TIME SPENT Book Launch Date and Cover Reveal!

In February, 2013, I self-published my science fiction / superhero novel MISSING TIME.  The novel has been well-received, particularly by comics fans, several of whom have blogged about and reviewed it. The website Nerdspan.com wrote:

Missing Time by J. David Clarke is a fast moving, fascinating, and fastidious super hero novel. Inspired by comic books, and the worlds of superheroes, Missing Time takes the concept of ordinary people being changed into extraordinary individuals one step further…amongst constant pop culture references, quippy dialogue, and vivid descriptions, J. David Clarke was weaving a complex story around a few engaging characters and that nothing was quite what it seemed…Missing Time is the first part in a three part series that promises to present super heroes in a way fans haven’t quite seen them before. After reading the first volume, I can’t wait for the second…or the third. One thing is clear, I have no idea where this story is heading, but I am pretty sure that if I did, it wouldn’t actually be there. I think J. David Clarke is headed for a destination that will surprise and delight even the most jaded of super hero fans.”

If you haven’t read MISSING TIME, buy it on any eReader or in print from CreateSpace or Amazon, because on October 15, 2013, the passengers of School Bus 313 return for an even more dangerous leg of their journey.

“If you leave me here, you won’t like what happens next!”  The mystery of MISSING TIME is over.  Now, the passengers of school bus 313 must deal with an even greater threat, as dangerously powerful foes are unleashed in their world.  Even worse, they are plagued by memories of an event they don’t fully understand.  They must piece together the threads of what happened: the rooftop, the cracks in the sky, and a strange otherworldly being.  Is the bus driver’s prophecy coming true?  The end is closer than you think.

I promise even more twists, turns, triumph and tragedy than ever before.  TIME SPENT is an action superhero story with a suspenseful mystery at its core, a mystery concerning a powerful threat the likes none of these characters has ever seen before.  Along the way you will delve further in the histories of the characters and root out the events that have made them who they are, and may make them entirely the wrong people to save the world.

TIME SPENT is coming OCTOBER 15, 2013 to Kindle, Amazon and CreateSpace and will appear soon thereafter on all other eReaders, including Apple iPhone and iPad, Barnes & Noble Nook, Sony and Kobo.   Drop by and like my Facebook page for regular updates!


Now, here’s a look at the new cover designed by photographic artist (and genius friend) Kimi A. Phillips!
