Cold Energy parts 1 & 2 (Alex Cave Series books 2&3, Cold Energy/Red Energy)

It was supposed to be a rich deposit of frozen methane on the seafloor, but beneath it was an ancient alien artifact. Once disturbed, it begins causing devastating earthquakes and freezing the oceans in a matter of minutes.


Sudden freezing temperatures cause weather patterns to change for the worse and threaten a catastrophe that will affect the entire world. Alex leads a small band of volunteers on the high-tech research vessel named the Mystic in a desperate attempt to remedy the situation before civilization faces ecological disaster, but members of the group have their own agenda, seeking wealth and fame through murder and seduction.

Captain John Dieter’s greed blinds him to the suffering caused by the disastrous weather conditions, and he enlists the help of modern day pirates to capture the Mystic and take it to an unknown island in the Bering Sea, the supposed location of a vast horde of stolen treasure.

Alex begins a desperate race to find the Mystic, the only ship capable of finding a solution. Just when he thinks he might succeed, he is betrayed by one of the crew, who steals the advanced alien technology and takes it to COBRA, a private top-secret research facility south of Yellowstone National Park.

The scientists have no idea what they’re dealing with, and when Alex’s family and everyone on earth are put in grave danger, he begins a desperate race to save them. If he fails, every living thing on the planet will die a slow and painful death.

Hello. I’m James M. Corkill, a Veteran, and retired Federal Firefighter from Washington State, USA. I was an electronic technician and studied mechanical engineering in my spare time before eventually becoming a firefighter for 32-years and retiring. I’ve since settled into the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina, and I have a fantastic view from my writing desk.

I began writing in 1997, and was fortunate to meet a famous horror writer named Hugh B. Cave, who became my mentor. In 2002, I rushed to self-published a dozen copies of Dead Energy so my wife could see my book before she was taken by cancer. When my soul mate was gone, I stopped writing and began drinking heavily.

My favorite quote. “When you wake up in the morning, you never know where the day will take you.”

In 2013, I met a stranger who recognized my name and had enjoyed an old copy of Dead Energy, except for the ending. When she encouraged me to start writing again, I realized this chance meeting was just what I needed to hear at the right moment. I quit drinking and began the rewrite of Dead Energy into The Alex Cave Series. Now I’m a bestselling and award-winning author, and I’m thankful for that fateful encounter.
