About I'm a Gay Wizard in the City of the Nightmare King:
In the sequel to I'm a Gay Wizard, V.S. Santoni imagines a world where Johnny, Hunter, Alison, and Blake are forced once again to prove that love and magic can save the day.
When Johnny wakes up, something isn't right. It's a blissful summer day, and Johnny's father is taking him to begin a brand new life in Misthaven, and all his best friends, Alison, Hunter, and Blake, join him in the idyllic town.
Once reunited, Johnny and his friends discover that this Misthaven is actually Dreamhaven--the Marduk Institute's mystical prison for wizards--and they're trapped. But that's the least of their problems when Hunter falls ill with a magical sickness, and his soul is thrown into the Night City, an underworld ruled by the Nightmare King.
Johnny will not leave Hunter. Vowing to stay together, he, Alison, and Blake enter the Night City, a domain of the dead where both their powers and trust in each other will be tested. But in a realm where the Nightmare King rules second only to Death itself, Johnny's love for Hunter must continue to be his most powerful magic.

About the Youth Empowerment Program:
YEP is a peer-to-peer program that teaches youth how to identify local issues they care about, and methods they can use to positively affect change in their communities. With an intergenerational community of youth and mentors, high school aged youth will develop leadership skills, foster justice-focused movements in their communities, and learn to advocate for change at the local, state and national levels, while maintaining inclusive and affirming environments.
Through an intersectional lens, YEP directly addresses some of the biggest challenges to teen social and sexual health — a lack of accurate and approachable information and trustworthy sources for help and guidance.
None of them expected the nightmare to continue . . .
