Sorceress Super Hero

by Darius Brasher

Sorceress superhero

The mess all started when I punched a 400-year-old fairy reality TV star in the throat.

Things got really weird from there.

Before I could blink, I was fighting wererats, getting kidnapped by superheroes, stealing a cape inhabited by the ghost of a magical genius, and trying to save the world alongside a 2,000-year-old immortal who wields a piece of Noah’s Ark. All while struggling to not get evicted or fired from my job.

That was just Monday. Tuesday is shaping up to be busier. Continue reading New Superhero Fiction (July 2018)

Power: Arca Book 3

by Karen Diem

Power Cover

After successfully rescuing her brother from a serial killer and stopping a plot to use a magic butter knife to massacre thousands, Zita Garcia is ready for a return to her regular life: illegally climbing skyscrapers, hiding her superpowers, and grudgingly earning a paycheck to cover all those bills piling up.

Unfortunately, her least favorite supervillains are rampaging around in a bloody crime spree, outmaneuvering and outgunning the authorities. Enlisting her friends to help, even the one sulking in his dad’s basement, she’s got to stop the bad guys and their latest evil plan before anyone else dies. Even if Zita isn’t sure what they’re doing, other than it involves Brazil.

And maybe dinosaurs. Continue reading New Superhero Fiction Releases (May 2018)

A book by my sister.

Shadow Dreams

by Trish Heinrich

Shadow Dreams Cover

He fights crime. She was born into it. When the city’s in danger, superheroes can come from both sides of the law.

Before Marco returned to Jet City, he had abandoned his superhero duties to search for an antidote for his friend’s uncontrollable fits of rage. When the only man who knows the cure dies in his arms, Marco must puzzle his dying words alone in a crime-ridden metropolis. Without any solid clues, he has no choice but to trust a sexy stranger who offers her help… for a price.

The granddaughter of a crime-lord, Colleen would burn down the city to find her missing brother. She’d even work as a secretary for Shadow Master, the legendary crime fighter. As she pieces together clues of her brother’s whereabouts, Colleen and Marco uncover a top-secret program that would change the lives of a new generation of superhumans.

When old allegiances threaten to tear them apart, Marcus and Colleen must summon the courage to forge a new future before all their superpowered friends are locked away for good.

Shadow Dreams is the third book in The Vigilantes, a high-octane urban fantasy superhero series. If you like fast-paced action, pulse-pounding mysteries, and Cold War era settings, then you’ll love Trish Heinrich’s superpowered tale.

I, Superhero

by David Atchison

I, Superhero CvoerNo one said the job would be easy. But after his latest brush with death, aging superhero and father of two Ernest Smith is confronted with an entirely new foe – retirement.

However, plans to hand over superhero duties backfire in spectacular fashion, leaving a desperate Ernest with only one person to whom he can turn: his headstrong teenage son. And as the duo lock wits with the city’s newest criminal mastermind, Ernest’s very survival relies on his ability to pass on something more important than a mere superpower.

This debut novel (and first in a series) from Iowa Writers Workshop alum David Atchison is an action-adventure featuring love, friendship, sacrifice, and heroic deeds pitted against criminal masterminds, awkward job interviews, and perhaps worst of all, grumpy teenagers.

You should give it a read today. Unless, that is, you’ve been sent here at the behest of the Legion of Darkness, and ignoring this book is part of your master plan to dominate the universe. Continue reading New Superhero Fiction Releases (March 2018)

Clockmaker is Live!

Grab your steampunk goggles and get ready to board the airship Sultana, everybody. Clockmaker is now available on Amazon.com. Go download a copy for your Kindle or Kindle App.

I first announced this book a few months ago and have been talking about it and posting excerpts on Twitter, so I’m happy to finally be able to share it with all of you. I hope those of you who read The Ghost Machine will like Captain Melek’s solo adventure. But this is a spinoff, not a sequel, so you can still read and understand the story if you never read The Ghost Machine. If the cover and blurb intrigue you, I hope you’ll give it a try.

Clockmaker Cover

The crew of the airship Sultana is nearly destitute. No one knows this better than its captain, Melek, who’s almost desperate enough to sell her treasured family heirlooms to pay her crew’s wages. Then a reclusive gentleman wearing a golden mask offers a fortune to transport him and a mysterious cargo to Istanbul. Needing the money, Melek can’t bring herself to refuse, even when her instincts warn of trouble.

Now strange noises haunt her airship at night, and deadly warships stalk the Sultana through dark, stormy skies. Melek’s masked passenger refuses to explain his private affairs, and she enjoys arguing with him perhaps a little too much. But he’s even more dangerous than she suspected, and she’ll have to unravel the dark intrigue he’s brought aboard her ship before it kills them all.

If you like gothic thrills and swashbuckling adventure, then you won’t want to miss this exciting steampunk novel. Download Clockmaker now and take to the skies!
