Superhero Shoots His Author: The New Pitch For Becoming Hero



It's almost like teen superhero Skye lives in a bad comic book. Mobsters! Aliens! Plant-zombies! Major girl problems with ninjas included! Skye's losing everyone he loves, and he's got his conflict-hungry author to blame. Every time tragedy strikes, Skye claws out of the rubble and drags himself to his feet. At least he's always got his best friend, right? Until the author writes #339. Skye's best friend kills him. 

Or so he thinks. Skye's life, now with ridiculous inter-dimensional physics! The weapon meant to disintegrate Skye lands him in his author's universe, where a kind inner-city cop takes him in. The cop's son Jace, a quiet comic book aficionado, tries to ease the wounded hero out of PTSD--but Skye won't take help for his nightmares. He won't tell anyone he's "fictional," and the author's still torturing his friends in the comic books. Skye's never killed before, but he's getting angry enough to steal a firearm, creep into the author's high rise, and-- 

As Skye's mood swings and nightmares escalate, Jace realizes that if he doesn't uncover his roommate's real identity soon, Skye will hurt someone--and Skye must decide if one murder will save his world, or damn his soul.

This is the new pitch for my high-concept, 80,000-word YA, Becoming Hero! Does it sound like something you would read?
