Drum roll, please.
The Best Man, a short story prequel to Hero Status, will be released on March 31st. If you’ve ever been curious about Dave and Val’s wedding and whether they made it through the day without a supervillain attack (Hint: they did not.), then this is the book for you. Plus, Lady Nightmare has a big role, so if you read How Lady Nightmare Stole Captain Alpha’s Girlfriend and want more of her, this is a good place to start.
Check out the cover and blurb below.
Harris Holt has one job: to make sure his best friend’s wedding goes smoothly. But when his friend is a retired superhero marrying a former villainess, that involves more than just remembering the rings and making a good speech at the reception. Especially when a guy with a gun turns up at the wedding venue.
Now Harris has to keep a supervillain with a grudge from offing the bride and groom—and keep it quiet, or else the cops will crash the ceremony. With his own rusty superpowers and a murderous maid of honor for help, Harris needs to stop the bad guy before the happy couple gets cold feet…on their corpses.
The Best Man will be available on Amazon Kindle March 31st. Follow my blog by email for a reminder on release day!
If you’re interested in hearing me gush about gothic romance and explain the inspirations behind Ghost Machine, I’ve got a guest post up at The Silver Petticoat Review about just that. Check it out here.
Also, in case you missed it, Hero Status won the shiny 2016 standout award you see below from One Book Two Reviews. They’ve got a great review of the novel on their site.
So 2016 is almost over, and I haven’t put out a single new book all year. (Thank you, incredibly stressful and busy new job.) Although I haven’t had much time to write, I do have a book I wrote before Hero Status that has been sitting alone and unread on my harddrive.
Say hello to Ghost Machine:
It’s not too late for new year’s resolutions, right? Right.
In 2015, I released Villainous, and wow, that book gave me a lot of trouble. In 2016, I’m planning to be more ambitious.
In the first half of the year, I’m going to start releasing Fight Crime! (A Love Story), a serialized prequel to The White Knight and Black Valentine series that will update twice a week on this website. You may have caught a sneak peak of this at the end of Villainous.
Then, in the second half of the year, I’ll come out with Almost Invincible, book three in the series, which will take us back to Dave’s POV.
So yeah! This is double my output compared to the past two years, and I’m definitely not posting my plan publicly to prevent me from going back on it at a later date. 😉 You’ll get two projects from me this year. No take-backs!
