    My first foray into romance...

    Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by X Equestris, Aug 1, 2020.

    ...is now published in Under The Cape: An Anthology of Superhero Romance! Never in my wildest dreams did I envision myself writing an LGBT superhero romance, but this story sank its claws into me and refused to let go.

    "Law, Love, and the Whippoorwill" takes place in 2041, fifteen years after a global economic collapse led to an explosion in government corruption and the birth of costumed criminals. Here's an excerpt from my query letter to serve as a bit of a teaser:

    Honestly, I think it might be the best piece I've ever written. Its characters, action, and intimacy all came together perfectly.

    If you're interested, Under The Cape is available from Amazon, Smashwords, Kobo, Google Play, and the Riverdale Avenue Books website. Here's a link:

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08DX9H1XT

    EDITED TO ADD: I ought to mention that a portion of the proceeds from Under The Cape will be donated to the CDC Foundation as a way to aid real-life heroes fighting the ongoing pandemic.

    Thanks! I'm glad this story was published at all, much less in an anthology as nice as this one. So few markets are interested in superhero prose.
