One thing I decided to do to get myself out of the editing knot I’ve gotten myself into is write a synopsis of my work-in-progress. It’s a blended approach of the two drafts of the novel I’ve written so far, the best parts of which I’ve felt have come organically. Who the hell needs an outline?
At any rate, below is the synopsis. Have a read, and let me know what you think!
Immortal. Dr. Vengeance. They were once, respectively, the World’s Greatest Superhero, and the Most Fearsome Supervillain Alive. Their battles were the stuff of legend, their names part of the new mythology. Their lives intertwined like no other hero or villain’s lives ever before
Then, Immortal’s decline and abrupt retirement, followed by Dr. Vengeance’s surprise capture, left a void no other heroes or villains could seem to fill. In the years that followed, Immortal adjusted to retirement by taking up therapy, while Dr. Vengeance underwent a controversial rehabilitation for his crimes. Neither would admit it, but Immortal and Dr. Vengeance missed their superhero/supervillain lifestyle. Retirement, whether self-imposed or forced, sucks.
But when an old flame returns to rekindle Immortal’s flame, and a familiar enemy re-emerges, Immortal must do the unthinkable: form a very uneasy alliance with Dr. Vengeance, and defeat this new threat, without killing each other first over past resentments.
Part psychodrama, part love story, part screwball comedy, WORKING TITLE* is unlike any superhero story you’ve ever read.
* I really haven’t come up with a good title I’ve been satisfied with, hence WORKING TITLE.
