“You’re married? Like to a woman?”
“You sound surprised.”
“Sorry, I saw the skin-tight, blue power suit and just assumed.”
Stardust couldn’t imagine what she meant.
Today marks the release of Cobalt City Double Feature, a full-length book featuring two superhero-themed novellas–”The Place Between,” by the ever-so-talented Minerva Zimmerman, and the other, “Eye for an Eye,” by yours truly. Here’s some linkage, for buying it direct from Timid Pirate (the best deal, as you get the Kindle, Nook, and PDF all in one go: http://www.timidpirate.com/books-booty/cobalt-city-double-features/)
Also check out a stellar review from the wonderful Jaleigh Johnson, author of Mistshore, Unbroken Chain, and other feats of fantastic literariness: http://allwritesreserved.wordpress.com/2012/07/09/cobalt-city-double-feature-eye-for-an-eye/
I’m planning to talk more about the novella later as part of an actual interview (which may or may not be done in Stardust’s outstanding dulcet tones), but for now I’ll say this:
Vivienne Cain a.k.a. Lady Vengeance a.k.a. Queen of Fear and Taking No Sh*t from Nobody tends to find herself in the middle of acres of crazy whenever she shows up in print. “Vengeance on the Layover” saw her stomping a misogynist jerk of a mad scientist, even while jetlagged and drunk, and this time the stakes are higher, what with her old friend/partner/lover/ultimate nemesis The Raven after her. Oh, and power drainer and the seeping gut wound. And when Jaccob Stevens a.k.a. Stardust a.k.a. The Shining Hero in Electric Blue Hotpants (literally) comes to save the day, will he prove her ally or an even worse enemy?
Crazy will be done. Property will be massively damaged. People will be hit with buildings. Love will be tested against hate. Whiskey will be swigged by the gallon. And in the end, the world might just be saved. Or doomed. Either way, really.
Hope you enjoy, and hit me up with some comments/reactions!
