It’s a last-minute deer hunt at Bigfoot Ranch in Eastern Oregon. Wilderness guide Hart Davis reluctantly agrees to a booking: seven rough-looking men who don't look like they need any pointers on killing things. Little does Hart know that an innocent, long-ago favor—a package stashed away and forgotten—has become something worth killing for.
Alone, with only the clothes on his back, Hart must survive not only being hunted by ruthless mercenaries and the local authorities, but also the onset of winter in the Strawberry Mountains. He has only one advantage: he knows this wilderness like the back of his hand. Somehow, he has to survive long enough to get the message out—a message that could topple a government.
Within the Juan de Fuca fault, monsters stir.
A coastal town nestled just outside Seattle, Everett is a picture-perfect paradise, but the Indigenous myths tell of when the darkness came out of the ocean and killed everything, the world cleansed and begun anew.
An unusual specimen washed up on the shore has Professors Charlie Wice and Carol Wheatley buzzing with excitement, but what the ocean has spat out is far more dangerous than either could imagine.
As the darkness slithers closer, and the deaths start to mount, the residents of Everett and St Aloysius Island are locked in a battle against an enemy as implacable as they are numerous. As the earth shakes once again, another battle looms on the horizon – fast flowing and deadly.
Who will survive when the ocean bares its fangs?

Small Business Survivalist Handbook: A Contrarian's Guide for Mom and Pops
When I started out I was given all kinds of advice about owning a small business. Most of it was wrong even when it was meant to inspire me—especially when it was meant to inspire me.
But reality has a way of imposing itself.
What I’m offering in this book is what I’ve learned from thirty-five years of mistakes, trial and error, and of listening to bullshit.
Business is hard but it doesn’t have to be impossible.
There are a lot of myths in small business and much of the common wisdom is flat wrong. The myths are perpetuated by the promotional/inspiration/advertising industry whose job really is to sell you on the idea of owning the business, not on the actual nuts and bolts of running a small business.
Most of all, this book is meant to steer you toward listening to your own experience and instincts.
To think for yourself.
To be skeptical of easy answers.
To look for the reality beneath all the mythology.
If I can save you from even one of my mistakes, then this book will be worth it.
