An Anthology to Celebrate the Raid #Area51 - Detective Heavenborn



Don't bother with the raid. Stay home and learn all about it in the comfort of your own home.


BLURB: What’s in Area 51? Is the government hiding aliens? Elvis? Maybe the set of the Apollo moon landing? Do you know?

We do.

Join this multi-genre group as they explore the hidden recesses of Area 51, which up until now have only been whispered conspiracies. Don’t bother with the raid. Stay home, read these awesome stories and learn all you need to know.

The truth is just a page-flip away.

*All proceeds will go to US Veterans.

Read my short story, DETECTIVE HEAVENBORN, in We Know the Truth, Do You? An Anthology to Celebrate the Raid.

Who is Detective Heavenborn, and what's inside the package she has to retrieve from Area 51?


Excerpt from my story DETECTIVE HEAVENBORN:

“I don’t know how else to say this but to come right out with it. I need the two of you to go to Area 51.”

Avrianna blinked. Surely, she had misheard Chief Logan. Perhaps he had said, “Aurora Air One,” the airport. After all, Area 51 wasn’t even on their world!

“Sir.” Chuck shifted on his feet. “Do you mean the Area 51 on Earth? The military site believed to be a top-secret base for alien and UFO investigations?”

Chief Logan gave a brisk nod. “One and the same. We’ve been tasked with the mission to retrieve an item that New Terrene gave to US custody years ago for data discovery. And we’re to bring it safely back here for our scientists to do further examinations.”

Avrianna couldn’t believe what Chief Logan was asking her to do. “Sir…respectfully…you want me, a woman who was found floating in the middle of the ocean as a newborn, to go to Area 51?”

Chief Logan stared at her, apparently not understanding her concern.

“You want me, a woman who people believe to be an alien, to go to Area 51? A woman who has been experimented on by scientists here on New Terrene, and who has unexplained powers?” She glanced between him and Chuck. “Is this a joke?”

Or worse yet…a trap?



QUESTIONS: Do you believe in aliens? What do you think is in Area 51?

Congratulations on the anthology! That must've been a fun story to write.

Sarah Foster said...

Congrats on the anthology! That excerpt makes me want to learn more about Avrianna's backstory.

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Alex! And thanks for helping with the blog tour!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you! And that is awesome. That's exactly what I was hoping for from readers. :)

This is a much better idea than raiding Area 51. Congrats on the anthology.

H.R. Sinclair said...

Congrats! Mulit-genre is pretty cool too.

The link to the website is weird--shall I say alein? It links to a facebook/leaving facebook page.

nashvillecats2 said...

Congrats Chrys this was great to read. Well done.

Yvonne.

T. Powell Coltrin said...

Oh Wow! Your short sounds so good!

Lisa Thomson said...

Congrats, Chrys. This is a fascinating excerpt. I don't think it's possible that earth is the only planet in the universe with life... enter *Twilight Zone theme music*

Jeff said...

Congratulations on your story being published. I used to travel through that area a lot, when I lived in Southern Utah and would be heading to the Sierras, Death Valley or even Northern Nevada. Here is a piece I wrote in my former blog about Rachel:

Great looking anthology! As a fun fact... back in the early 70s, my husband dropped out of school for a semester to work out at Mercury in Area 51. He never saw anything weirder than the collection of geeky college students who were doing the biomass survey there... :D

Janie Junebug said...

I doubt if anything interesting is in Area 51. I don't think much about aliens. Maybe they visit us. As long as they don't bother me, I don't care what they do.

Love,
Janie

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks!

That's odd the links work for me on my computer, but on my phone shows the "leaving Facebook link." If you click to leave, it does bring you to the site, though. I'll re-upload the link and see if that changes anything.

Chrys Fey said...

Much safer and less expensive.

Thank you!

Nice excerpt!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Yvonne!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you! :D

Chrys Fey said...

I don't think so, either.

What's funny from your comment is that I mention the Twilight Zone theme song in my story! :P

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you!

Chrys Fey said...

Only the people who work there really know.

Oh...wait..I mean the authors of the anthology know. Yup, I know. ;)

Chrys Fey said...

That is a fun fact! Thanks for sharing it!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you! I will hop on over to read your blog post. :)

sherry fundin said...

Congratulations Chrys! Do I believe? I'm open minded, but I would like to see for myself...

Juneta key said...

Congratulations. I love stuff like this. You story sounds like a fun read.

H.R. Sinclair said...

You know, I didn't even try that. I just copied the link and pasted it into a new browser window. But it works now. :-)

Natalie Aguirre said...

Congrats on your story in the anthology. It sounds like a great story.

SpacerGuy said...

Well done Area51 has quite the reputation for alien invasions, why its not unknown is it? Such a great story for believers!

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I figure the book is way more entertaining than the raid. Remember all the commotion about Al Capone's safe? Didn't it turn out to be empty?

I voted! Best of luck.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Congrats, Chrys!

Heather Erickson said...

The anthology looks great--and so does your story! Congratulations!

I love the blurb! What a great idea for an anthology and I love even more where the proceeds are going. Very awesome!

Sherry Ellis said...

Sounds like a fun anthology! Not sure I believe in aliens, at least the super-intelligent kind. But you never know...

diedre Knight said...

Congratulations! Captivating excerpt. I bet your story will be as much fun to read as it had to have been to write!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you! And thanks for hosting us!

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks, Diane!

Chrys Fey said...

Being open-minded is all that matters. :)

Thanks, Sherry!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you, Natalie!

Chrys Fey said...

Absolutely! Thank you for your comment!

Chrys Fey said...

I figure the same. ;)

Thanks!

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you so much, Heather!

Chrys Fey said...

It only makes sense to give all of the proceed to US veterans. :)

Chrys Fey said...

You never know... ;)

Chrys Fey said...

Thank you so much, Diedre!

I sure hope so. I love this character. I've written a lot about her. I just need to share her stories now.
