Little Help Here
So, for those of you that don’t know, I’ve written a novel called The Amelia Academy: Standards. Standards is the story of Chris; former superhero, now slacker. Chris became embittered with the entire flights and tights lifestyle in the nineties, and these days would be happier to just sink into obscurity.
Chris is dragged back into the super hero community when a former villain, Mr. Godfrey, contacts him. Fresh out of jail, Godfrey is also looking to get away from the hero/villain life, and is opening a school for metahuman children. He wants to teach them that despite their powers, their differences, they can live ordinary lives. Godfrey wants Chris to teach in this school.
Reluctant at first, Chris is soon convinced, and finds himself again deep in the spandex crowd. Old friends and foes surface, as does a plot to destroy the fledling school before it can open its doors. A plot that targets Chris as much as it targets the Amelia Academy.
So, sales pitch aside, here’s the thing. The Amelia Academy is already available as a e-book. I’ve had several reviews, and all say the same thing. Great story, great characters, grammar needs work.
I’m alright editing, but not great (evidently). So here’s the plan. I’m going to edit a chapter every day or two, and post them. Free for you to read. In return, I’m hoping you’ll all be willing to just jump in if you see a mistake, or a sentence that needs work. Serious; be mean, I don’t take it personal. I’m looking in the end to get The Amelia Academy out in traditional print; hopefully with an actual publisher. Still, step at a time.
Anyways, if you want to play along, that’d be great.
