And because I'm so magnanimous, here's some talk about other people's books, too!
Pat Dilloway has been a blogger buddy for a few years now, and one of his major projects has been the release of his Scarlet Knight series. He's had ebooks available for a while, but recently completed the paperback editions. Here's a helpful listing for all!
- A Hero's Journey
- Time Enough to Say Goodbye
- The Hazards of Love
- Change of Heart
- Betrayal Begets Blood
- Future Shocks
- Living Sacrifice
- The Heart of Emma Earl
I've only read Hero's Journey so far. It's fair to say that Pat and I have different ideas on how to write a superhero novel (he hated my own, Cloak of Shrouded Men), but his Scarlet Knight rings true to the classic Adam West Batman (now with less camp!), and I grew up watching that stuff (and even Batman's publisher, DC, is getting in on the nostalgia of that TV series, with a new comic book dedicated to its legacy). Pat has shifted it into an obviously more ambitious and expansive experience. Word to the wise: his favorite is the concluding volume, Heart of Emma Earl.
And like everyone else is doing, I'm also taking a moment today to celebrate the release of Alex Cavanaugh's conclusion of his space opera trilogy! You can find CassaStorm here! I've read this book, thanks to an advanced reader from Good Reads (where you can find my full review), and can give a generally positive review, thanks to Alex's ambitious concepts and his ability to tie up loose ends the author didn't even realize were left dangling by previous volumes. You don't need me to tell you about this one, though. The ninja captain is the patron saint of this blogging community, after all!
