Secret Identities.

Extraordinary Powers.

She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies—humans with extraordinary abilities—who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone...except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice—and in Nova. But Nova's allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

COVER REVEAL: Mrs. Claus : Not The Fairy Tale They Say (Anthology)


When you think of Mrs. Claus, do you imagine a quiet North Pole homebody who finds complete fulfillment in baking cookies, petting reindeer and crafting toys alongside elves? How about a magic-wielding ice goddess, or a tough-as-nails Valkyrie? Or maybe an ancient fae of dubious intentions, or a well-meaning witch? Could Mrs. Claus be a cigar-smoking Latina, or a crash-landed alien? Within these pages Mrs. Claus is a hero, a villain, a mother, a spacefarer, a monster hunter, and more. The only thing she decidedly is not, is a sidekick.

It’s Mrs. Claus’ turn to shine and she is stepping out of Santa’s shadow and into the spotlight in these fourteen spectacular stories that make her the star! Featuring original short stories by Laura VanArendonk Baugh, C.B. Calsing, DJ Tyrer, Jennifer Lee Rossman, Kristen Lee, Randi Perrin, Michael Leonberger, Andrew Wilson, Ross Van Dusen, MLD Curelas, Maren Matthias, Anne Luebke, Jeff Kuykendall, and Hayley Stone.

Infect Me by Lauren Hammond
Coming December 26, 2017

Samara Moore and Trevor George are convinced they can overcome anything as long as they're together--even a deadly virus that has infected half of the city.

The city of Boston has become a slave to the infected--humans that have slowly turned into monsters with only one thing on their mind, consuming flesh.

Samara has loved the reckless and wild Trevor since she was fourteen years old. The same goes for Trevor; he loves Mara fully and has always been the rock that holds everything together.

Until the day comes when he can't anymore.

In the midst of a global pandemic; Samara is torn between love and death, her head and heart and now she's left with two choices and one epic decision. She can either save herself or give up everything--including her life.

The World's Greatest Adventure Machine Blog Tour! Giveaways!


Welcome to Day #2 of The World's Greatest Adventure Machine Blog Tour!

To celebrate the release of The World's Greatest Adventure Machine by Frank L. Cole (8/8/17), blogs across the web are featuring exclusive content from Frank and 10 chances to win a copy of Adventure Machine, as well as theme park tickets in the Grand Prize Giveaway!


Fantasy Movie Cast


Trevor Isaacs - would be played by Jason Drucker (the newest Greg Heffley in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid films) There’s something about the kids cast in the Wimpy Kids films. They’re so confident and yet bumbling. It’s the perfect combination for someone playing Trevor who has natural confidence, but makes a ton of mistakes.
Devin Drobbs - would be played by Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair in Stranger Things). I love his attitude and toughness in that show. He’s stubborn too and Devin has to be one of the most stubborn characters I have ever written. 
Nika Pushkin – In a perfect world where I could pick anyone to play this part, I would’ve selected Danica McKellar (Winnie Cooper on the Wonder Years show back in the 80’s.) I based Nika off of her, but of course, Danica is much older now and would have a hard time pulling off the 12-year-old girl from Russia. So instead, it would have to be Olivia Rodrigo who stars in American Girl – Grace Stirs up Success.
Cameron Kiffing – He’s probably my favorite, just because he’s so unique and obnoxious, yet there’s such an endearing nature about him. I would love for Atticus Shaffer who plays Brick Heck on The Middle to take on the role of Cameron. He’s hilarious in that show and would be the perfect fit as Cameron.
Doug Castleton – Definitely Owen Wilson! I envisioned Owen, who’s one of my favorite actors, as Doug from the very beginning.

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken Virtual Signing!











Hey GCReaders!

Woot Woot!

We have gotten tons of request for this one, and here it is!!!

This is a BRAND NEW middle grade book by the amazing and super sweet, ALEXANDRA BRACKEN!!! :) 


Please read all terms & conditions before placing your order. 



"I would say it's a pleasure to meet thee, Prosperity Oceanus Redding, but truly, I only anticipate the delights of destroying thy happiness."

Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history — that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper's great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made — and then broke — a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, four-thousand-year-old Alastor isn't exactly the forgiving type.

The fiend has reawakened with one purpose — to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend, who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his future without a side of eternal servitude, thanks.

Little does Prosper know, the malefactor's control over his body grows stronger with each passing night, and there's a lot Alastor isn't telling his dim-witted (but admittedly strong-willed) human host.

From #1 New York Times best-selling author Alexandra Bracken comes a tale of betrayal and revenge, of old hurts passed down from generation to generation. Can you ever fully right a wrong, ever truly escape your history? Or will Prosper and Alastor be doomed to repeat it?
