Calling All Freaks

Many books don’t come with a soundtrack, unless they’re eventually made into a movie. With my new book, The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth, there’s most definitely a theme song. It doesn’t have to be your theme song. That’s the best part about being a freak, a weirdo, a misfit, a world dominator. Show More Summary
