Eilis Flynn's Sonika

Every once in a while, I get a press release by e-mail, the latest being on a new publication by a former DC Comics staff member, Elizabeth (Eilis) Flynn, who's written a new comic-related e-book called Sonika. I may as well publish the press release over here:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SUPER-HEROES MOVE TO E-BOOKS (BUT THE COSTUMES ARE STILL SKIN-TIGHT)

Former DC Scripter’s “Introducing Sonika” To Be Published As A Cerridwen Press E-Book on December 13

( Seattle , WA – December 6, 2007) Fans of super-heroes -- whether in comic books, graphic novels, television, movies, or the Internet – will get a chance to meet a new super-heroine — Sonika, who can convert sound into solid form — in a new medium —E-Books — on December 13, 2007.

They’ll learn something else, too — that even super-heroes fall in love.

Sonika is actually 28-year-old Sonya Penn, a Gen Y gal working hard as a physical therapist in order to pay off the enormous medical bills that remained after her parents’ deaths. Like so many of her generation, her career has left her no time for romance. But unlike so many others like her, the medical bills she’s working hard to pay off were incurred when her super-hero parents were killed by their arch-nemesis, Gentleman Geoffrey.

Sonya could hardly know that when she met her newest client, he would not only turn out to be John Arlen, the heir to an engineering fortune, but that he, too, was injured by a super-villain.

In order to keep the brilliant scientist from getting himself killed in his misguided quest for revenge, Sonya travels down two paths she never expected to — she’s becoming the super-heroine she swore she’d never become... and she’s falling in love.

About Eilis Flynn

Introducing Sonika is Eilis Flynn’s third book for Cerridwen Press (following The Sleeper Awakes and Festival of Stars). She began her career as a writer of super-heroes during her college years at the University of Washington , writing as Elizabeth M. Smith. On Saturdays, she would meet her doctoral-candidate brother for breakfast and sleepily plot stories later sold to DC Comics for its line of Superman stories. She has also written “30-Day Guarantee,” an online graphic novella, for MyRomanceStory.com. Eilis was recently featured in a Seattle Weekly article about romance writers of color (while her surname is Irish, her ancestry is Japanese).

Readers are encouraged to sign up for Eilis Flynn’s monthly newsletter at www.EilisFlynn.com, or write to her at EilisFlynn@aol.com.

Strangely enough, the name of the villain, Gentleman Geoffrey, reminds me of one of the villains from the New Gods, who called himself G. Gordon Godfrey during Darkseid's attempt to take over Earth in 1987.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
