Storming Area 51 ~ We know the TRUTH, Do you?


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. 


Book Blurb:
What’s in Area 51? Is the government hiding aliens? Elvis? Maybe the set of the Apollo moon landing? Do you know? We do. Join this multi-genre group as they explore the hidden recesses of Area 51 which up until now have only been whispered conspiracies. Don’t bother with the raid. Stay home, read these awesome stories and learn all you need to know. The truth is just a page-flip away.

The Road to Eden

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.

Meet me in South Dakota


I'm heading to Deadwood SD this week. We're getting the motor home ready to roll. We (meaning hubby) cleaned the the windows, changed the windshield wiper blades and added washer fluid.

Last week I took it in and had the air conditioning checked, the oil changed, an overall engine check and an alignment done. It may be old, but it's in great shape. We're excited to be taking it out for our first run this year.

So, if you're in Deadwood this weekend come on over to the book fest! June 8th from from 11-3:00 pm at the Deadwood Mountain Grand.

Here's the books I'll be bringing:

Finding Faith is Live! On Sale for .99!


The apocalypse had been and gone.
Those left banded together for survival, creating safety from the chaos.
They succeeded.

Faith wanted more, she wanted to live, to love, fly free. More than survival, Faith craved adventure. Leaving home, seeking a new life, all that ceased when she witnessed her sister being abducted-by dragons, creatures shrouded in myth. Determined to rescue her, Faith begins an adventure she never wants to end.

Dragon shifter Crag follows his heart, hunting for his fated mate. Once he finds her, Crag is determined to keep her safe, from all threats. Admitting he is a dragon shifter and involved in her sister’s kidnapping may be the end of them.

Until the interference of a race of dragons desperate for survival grasps their only chance, stealing Faith and drawing Crag along to save her.



Finding Faith is on sale for .99 cents until May 31!

Let's play a little!
Here's a puzzle of my cover.
It took me 2:08 to do it, lol.

What's your time?

Willow's Cry



When you've pissed off Mother Nature, anything can happen...



Blurb:
Alex is just a regular guy… who can hear the wind speak and the earth talk, not a bad thing for a Park Ranger if a bit unusual. His life is everything he desires. Until Mother Nature expresses her displeasure at his family’s threat to sell the land they had been charged to protect. Alex is left to try to stop the sale, finding a damsel in distress along the way who wraps herself around his heart.
Happy living in her tree, observing the world without joining in, Willow has yearned for Alex for years. Too shy to emerge, the little nymph is suddenly catapulted into Alex’s arms, her tree destroyed during a massive storm.
Mother Nature has a plan and she’ll do everything she can to force Alex’s family to continue their roles as guardians, even if it means sacrificing one she protects.

Another snowy Saturday here in Wisconsin! My second day after retiring. I’m going to try to accomplish one thing everyday that needs doing. Yesterday was cleaning the toilet and sink in the upstairs bathroom. LOL. So you can see that my goals aren’t lofty. Just necessary. Today, I’m babysitting but I’m going to work in the bathroom again. Cleaning up the stuff that has accumulated in there for years. I’m determined to de-hoard my house! Well, it may not be that bad, but it’s bad enough!
My daughter is in Madison taking the test for her LPN license! I’m praying she passes. I’m sure she will. She’s studied hard to pass everything. Next year she’ll be doing the same to get her RN. I’m so proud of my little girl.
This isn’t just a random picture of one of my books. The cover is actually my daughter almost four years ago. Just before she had my granddaughter.

A Sailor’s Delight


Lee Santiago went from one mistake to the next. When a friend dies, exposing his mortality all too well Lee’s family steps in to force him to make something of himself. He can’t be a party boy all his life and if he wants to sign his life away, it will be on the dotted line. He doesn’t even have time to say goodbye. Anyway it was only a drunken one night stand.
Isabelle was always the good girl. Until that night. When the man she’d always worshiped finally noticed her. She couldn’t say no. She’s heartsick to find out he doesn’t remember it. Isabelle’s life crashes around her when the results are in. The truth comes out and she has nowhere to turn. She looks for Lee, but he’s gone.
Will he be man enough to step up and face the consequences when he learns the truth?


Well now that I’ve done my little plug, lol, I’ll continue. Right now our life revolves around our girls. The D and GD if I start abbreviating. It’s not that we ignore our son. Not even. But, he lives in South Carolina. He recently was stationed there. We’re proud of our Marine, too!
Besides babysitting, I’ll be writing. Once the D is home, I’ll start back up on Finding Faith. I’m getting closer to the end. Then, I’ll go over the beta read my buddy Tamara Hoffa did for me before she passed. Then it’ll be heading off to my editor, Molly S Daniels. The cover will be worked on within the next few days. The artist JM Walker is unavailable for the next few days.
Then, the dreaded blurb! Though, I’ve been thinking about it. I actually have been reading a book about how to make your blurb. It really seems to help. I’ve been doing the exercises in the book and it is taking shape! So I have to read a book to finish my book lol.
I’m really trying to get at least three books done by May. If I have one done, I’ll be satisfied, but not exactly happy. One of them will be more of a novella. I’ve been almost done with it for years but had it just sitting there. Mind you, it still needs editing and a cover. But, I’ll finish one book at a time! The other is a children’s book. I’m still trying to find an appropriate title. Not to mention, I need to get an art program (I’ve been searching for the right one) to do the illustrations. I’ll be publishing my children’s books under a pen name to keep the kiddies from seeing my steamy side! They grow up too fast as it is.
Have a good weekend, and don’t forget to check for Sunday Sales tomorrow!
