The Blind Alien

The Blind Alien
The Beta Earth Chronicles Book 1
by Wesley Britton
Genre: SciFi Fantasy
“The Blind Alien is a story with a highly original concept, fascinating
characters, and not-too-subtle but truthful allegories. Don’t let the
sci-fi label or alternate Earth setting fool you–this is a
compelling and contemporarily relevant story about race, sex, and
social classes.”–Raymond Benson, Former James Bond novelist and
author of the Black Stiletto books
Told with one of the most original styles you’ll ever experience, The
Blind Alien begins when Dr. Malcolm Renbourn, a young history
teacher, walks into an ordinary bank on an ordinary day. Suddenly, he
feels excruciating pain. Unexpectedly, he loses his sight and
discovers he has been drawn against his will across the multi-verse
to a slave-holding country on a parallel earth. He doesn’t understand
a single word he hears, but he soon learns Betan scientists hope his
body carries the cure to an ancient plague that kills 3out
of 4 male babies their first year.
Branded state property, he must escape, but where can a blind man in a
strange world dominated by desperate scientists run? And on a world
where polygamy is the norm, how can a fugitive alien adapt into
becoming the husband of five independent wives who never expected to
be the mothers of a generation a planet hopes carry the genes that
will change everything? How can Tribe Renbourn survive the aftermath
of a catastrophic explosion that kills thousands?
And that’s just part of the story.
“A most commendable and unique novel. I can honestly say I have not come
across anything quite like it. The Blind Alien follows the life of an
unremarkable man who by some twist of fate is pulled from his world,
into that of one parallel . . . What follows is a story of rebellion,
politics, love, science, and religion . . . without a doubt, this is
an admirably well crafted piece of work, that was both entertaining
and very thought provoking.”–Tosin
Coker, author of The Chronicles of Zauba’ah
Blind Alien is free on KU and only 99c to buy.
Immerse yourself in an extraordinary universe revealed by the most original
storytelling you’ll ever experience. “Science fiction yes, but so
much more.”
Besides his 33 years in the classroom, Dr. Wesley Britton considers his
Beta-Earth Chronicles the most important work he’s ever done. “I
suppose an author profile is intended to be a good little biography,”
Britton says, “but the best way to know who I am is to read my novels.”
Still, a few things you might like to know about Wes include the fact he’s
the author of four non-fiction books on espionage in the media, most
notably The Encyclopedia of TV Spies (2009). Beginning in 1983, he
was a widely published poet, article writer for a number of
encyclopedias, and was a noted scholar of American literature. Since
those days, for sites like BlogCritics.org and BookPleasures.com,
Britton wrote over 500 music, book, and movie reviews. For seven
years, he was co-host of online radio’s Dave White Presents for which
he contributed celebrity interviews with musicians, authors, actors,
and entertainment insiders.
Starting in fall 2015, his science fiction series, The Beta-Earth Chronicles,
debuted with The Blind Alien. Throughout 2016, four sequels followed
including The Blood of Balnakin, When War Returns, A Throne for an
Alien, and The Third Earth. Return to Alpha will be the sixth volume
of this multi-planetary epic.
Britton earned his doctorate in American Literature at the University of
North Texas in 1990. He taught English at Harrisburg Area Community
College until his retirement in 2016. He serves on the Board of
Directors for Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania. He lives with
his one and only wife, Betty, in Harrisburg, PA.

Day Reaper

Day Reaper
The Night Blood Series #4
by Melody Johnson
Genre: Paranormal Romance
On the brink of death, Cassidy DiRocco demands that New York City’s
master of the supernatural, Dominic Lysander, transform her—reporter,
Night Blood, sister, human—into the very creature she’s feared
and fought against for months: a vampire. The pain is brutal, she
could lose the career she’s worked so hard to achieve, and her
world will never be the same. But surviving is worth any risk,
especially when it means gaining the strength to fight against
Jillian Allister, the sister who betrayed Dominic, attacked Cassidy,
and is leading a vampire uprising that will destroy all of New York City . . .
When she awakens, however, Cassidy realizes the cost of being transformed
might be more than she was willing to sacrifice. But if Cassidy hopes
to right the irrevocable wrongs that Jillian and her army of the
Damned have wrought on New York City, she’ll need to not only
accept her new senses, body, and cravings, but wield them in her
favor. Irresistible and enigmatic as Dominic is, he no longer has
command over the city or its vampires. Only Cassidy has the
connections to convince the humans, Day Reapers, and the few vampires
still loyal to Dominic to join forces. And maybe, if Dominic can
accept her rising power over the coven he once commanded for the past
several hundred years, the two of them together might forge a bond
more potent than history has ever known. . .
Eternal Reign
The Night Blood Series #3
THE LEVELING
Last week, Cassidy DiRocco had some influence over the vampires that stalk
the streets of New York City. She was never completely safe, but with
her newfound abilities as a night blood and her honed instincts as a
crime reporter, at least she had the necessary skills to survive.
Now, thanks to the injuries she sustained while saving her brother from a
fate worse than death, she’s lost her night blood status just as
another crime spree hits Brooklyn. Dozens of people are being
slaughtered, and each victim bears the Damned’s signature mark; a
missing heart.
Cassidy will need the help of all her allies to survive the coming war,
including the mysterious and charismatic Dominic Lysander, Master
Vampire of New York City. But as his rival’s army threatens his
coven and his own powers weaken with the approaching Leveling, even
Dominic’s defenses might not be enough protection.
With nothing left to lose, Cassidy must find the power inside herself to
save Dominic, his coven, their city, and survive.
Sweet Last Drop
The Night Blood Series #2
Trust No One
Cassidy DiRocco knows the dark side intimately–as a crime reporter in New
York City, she sees it every day. But since she discovered that she’s
a night blood, her power and potential has led the dark right to her
doorway. With her brother missing and no one remembering he exists,
she makes a deal with Dominic Lysander, the fascinating master
vampire of New York, to find him.
Dominic needs the help of Bex, another master vampire, to keep peace in the
city, so he sends Cassidy to a remote, woodsy town upstate to
convince her–assuming she survives long enough. A series of vicious
“animal attacks” after dark tells Cassidy there’s more to
Bex and her coven than anyone’s saying. That goes double for fellow
night blood Ian Walker, the tall, blond animal tracker who’s supposed
to be her ally. Walker may be hot-blooded and hard-bodied, but he’s
hiding something too. If Cassidy wants the truth, she’ll have to
squeeze it out herself… every last drop.
The City Beneath
The Night Blood Series #1
As a journalist, Cassidy DiRocco thought she had seen every depraved
thing New York City’s underbelly had to offer. But while covering
what appears to be a vicious animal attack, she finds herself drawn
into a world she never knew existed. Her exposé makes her the target
of the handsome yet brutal Dominic Lysander, the Master Vampire of
New York City, who has no problem silencing her to keep his coven’s
secrets safe…
But Dominic offers Cassidy another option: ally. He reveals she is a
night blood, a being with powers of her own, including the ability to
become a vampire. As the body count escalates, Cassidy is caught in
the middle of a vampire rebellion. Dominic insists she can help him
stop the coming war, but wary of his intentions, Cassidy enlists the
help of the charming Ian Walker, a fellow night blood. As the battle
between vampires takes over the city, Cassidy will have to tap into
her newfound powers and decide where to place her trust…
Melody Johnson is the author of the Night Blood series. She graduated
magna cum laude from Lycoming College with her B.A. in creative
writing and psychology. While still earning her degree, she worked as
