I got the idea for Women of Power from Feedbooks.com. Feedbooks was one of the early sites to get great ebook downloads (though I think it has suffered a bit since they went commercial). One of the great things among their original books back in 2009 (that lately seem to be all erotica) were fan-fiction commics– mini books with comic book covers that were prose inside. They were mostly based on DC characters like Batman and The Teen Titans. I decided to try my hand at writing one of those.
There was a whole club and web organization which assigned which books each writer was working on. That seemed like a whole lot of trouble to me. Plus I just like to go with my own characters, so that’s what I did. I made up All American Girl and Skygirl and patterned their descriptions after some cover art I purchased for the “comics.” I wrote and posted the first two “issues,” but by the time I had finished “issue” (read chapter) three. I decided that I wanted to make it a full novella. I set it aside and didn’t get back to it for two years.
On a side note, my son and I plotted a sequel to Women of Power, with some ideas that I just love. Unfortunately, I lost my outline for it. I could probably recreate it, if I decide that it warrants a sequel. I have so many other ideas that I’m working on, I may not get to it till I’m 85.
