Failstate: Nemesis is here!

Nemesis--Front Cover--01Holy cow, where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday, I was nervously putting together the outline for my final (for now) Failstate book. It seems like just a few scant moments ago when I turned it in to the publisher. It seems like just a heartbeat earlier that I worked through the edits, proofed the galleys, and drooled all over the fantastic cover. In each of those instants, it felt like the actual release date was a far way off in the future, a nebulous “sometime” that might not actually get here.

Well, it’s here, folks. The time has come. Failstate: Nemesis is now available via Amazon, both as an ebook and as a paper copy.

I had a lot of fun writing this one and I really hope you’ll enjoy reading it too! Be sure to get your copy today.

Here’s what you’ll find on the back cover:

Abaddon will destroy you all!

Robin Laughlin (a.k.a. the superhero Failstate) has finally achieved his dream. Not only is he a licensed vigilante, but he’s respected by his fellow heroes, feared by criminals, and he’s finally achieved peace in his family, especially with his brother, Ben (a.k.a. the superhero Gauntlet). That, plus the love of his girlfriend, Charlene, has made life good.

But then Failstate learns a secret about his father. Rather than the loving family man he remembers, Failstate’s father was a criminal who got himself killed when he crossed the wrong people. Before he can process this new information, he receives a warning that a villain named Abaddon is coming to New Chayton. The message is all the more disturbing since it’s delivered by Lux. She died in Failstate’s arms a year earlier. How can she possibly be alive?

Those mysteries will have to wait, though, as Abaddon storms New Chayton, strewing death and destruction in his wake. But he’s not the only newcomer. Unusual heroes are appearing throughout the city.

Can Failstate get to the bottom of the reappearance of Lux, the influx of new heroes, and the truth behind his father’s past–all while keeping Abaddon at bay? Abaddon may prove to be Failstate’s greatest nemesis. But what will Failstate have to sacrifice along the way?


To answer the question that might be on your mind, I don’t know when the book will come to Nook or Kobo. When it does, I’ll get the word out!
