Return of A.G. is HERE!

Posted by Marcus Haynes on July 26, 2017 at 1:09pm 0 Comments

The day has come! It's been two years (real world time and book time) since we last heard about the superpowered teens, the Elementals, working to protect their world. Now, they are focused on stopping the Prudence kids from enacting their worst plan yet: bringing back A.G. 

This book of diverse and intersectional superheroes is all about showing what happens when narratives get twisted, and how important it is to trust in yourself. The Elementals learn a lot about the world in this sequel, and that lesson takes you on an adventure you won't forget! 

The book is available NOW on Amazon,…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
