Arena Mode: A Sci-Fi/Superhero Novel by Blake NorthcottMarch 5th, 2013
Canadian writer of the highly regarded Kindle books, Vs. Reality and Relapse, Blake Northcott, is launching her new novel, Arena Mode, via Kickstarter. The premise of the book is a future where superhumans are real, but mostly keep to themselves. Until an apparently bored billionaire announces a no-holds-barred fighting tournament where only superhumans are allowed to participate. Along with Northcott’s prior success in the science fiction novel world, she has enlisted these famous artists from Marvel and DC Comics to do the character designs: Barry Kitson, Dan Panosian, Dave Johnson, Derek Laufman, Mark McKenna, and Thor Mangila.
Northcott has posted the book’s prologue on her blog for those who are interested in reading an excerpt. She’s already raised enough to trigger several pledge goals, including creation of a tabletop RPG as a free bonus.
If you pledge $25 you get the digital book plus a signed, limited edition paperback hardcopy. If you go for the top pledge of $10,000, Northcott will hand deliver the book to your door! Get in before the pledges close on March 14, 2013.
