    eBook (, May 28, 2020)
    The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. All I meant to do was free the witches enthralled by an incubus, but instead, I unleashed Armageddon. Amy, the Spawn of Darkness, is now free of the restraints the demon lord Metraxion placed on her and she’s turning Hellburn into her own private Hell while she waits for her father, the Dread Lord, to come for her and bring her back home. We’re waiting for Him too, frankly. At least this nightmare would be over.Throughout the centuries, witches and warlocks have dedicated their lives to protecting the rest of us mortals from demons. They work in secret to keep the existence of magic hidden from the general population, but there’s no way to pretend that Amy is anything but what she is: a soulless, psychopathic, vindictive demon girl with wings. There’s probably a proper name for whatever she is, but Evil Incarnate sums it up pretty well.I live with a witch, a succubus, and a ghost. I have magical powers copied from my favorite online game. I have a Philosopher’s Stone that reincarnates me whenever I’m killed, which is fairly often these days. There has to be something I can do to fix this disaster before everyone I know dies a horrible death, or worse. I only wish I knew what that was.

    eBook (Zola Books, Sept. 22, 2015)
    Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers is a young adult novel about seventeen-year-old Richie Perry, a Harlem teenager who volunteers for the Army when unable to afford college and is sent to fight in the Vietnam War. Perry and his platoon—Peewee, Lobel, Johnson, and Brunner—come face-to-face with the Vietcong, the harsh realities of war, and some dark truths about themselves. A thoughtful young man with a gift for writing and love of basketball, Perry learns to navigate among fellow soldiers under tremendous stress and struggles with his own fear as he sees things he’ll never forget: the filling of body bags, the deaths of civilians and soldier friends, the effects of claymore mines, the fires of Napalm, and jungle diseases like Nam Rot.Available as an e-book for the first time on the 25th anniversary of its publication, Fallen Angels has been called one of the best Vietnam War books ever and one of the great coming-of-age Vietnam War stories. Filled with unforgettable characters, not least Peewee Gates of Chicago who copes with war by relying on wisecracks and dark humor, Fallen Angels “reaches deep into the minds of soldiers” and makes “readers feel they are there, deep in the heart of war.”Fallen Angels has won numerous awards and honors, including the Coretta Scott King Award, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, a Booklist Editors Choice, and a School Library Journal Best Book. Fallen Angels was #16 on the American Library Association’s list of the most frequently challenged books of 1990–2000 for its realistic depiction of war and those who fight in wars.
