Thanks for everybody’s patience! Small Town Heroes took much longer to finish than I expected, and I hope it has been worth the wait. Also thanks to everyone who ran out and grabbed it as soon as it was up, SMT has been doing at least as well in Amazon’s Superhero category as the previous books. And now for everyone waiting for the paperback edition, it is also available through Amazon here.
Now that it’s done, I don’t mind saying that I worried for awhile there. It took longer than I would have liked to find new cover artist who could do justice to the covers done by Viktoria; the even better news there is it looks like Jamal will be the principle artist for the RPG as well. I have floated the note that the working title for the next Wearing the Cape book is Ronin Games, and this one will “return” to a plotline I had developed for Astra and the Young Sentinels in Japan. I won’t point to a release-date, but I will say that I will work very hard to make it happen sooner than happened for Small Town Heroes.
On the RPG front, things are looking better and better for using FATE as the base system, and I will let everyone here know when playtesting begins again. On that note, I want to give a shout-out to a group of my readers in England who tested the game using Cortex Plus to create their heroes; they told me what happened in Great Britain following the Event, and it’s going into the final rulebook!
Anyway, hope everyone’s enjoying Small Town Heroes; as always, comments more than welcome, and thank you to everyone who has taken the time to put up an Amazon review! -M.G.Harmon
