

“And you care?”

Yes, I did.

Forget Guantanamo, schools are rough. “You don’t understand, Jack. Maybe school was different in your day. But in mine, well, we walk through metal detectors.”

“Schools weren’t too different in my day.” I noted the sadness in his voice.

“You okay?”

“I’m dead.”

Right. “You miss…your life?”

Jack shrugged. “I like being with you, Miss Kira. And I don’t remember much of my life. I think I’m in limbo.”

“Limbo?”

“Yes, like I have some unfinished business. If only I could remember…what…it is…” He scratched his head.

“Any ideas?”

“Well, it can’t be love. If it were love, I’d be a vampire. That’s who teenage girls fall in love with these days.”

“A vampire? That’s just what I need — two undead beings stalking me.”

“I feel I have something to do around you, Miss Kira. I don’t know what, but something. Something important.”

I looked over at him. “Me?”

I was still looking at him when I missed the stop sign.

Author Bio

R P Channing started writing three years ago, but never published anything even after churning out over a million words of fiction. Thirst: Blood of my Blood is the first book he dared to publish. When asked why, he said, “Because it’s the first thing I wrote that my wife actually enjoyed reading.” When not hammering away (most literally) at his keyboard, he can be found buried in a book, reading anything from romance to horror to young adult to non-fiction to comedy.
