The granddaughter of a powerful organized crime boss, Tracy Queen was raised as her grandfather’s secret weapon—a deadly enforcer with a brilliant scientific mind and a sex appeal very few could say no to. Then Tracy befriends Nikola, a supergenius who happens to be a raccoon. He helps her escape her grandfather’s crime syndicate and build a new life as an indie porn star. But Tracy’s rise puts her in direct conflict with the porn establishment, even as her criminal past resurfaces. Tracy and Nikola race against time to build a cyborg clone army to defend feminist sex-positive porn against the soulless machine of the Porn Industrial Complex, and Tracy must draw on all her skills in the lab, on the battlefield, and in the bedroom to preserve the life she’s built.

Brooklyn is a place where corruption runs deep, and the only way to stay safe is to assume everyone is on the take. On these lawless streets, a pack of six stray dogs—and one stray man—protect the innocent. Patience and his dogs of virtue prowl the darkest alleys of the Brooklyn night, enforcing their own brutal justice as they put crime under the fang. In these dark times, the line between hero and villain is blurred, but to the PACK it’s simple: theirs is the only acceptable violence, and their retribution is as swift as it is fierce. Still, their vigilantism draws attention from all the wrong places, and one cop must try to draw a line between right and wrong before it’s too late.

Rendaraia is a realm where nature, magic, and civilization have long lived in harmony. Into this peaceful coexistence comes a brutal and mysterious invaders from a land called Terra, an imperial society driven by its own rapacious needs and the demands of its politically divided home. As war rages, hundreds of cultures of wildly varying technologies, traditions, and species fight to preserve their way of life. But Rendaraia and Terra are linked more deeply than anyone had ever imagined.
Children of Gaia is a vast universe, and the setting for an epic and ongoing story being told across multiple media. Here are the first two of many COG projects we’re currently working on …
The five Great Nations of Rendaraia have stood for centuries as strongholds of culture, magic, science, and military strength. When, one by one, the Nations mysteriously fall—each destroyed in a day, with no time for word or warning—the intrepid scholar Jan’Ka’Zian sets out to record a complex network of intertwined cultures on the edge of destruction. Jayel Draco’s gorgeous illustrations present a vivid picture of elaborate cityscapes and mountain vistas, vast skyfaring fleets, and fantastic flora and fauna.

Deep in the dustbowl of the newly formed People’s Republic of Draven, an overthrown aristocracy coexists with the country’s new government in an uneasy peace that’s often broken by conflict. In the midst of the upheaval, famine and drought wrack the once-fertile breadbasket—and violence is a spark to dry grass. In the midst of the chaos walks a shadowy figure: the Triggerman. The only sure thing about him is that he leaves a trail of chaos in his wake. Following that trail is novelist and journalist Landon Ford, documenting the Triggerman’s exploits and digging for the truth of his identity. War and Horses is Ford’s work: a series of dime-store novels, popular in Rendaraia and Terra alike. But the Triggerman is very real—and his true purpose may become the story of Ford’s life.
