Thank You for Powering Up!


Add a little bit of body textA month ago, I and a group of friends released a new anthology: The Powers That Be. Nine stories all centered around superpowers featuring stories written by some of my favorite people — WJ Davies, Ann Christy, Carol Davis, Thomas Robins, Logan Thomas Snyder, David Adams, Samuel Peralta, Ernie Lindsey, and my brother Paul Swardstrom.

With a month in the books, I am SUPER thrilled to announce we have surpassed 500 combined sales and borrows. The preorder period was amazing, which led right into a phenomenal and fun Launch Party, but what has been perhaps the most rewarding part is the past few weeks when the price increased and people kept buying and borrowing the collection. We’ve been hanging out in the top 35 of the Amazon top Sci-fi Anthology list since our release with a few appearances in the top 5.

What this means is that we will have over $500 to donate to the Riley Hospital for Children Sickle Cell Clinic thanks to all of you. These donations will be greatly appreciated for a long time.

So…for those who have purchased or borrowed the book — THANK YOU. For those who haven’t — it isn’t too late to get on board.

Oh, and if you’ve read it, we would love a kind review. The more reviews the better as we look towards potential marketing opportunities down the road. Again, a huge thank you to all of you.

    We at the Pen & Cape Society would like to invite you and your fellow anthology authors to visit us. We are a collective of superhero fiction writers dedicated to building awareness of the genre and cross promotion. We are releasing our second anthology in March, which will be a charity item to benefit comic book writer James Hudnall. It seems like your group and ours have aligned ideas and we might join forces, because that’s what superheroes do, right?
