Guest Authors, Indie Superhero Summer

A Chat with Nancy O’Toole Meservier – #IndieSuperheroSummer


Hello friends, and welcome to the third and final interview of #IndieSuperheroSummer! Today I have the pleasure of welcoming Nancy O’Toole Meservier to the blog. Nancy is the author of Red and Black and it’s brand-new sequel, Black and Blue. This series is about fangirls turned superheroes, cute guys just trying to do the right-wrong thing, and an almost You’ve-Got-Mail type secret identity romance. In short, it’s simply adorable. Plus, we all know I have a soft spot for superhero stories that play into the splash of the genre, so I was really destined to like these books.

Nancy herself is also friendly and deeply enthusiastic about books (and comics!)—but then, what more would you expect from a librarian? You all should absolutely check out both her and her work. Come to her social media for the book talk, stay for the cat pictures. And on that note, let’s see what she has to say!

Super Resources - #IndieSuperheroSummer


Even though superhero fiction is fairly new to the world of written novels (at least in comparison to many other genres), there’s still a whole wealth of history and established tropes from other storytelling mediums. Whether you’re a writer looking to break in, or just a curious reader, there’s bound to be resources that will prove interesting, insightful, or just plain entertaining for you. Below, I’ve listed some of the ones that I’ve found the most useful as I’ve been working with my own superhero fiction. Enjoy!

Indie Superhero Summer, Jenn Recommends

Jenn Recommends... Cinnamon Blade: Knife in Shining Armor by Shira Glassman - #IndieSuperheroSummer


This a short little book, so my recommendation of it is going to be, as well.

Listen, I don’t typically gravitate toward novellas. Nothing against the form, really, just—lack of availability at libraries, the desire to spend more time in the story, etc. typically keeps me from diving into them. Still, this one had been on my radar for a while, because well, f/f superheroes? I mean, I think I’m kind of obligated to give it a try, aren’t I?

5 Useless Superpowers I Already Have - #IndieSuperheroSummer


I’m a firm believer that everyone has some kind of unique and special skill, but let’s be honest: most of them are never going to do us any good. Even if we wanted to, it’s not like we could use our powers at bubble-gum art or double-jointed knuckle cracking for the greater good. Still, these facets pepper all our lives, and make us each just a little bit interesting, in one way or another. So without further ado, here are some of the absolutely useless skills I have and tricks I can perform.
