Promo - Nocturnal
Something lives deep beneath the streets of San Francsico. Something that has been there for centuries, something that comes out at night ... to feed on the dregs of society. A sub-culture, with its own myths, its own legends of leader named The King that will lead them out of bondage, and their own demon, a hunting shadow known only as Savior. Read the book or listen on iTunes.
Promo - Christiana's Shallow Thoughts
Christiana Ellis' surreal, daily thoughts on many subjects. Humourous, surreal and highly entertaining these small podcasts are a worthy addition to your podcast playlists. Listen to the, now sadly pod-faded, Christiana's Shallow Thoughts.
