Now let us tell you about this book. The Neighborhood Watch is written for middle-grade readers, but we think adult fans of the Just Cause Universe will enjoy it too. Twelve-year-old Annalisa Torres, also known as La Capitána, is going to be around the JCU for quite awhile. We hope you will enjoy watching her grow up like you have Harry Potter and, well, Mustang Sally. After a year of doing conventions where we had to turn away parents who wanted superhero books for their younger readers and we didn’t have anything to offer them, we knew the time was right to produce The Neighborhood Watch.

The Neighborhood Watch: The blurb

Seventh-grade Superheroes!

It’s not easy being a twelve-year-old superhero, but the five kids of the Neighborhood Watch are doing the best they can. La Capitána: super-strong flier. Wheels: brilliant inventor. Hothead: catches on fire. Breezy: controls wind. Rascal: super-skateboarding. From their headquarters built into a repurposed Winnebago, they patrol the streets and alleys of their small hometown and dream of being Big Time Heroes like Mustang Sally and the rest of Just Cause. Instead, they’re stuck rescuing cats stuck in trees . . . or they would be if their rivals didn’t get there first.

Three superpowered identical triplets, the Culture Club, are the darlings of local media. They never miss a photo opportunity or interview. They always seem to be in the right place at the right time. It just isn’t fair.

When La Capitána manages to stop a real supervillain, it changes everything for the Neighborhood Watch, and sets in motion a chain of events that will mean only one team can come out on top. Will the Culture Club win the day once more, or will the Neighborhood Watch prevail?

The Neighborhood Watch releases on Thursday, September 1st. You can preorder it from Amazon, Smashwords, and iTunes.
