"We're finally here, at the threshold," says author, Russ Linton. "Crimson Son has entered final revisions and is on track for the June release."
The book is slated for release on June 14, 2014. It will be available as an eBook at all major retailers with a paperback to follow shortly.
"Sure, the day before Father's Day is both symbolic and a bit cheesy," admitted Russ Linton. "But the book was deeply inspired by my own experience as a father and the strains a demanding career can place on a family. It deals with complex issues of family and heroism all wrapped in a non-traditional superhero story.”
In Crimson Son, Spencer, son of the Crimson Mask, has been locked away in his father's arctic bunker for his own safety after the kidnapping of his mother by the arch-villain, Black Beetle. After two years spent dreaming of escape, Spencer launches into his father's covert world. As he stumbles through a nest of conspiracy and top secret facilities, gathering together a team of everyday people and cast-off augments, Spencer discovers that the Black Beetle isn't his only enemy, nor his worst.

In the fourth grade, Russ Linton wrote down the vague goal of becoming a “writer and an artist” when he grew up. On a journey that led him from philosopher to graphic designer to stay at home parent and even a stint as an Investigative Specialist with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, he finally got around to that “writing” part which he now pursues full time.
