Time to bring the Best Week Ever to a close with a bang and the announcement you’ve all been waiting for: Action Figures – Issue Five: Team-Ups is officially available for the Kindle!
Here’s the official back cover blurb, so you all know what you’ll be in for…
The Hero Squad is finished.
Their friendships damaged in the wake of the King of Pain incident, perhaps beyond repair, the team go their separate ways to lick their wounds and figure out where their respective paths will take them…and if those paths will ever lead back to each other.
“Team-Ups” features a series of individual adventures that partner the Hero Squad with unexpected friends and pit them against some surprising foes. Sara finally learns the price of her betrayal; Matt and Nina Nitro go hunting for superhuman fugitives; Carrie gets a rematch with Manticore that takes a shocking turn; Stuart follows Dr. Enigma into Boston’s magical underworld in search of a powerful and dangerous artifact; Missy gets a lesson in taking names and kicking ass from the Entity; and it all leads to Carrie finally learning the truth behind her fantastic powers…but is she willing to pay their terrible cost?
There’s only one thing that could make this Best Week Ever even better for me: if I finally manage to crack a number one spot on Amazon with Team-Ups. All four Action Figures books have cracked the top ten and two titles — Secret Origins and Cruel Summer — reached number two.
I concede readily this is purely an ego thing. Snagging a number one spot on an Amazon best-seller list means bragging rights and nothing much in the way of practical gains, but dammit, I’d love me some braggin’ rights, so if you’re planning to pick up the book, do it today and push this baby to the top! And please don’t forget to leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads. Thanks!
PS: I wrote this post yesterday afternoon, around three or so, immediately after the book went live. One reader has already blown through it and contacted me with some kind words about the story. That someone bought the book as soon as it came out and cranked through the whole thing in a matter of hours is one of the best compliments I could receive.
