    JCS, Graphic Novelist of Six Novels

    in Writing

    From living a nightmare, to building a dream. Graphic Novelist J.C.S. may only be 27 years old but she has come a long way. Abused as a child, and seemingly lost as a teen, she has turned her scraps into diamonds. So far, she has written six novels, has published five of those novels, and as also finished a trilogy known as Anguished Immortals.


    She will tell you, her goal was this: to publish and take care of her family. Her first attempt to write a novel came at the age of 15, and in between ten years, she tried and failed.


    Growing up in Denver, Colorado, it was realized (and said) countless times that opportunity in the workforce was greater and more stable than most states, especially for a woman. But having Systemic Lupus and two children only ten and a half months apart changed everything.


    Early 2012, inspiration came as J.C.S. decided to write her first romance novel. Even though it was a completed work, she saw that it wasn't yielding light on her talent. After doing a little research on the Archangel of Death and the Greek Goddess of War, Enyo, the makings of an Epic Fantasy trilogy had just begun.


    Taking her work to Authonomy and trying out the first two books, J.C.S. realized that sticking with something she loved, Epic Fantasy, did her better than trying to fit in.


    In 2013 J.C.S. wrote and published the first book to Bleeding Stars and Paper Hearts: Adrianna is Mine, following the same previewing and publishing path of her previous work. The audience from Authonomy helped her decide on publishing when not only had her book gone from #599 to #31 in a week, it stayed at #7 for three weeks and #1 for two.

    Graphic Policy Radio: Politics and Comics of the Multiverses

    in Pop Culture

    It's Monday night and that means a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio! We're back talking comics. There's been a lot of brand new comics debuting over the past few weeks, and some very high-profile ones at that. We'll be discussing....



    Angela: Asgard's Assassin - The character debuted in Spawn, but now is over at Marvel. After a stint in Guardians of the Galaxy, the character headlines her own series.
    Bitch Planet - The most talked about comic of the past week. This comic shows how you can take on social and political issues within an entertaining story.
    Deathlok - The classic character who was an integral part of last season's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets its own series.
    Secret Six - We loved the pre-New 52 version of the series, but how does this new team and relaunch stack up?
    and more!


    So join us this Monday and let us know your thoughts about these new series! You can call in or Tweet us your thoughts @graphicpolicy

    Graphic Policy Radio Talks Constantine with Guest Scott Kaufman this Monday Live

    in Pop Culture

    After a few weeks off this Monday Graphic Policy Radio is back for a brand new episode on Monday November 24. The show will air LIVE at 10pm ET. We have a very special episode with return guest Scott Kaufman, who you might know as SEK.


    We’re many weeks into the new fall television season. One of the new trends is television shows based on comic book series with a half dozen airing in the 2014-2015 season, many of those based on DC Comics comic books. One of those is Constantine which airs Fridays on NBC. Based on the Vertigo series Hellblazer and the New 52 series Constantine, the show follows the mast of the dark arts John Constantine. We’ll discuss the series (and we’re sure much more).


    Scott is the proprietor of the AV Club’s Internet Film School and an associate editor at The Raw Story. He also writes for Lawyers, Guns & Money, podcasts, and is an expert on Game of Thrones.


    So listen in LIVE, and join the conversation too. We want to hear what you have to say, so call us at (619) 768-2952 or Tweet us your thoughts to @graphicpolicy.
