andlt;bandgt;DOING HOMEWORK BECOMES A THING OF THE PASTandlt;/bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; The unlikely foursome made up of a geek, a class clown, a teacher's pet, and a slacker — Brenton, Sam "Snick,", Judy and Kelsey, respectively, — are bound together by one very big secret: the homework machine. Because the machine, code named Belch, is doing their homework for them, they start spending a lot of time together, attracting a lot of attention. And attention is exactly what you don't want when you are keeping a secret. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Before long, members of the D Squad, as they are called at school are getting strange Instant Messages from a shady guy named Milner; their teacher, Miss Rasmussen, is calling private meetings with each of them and giving them pop tests that they are failing; and someone has leaked the possibility of a homework machine to the school newspaper. Just when the D Squad thinks things can't get any more out of control, Belch becomes much more powerful than they ever imagined. Soon the kids are in a race against their own creation, and the loser could end up in jail...or worse!

Synopsis:

Ben has been an underdog his whole life. But when he meets Merlin—the Merlin—the wizard delivers devastating news: a vicious band of aliens are approaching, and Ben could be the champion Earth desperately needs. 

Soon Ben joins the Round Table Reboot, where legendary heroes are training a new generation to battle the deadly threat. They have a secret weapon: X-Calibur. But this time X-Calibur is not a sword — it's a spaceship — and only the right kid can awaken its powers.  All Ben has ever wanted is to be a hero…but is it in the stars for him?

 
 

Synopsis:

Four kids share a secret--a homework machine. Everything is great for a while, but soon the machine becomes more powerful than they ever imagined, and even its inventor is powerless to stop it.

About the Author

Greg Pace has been a lifelong creativity junkie. From drawing and putting together models of classic movie monsters, to playing guitar in an Atlanta based heavy metal band , to performing stand-up comedy throughout Los Angeles and selling movie scripts to Hollywood, Greg's life has often been his very own action adventure. But it's his love of horror, sci-fi, and his number one passion — writing — that makes this first book so satisfying and exciting for him. Greg currently lives in Los Angeles.
