Slowly Melting

"Slowly Melting: When the sun sets off the bomb" by Yuval Hollander

Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. On a high cliff above the Pacific Ocean, long-range missiles - concealed in hidden silos - are being prepared for action. Helicopters come and go. Heavy radar equipment is put into place. The most significant, sensitive, and dangerous military experiment in the history of the world is about to begin. Deep underground, in the command bunker known as “Fort Knox,” a final briefing takes place. President Harry Brough is seen on a large screen. On another screen, a live feed from NASA’s solar radiation monitoring system displays the progress of a solar storm. When the storm reaches its peak, the surveillance window for launching a nuclear-armed Minuteman missile will begin. Professor Burt Arnold, NASA Director of Solar Anomalies, explains to the President the massive storm’s potential for devastating global impact. Five-Star General Thomas J. McAllister has just received a situation update from U.S. Navy supercarriers and jets on full alert off the coast of North Korea. All the pieces are in place; the operation will commence as soon as solar radiation levels are right. About to retire after a stellar career that included deployments in Kuwait, Serbia, Iraq and Afghanistan, McAllister was supposed to begin transition leave today, but the president and the Joint Chiefs of Staff convinced him to delay his departure. The most highly classified mission in history needed the leadership of America’s top soldier. McAllister thought about how difficult it would be to tell his wife and daughter that he would not be joining them for a planned vacation in Thailand. It wasn’t the first time duty’s call had changed family plans. But this time was different. When the solar electromagnetic radiation nears its peak, people around the world begin to realize that their greatest fears about the portended storm were coming true. Satellites, electric grids, and any aircraft, ship, or vehicle using GPS are affected. Quite possibly, the storm might also affect the Minuteman missile, only a second before it leaves the atmosphere and loses contact. Meanwhile, the leaders of the United States and North Korea have their fingers poised over the so-called “red buttons,” ready to ignite nuclear war at any time. Will the sun sets off the bomb?

My Lady Zane

"My Lady Zane" by Steven M. Sullivan

| Author | Facebook | Instagram | Inspired by true events in our American history! A story about an amazing female war hero.  "A love story unfolds through letters sent to a female Marine on tour, circa 2003 in Iraq. Through her grandmother's letters, the Marine Sergeant learns of her relative Betty Zane, who was brave, passionate and daring enough to go up against the British and the Indians to save her country and the man she loves. Reviews: "I loved it!" I’ve never been one to critique a book, pull it apart or say how it could be better. When reading a book I either love it or it goes unfinished. I loved it! I loved how the story of the past was relived through a series of letters from the present. So much so... it’s inspired me to look more into the history of the Siege of Fort Henry. I also want to thank Steve for taking the time to answer my curiosity questions while still in the first few chapters of the book.~ Cheryl "Surprisingly well written, beautiful, harrowing story" Beautifully written and, though it is fiction, it’s well researched and feels so true. The back story of the author and his family tree come alive in this generational page turner. It honors the women we so often forget. I found it to be an easy, fun read with all the emotion you hope to find in a good novel. I look forward to this author’s next book. Highly recommended.~ Kepela
