If you’re into caped crusaders and supervillains, you might want to check out a recently-released novel from indie author Paul Mundane titled The Amelia Academy: Standards.
A quote from author Paul Mundane:
“The Amelia Academy: Standards is my No Prize letter to the comic industry. It’s written for everyone, but aimed at those who survived the Iron Age of comics mostly intact. More importantly; Standards is a fun read. It hits home on several well known tropes, but stays original and true to itself. It is also the beginning of something much bigger: The Amelia Academy: Homeroom is already in production, and slotted for release early November, 2012.”
Check out the teaser synopsis below and then go check out the book on Smashwords. Standards is currently available on Smashwords for $4.99 and will eventually be making its way into other bookstores and digital distributors like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Apple. It is currently available in Kindle, Epub, and a variety of other digital formats.
Chris Stand was once Kid Standard, sidekick to the most powerful superhuman on the planet. Chris left it all behind him a decade ago, and had happily slumped into obscurity since then. Chris finds himself dragged again into the world of flights and tights, when an ex-villain offers him a teaching position at The Amelia Academy: a school for metahuman youth.
Old friends and enemies rise from Chris’ past. The line between hero and villain quickly blurs. Soon, Chris finds himself defending the academy from a plot to destroy the fledgling school before it can open its doors.
