7 Favorite Book Aesthetics

I’ve become a little obsessed with book aesthetics.

You may have noticed this already if you follow me on Twitter, where I’m all over #ThursdayAesthetic every week. If you’ve never checked out that hashtag, you really should. It’s full of gorgeous imagery, and I’m blown away by the talent of the author community. Every week, one of the hosts announces a theme, and writers create an aesthetic based on it for their books.

I’m not that good at it, but I don’t let that stop me. 😉 Practice makes perfect, and I like to think I get better every week. Either way, I have a lot of fun, and I want to share some of my favorites that I’ve made so far. Continue reading 7 Favorite Book Aesthetics

You’ve probably read Kill Them All by now. (And if you haven’t, then you should get on that.) As you’re waiting for Superhuman Disaster to come out and that cliffhanger to be resolved, here are some of the coolest-looking new superhero novels to keep you occupied.

As usual, I haven’t read all of these books personally, so check out the reviews and samples before buying. And happy reading!

Explosive Arsenal (Full Metal Superhero Book 6)

by Jeffery H. Haskell

Explosive Arsenal Cover

Aliens, megalomaniacs, and power-mad mages, Amelia should be so lucky. Luke is gone, stolen by the mysterious red gem. With no way to track him, she must stand up to the other threats she faces. Someone out there has her tech, and they used it to outfit a group of cold-blooded mercs that tried to kill her. Then there’s Tempus. A new threat which appears to be able to travel through time. Amelia won’t go down easy, however. The Full Metal Superhero always has a trick up her sleeve. Is this one threat too many for our armored heroine?

Updates on The White Knight & Black Valentine Series

First off, a big thank you to everybody who’s read Kill Them All so far and helped make the book launch a success. You guys are the best! ❤

Thank you gif

Second, I’ve been hustling to promote the book, so ICYMI, here are a few guest posts I’ve done around the web:

Those are both great book blogs, BTW, so you should look around after finishing my articles. 😉

Finally, I’ve got the update on Book 5 you’ve probably been waiting for if you’ve finished Kill Them All. Continue reading Updates on The White Knight & Black Valentine Series

10 Female Supervillains (who are Cooler than most Heroes)

Superheroines can be powerful role models for girls. They show that women can be brave, smart, and control their own stories, which is an excellent lesson for both girls and boys. I can only imagine the impact movies like Wonder Woman and comics like Ms. Marvel and Moon Girl have on kids. Superheroes have always been beacons of hope, symbols of what humanity could achieve if we strove to be better. Though they may be fictional, superheroes can truly change the world.

But supervillains have more fun.

So if you’re in the mood for destroying the world rather than saving it, here are ten of my favorite female supervillains—and let me tell you, it was hard to narrow the list down to just ten. These ladies are powerful, brilliant and terrifying, and while they’d probably murder us in real life without a second thought, they’re super fun to read about. Continue reading 10 Female Supervillains (who are Cooler than most Heroes)

Kill Them All is Live!

Today’s the day! Kill Them All, the fourth and penultimate book in The White Knight and Black Valentine Series, has been released into the world.

If you enjoy:

  • villain protagonists
  • roaring rampages of revenge
  • fierce and classy older heroines
  • strong mother/daughter relationships
  • action scenes with a frenzy of superpowers

Then you’ll probably like this book. To the readers who’ve been with this series for a while, I hope you like the new places I take the story and don’t hate me too much for the torment I heap upon your favorite characters. 😉 New readers, I design every book to be new reader-friendly, so give Kill Them All a try or check out the other books in the series first.

And thank you all for your support! I never would have made it to Book 4 without you. Continue reading Kill Them All is Live!

New Superhero Fiction (August 2018)

What time is it? Time to showcase some awesome new books from the superhero genre! I think the cover art this month is particularly great. I love the smirk on the woman’s face on the front of Red and Black, and the art for Modified has always been fantastic. (And it’s a boxed set now! No need to suffer through the cruel cliffhangers as you wait for the next episode.) Plus, how cool is that armor on the cover of Hero Hunter?

As usual, I haven’t read all of these books personally, so check out the samples and reviews before you hit the buy button. And happy reading!

Book Quotes from Superhero Fiction

Your average novel is around 70,000 words, and while I love every single one of them in favorite books, there’s no denying that some phrases are more quotable than others. A good quote makes you laugh or makes you think, and here are some of my favorites from the books in Heroes & Villains: A Superhero Collection (along with a reminder that time is running out to download the boxed set):
