DJ Styles and I will be playing songs from sci-fi movies and tv shows. Tune in and see if you can name them, we won't tell you the title until after the song plays. Some you may have grown up with and know right away, others you may not. You may even hear something that you have not heard since you where a kid. See if you can gueese the songs and have some fun with us. We will play John Williams, MECO and Queen from movies like Star Wars, Star Trek, Twilight Zone and more. In the words of YODA, "There is no try, there is only DO or DO NOT." or as the borg would say "Resistance is Futile".
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.

This Monday Graphic Policy Radio is back for a brand new episode dedicated to Marvel's Agent Carter. The show will air LIVE at 10pm ET. Joining us is return guest Scott Kaufman, who you might know as SEK.
The winter/spring television season has begun, and debuting is Marvel's Agent Carter, filling the space until Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns. Years before Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team swore to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive, there was Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, "Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger," "Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier") who pledged the same oath but lived in a different time when women weren't recognized as being as smart or as tough as their male counterparts.
With three episodes on the air, we'll talk about what we think so far.
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.
