Hey world, My name is Leon Langford, I recently published a book based off of love of anime, manga, and light novels and my desire for diversity in the YA lit world

I was hoping you could help with just a simple reblog.

Streetslam Volume One is on sale on Amazon Kindle for 0.99.

http://ift.tt/1NdOLy2

You can also download the !free!Amazon Kindle App to MAC, PC, and Smartphone to read the novel, if you do not have a kindle.Summary: After the death of his mother, Devin Maxwell joins Titan Force, an organization that collects supernatural artifacts using super powered agents. Devin quickly rises to become a brash, yet successful agent under the field name: Streetslam. He forms a pseudo family with his friends and fellow agents at Titan Force. Devin’s allegiances are put to the test after an enigmatic billionaire offers him the chance to revive his mother, but only if he turns on his new family and steals a mysterious item from the Titan Force vault.

Featuring:-A black main lead with superpowers. -Anime style battles.-Characters dealing with depression, poverty, abuse, and recovery. -A diverse and robust cast, featuring strong black women, strong hispanic women, and a trio of super powered sisters. -Anime tropes such as BIG ASS swords, long evolving story arcs, a military organization that has no problem hiring teenagers, and even a character with animal ears.   Thanks for all the support!

This sounds awesome…

Thanks for the reblogs @etheralhobbies I sold 9 copies today!

I’ve had Once Upon a Time going as background noise for a while. 

1. This is built like a ‘casual watching’ showing, but it is absolutely impossible to follow unless you are paying rapt attention and taking notes.

2. it is not even remotely necessary to actually follow the show. It feels like every time I look up, one character or another has changed sides, or there’s a “But wait!” moment. As long as you just go with the flow, it’s a fun ride.

For the 52 entry, I’m doing a take on Cinderella as a collab with an artist, but I do really love a lot of the fairy tales you’ve guys have sent along! I think I might do a few others as well.

I enjoyed The Canary Prince - kind of a reversal of the typical prince charming to have a princess charming to the rescue. ;) Reminds me a little of my all-time favorite children’s story/fairy tale, The Paperbag Princess. I quite like this one.

The Princess that Never Smiled was interesting. I find it fascinating how many of these fairytales transform an ordinary person into someone physically beautiful by whatever act they’ve accomplished to win the prince/princess’ favor.

Is this the Fair Brown you mention?

The She-Bear is very similar to another story that was suggested, though I can’t find the name right now. I read a version of this as a child called Princess Furball (though the king was having her marry an ogre, not himself *shudder*)

The Steadfast Tin Soldier started out as a ‘toys come to life and have adventures’ story, but wow, what a sad ending. Why do so many fairytales not just end horribly/sadly but for no reason - what was the point?? :(

Ah!! Thank you!! :D I’m so happy that people seem to enjoy it. I’ve plotted out the rest of it and it’s looking like 7-8 chapters in total. :)

I was the one who suggested Princess Furball. I know it by Allerleirauh, but it has a bunch of other names as well.

I thought it was you! I just couldn’t find it. >.<

The whole thing is a train wreck at this point. It’s a whole train yard of wrecks.

I feel like it always was?? Maybe not the first handful of episodes, but I was on the trainwreck train before the end of season one.

I have a few shows that I just run as background noise while I’m doing Other Things. It needs to meet two criteria for that:

1. I don’t like it enough that I’m going to be distracted from the Other Things by wanting to pay attention to the show.

2. I don’t hate it so much that I’m going to be distracted the Other Things by being angry at the show. 

Once Upon Time serves that purpose pretty well for me.
