Got invited onto a talk to to talk about my books, writing for YA, the comic con culture, and seeing characters you created cosplayed for the first time. This was an awesome day. (So glad I wore a slimming shirt on camera.) I'm the first segment in the episode. Check it out! (I'm kinda proud.)

I'm an ex-journalist. I'm always tied into the news. Constant barrage of information. All day, all the time. But today I was at a Boston Comic Con to promote my superhero books and cut off and the world went crazy with hate and anger and I feel guilty for having a good day when so many others spent a day afraid and angry...

Like superheroes, like holiday stories? I just talked with my publisher and we're making both of the Indestructibles holiday stories free for Christmas Eve. Check out the classic holiday story "Gifted" here, or get some holiday horror as superheroes face off against Krampus in "Krampus in the City" here.

Happy holidays!

In celebration of the start of my convention season, I'm giving away the 25-page "one-shot" story "The Monsters We Make" on Amazon... just til midnight Pacific tonight.

If you're an Indestructibles reader and would like to find out more about Alley Hawk's mysterious past, this is the book for you!

The new book is out. Like a Comet. Book 4. Amazon, Barnes and Noble, all the usual places. More teen superhero adventures, this time with more outer space.

Also my favorite cover in the series so far.

So the conversation went a little like this with one of my fellow novelists:
Him: Hey it's National Superhero Day!

Me: (This picture)

Him: You just... had that lying around, didn't you. Didn't even have to go looking for it. Just had it in case you needed to be Spider-Man. In an emergency.

Me: YUP!

The Indestructibles is discounted 70% for the rest of the day (Kindle only). I mean, who doesn't like a story about a solar-powered girl and a werewolf with confidence issues?

... I start writing the next book project when I get distractingly lonely. I suppose it's an interesting problem to have. Best hope I don't get too happy for fear I'll ruin my career.

But man, I get lonely and start listening to Irish folk songs and the Civil Wars covering You Are My Sunshine and look out, words start flowing.

My publisher just let me know that my first novel, the Indestructibles, is having a huge sale the next two weeks, only $2.99 instead of the usual $9.99 for the e-book.

I discovered your series through a post in the Writers Group and then came here and found this blog. Which led me to purchase all of the books about two hours ago, I just finished the first one and wanted to say that it is awesome. Thank you for writing it.

@daiv42 - thanks for checking them out (and especially for letting me know you were reading them). I'm having a blast writing them, so I'm psyched whenever I hear someone actualy enjoys reading them. Really appreciate the encouragement!
