Hey! I’ve got a new middle grade illustrated novel coming out May 2 called, “How To Be a Supervillain” from Jimmy Books (Little, Brown). Pre-order it online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Books-A-Million or Powell’s Books and send me a copy of your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address and I’ll send you a FREE PIECE OF ORIGINAL ART!
It’s for kids ages 7-14, but I wrote and I think it’s funny, and I’m an adult and by the transitive property (I think) all adults should enjoy it. Q.E.D.
Here’s a brief description written by professional description writers (not me):
Victor Spoil comes from a long line of famous supervillains and he’s fully expected to join their ranks one day. But to his family’s utter disappointment, Victor doesn’t have a single bad-guy bone in his body. He won’t run with scissors, he always finishes his peas, and he can’t stand to be messy. Hopeless!
As a last-ditch effort before they give up and let him be a–gasp!–civilian, Victor’s exasperated parents send him to apprentice under a disgraced supervillain called The Smear. This matchup starts off as a complete disaster, but Victor and The Smear eventually find that they have a lot to learn from each other. When the stakes get high as Victor is forced to choose between his mentor and his family morals (or lack thereof)…what will the world’s nicest bad guy do?
In this rollicking middle-grade adventure, Michael Fry’s witty text and hysterical artwork combines superhero action with classic fish-out-of-water humor.
Again, just send me a receipt for your online pre-order to email@example.com and I’ll send one fine piece of original art. Amaze your friends! Decorate your fridge! Sell it on eBay!
