    TARA QUAN, Author of OPERATION OWL

    in Books

    I've always loved reading romances.  No matter how many well-intended teachers tried to interest me in the classics, I poured my allowance into collecting every book with Judith McNaught's name on it.  My first foray into writing for pleasure was Harry Potter fan fiction (remnants of which are still on fanfiction.net, where my teenage alter ego RomanticFool still dwells).


    Globetrotter, lover of languages, and romance author, Tara Quan has an addiction for crafting tales with a pinch of spice and a smidgen of kink. Inspired by her travels, Tara enjoys tossing her kick-ass heroines and alpha males into exotic contemporary locales, paranormal worlds, and post-apocalyptic futures. Armed with magical powers or conventional weapons, her characters are guaranteed a suspenseful and sensual ride, as well as their own happily ever after. 


    Talk to you soon!

    Xander's style ranges from the beautifully melodic to the jaw-droppingly insane. His playing encompasses much of what he has learned and absorbed from other players over the years; artists like Shawn Lane, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Vinnie Moore, Jason Becker, Neal Schon, Michael Romeo and John Sykes. One constant in his music is a focus on strong guitar melodies. On February 29, 2012, Xander released his full-length follow-up to his EP "Road To Guitarcadia.” The new album was mixed by CJ Snare of Firehouse.  The album is simply titled, “Guitarcadia,” and it contains 10 incredible tracks of pure guitar heaven.

    BleachBANGS/Xander Demos/Fist Of Rage

    in Music

    Xander Demos:


    I am what I like to think of as a "tasty shredder". I like to mix up scary licks with intense melodies and I am a sucker for a great hook. I am endorsed by Suhr Guitars, McNaught Guitars, V-Picks, EMG Pickups, GraphTech, Jim Dunlop, Hughes and Kettner, Scott Dixon Cases and recently I have been added to the Bogner family as well. I play in two bands and just released an EP called "Road To Guitarcadia". My full-length CD simply called "Guitarcadia" will be out sometime in 2012.


    Fist Of Rage:


    Compared to bands such as Three Days Grace, Alice in Chains, and Black Label Society, Fist of Rage was founded by guitarist/songwriter Vernon "V" Hicks and bass player, Bryan "Pudge" Daniel. Quickly becoming a local favorite, they released their first album entitled "Womb of Hypocracy" in 2008. By 2011, Fist of Rage became a driving force in the regional music scene and released their sophmore album entitled "Fear". Shortly after its release the voice of Fist of Rage took a change with a new lead vocalist, Andy Chapman. His vocals added a gritty but soulful element to the powerful riffs of Fist of Rage. This propelled F.O.R. on to headlining spots in the regional music scene including one of the biggest outdoor music festivals, ROCKLAHOMA.
