    Copy to go with the Shades Of Gray cover

    Hot off the editor’s desk. WARNING: Here there be BLACK AND WHITE spoilers, so if you haven’t read B&W and you wanna, STOP READING THIS BLOG POST.


    Okay, don’t say I didn’t warn you…


    On the front cover:

    What lies between day and night, between black and white, between wrong and right?


    Jackie Kessler and Caitlin Kittredge
    Authors of Black and White

    On the back cover:


    Jet and Iridium—best friends turned bitter enemies—teamed up to foil the evil plans of the rogue superhero known as Night, but in defeating him they inadvertently destroyed the secret Corp-Co transmitter whose frequency kept the meta-powered heroes of The Squadron in line. Now these heroes have turned against New Chicago, ransacking the city they once protected.

    Even worse, the powerful anti-superhero group known as Everyman has taken advantage of the chaos to fan the flames of prejudice against all super-powered men and women. Just when New Chicago needs them most, Jet and the small band of heroes who have remained on the right side of the law find themselves the targets of suspicion and outright hatred.

    Things aren’t going much better for Iridium. When she springs her father, a notorious super-villain, from prison to help her fight the marauding ex-superheroes, she finds that Corp-Co still has some nasty tricks up its sleeve.

    But when the most dangerous man alive, the sociopath known as Doctor Hypnotic, suddenly surfaces, Jet and Iridium will once again be called upon to set aside their differences. Yet in the process, deeply buried secrets will come to light that will change everything the former best friends think they know about each other and themselves.

    Praise for Black and White:
    “Jet and Iridium’s multifaceted relationship will appeal to all who have come to want more from their superheroes than good vs. evil and mindless battles.” — Publishers Weekly

    “A fast-paced and compelling take on superheroes. 4 stars.” — Romantic Times


    There’s a lot more to SHADES OF GRAY than what will be on the back cover, of course. Some tidbits:

    More back story: Along with the main story that takes place immediately following the events of BLACK AND WHITE, there will be a THEN section that focuses on Jet’s and Iridium’s parents. That’s right: You get to see how it all began. (Well. Sort of.)

    More points of view: Along with Jet and Iridium (with me writing Jet’s POV and Caitlin writing Iridium’s POV, as before), you will get POVs from Vixen and Luster (written by Caitlin) and Angelica and Night (written by me).

    More fight scenes: Really? This needs explaining?

    4. I’ve been very curious about the parents. And I wonder if there’s anything to stop Jet from going crazy. I think the answers will be found at that lab.

      Did Night plan the attack on Iridum, and Jet’s boyfriend? It seems like he did.
