My friend and fellow writer/blogger/genius, Aaron Dietz, has published his first novel, Super – and he’s doing some seriously crazy marketing for this book.
Synopsis (shamelessly swiped from Aaron’s site): Do you need a new job? Does the world need another superhero?
You see the connection, don’t you? If you had the chance to save lives…could you handle the adventure? The pressure, the risk, the grotesque, the insane? Most of all, could you handle your humanity? Update your resume, ‘cause here we go. Either stick with being sucked down further into your life, or earn the lift-off of the elite.
Aaron Dietz’s debut novel moves with an experimental edge into America’s heroic mythology. Structured as a novel-length job application for a superhero agency, Dietz uses his iron touch to explore themes that go far deeper than the swashbuckling world of comics and costumes. It’s a story about commitment, ability, bureaucracy, possibility, crisis, and heartbreak. Super.

Aaron’s put together this nifty video on how to make your own little booklet from the chapter right here:
You can purchase your own discounted copy of Super from Amazon.com for $10.88. Pretty good price for a pretty super book, I’d say.
As of the beginning of this week, Super has made it to No. 21,000-something on the Amazon rankings. I’m going to use my post to make a personal plea to Aaron to seriously consider putting the book out on Kindle (my new obsession). So Aaron – put it on Kindle – Pleeeeease?! Pretty please?!
But while you’re at it, head over to Aaron’s Super page, where you can navigate, get some cool promotional downloads, read some excerpts and reviews, get to know the man behind the book, and download and submit your very own Superhero application to Emergency Press.
Super is a novel written by Aaron Dietz, designed by Charlie Potter, and published by Emergency Press. Thanks to Aaron for asking me to become a part of the Super Action Team, for which I am not compensated but do get the personal sense of satisfaction in knowing I’ve helped out a fellow writer.
