JOHN F. ALLEN TO CO-HOST TWO TOWERS TALK SHOW WITH R.J. SULLIVAN

TTTS FRAME

Hello everyone! I’m EXTREMELY excited to announce a NEW venture I’ll be embarking on in March 2016, called the Two Towers Talk Show! This will be a YouTube talk show featuring:

  • Comic Book reviews/commentary (primarily from me)
  • TV and movie reviews/commentary
  • Classic/old movie reviews (primarily from R.J.)
  • Author interviews
  • Guest hosts
  • AND MORE!!!

I’ll be co-hosting the show with friend and fellow author, R.J. Sullivan. Together, we will explore and discuss Pop Culture, geeky stuff, etc… While R.J. and I are often in sync with our opinions, we contrast sufficiently to make for insightful, positive and  interesting conversations.
The show will be sponsored by the Speculative Fiction Guild, shot in Indianapolis, Indiana primarily at our Two Towers Talk Show Studio, but also sometimes on location at various conferences, conventions and community events. We will also place a strong emphasis on Indie and Small Press authors from around the globe, as well as Indy region authors.
Over the holidays, I approached R.J. with the idea of creating a YouTube talk show about things we normally would spend quite a bit of time talking about anyway. Coincidentally, he had already had pretty much the same idea (Great minds think alike!).
We’re both looking to have individual video and editorial features where we discuss personal Pop Culture interests as well.
R.J. and I have had plenty conversations about the various directions the show may go, but we both agreed that things like this are best grown organically, and that’s how this show will develop.
We’re also looking forward to interacting with our viewers and readers via comments on our videos, blog posts and social media outlets. There will also be a Mail Room segment of each show where we answer on-air, a selection of email questions you send us @: twotowerstalkshow@gmail.com
Sometimes we will be broadcasting live and/or on location, where we will be taking a selection of twitter questions as well.
The show will begin airing on YouTube starting in March 2016 and has a companion blog/website and social media presence (see below).

KNIGHT RANGER POSTER ART 2Synopsis: Captain Alexandre Cornelius “Neal” Du Bois is a US Army Ranger and decorated war hero. When his unit is ambushed by supernatural hostile forces while in Afghanistan, only Neal survives. When he wakes up in a secret government facility, Neal discovers that his whole life has changed forever.

A shadowy government agent named Elijah Bishop arranges for Neal’s brain to be transplanted, without his permission, into a bio-engineered body capable of amazing feats. Armed with advanced body armor and weaponry, he becomes the epitome of the Ultra Soldier.

To protect his family and those closest to him, he must let the world and everyone he loves believe he is dead. With assistance from Dr. Avery Clarkson–the scientist responsible for his new body–Neal reluctantly utilizes his superhuman abilities to work for Bishop and his organization called G.E.N.E.S.I.S. (Global Espionage Network of Elite Supernatural Intelligence and Surveillance), in order to track down those responsible for the slaughter of his unit and keep the world safe from supernatural terrorist forces.

“An Ivory Christmas” is a part of a NEW Holiday Anthology, Gifts of the Magi!

gotm-cover-final100aToday, I can finally share the BIG news about the NEW ORIGINAL collection of holiday stories co-edited with my good friends R.J. Sullivan, E. Chris Garrison and me.

The anthology is called Gifts of the Magi: A Speculative Holiday Collection and features new tales by our friends and ourselves, most of whom have series’ in progress, and feature a story set in the world of that series. And yes, I have a new story in this collection.

Ivory Blaque has returned in a brand-new short story titled “An Ivory Christmas”, which takes place on Christmas Eve!

While out shopping for a last minute gift for Malik, Ivory stumbles upon an open case involving missing children. She must use all her abilities, along with some otherworldly help, to find the children, put an end to the monster responsible and return the children safely to their parents.

Gifts of the Magi is a first time endeavor for me, as I co-edited the anthology and also ventured into indie publishing under a new brand, in a co-partnership between R.J., Chris and me, called SFG Publishing. It’s our first attempt at supporting a local charity and all monies go to Indy Reads Books in support of  their good work.

Besides a new story by me, you’ll find a new Rebecca Burton/Blue Shaefer tale by R.J., a new story set in Chris’ Tipsy Fairy Tales / Road Ghosts world, and stories set in several of my favorite worlds, created by authors Chantal Noordeloos, David Jobe, Katina French, Debra Holland, an awesome standalone story by A.D. Roland and many more!

Copies will be sold at Indy Reads Books and are available online at Amazon print and ebook versions.

Synopsis of Codename: Knight Ranger: 
United States Army Ranger, Captain Alexandre “Neal” Du Bois and his unit were on a mission in Afghanistan to deliver top secret intel to a Director Elijah Bishop, head of a clandestine organization called G.E.N.E.S.I.S., when they were ambushed by terrorist forces. The entire unit perished, but thanks to a rare genetic X-factor in Du Bois’ DNA and highly classified technology, a new body was bio-engineered for him, from what remained of the mutilated original. Du Bois’ new body was capable of amazing feats beyond the scope of any normal human. Unable to contact his family, for fear of retaliation from his enemies, he is forced to remain deceased to them and the rest of the world. Captain Du Bois was given a new civilian identity and became an operative for G.E.N.E.S.I.S. under the codename: Knight Ranger!
