      @Roccandil Wow, I have to thank you twice for reading my story since I know now that you don’t really read superheroes. I honestly did not know that.

      And wow, you went back to pulp novels! I never read this one, but it sound very interesting! This is definitely a superhero given the description.

      I read something like this from the link:

      “Packard describes him as “Six feet he stood, muscular in every line of his body, like a well-trained athlete with no single ounce of superfluous fat about him—the grace and ease of power in his poise. His strong, clean-shaven face, as the light fell upon it now, was serious—a mood that became him well—the firm lips closed, the dark, reliant eyes a little narrowed, a frown on the broad forehead, the square jaw clamped.”

      And my first thought is, “How did he get this way?” I think for Fiasco I’m starting at that phase, the before hero. Talon actually is where Jimmie is, secure, confident, strong, and competent. Fiasco wants to get there.

      I think you might be please with the rest of the story, but I’m not 100% sure lol.

        Wow, this has been an experience getting my first novel published. Six months since I’ve decided to publish Fiasco of Adventures and it’s still not done. I might have to do an entire thread on what NOT to do when it comes to self publishing lol. So many think took far longer than expected to get completed. But, I have my first proof copy in hand and the cover came out extremely dark, so it’s back to the artist. I would say, with the turn around from the printer, this is still about a month away. But better to have it done right than rushed!

        Hope the next printing is the charm! Need some prayers, and a lot of luck, lol.

            @Roccandil Hey thanks! Couldn’t have done it without your input. This was a long, hard slog, and took way longer than I expected. I learned a lot of lessons on what NOT to do when self-publishing, but I think it came out very well in the end. And yeah, I love that cover! That actually took the longest to do but it was worth it, I think. Now I need to get the people to read it lol.

            Thanks again for all your help. It’s probably a little different in the from what you read because, wow, did I have to edit it down a lot to get it down to a reasonable page count lol.

              I went ahead and made a linktree since my book keeps popping up in places and I get no notification.  More options the better!

              Thanks for reading if you do!
