Yes, RHP has released our eighth book!

First, there was REDUCED:

A devastating biological agent is about to be released, to be tested in remote areas. Rumor has it, though, that there is more to this than meets the eye. One group makes plans to hide out, and survive, in case that rumor proves to be truth. Meeting at an abandoned summer camp near St. Louis, Missouri, a dozen old friends gather after the alarm is raised.

Life becomes more precious, more tenuous, as time passes. Government controls tighten, people are herded into the city…or killed. Towns are obliterated. And soon, the enemy agenda becomes obvious.

Abby will come face-to-face with death, bear the responsibility for a young girl, and endure the severing of childhood relationships in the most terrible way imaginable.

From mere concealment to reconnaissance to aiding a rebellion, where will it end? Will the entire region be decimated, and who will be left alive to know?

Then, we had REUSED:

Colonel Barton has been replaced, and the new commander is sending his henchman, Major Blake, to scour the outlying areas and remove any insurgents. Abby and the girls have remained in the cave at the camp, relatively safe for now, but plans are underway to eliminate all of them…for personal reasons, known only to the commander himself.

Soon, however, worlds will collide as Captain Alison Hinson is transferred in from Chicago. In spite of her background, Alison is horrified by the tactics of her superiors in the field and begins to question her own stance on the new government. As she puts together the pieces of the past, she realizes that she and Abby are kindred spirits, faced with a mission not of their own choosing, but of circumstance.

Across the country, while officials and mercenaries live the high life, the citizenry are faced with more sanctions, more regulation, and fewer necessities. Pockets of rebellion are quickly quelled, but incidents continue to increase as more people make the decision to go underground. Literally.

From abandoned caves below St. Louis itself to a subterranean river winding north into Illinois, REUSED will tell you more, perhaps, than you truly wish to know about the potential for the utter collapse of our civilization.

And now, RECYCLED!

The population was REDUCED.

But some were REUSED.

And now, RECYCLED:

Abby is enroute to Chicago to find the children, and she has one final objective: to defeat the government and take back her life.

But Jules is focused on another mission, to return to St. Louis, and to Mario.

Will Abby succeed? Will Jules survive gang warfare? Who is Riley, and what is her secret?

Recycled – Third in the Series

So I’ve been struggling with this synopsis – I’ve gotten a lot of good advice, and some suggestions, and it’s not finished by any means, but here’s the general idea:


VADER is released by the government as a test, but things go horribly wrong. Abby and her group flee St. Louis and its suburbs to hide out at an abandoned camp and fight to survive. Many are lost, but Abby persists in saving Jules, a small girl, and escapes to a secret cave where she remains hidden for years.


It’s been ten years since Co-opCom unleashed VADER. Abby has kept Jules hidden away in the remote cave, but they’re forced to leave when the military arrives to assassinate them all.

More survivors are discovered in their new location, and a scouting mission into St. Louis reveals an even larger group attempting to subvert the government and reclaim their lives. But children are missing, taken for experimentation purposes, and a rescue plan is made.


Abby is enroute to Chicago with a rescue plan, and one final objective: to defeat the government, to take back her life.

But Jules is focused on another mission, to return to St. Louis, to Mario.

Will Abby succeed? Will Jules survive gang warfare? Who is Riley, and what is her secret?

That said, it’s still a work-in-progress, but will be finished by the end of this week. Yeah, I know, just a couple days…
