My Bookish Ways
“I want more Greg Salem. I want to find out about a few of the other mysteries in his life and I definitely want to see his Los Angeles again. I especially want to see him kick ass on stage a few more times. I’m absolutely psyched to see what Lauden has next.” — Angel Colon
Out of the Gutter

Crime Syndicate Magazine
“BCC is one hell of a debut from a promising author in a series that will almost certainly solicit legions of followers, just like Greg Salem’s band, Bad Citizen Corporation.” — Michael Pool
“It is so rare that you find an author so young who is able to control all these twists and turns in a story and keep the novel from crashing. Lauden excells. The man is one to watch.”
