I’d like to share something I nominated over at KindleScout. The book is Victor Boone Will Save Us by David Joel Stevenson, and it had me hooked from the moment I read the sample.
At the time of writing this it has 14 days left in its campaign, so you should check it out before it’s too late. Of course, you could always buy it later on, but if you nominate it and it is successful, you can snag a free copy.
So what’s it about? The blurb:
Robby does the saving, Victor takes credit.
Victor Boone is a handsome jerk who uses incredible powers to fly around in spandex and save his city’s citizens from evil doers – especially the busty ones. But he’s not a superhero.
In truth, an invisible, insecure and overweight Robby Willis has the powers, but he’s so terrified of anyone knowing he exists that he’s not comfortable with a cliché disguise. The two men form a partnership: Robby does the saving and Victor takes the credit.
Problem is, Victor’s been murdered.
From the opening paragraphs of the first chapter you’re in the thick of the action, and by the end of the first chapter the “hero” is dead. No spoilers there since it says as much in the blurb. After which comes the fallout, with Robby dealing with the death of Victor and the potential new love interest in his life who knows more about him than he’d like.
The sample ends on an infuriating cliff-hanger… infuriating because I desperately wanted to keep reading! I can’t wait for this one to come out. I wish Mister Stevenson the best of luck with his KindleScout campaign and hope he gets picked up. If not, then he’s got a sale in waiting from me.
One last thing… I was seconds away from hitting “publish” when I noticed something in the blurb which made me giggle: “…save his city’s citizens from evil doers – especially the busty ones“. I suspect he’s busy saving busty citizens from evil doers, not saving the citizens from busty evil doers. Though I doubt he’d discriminate… 🙂
While you’re over there, why not check out and nominate my book on KindleScout as well? That way you can get it for free if it’s selected for publication.
If you’ve got an Amazon account you’re already halfway there. Just nip on over and click “Nominate” on my book – The Totally True Adventures of Gustav Gustavson – Legendary Viking Warrior – an if I’m selected when nominations close you’ll get it for free!
Easy as that!
