ALLOW ME TO RUIN YOUR CHRISTMAS

He just discovered why his dad died. Now ‘tis the season for a rampage of revenge…

 

Beckett needs his eyes bleached. Catching his mom and his favorite podcaster doing things that will get them on Santa’s naked and naughty list is enough to turn his stomach. And after he agrees to officially meet the new boyfriend, his slightly nauseous Yuletide cheer devolves into rage when he learns the guy was involved in his father’s death.

 

Driven by the need for vengeance, the incensed son sets out to stuff the home-wrecking grinch’s stocking with burning coal—by going after the loser’s wife and daughter. But as Beckett's gore-trimmed plan descends into chaos, another ghastly secret could send him into murderous overdrive.

 

Is he about to unwrap a no-holds-barred retribution spree?

 

Allow Me to Ruin Your Christmas is a perfectly gruesome revenge thriller. If you like characters pushed over the edge, dark acts, and family drama, then you’ll love Freddy Cruz’s bloodstained holiday treat.

THEY CANCELED THE DJ

When a hotheaded DJ is caught in a viral web of vengeance, it’s unlikely he’ll find the wisdom to quiet his inner critic. 

 

Radio jock Aubrey Cortes cares way too much about what others think. After he humiliates himself in front of a listener-turned-love interest, he’s horrified when the explosive episode goes viral. But, after the disaster turns into a first date, he find the courage to celebrate with a barrage of search-and-destroy tweets aimed at torpedoing his online critics.

 

Thrilled when his newfound viral fame lands him a nationally syndicated show, he uses his connections to arrange a backstage pass to meet his new squeeze’s legendary musical idol.

 

Cue mayhem.

 

Aubrey’s heart is cruelly betrayed on centerstage, and blows up big time. Again.

 

And now he wants payback.

 

Can Aubrey eat humble pie and take a Zen lesson or three, or will he go down in a fiery fit of revenge?

 

A riotous romp, They Canceled the DJ is an outrageous standalone dark comedy caper packed with over-the-top antics, satirical commentary, and humorous twists.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS FOR THE HOLIDAYS IN 2019
Retired Navy SEAL Hayder Randall would do anything to defend his country.

 

But when his ex-girlfriend Elizabeth―the First Daughter of the United States―watches her parents fall victim to a brutal assassination, he's shocked when she stages a coup and takes over the country.

 

With the nation split down the middle and his vengeful ex out for blood, it's Randall's duty to lead the resistance.

 

As chaos and martial law reign, Elizabeth repeals the First Amendment and begins a campaign of public executions.

 

But Randall vows to put a stop to the death and destruction, enlisting the help of a retired Green Beret and a rogue FBI agent.

 

But democracy is never bulletproof.

 

Can an ex-SEAL and his rebels take down an unhinged dictator before America falls? Or will Randall find himself next on the nationally-televised chopping block?

 

This provocative, politically-charged dystopian thriller provides a dark glimpse at an all-too-possible future.
