I’m a little late getting here this time around, but I finally have a cover to unveil for “Secret Identity: My True-Life Adventure as a Superhero.” The first installment of my serialized memoir about childhood in the 1970’s lands on Monday, November 3. (Just six days away!)
Here’s a look at the latest awesome cover by award-winning designer, Jill Jess:
Want to know more about the book? Here’s the blurb:
What happens when an eight-year-old boy decides he wants to be a superhero like the ones he sees on TV? Hilarity!
John Phythyon was not an ordinary kid. Growing up in De Pere, Wisconsin in the 1970’s, he was obsessed with superheroes and adventure. And after reading Alvin Fernald, Superweasel by Clifford B. Hicks in third grade, he was certain he too could become a caped crusader.
In this sidesplitting mini-memoir, the author of The Sword and the Sorcerer, Beauty & the Beast: A Modern Fairy Tale, and the Wolf Dasher series explains his childhood obsession with masked defenders of All That Is Good and True and how he was determined to sneak out of the house one October night in 1976 to join their ranks.
Funny, charming, and sentimental, “Secret Identity: My True-Life Adventure as a Superhero” is a quick read that will have you laughing at the outrageous and totally true adventures of a ’70’s kid whose imagination far outran common sense.
Remember, the book’s out Monday. Make sure you get a copy, so you can laugh at me just like my friends in school did!
