So, my superhero novella "The Place Between" was published today by Timid Pirate Publishing as paired with Erik Scott de Bie's "Eye For An Eye" into "Cobalt City: Double Feature"

(image removed)


    Packed to the brim with superhero adventures of magic and technology, Cobalt City Double Features brings you two exciting novella length stories written by some of Cobalt’s favorite authors! Your recommended blockbuster reading for Summer 2012.

    The Place Between by Minerva Zimmerman (“Muffin Everlasting” and “Apples and Arrows”) breathes life into the world of the Norse Gods. In 1975, Cole Washington returned home from the U.S. Army bearing the mantle of Thor. Taking the name Midnight Thunder, he waged war against Loki for the soul of the West Key neighborhood, if not all of Cobalt City, for over a decade. Now it’s 2012, and it’s time for the title of Thor to be passed to his daughter Tera as she forges her own identity as Tempest. But this time, the battle lines are not so clear. And Lucky, one of the aspects of Loki, might be her best chance of surviving her trials.

    Eye for an Eye by Erik Scott de Bie (Shadowbane, “Vengeance on the Layover”) shakes up the happy family life of Cobalt City’s brightest star, Stardust. Injured, on the run, and without a friend in the world, Lady Vengeance returns to Cobalt City. Stardust can’t be sure which is more dangerous—the murderous vigilante chasing her, the dark secret which grants Lady Vengeance her powers, or the threat this dangerously sexy bad-girl poses to his family life. Is it a team-up or a free-for-all? And is Cobalt City big enough to contain the sheer firepower all sides are willing to unleash to assure victory?


You can read an excerpt here (timidpirate.com)

Timid Pirate is a small indie publisher and Cobalt City is their shared superhero world. I'm building off of the character Midnight Thunder created in The War At Home (timidpirate.com) by Nathan Crowder

it is available for Kindle (The W at Amazon)
and Nook (as soon as B&N gets it up, which hasn't happened yet, I'll edit this later with info)
or in Kindle/Nook/PDF bundle directly from the publisher (timidpirate.com)

If you enjoy non-traditional superhero stories and Norse Mythology humor, you'll probably dig my story. If not, I'm happy to have you buy the book to pan my story too.

Is that your real first name or a pseudonym, Lise?

Real middle name. Usually people don't mix me up with the knitter of the same name, so it works best.
