About the Book

I know that edits will rear their ugly heads some time in the near future, but I'm kinda hoping that the basics of my book will stay the same (says she, with tongue planted firmly in cheek). As in, I'm willing to make many changes, but not any changes. For example, I might protest if someone suggested that I change my seventeen-year-old girl narrator into a seventy-six year old Swedish goatherder. Although it probably would be funny, now that I think of it.

Anyway, with no further ado, here is the basic plot for my book, currently and tentatively titled Superbly Useless:

In a world where Supers are commonplace, having powers doesn’t make Mira Mason’s life any easier. Mira has problems up the yingyang. She’s smart as bleep but turns into a monosyllabic moron every time she tries to talk to her crush. Her father is quite possibly rat-in-a-coffee-can insane. Bubbles McMasters, aka She of the Stupid Name and Evil Disposition, won’t stop picking on her. Just when it seems like things can’t possibly get worse, a voyeuristic new supervillain starts peeping at Mira’s classmates, and Bubbles tries to convince everyone that it’s Mira in disguise. Mira must prove once and for all that she is not Princess Peeps-a-lot, and to do that, she’ll have to catch the real perv.

Can you tell how excited I am? I'm going to start annoying myself if this keeps up much longer.

It sounds fun! I mean Fun! Capital F!

If you're not going to use the goatherder thing, can I have it?

The goatherder is yours. Although when it becomes a major bestseller, I might show up at your doorstep demanding kickbacks. ;)
