Digital Book Tour: WM Akers on Westside Saints, detective novels, RPGs, and sequels

This week we're joined by WM Akers to promote his new novel, Westside Saints ( 

Bee and WM talk Westside Saints (and its predecessor, Westside), an alternate history detective novel about a woman who solves "tiny mysteries" until they get much bigger. They also talk about how tabletop RPG design reflects and influences novel writing, the uprising in Philadelphia (Lakay Nou has since been renamed Camp JTD and is still regularly facing evictions), the scope of sequels, and more.
