Double Down with New Lois Lane YA
Gwenda Bond’s Fallout: Lois Lane came out only a few months ago, however, a sequel has already been announced. Alex and I interviewed Bond for What the Fangirl about the process of writing a teenage Lois, and loved the book, so we’re excited for this installment. Bond announced the sequel a few weeks ago but now the official press release from Switch Press is available. I’ve got an excerpt below about the new novel, Lois Lane: Double Down.
DC Comics’ iconic character Lois Lane will be back for more in Lois Lane: Double Down, the second book in a new series from Switch Press, the Young Adult imprint of Capstone. Following the success of the first book in the series, Lois Lane: Fallout, author Gwenda Bond returns with a new story of the adventures of a teenage Lois Lane, as she begins to discover her passion for journalism and become the character loved by generations of fans.
“Lois Lane is an icon, one of the most well-known and enduring figures in American pop culture–and for good reason,” says Bond. “She’s a hero all of us can relate to. It’s been a tremendous honor and a great pleasure to get to write about her in an all-new way, as a modern teenager, and I’m thrilled to be continuing her story in Double Down.”
Sidenote: Bond had just turned in the Lois Lane: Double Down manuscript only an hour or so before interviewing with us, so if you doubt she has superhero abilities, she seriously, seriously does.
Visit GwendaBond.com for more information on her other books (including the great Girl on a Wire), to see her tour schedule and more. You can also follow her on Twitter @gwenda.
Lois Lane: Double Down will be released May 1, 2016. This isn’t the final cover, but it sure is awesome.
