Becca’s Review Forum

Published by under Review Forums

I provide advice about how to write novels, comic books and graphic novels. Most of my content applies to fiction-writing in general, but I also provide articles specifically about superhero stories.

Who am I? Hey. I’m Becca. I’m eighteen, Creative Writing Major, Canadian (I live in that city where the Olympics will be). I’ve been writing since I was six, but only got super-serious about it about four years ago.

What am I writing? More like what aren’t I writing?! But what I’ll be posting here for review is a novel called The Superhero Effect, written in NaNo 09 and beyond. Basically I got thinking… what if a superhero didn’t have a secret identity, or a day job? What if being a superhero was his job? And that lead me to write The Superhero Effect, which takes place in a somewhat near future in a city taken over by gangs, and where superheroes are employed by the police in an elite task force, and called SCFs – Specialized Crime Fighters.

Target Audience? It’s YA. I’m thinking it would have much the same audience as Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games, as its level of violence is much the same, as is its slight romantic subplot.

Notes for Reviewers: Be honest, but polite and sympathetic. It’s a NaNo novel, not revised yet, and I know there are some rough patches. Hopefully posting it here will help smooth the rewrites and edits I know I have to do. Thanks guys!
