The Queen of All Deals

– Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist and Craigconnects

“It seems an odd mix of steampunk, supernatural mystery, and intellectual property thriller, but I like it.”
– Black Gate

The Dragons of Heavenly Prices!

The Dragons Of Heaven by Alyc Helms“Dragons of Heaven combines superheroes, romance, ancient mythological China, and does it right.”
– Cassie Alexander, author of the Edie Spence series

“All the fun of pulp adventure, filtered through a twenty-first century lens. Helms isn’t content simply to play in the genre; she questions it, complicates it, adds layers it didn’t have eighty years ago. Missy’s journey to become Mr. Mystic isn’t the usual heroic training montage – but it’s a hell of a lot of fun.”
