What I’m Working On

Writing takes time. That’s not a shocking revelation, and it’s not a problem, either. I love writing. It’s my craft and one of my favorite ways to spend my free time. That being said, it usually takes me half a year to finish a book, which means long spells where I have nothing to showContinue reading “What I’m Working On”

New Superhero Fiction of 2019 (Part 2)

Hey, super-readers. It’s been a while since I’ve posted a new superhero fiction roundup, so here’s a giant mega-post with twelve thirteen new books! I’m tempted to call it “New Supervillain Fiction,” since the villains almost outnumber the heroes. But I love a compelling, complex supervillain, so bring on the bad guys. As usual, IContinue reading “New Superhero Fiction of 2019 (Part 2)”

Older Characters in Superhero Media

Readers of The White Knight & Black Valentine Series sometimes ask me why I chose to make my heroes “older.” The superhero genre doesn’t have an age limit: it includes heroes from children to seniors. Just look at the Power Pack or the Justice Society of America. Like most media, though, I’d say it skewsContinue reading “Older Characters in Superhero Media”

How to Write a Series of Superhero Fiction

I’ve made some mistakes. I’ve also written some pretty good stuff, in my totally-not-biased opinion. If nothing else, now that I’ve finished The White Knight & Black Valentine Series and am the author of five superhero novels, I’ve learned a lot. And, like the veteran superhero imparting her knowledge to her young sidekick, I’m hereContinue reading “How to Write a Series of Superhero Fiction”

Book Spotlight: The Vigilantes: Books 1 – 3 by Trish Heinrich

I forgot if I’ve raved about Serpent’s Sacrifice, the first book in the Vigilantes Series by Trish Heinrich, on this site before. (I really ought to write a proper review of it at some point.) If you bought the Heroes & Villains boxed set that Hero Status was a part of over the summer, itContinue reading “Book Spotlight: The Vigilantes: Books 1 – 3 by Trish Heinrich”

Cover Reveal: Superhuman Disaster

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates! You’ve probably noticed it’s been pretty quiet around here lately. That’s because I’ve been spending every spare minute trying to finish Superhuman Disaster. I’m still hoping to get it out in December, in which case it’ll release on the 31st, but I may not make it. If that happens,Continue reading “Cover Reveal: Superhuman Disaster”
