NCTE on THE USE OF GRAPHIC NOVELS & A CONVERSATION ABOUT "BANNED BOOKS WEEK"
ST. Louis University Professor Jennifer Buehler and University of Central Florida's Jeff Kaplan are our guests
Presented by The Great Books Foundation
This show is going to dive into some galaxies far far away, starting with Star Wars and the 5 new movies coming out over the next 5 years, also DCU bringing their movies until 2020,and what does marvel have up it's sleeve? Yep we will hit all we can in 45 minutes.
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.
BLACK MOON: THE MOONLIGHT TRILOGY~
The second book in the Moonlight Trilogy
Simon Howard accidently killed three people. Four months later, the nightmares won’t stop. Willa Fairfield, his girlfriend, his soul mate, wants nothing more than to help him move on. But guilt isn’t the only thing getting in Simon’s way. When unexplained earthquakes hit the small town of Twelve Acres and dozens of people go missing, the Light witches discover their most feared enemy, Archard, is still alive. Employing the twisted, dynamic magic of a legendary witch known as Bartholomew the Dark, Archard plans to exact his revenge and take control of the Powers of the Earth on the night of the black moon, a rare lunar event infamous for Dark magic. As the Light Covenant fumbles to defend against Archard’s sadistic intentions, Simon’s magic grows inexplicably more powerful—even dangerous. Willa throws all her efforts into solving the mystery of Simon’s transformation, but when the events of the past storm into the present, the couple’s future changes forever.
Ex-con Jake Bishop is several years past his second stint in prison and has completely reformed. He’s married, expecting a child, and preparing to open his own hair salon. But then an old cellmate re-enters his life begging for a favor: to help him with a burglary. Forced by his code of ethics to perform the crime, Jake’s once idyllic life quickly plunges into an abyss. Jake soon realizes that there is only one way out of this purgatory . . . and it may rupture his soul beyond repair.

Author Goran Ghafour joins me this week to talk about his book: The Statues, a socio-political work of fiction.
This is the story of a man named Pola – a man whose symbolic name is “statue of movement.” In 2022, years following the Arab Spring, which rocked the roots of dictators of the Middle East and North Africa, Pola makes plans for a revolution that will challenge the politically and ethically bankrupt systems. During his journey, Pola will be threatened, challenged, and captured. Despite these obstacles, he still strives toward his dream of making his home a better place as he struggles to lead his followers toward a revolution that will change the face of the known world. A story of politics and corruption, faith and vice, love and loss, Statues provides a look into the unseen, unheard, and untouched stories of the everyday reality of the Middle East and North Africa. Through Pola, readers will share in the experience of the intense emotional and psychological challenges, along with the hope, that is held among the Middle Eastern and North African people.

Author Kimberly McKay joins me this week to talk about her books Finding Kylie, Facing Redemption, Coming Home and more.
From Finding Kylie: What if … after laying your mother to rest, the mother who has been the only real family you’ve ever known, you discover her secretive past in a set of hidden journals? What would you do if she was the only link to the father you never knew ... a father you’ve been told was dead, but was indeed very much alive?
Twenty-five year old Chastity searches through her mother’s belongings in hopes of finding any shred of evidence that leads to her father. A man, she’d always felt was out there ... somewhere. Any glimmer of hope is dashed when she reads one tiny line scrawled across the back page of her mother’s notebook. One traumatic sentence is all it takes to unravel her life long desire in a matter of seconds.
Chastity uncovers the sordid truth, a truth that her mom, Kylie, tried to hide at all costs. This newfound information plunges Chastity into a new world of control, power, and hurt. With the help of her mother’s best friend a handsome attorney, Chastity sorts her way through her new found family ties and the costs that come with it.
Tune in Friday at 11AM EST or listen to the archive.
