The latest revision is being reviewed by my agent, and will hopefully go out to editors soon.
Back up – what the what is Suckerpunch?
Suckerpunch is the first book in a series featuring heavyweight mixed martial artist Aaron “Woodshed” Wallace, who is stuck on no-name cards for tiny organizations. Woody is trying to put his violent (and, ahem, possibly illegal) past behind him with help from his trainer and mentor, Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt Gil Hobbes.
When Banzai Eddie Takanori – president of MMA’s largest organization, Warrior Inc. – offers Woody a short-notice fight against a highly favored poster boy, Woody sees his shot at salvation.
By the time Woody figures out he’s just a pawn in a high-stakes game between psychopaths, he’s in way too deep.
Good thing he knows how to take a punch.
And give a few back…
