Welcome to the first post of Legends and Legacies, the blog about superhero and adventure fiction written in Australia!
My name is David Kachel, and I have written and self-published a superhero novel called “Legacy: The Tale of the American Eagle.”
It tells the tale of American Eagle, a non-powered crimefighter from the city of St. Theodore, who suffers a great loss in the war on drugs. Deciding to take matters into his own hands, the costumed crusader journeys the world, aiming to destroy this poison at the source. But he is going up against powerful people, people with a vision for the future that doesn’t include his kind. And American Eagle gets caught up in a conspiracy to alter the future of all mankind..
It is the first book in my hopefully-ever-expanding Legends and Legacies Universe, and is available online from Lulu (the self-publishing site) and Amazon. (Links below)
For those of you who like to try before you buy, a link to the first edition content on Metahuman Press is below.
Metahuman Press is the cause of all of this, a site that began by publishing superhero fiction in serialised form online, and has expanded to produce novels, graphic novels, anthologies and ebooks under the helm of editor Nicholas Ahlehelm. I cannot plug this man enough, as his contributions to the world of creator-owned fiction is immense and he is a damned good writer too.
So read the first edition of my first book, then buy a copy online. An ebook version will be coming soon, and all paid versions include extra edited content and a bonus Christmas chapter, a poem co-written with Adam Duncan (another name sure to be mentioned frequently on this site.)
This post is a look back into the past, the origins of Legends and Legacies, but check in soon for what’s to come, because it’s going to be a big year…
