I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be releasing my first novel next week, entitled The Last Superhero. Technically this story would probably fit into the Young Adult Fiction category, but I’m really hoping that adults will enjoy it as well. Here’s how I would describe it.
It’s the story of a superhero family, the Wagners, who have always protected the city of Coreopolis. The grandpa, John Utticus Wagner, is revered in the superhero community. He’s consistently invited to speak at superhero symposiums, has dined with the President, and has a sterling reputation as a model superhero. Unfortunately, John’s son, Orville Wagner, is not the man his father is. He’s a terrible klutz who always manages to create disasters, like derailing subway trains and accidentally injuring innocent bystanders. Orville is mocked in the superhero community, and the family’s once sterling reputation is tarnished. They no longer are seen as the protectors of Coreopolis.
When a new super villian starts terrorizing Coreopolis, it’s up to John, Orville, and Orville’s son, John II, to stop the villain and restore the family’s honor. The question is, can an old man, a klutz, and boy stop a maniacal super villain?
Here’s where I need your help. I’m looking for ten adult readers and ten young adult readers (18 or under) who would be willing to read my book this week (don’t worry, it’s short), and post a review on Amazon when I release it next week.
Just a note to parents, because this is a superhero story, it does contain some violence (nothing graphic), and I do use the word “crap” once or twice.
So here’s how this is going to work. Simply leave a comment saying whether you are an adult or young adult. I’ll select the first twenty who sign up. If you have a Kindle I’ll email you a Kindle version of the book. Otherwise I’ll email you a PDF. Sound good?
Thanks for your help!
