Sins Of The Fathers: A Super Collection Of Superhero Stories

It is a pleasure to report that my short novel A Boy Named Evil, Ultrahumans has been collected into the Sins Of The Fathers Bundle.

 

Time passes. Teenage sidekicks grow up. Heroes and villains settle down and start families.

The bundle is themed around the next generation of kids taking over the family superhero/villain business. Stories about people in masks and how they interact with the youngsters coming along, rather than just inter-generational family drama. Superheroes make everything crazier.

Does the hero retire gracefully and let the teen sidekick take over the name and costume? Did the children of a supervillain join the family business, or become heroes and work to thwart their own parental units?

What happens, when ties of family intersect and tangle with ties of crime-fighting?

Sins of The Fathers

Advance Reader Opportunity

Part of my work style is to toil away in private until I have something to offer. This time, I come with a chance to receive my first “superhero” novel ‘A Boy Named Evil’ before it’s available anywhere! The book is done and scheduled to go live on November 20th.

I am looking for readers to join my Edge Advantage reading group. In exchange for the free book, I am hoping that you will leave an honest review wherever you buy/review books (by December 1st). The review is not a requirement, but would be greatly appreciated.

Because I’m forming this special group, you’ll be required to enter your email address again. I apologize for this, but I’m looking to reward those who enjoy the stories I tell.

All right. Enough of that. Here’s the link, and here’s the cover! (Back cover text below.)

Being immortal, Jamal always has trouble keeping friends. Most times it seems like he just gets to know someone when then hit their expiration date. They shuffle off to whatever is after life, leaving him scratching his head.

Only this time, after being buried, his friend Newt–a non-binary skeleton–rose from the dead with a problem. A former lover and necromancer had stolen Newt’s heart from his grave.
