Just a reminder that I’m guest blogging today over at Milady Insanity. Check it out!
I got this book because it’sÂ about superheroes (sort of).Â The book focusesÂ on Belle Jamison, a woman who drinks a secret formula in her mocha latte and is suddenly able to control the four elementsÂ – and finds out that there’s a whole world of people out there with special abilities. Like the sexy Rome Masters, a government agent who’s ordered to bring Belle in — no matter what.
Showalter wrote the book in first person, which I enjoyed (since I write in first person myself).Â Bella had a funny voice, and I really liked Tanner, one of the secondary characters who’s an empath.
I didn’t care too much for Rome. Then again, I usually want to slap the ultra alpha males in most books. But one thingÂ really bothered me –Â when Rome reveals to Belle late in the book that he intended to turn her over to his agency, even though heÂ swore up and down for the last hundred pages not to.
Belle is pissed at first,Â but then, she just forgives him. Just like that. Poof! That’s it. I forgive you. Let’s move on. Personally, I would have fricassed his ass, or frozen his limbs one at a time and then shattered. But hey, that’s just me.
ButÂ overall, thumbs up.Â
What about you? What have you read lately? Inquiring minds want to know …

And here’s another shot of me at Mountain Empire Comics on Saturday.
You know, I really need to figure out how to just post a picture and cutlines. Anybody out there know how to do that? Inquiring minds want to know …
Here’s a shot of me with everyone’s favorite webcrawler, Spider-Man. This was taken during my booksigning Saturday at Mountain Empire Comics in Bristol, Tenn. It was also Free Comics Day.
Thanks to LevÂ Arris for passing these along, and for Robert Pilk for having me at the store on Saturday.Â
