What He Deserves

by RJ Crayton


He can hear them, as he lies in the hospital bed. "Coma," the nurses whisper. An accident. A 911 call. But Richard remembers none of it. What happened to him?

Richard Lyons knows he’s a good man–a good husband, a good provider, a good father. He works hard and doesn’t suffer fools.

So, when he finds himself in a coma, unable to speak, but able to hear those around him, he’s desperate to awaken. Desperate to return to the life he remembers with his wife, Clarissa, and son, Andrew. Only the life he remembers doesn’t match what's happening.

Richard's memory is like swiss cheese: riddled with holes.

As flashes of life come back to him, Richard sees the life he thought he knew fade away after a shocking revelation about Andrew. Hoping recovering his memories will be the key to awakening, Richard struggles to recall where things went wrong. Only, as snippets of his past return to him, Richard begins to wonder which will be worse: never remembering at all or knowing the whole truth...

Qualify (The Atlantis Grail Book 1)

by Vera Nazarian


You have two options. You die, or you Qualify.

The year is 2047. An extinction-level asteroid is hurtling toward Earth, and the descendants of ancient Atlantis have returned from the stars in their silver ships to offer humanity help.

But there’s a catch.

They can only take a tiny percent of the Earth’s population back to the colony planet Atlantis. And in order to be chosen, you must be a teen, you must be bright, talented, and athletic, and you must Qualify.

Sixteen-year-old Gwenevere Lark is determined not only to Qualify but to rescue her entire family.

Because there’s a loophole.

If you are good enough to Qualify, you are eligible to compete in the brutal games of the Atlantis Grail, which grants all winners the laurels, high tech luxuries, and full privileges of Atlantis Citizenship. And if you are in the Top Ten, then all your wildest wishes are granted… Such as curing your mother’s cancer.

There is only one problem.

Gwen Lark is known as a klutz and a nerd. While she’s a hotshot in classics, history, science, and languages, the closest she’s come to sports is a backyard pool and a skateboard.

This time she is in over her head, and in for a fight of her life, against impossible odds and world-class competition—including Logan Sangre, the most amazing guy in her school, the one she’s been crushing on, and who doesn’t seem to know she exists.

Because every other teen on Earth has the same idea.

You Qualify or you die.
