Book 1 of the Day Soldiers series (Books 2, 3, and 4 are also available. Book 5 is coming soon).
A legion of vampires and werewolves has declared war on the human race.
For ten years now, humanity has been at war with the creatures of darkness. The war has changed the world. The day now belongs to humanity and the night belongs to things once thought to exist only in myths and legends... but there is hope. This new enemy has united humanity and an army has stepped forward to protect the light from the darkness. An army of heroes.
The Day Soldiers.
Eighteen year old Lily Baxter always knew the Day Soldiers would be a major part of her life. She had been preparing for it since she was eight. She was ready to go to war. The one thing she wasn't prepared for was the day the war came to her.
Part horror, part comedy, part adventure, Day Soldiers will take you on an exciting ride through a world where monsters are monsters and the only thing they fall in love with is the taste of human blood.
Sometimes, the only way to get rid of an infestation is to light a fire. A purging fire. There are those who believe the rise of the vampire is nature's own purging fire, set to rid the world of the infestation known as humanity.
The Day Soldiers disagree.
Since the Battle of New York a year ago, life has not been easy for the Day Soldiers. They have taken a beating. The creatures of darkness have declared victory and are working to build a new world where human beings are a food source and nothing more.
Humanity is hurt, but not defeated. Led by Commander Geoff Wallace, the surviving soldiers have a plan in place to take the world back from the dead.
Purging Fires raises the stakes in all regards. The fate of the world rests in the hands of a small team of soldiers devoted to standing against the darkness. Through adversity, we gain strength, but there are limits. We are, after all, only human...
Here are a few hints about what happened: It involved gun fights, the animated dead, and plenty of man-eating animals...
In this issue, like all issues of The Man From Newella, no punches are pulled. Enjoy your visceral romp through a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
This issue is a 17,454 word Novella.
This road ends in a collection of short stories by 25 of the most gifted writers of our time. Intended for lovers of short fiction everywhere, the End of the Road is a must read for anyone intent on keeping current with the literary scene.

After more than a decade of fighting, the end has finally arrived. The war is almost over.
Topia has been born.
A few courageous Day Soldiers have chosen to make a final stand against a world of vampires. They know it's a battle they'll probably lose, but they made a promise to protect the day and it's a promise they intend to keep.
They fight because they are the Day Soldiers. They fight because nobody else can.
They fight because, if they don't, all hope is lost.
Sometimes, redefining victory is the only way to achieve it...
The war against the vampires has been over for sixteen years. Humans control the American continents. Werewolves control the forests. Vampires control the rest of the world.
A new president has risen to power in Topia and the Day Soldiers must decide if he's a friend or an enemy. If he's a friend, great. Peace will continue. But if he's an enemy, fighting him won't be easy. He's not just commanding an army. He's the leader of a vampire world.
Everything has changed. The old rules no longer apply. The Day Soldiers know they have two choices: They can die... or they can evolve.
On July 14, 2081, the sky rained blood, the animals turned against humanity, and the shadows learned how to walk the dead. It didn't take long for our fragile civilization to crumble.
That was the beginning of the Crimson Age, which lasted the better part of two decades. Life was tough in those days. Humanity was spiraling downward and there seemed to be no way out.
Then he came.
Most people say he was from Newella, Earth's first lunar colony. Truth is, nobody really knows. Far as the world was concerned, he was nobody and he came from nowhere.
He came and he changed... everything.
The Sheriff's Tale is the exciting first story in the Man From Newella series. Each novella is designed to be fast and fun, able to be read in one to two sittings (this issue is around 20,000 words).
This series is about the early adventures of the man from Newella, before he became a legend.
So kick back and enjoy your time in the Crimson Age. Life's rough here, but it's never boring.
And remember, there's plenty more on the way. This is just the beginning...
Whether it's erotic, horrific or simply bloody, there is an intimacy between the predator and his or her prey, and once bitten, both are never the same again. These 28 tales encompass our most primal fears and fantasies. Stories that are amusing, poignant, sexy or acerbic, the reader, once tempted, will want to return again and again.

The Sneaker's Handbook is a 12,000 word companion piece to The Day Soldiers Trilogy (Day Soldiers, Purging Fires, and Topia). It's presented as if it were written by the "Information Division" of the Day Soldiers. Start to finish, it never breaks that reality.
It was written because you, the readers, requested it.
If you've already read the Day Soldiers novels, this manual is a fun companion to that series. If you haven't read Day Soldiers, this manual is a great introduction to that world.
This is the handbook issued to Lily Baxter the day she joined The Day Soldiers. In the novels Day Soldiers, Purging Fires and Topia, humanity learns many new things about the Legion. In the interest of avoiding major spoilers, this is the manual issued to Day Soldiers before the events of those novels.
Our ignorance is their greatest weapon.
You've finally had enough. You've finally decided you can't stomach the news reports of people being imprisoned by vampires and towns being decimated by werewolves. You've finally decided to join The War Against the Darkness.
You joined the Day Soldiers and were assigned to the Sneakers Division.
This manual is the first step in your journey to becoming a Day Soldier. From a brief history of the war to survival tips for fighting vampires and werewolves, The Sneaker's Handbook prepares all new recruits for their upcoming training.
Welcome to the Day Soldiers.
Like his full length novels, these stories explore the quirky horror genre that Brandon has loved for as long as he can remember. These tales will bring you face to face with ghosts, zombies, and an insane mind or two. From the emotionally stirring tale of "The Shoebox" to the dark humor of "The Date," Tales From Hale is a great introduction to Brandon Hale's writing.
Lauren's life had reached a turning point. She had no idea what the future held. She wasn't sure about her job or her marriage. Life had become too complex, and she didn't like it. Then they came, and everything changed...
The Gods and the Builders is Brandon Hale's very intimate view of an extremely monumental event: Alien visitation. His exciting new novel deals with the event in a very powerful way. It's not about the government's reaction. It's about four average people who must deal with this life changing event.
When the world changes, what in your life will still matter... and what won't?
