Happy Friday and happy it's not so hot here today! Hooray! Today I'm reading to you from the first book in Dani Hermit and Nevi Star's Burnouts series - Back Issues. Superheroes, paranormal shenanigans, erotic romance. This excerpt is safe for work and small ears, but I will have content warnings for the story down below. :)
Burn Outs 1
by Dani Hermit & Nevi Star
CW: dub/noncon, tragic backstories, explicit sex, angst, and cliffhangers.
In a world where a select few are granted superpowers, the Chosen are pitted in staged battles of good vs. evil. That is, until a Hero turned against the system and stole everyone's powers.
Can retired Villain Matt Evans restore balance to the world when his long dormant powers mysteriously come back on line? And can he do it while navigating the awkwardness of working with Colton Stevens - a former Hero who used to be Matt's public rival as well as his private lover.
About the Authors:
The writing duo behind several briefly notorious YuGiOh fanfics, Dani Hermit and Nevi Star have been romantically involved for over 20 years, though they have been telling stories together for even longer. A mutual love of slash fan-fiction and high fantasy novels lead to a love for each other that hasn't faded through the years.
Together they created the various incarnations of the characters who would one day emerge as the cast for their original works.
Dani does the cover design both for the Hermit & Star books as well as a side-hustle to pay for coffee. They’ve also been known to crochet odd little creatures, read Tarot, and play a wicked good game of Cards Against Humanity.
Art school survivor Nevi is working on designs for graphic novel versions of the Hermit & Star catalog, as well as drawing cute critters in the kawaii anime style of her own, when she’s not drowning in an ocean of baking shows and home shopping binges.
When not fully emerged in the imaginary worlds they've created, Dani and Nevi spend their time absorbing books, anime, and reality TV. They live in a lovely little community in suburban Indiana with their pirate crew and a few cats.
Angel writes (mostly) Science Fiction and Fantasy centered around queer heroes. Currently living part time in the hectic sprawl of northern Delaware and full time inside her head, she has one husband, one son, two cats, a love of all things beautiful and a terrible addiction to the consumption of both knowledge and chocolate.
