Hi everyone! I’m feeling much better, though still taking it easy. There will not be a month map for June, but there IS a release on its way!
My writer’s group, the Just-Us League, is releasing their second anthology on June 17th. This one is titled Between Heroes and Villains: A Superpower Anthology and will feature twelve unique takes on superpowers, including my own short story, “In A Breath”.
I’ll be doing a cover reveal for it either later this week or early next (the designer is finalizing it), but I can share the blurb as a first little teaser!
What is the difference between a hero and a villain?
A hero should always use their power for good: a detective devotes his life to chasing gifted villains; a girl uses her frost powers to rescue her father; a weary sidekick faces her childhood nemesis; and a young man must protect his loved ones against a tyrannical authority.
But having unique gifts means facing tough decisions: a doctor must choose between saving his reputation or his patient; a young woman saves a drowning man and finds herself in danger as a result; a student discovers the consequences of choice; and a wannabe hero takes on a supervillain hoping she’ll be invited to the hero’s league.
And the line between good and evil is oftentimes blurred: a self-made hero crosses that line to save the world; a lovesick henchman blindly follows his master’s orders; a mentor attempts to prevent a pupil from being drawn to villainy; a superpowered military team questions their orders despite the inevitable consequences.
Follow these men and women as they set out to save themselves, and the world, from the great evils around them.
